Fear the Walking Dead midseason premiere airs tonight

Fear the Walking Dead is finally back tonight with a new episode. You can catch it on AMC at 9/8c. It’s the first of eight episodes that will air until September 29. The season 5 finale will definitely not be the last we see of FTWD – the show was picked up for a sixth season last month. Here is a preview of the new episodes:

And GeekTyrant has the first picture from Garret’s new zombie project. Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead is a zombie adventure film that deals with “a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.”

The film will be released by Netflix (no date in sight yet – they’re expected to film through October). If you’re a zombie seeking employment in New Mexico, you should check this article out.

Deadwood: The Movie airs tonight!

For those who missed it elsewhere, Deadwood: The Movie airs tonight at 8/7c on HBO. I wasn’t sure whether or not to post updates about this because I didn’t see any confirmation that Garret was in it, at least not before this fine interview with Timothy Olyphant from a couple of days ago. (Hey, he could have just been hanging out on the set, in costume, weirder things have happened!)

The film is set 10 years after the season three finale and almost everyone is back. Here is the trailer:

AMC has released the first trailer and synopsis for FTWD season five at WonderCon 2019 this weekend. The version without a geo-block is here, too (thanks to Rotten Tomatoes!)

The show is coming back on Sunday, June 2 at 9pm ET/8pm CT.

Synopsis and trailer:

The group’s mission is clear: locate survivors and help make what’s left of the world a slightly better place. With dogged determination, Morgan Jones (James) leads the group with a philosophy rooted in benevolence, community and hope. Each character believes that helping others will allow them to make up for the wrongs of their pasts. But trust won’t be easily earned. Their mission of helping others will be put to the ultimate test when our group finds themselves in unchartered territory, one which will force them to face not just their pasts but also their fears. It is only through facing those fears that the group will discover an entirely new way to live, one that will leave them forever changed.

Garret did a few interviews in the past month. You can check them out here:
