The official trailer for Fear The Walking Dead Season 5 has arrived, and it's packed with all the action fans crave. It also has another look at The Walking Dead's Dwight, as well as the surprise return of a character we weren't expecting. Take a look at the trailer below, and keep an eye out for that surprise appearance by actor Rubén Blades.

Daniel Salazar is back, and he's got a gun pointed squarely in the direction of the man who shot him a couple seasons back. Strand probably won't be at ease seeing a familiar face in this instance, and chances are Daniel isn't going to let that whole shooting his cheek off incident slide. Where has Daniel been, and why is he back now?

Better question, is the seemingly immortal Daniel going to get revenge on Strand for that shot to the head? Chances are he'll hold a grudge, although one would imagine the two are square considering Daniel tried to leave Strand for dead amongst zombies once. Plus, that cheek healed pretty damn well for how gruesome it looked when he first got shot, so maybe they can put the past behind them?

Daniel's return was a nice surprise, but we can't forget how cool it was to see Dwight as well. After all, the first image we saw of him on Fear The Walking Dead made him out to be one dangerous looking dude. That may still be the case, but are we just going to sit here and pretend that greeting to Morgan wasn't anything other than a guy shocked to see someone from back in the day?

The only real disappointment fans may have with this reunion is that it's more or less a "blink and you'll miss it" part of the trailer. Surely some are going to be miffed by that, although the mystery behind Dwight's re-emergence and what's coming up for his character may be why Fear The Walking Dead limited his exposure in the Season 5 trailer. For those not wishing to rewind, here's that puzzled mug of his right after he recognized Morgan.

One interesting thing about this trailer is that for all its doom and gloom, there's also a very uplifting vibe to it all. The group clearly has landed in a less than ideal situation, but they're still about that mission of helping others and trying to make the world a better place for as many people as they can. Hopefully that plan works out for them, and if not, that cat at least survives whatever shit storm is headed their way.

Fear The Walking Dead's premiere is going to be a horror-filled night on AMC, as the premiere will be chased by the Joe Hill adaptation of NOS4A2 right after. A trailer for the Zachary Quinto featured drama also dropped at WonderCon, and it looks all kinds of spooky.

Be ready to scream this summer, as Fear The Walking Dead returns Sunday, June 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET with NOS4A2 set to premiere right after. CinemaBlend will keep an eye out for both shows in the meantime, as well as report on what's happening with some of the other upcoming shows arriving this spring.
