Fear the Walking Dead was renewed for an eighth season in December 2021, and it was revealed that Kim Dickens would reprise her role as Madison in the series. When Kim discussed the apparent revival of her character on the AMC chat show Talking Dead, viewers were shocked. She finally spoke up: “I've probably held the secret this whole year.”
The actress's return was very much welcomed by the show's producers. According to a statement released by Scott M. Gimple, the chief content officer of The Walking Dead Universe, “if there were a Mt. Deadmore, Kim Dickens‘ face would be on it.” “Madison Clark is a central figure in TWDU; she is courageous and multifaceted; she is a regular person who learns to fight and ultimately becomes a force for good. The combination of Kim Dickens' raw talent, strength, and brilliance will once again set TWDU on fire.
Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 Release Date: When Will It Air?
Seasons are now broken up into two sections, a change from previous years.
Every year since then, the first half has premiered in the fall, while the second half has returned in the spring. Season 8 is probably going to be produced similarly if the previous seven were any indication.
This indicates that we may expect to see part one of season eight in the fall of 2022, and part two in the spring of 2023.
Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 Cast:
The recent episode of “Talking Dead” gave fans some more exciting news: Kim Dickens, who plays Madison Clark, will be returning to “Fear the Walking Dead.” Starting in April 2022, she will make a recurring appearance in the second half of Season 7, and then in the following year, she will be promoted to series regular status.
Madison was a pivotal character in the first four seasons of “Fear the Walking Dead,” and fans will recall that she seemingly sacrificed herself in an explosion. AMC hasn't revealed her future role on the show, although she'll likely play a significant part in the Season 7B storyline (spoilers ahead).
Given that numerous characters would be killed off by the season's end, it's too soon to predict which Season 7 cast members would be returning for Season 8. Presently, Austin Amelio (Dwight), Mo Collins (Sarah), Alexa Nisenson (Charlie), Karen David (Grace), Christine Evangelista (Sherry), Colby Hollman (Wes), Jenna Elfman (June), Keith Carradine (John Dorie Sr.), and Ruben Blades (Morgan) are confirmed for Season 7B.

Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 Plot:
It's not often clear which Walking Dead series ends and which begins due to the franchise's various branches. However, Madison Clark's return to the show in the season 7 finale will undoubtedly be a major plot point in the next eighth season.
The fan-favorite character, who had been assumed dead for quite some time, returned in the season finale of Fear the Walking Dead and is very much alive. Answers to the questions of how she made it this far and why she's working with the show's bad guys are central to season 8.
Even though the nuclear explosion seemed to bring misery to everyone else, Victor Strand appeared to be doing very well. Who, though, will finally bring an end to his self-delusion and aspirations to play god?
Alicia appeared to be dying of a mystery illness in season 7 that she thought would turn her into a zombie, but she ultimately recovered and made up with Victor. After that, she started out on her own mission, but we might never see her again.
