AMC has officially released the trailer for Fear The Walking Dead Season 5. Check out our breakdown of the clip below.

Yesterday was a big day for Walking Dead fans—well at least for those who enjoy its companion series, Fear The Walking Dead. The reason is that AMC released the official trailer for season five alongside a set release date of June 2nd.

The Season 5 release date doesn’t come as a surprise seeing as how Scott Gimple teased a June premiere on last week’s episode of Talking Dead—but the trailer did catch us off-guard—what with it showcasing quite a few scenes from the upcoming season. One scene, for instance, depicts Victor (Colman Domingo) reuniting with Daniel (Ruben Blades).

In this particular scene, Daniel has Victor at gunpoint. With a gun pointed at him, Victor tries convincing Daniel not to shoot. He doesn’t know who he’s speaking to until a familiar voice reminds Victor that he talks way too much. The scene cuts to black before we see how their meeting goes but since Daniel didn’t immediately pull the trigger, it’s a good indication of him sparing Victor’s life.

Additionally, the trailer offers much more than just a small glimpse at Daniel and Victor being reunited. It also features a new community of survivors who will need to learn to trust again, just like Morgan (Lennie James) did on TWD. Of course, that’s easier said than done.

For a more in-depth breakdown of the Fear The Walking Dead Season 5 trailer, check out our analysis below.

The first takeaway of interest has to be the chain of walkers linked together. The glimpse reminded us of the Saviors’ roadblocks in Season 6 of The Walking Dead—and had it not for the group being dismantled—we could easily see them setting up in Fear’s neck of the woods. Luckily, that’s not the case.

While there’s no way to tell exactly who set up the chainlink walkers, it was probably the kids who Morgan come across on the road. A young unnamed girl is the first to pop up from behind a car while dialogue warns Morgan’s group of the land they’ve stumbled onto.

In our opinion, Dwight (Austin Amelio) may have had a hand in setting up those roadblocks. He has knowledge of Negan’s techniques so perhaps Dwight advised another group on how to scare other survivors away. Then again, the scale of this walker-chain is on a whole nother level.

Another brief shot later in the trailer shows a huge line of zombies chained together. There are dozens if not hundreds standing in front of a clearing. Their purpose is unclear but it’s presumably a barrier to keep people out of a certain area.

Multiple roads have been blocked by cars and walkers, what’s to say a devilish group hasn’t figured out how to cordon off an entire partition of land? Survivors have utilized zombies to protect their strongholds before so it makes sense that someone would create a walker-blockade at some point.

The bad news is Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) and the others aren’t protected by this line of walkers. John Dorie (Garret Dillahunt) can be seen staving off a zombie attack in an old-west style ghost town—that is until someone walks up from behind with a gun to his head.

The trailer once again cuts to black but most of us assume John will make it out of this predicament alive. He and June (Jenna Elfman) are a fan-favorite couple and no one expects to see them part ways. Although, we should be prepared for the worst in case AMC plans on writing June or John out of the show.

Those were all the moments that caught our eye but if we missed anything, let us know in the comments section below.

Fear The Walking Dead Season 5 premiers on June 5, 2019. All episodes are currently streaming on Hulu. For more on FTWD, follow us on the Hulu Watcher Twitter Account @HuluWatcherFS or on the Hulu Watcher Facebook Page.
