Fear The Walking Dead Reveals John Fighting Morgan And Trouble For Daniel In New Season 6 Trailer

AMC's Fear the Walking Dead has experienced a bit of a second wind with Season 6, which has arguably been the horror drama's most acclaimed season to date. The sectioned-off storytelling really meshed well this time around with the overall narrative, and the cast has been as solid as ever. With the first half of the season having wrapped with Episode 7 and the return of Karen David's Grace, Fear the Walking Dead has released the first big trailer for the back nine episodes, and it's a doozy.

As you can see from the video above, all kinds of excitement is on the way for all the major Fear the Walking Dead characters, with our eyes being particularly drawn to the super-dramatic confrontation between Garret Dillahunt's John and Lennie James' Morgan. The two characters are quite possibly Fear's biggest peacekeepers, and yet John appears ready to rip Morgan's face from his body in the Season 6 trailer.

After Morgan defends himself from John's shoves, John screams that something major that Morgan did was most definitely not his choice to make. It's obviously not clear what that choice was, but it definitely has something to do with John's decision to move forward with his plans to leave and escape from Virginia's clutches. Morgan likely got June involved, and that's not something John is willing to take lightly. But then we see John and Morgan side by side later in the trailer, so either they made up quickly, or the inciting incident got brought up after they reconnected.

And then we have Rubén Blades' Daniel Salazar, who was previously shown to be faking memory loss as a hairdresser in Virginia's camp. Viewers knew he was only faking after he came clean to Morgan, but it looks like someone else will discover his long-con ruse when Fear the Walking Dead returns. It appears to be Colby Minifie's Virginia holding the gun to his head, which doesn't seem like it'll end well for Daniel. Not that I think the show will kill him off completely, especially with this kind of a hard tease, but he'll at least be suffering for a bit.

Let's quickly run through all the other big and interesting moments that popped in Fear the Walking Dead's Season 6 trailer. Somebody's getting buried. Morgan finds a vehicle. John hits a literal dead end. Lucy and Grace are in some kind of a lineup, though we can only assume that'll end slightly less morosely than Negan's introduction on The Walking Dead proper. Maggie Grace's Al and Austin Amelio's Dwight are still partnered up together following Dwight's latest split with Christine Evangelista's Sherry. Of course, it's obviously worth noting that her masked group shows up in the new trailer, so it's possible they'll reconnect once again for something more permanent. Or not.

The biggest moment in the rest of the trailer – at least beyond Dakota potentially being on the chopping block driving through that crowd of zombies – is the first look at new co-star John Glover's character, whom Alycia Debnam-Carter's Alicia calls the "king of the crazies." But who are these crazies that he's reigning over? I mean, besides any number of survivors in this universe. We might as well start the theory train that this dude has some kind of information about Madison's survival.

Fear the Walking Dead will return to AMC for more Season 6 episodes at some point in 2021, though the exact date has yet to be announced.
