AMC and PosterSpy are inviting you to create an alternative poster for the fourth season of Fear the Walking Dead, which makes its UK TV debut Monday the 23rd April 2018 (please check your local listing for tune-in information)

FEAR Season 4 premieres with the much-anticipated series crossover event. Fan favourite “Morgan Jones” from The Walking Dead joins the cast of FEAR as a series regular.

The story:

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.” 

Produced by AMC Studios, Fear the Walking Dead is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero. The new season will consist of 16 episodes with the final half of the season premiering later in 2018.
