The fifth season of AMC's "Fear the Walking Dead" will premiere on June 2nd, and back in January, we had told you that Austin Amelio‘s Dwight would be crossing over from "The Walking Dead" to the spinoff series, much like Morgan Jones before him.
Entertainment Weekly previews Dwight's arrival on the show this week with a new photo (below).
"[Season 4] is going to take [the group] to an entirely new and strange and dangerous environment that they’ve never been to before," co-showrunner Ian Goldberg told EW.
Goldberg added, "This season is going to be about our characters grappling with the things they’ve done in their past and looking for redemption through the things they’re doing now, and for anyone who knows Dwight’s story on The Walking Dead, he is someone who did a lot of bad things over his time as a Savior."
Season 5 stars Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Karen David, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace and Jenna Elfman, along with returning cast member Ruben Blades.
The series 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.
