The fight against the dead — and the living — continues with Fear the Walking Dead’s latest Season 5 set to premiere in Australia on Monday, June 3. Catch the new episodes of this gripping apocalypse drama express from the US available on Foxtel.
The new season of Fear the Walking Dead follows the group of survivors now led by Morgan Jones (after the character’s departure from The Walking Dead) and Alicia Clark. In the Season 4 finale, we saw the group deciding not to go ahead with their Alexandria plan. Instead, they set up a network to help lost people and save them in the process as a way of redeeming themselves from grave mistakes committed in the past. The fifth season will also feature another crossover with the introduction of Dwight from The Walking Dead.

Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 TV Preview
Honouring Madison’s plan for the doomed stadium, who sacrificed herself in Season 4’s mid-season finale, and continuing Polar Bear’s work in saving people, the group has now decided to create a network in an attempt to save their humanity and those of others. And since nothing works quite as well as one would expect, especially not in a world dominated by the dead and the living’s worst impulses, viewers can only imagine the terrifying obstacles and tragedies that lie ahead for these survivors. Find out how this plays out on Foxtel as it premieres on June 3, Monday at 12:00pm AEDT on FOX SHOWCASE.
