Season 7 concluded with Morgan (Lennie James) meeting returning fan-favorite character Madison (Kim Dickens). He discovers she is working for the mysterious PADRE as an abductor of children for the organization. She takes Morgan’s child Mo and, upon second thoughts, sets off with Morgan to rescue the child.
The synopsis for season 8 tells that Morgan, Madison, and the others come to live at PADRE under the cynical rule. After being demoralized and dejected, their hope for a better world lies with Morgan’s daughter Mo.
This season will see a seven-year jump that will bring Fear TWD’s timeline almost in line with the flagship series.
