'Fear The Walking Dead' Season 6 may release in August
In an interview with FANFEST, series star Danay Garcia shed light on the upcoming season and her character Luciana
'Fear the Walking Dead' fans have been wondering when the sixth installment hits AMC and in what comes as a pleasing bit of news, according to star Danay Garcia, the new season may launch sometime in August. Previous seasons of the post-apocalypse horror drama have seen launch dates in mid-April and early June and runs all through late September.
AMC announced on March 24 that due to the coronavirus pandemic and the many state-wide 'stay at home' orders, producers were unable to finish post-production on 'The Walking Dead' season 10 finale and the episode would air at a later date. The premiere of 'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' was also delayed, and filming on 'The Walking Dead' season 11 and 'Fear the Walking Dead' season 6 was halted as well.
According to FANFEST, Garcia said: "This coming Season 6 is so exciting. For the first time, you get to see the characters dealing with their own personal issues. The writers took the time to go deeper into who they really are. We've been on the show for five years, so you get to know them really well, but you hardly see them alone. When you are on your own, you discover a different part of you that you didn't know existed. That's what you'll see this season."
Garcia also sheds light on her character, Luciana. “Luciana is the best character to explore on a show. I feel so lucky to play her. When you do a movie, you get to live a character’s journey for a short but intense period of time. But when you are part of a show and it’s going on its sixth season, you want a character like Luciana to play." She also added: "She is intelligent, strong and vulnerable. I honestly love how long we’ve gone and how much we still have to explore. She is endless."
Talking about the show in particular, “We’ve moved countries, cities, and states. The 'Fear the Walking Dead' universe is a show that can be adapted anywhere because it’s a universe that deals with human survival and the fight for a better existence, " Garcia opined. "I love when we push the boundaries of humanity. I love it when we discover new characters that show us a different way to survive."
The season 5 finale saw the main character Morgan (Lennie James) shot, and while his fate hangs in the balance, the new season sees the survivors split across different settlements. For those who missed watching the previous season, 'Fear the Walking Dead' season 5 is coming to DVD and Blu-ray on May 19, 2020.
