Comic-Con 2020: Will 'Fear the Walking Dead' Season 6 survive if Morgan truly is gone?
Morgan Jones (Lennie James) has been one of the most important characters on AMC's 'Fear the Walking Dead' since his introduction. But now it's pretty doubtful whether he will survive come Season 6.
In the Season 5 finale, Morgan was shot and left for dead but we never did see a body. Chances are, he survived the incident somehow or the other but if that isn't the case, the question is whether the series can survive without him.
The main show, 'The Walking Dead', faced a similar problem with the apparent demise of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). However, the main show has managed to come out of that situation still running strong and that's completely because of the brilliant cast of characters at their disposal.
It shouldn't be that hard for 'Fear the Walking Dead' to pull off something similar. Ultimately, it all comes down to the skill of the writers and directors to create a well-crafted season without depending too much on one person to lead the story.
Of course, there is a very strong chance that Morgan might have survived, in which case this whole argument is moot. The trailer for the next season shows Morgan with blood-red eyes, which seems pretty weird.
Now, we're not saying that he's a vampire but at the end of the day, this is a show about zombies. It wouldn't be the most far-fetched thing is Morgan is brought back to life by being transformed into some kind of supernatural creature, though if he's just going to become a walker and get killed, then that's rather disappointing.
Co-showrunner Ian Goldberg has talked about Morgan's fate saying, "We've seen Morgan survive some pretty scary things in the past, but this might be the biggest test he's faced yet... that's a question for season 6." Unfortunately, we won't be getting any new details about 'Fear the Walking Dead' Season 6 until the show's panel during Comic-Con@Home. So we'll just have to keep our eyes open and hope for the best.
'Fear the Walking Dead' Season 6 is scheduled to premiere August 11 on AMC.
