It seems like a lie but we had not known if Morgan is alive or dead since September 2019, the date on which the final episode of the fifth installment of ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ aired. The wait was not supposed to last as long, but the arrival of the pandemic paralyzed everything. Little by little it seems that the sector is reactivating, and it is shown by the release dates that Comic-Con gave us last week.
Among the novelties came the release date corresponding to the entire Walking Dead universe, that is, the return of season 10 of the mother series – which will not only return with the final episode that was pending broadcast but in 2021 will give away six extra episodes – the debut of his new spin-off ‘ TWD: World Beyond ‘ and the sixth season of ‘FTWD’, which is the topic we are focusing on right now. With a premiere scheduled for October 11, the spin-off panel also gave us a new preview and the presence of Lennie James.
Bleak and a sneak peek where he is seen opening sinister red eyes. Had the character died? When showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg were asked if Morgan was okay, their answer was not very clarifying. Scott Gimple didn’t help much either, joking that the character “needed to take two pints at least.”
So the fans did not hesitate to ask via virtual what we all think after seeing his eyes: Was Morgan a walker? Chambliss noted that: “It was definitely Morgan with red eyes. And it’s not an allergy. Something is happening with Morgan.” Nor did Lennie himself want to resolve our doubts and decided that even more tension had to be added: “Being Morgan is not going to be easy. It is not going to be easy.”
Everything indicates that the character will return as a Walker. Although who knows, maybe he only had the blood vessels in his head exploded and he still has something else to tell. But it doesn’t look. In October we will know.
