After some major deaths during season 4 the Fear The Walking Dead cast looks a little different – here’s a guide to the main characters of season 5. The West Coast-based Walking Dead spinoff first aired in 2015 and was recently renewed for a sixth season. It offered Walking Dead fans a different perspective on the zombie apocalypse by showing the beginning of the outbreak as seen through the eyes of the Clark family – Madison (Kim Dickins) and her kids Nick (Frank Dillane) and Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey).
By season 4, the action had moved to Texas and jumped forward two years but those weren’t the only shake-ups. Season 4 also saw the deaths of major characters including Madison – who was basically the Rick Grimes of Fear the Walking Dead – and her son Nick. On the upside, it introduced a slew of new characters including Garret Dillahunt’s John Dorie and Walking Dead crossover character Morgan Jones (Lennie James).
In season 5, the group is still in Texas searching for other survivors but face a brand new threat in the form of nuclear meltdowns and radioactive zombies. Thanks to some big season 4 departures the Fear The Walking Dead cast has evolved so read on for a recap of who's who in season 5.
Lennie James – Morgan Jones
By season 5, Morgan has become the de facto leader of the group and is dedicating himself to finding and helping survivors but must still confront his painful past if he is to move forward.
Alycia Debnam-Carey – Alicia Clark
After the deaths of her mother and brother, Alicia is the sole surviving Clark family member left on Fear The Walking Dead but is forging a new path as Morgan’s second-in-command.
Maggie Grace – Althea ‘Al’ Szewczek-Przygocki
Introduced during season 4, Al is a former journalist who is on a quest to document the stories of apocalypse survivors.
Colman Domingo – Victor Strand
Conman-turned-businessman Victor is one of the few remaining original Fear the Walking Dead characters. Initially self-serving, in season 5 Victor is trying to redeem himself.
