The Fear the Walking Dead season 6 cast brings back everyone from season 5, while also introducing new characters into the mix who will undoubtedly shake up the storyline. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fear the Walking Dead season 6 was forced to shut down production in early 2020, which led to the new season being delayed and ultimately occupying the flagship series’ slot in October.
Fear the Walking Dead season 6 will presumably run for the rest of the year before taking a hiatus and returning sometime in 2021. Given that the series couldn’t resume production until late summer/early fall, it’s unclear how long the gaps between episodes will be. But the fact that most of the cast is split up, at least at the start of the season, could help with production in the long run.Continue scrolling to keep reading
