New co-showrunner Andrew Chambliss said: “As Morgan Jones steps into the world of FTWD, he’ll be continuing the journey he began on The Walking Dead way back in the pilot.

“Ian [Goldberg] and I were huge fans of the character when Lennie James first brought him to life back then, again when he returned in season 3, and finally when he became a series regular in season 6.”

Chambliss added “When we first met Lennie, he impressed upon us how much he cared about the character and how important it was to him for us to take Morgan to places we hadn’t seen before. It’s been a great challenge to set for ourselves, and it’s what we hope to do with the character — to push Morgan to places he could only get by coming into contact with the characters on Fear. They’ll change him. And, at the same time, he’ll change them.”

In season four of Fear the Walking Dead, we will see the world of Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and her family through new eyes - the eyes of Morgan Jones (Lennie James), joining the story from the world of The Walking Dead.

The characters’ immediate past mixes with an uncertain present of struggle and discovery as they meet new friends, foes and threats.  They fight for each other, against each other and against a legion of the dead to somehow build an existence against the crushing pressure of lives coming apart.

There will be darkness and light; terror and grace; the heroic, mercenary, and craven, all crashing together towards a new reality for Fear the Walking Dead.

Aside from Lennie James, three more new cast members have joined the series. Lost star Maggie Grace will play Althea.

"Althea is someone who is uniquely qualified to survive - to thrive, even - in this world because of who she was before the apocalypse," says co-showrunner Ian Goldberg.

He added: "We have been fans of Maggie Grace for a long time - she brings an intelligence, sensitivity, and innate strength to Althea that has been really exciting to watch”

Garret Dillahunt has been cast as new arrival John. Showrunner Ian Goldberg told Entertainment Weekly: “John is a man of fascinating contradictions.

“He loves people but has spent a great deal of time on his own. He’s a gentle soul — an innocent in many ways — but is no stranger to violence. He can be soft-spoken and disarmingly funny all at once."

Dillahunt is a huge Walking Dead fan, who put himself forward to play Negan in The Walking Dead. His TV credits include HBO’s Deadwood, Raising Hope, The Mindy Project and Justified.

Jenna Elfman joins the show as Naomi. "Naomi's a capable survivor we'll meet living on her own early on in the season," co-showrunner Andrew Chambliss told Entertainment Weekly.

"She'll have her guard up as she crosses paths with Madison and her family, and — as we'll learn over the course of the season — she'll have a very good reason for keeping people at a distance. Even so, she'll end up developing some connections that surprise her, including a bond with Alicia."
