Kim Dickens talks about Madison Clark’s place in the sequel to the horror series.
The last episode of season 7 has aired and it looks like fear the walking dead will embark on a brand new chapter now, far from the Strand Tower and in a brand new setting… Spoiler alert!
When will season 8 air? fear the walking dead ?
Not immediately ! While the last part of the season 11 finale of The Walking Dead has been postponed until the fall, we understand that fear the walking dead will not return in October, as has been the case in recent years. We must rather bet on a winter broadcast. And maybe not even before early 2023.
Where is the filming?
“We are currently in the planning stages for Season 8”confided the co-showrunner Andrew Chambliss to Decide, end of April. Which means that production has barely started. “Yes, we are starting to film this summer” resumes Kim Dickens in EW. It must be said that she has changed scenery, since after filming in Texas since 2018, fear the walking dead will film its eighth season in Savannah, Georgia. For financial reasons, more than narrative ones, but still: “Of course, given our move, the story is built with that in mind when it comes to the places we write. The end of season 7 was written with this move in mind…“says Chambliss.
What history and what place will Madison Clark have?
As expected, Kim Dickens made her return in the season 7 finale (to be seen in France on My Canal). And she learned of the disappearance of her children, Nick and Alicia: “She’s devastated, and she definitely gave up hope at that point. But she’s also able to realize with the help of Morgan, that PADRE has nothing to control her now. If that’s the The last thing she does is help Morgan get Mo back. So there’s a kind of freedom that comes with that. There’s a deep sadness, a devastating sadness. Madison feels like she’s gone, but she’s inspired when Morgan tells her that it’s the way she raised her kids that inspired him. It kind of comes full circle and brings her back to life…” comments the actress in EW.
Kim Dickens reveals in the wake of having become aware of “an overall planof what awaits his character. “I’m excited to do it and to know what other difficult situations they are going to put Madison in (…) It’s going to be exciting. I think it’s going to be a great season.”
