    Robert Kirkman Says Lennie James’ Presence on ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Will “Change Everything” – Fan Fest | For Fans, By Fans
    It’s also being said that, with the new filming location of Austin, Texas will come what would be the biggest change of all. A time jump. This has gained intense speculation since it was announced that Lennie James would be bringing Morgan to the cast.

    For now, a lot is still unknown but the one thing we are sure of is that when Fear The Walking Dead returns, we’re all in for some big surprises.

    I expected a time jump, as it's the only way to include Morgan, unless they were trying to account for the years he wasn't in TWD.

    I gave a plant tour to a dealer and some customers from Egypt about a week ago. In talking about the area, I mentioned that The Walking Dead was filmed here locally. They perked up and said they watched the show, and asked for information about filmed, so I directed them to the Walking Dead tour site.

    I actually have a membership at the golf club where they did the Daryl & Beth golf club scenes at. :D
    Too bad I don't like golf, but it's sister club is right across the street from my house and the kids love the club pool. So a family membership I have, which is good at both clubs.

    Are you aware why that was being done, its part of Purim?
    Purim would not be celebrated in Egypt in the open

    Purim in Israel. March 1-2, 2018 | Tourist Israel

    I'm familiar with Purim (has to do with Haman and his plan to kill the Jews, aka Book of Ester).

    We had a family membership at the Jewish Community Center in York, PA (again, because they had a pool and gave free swimming lessons to member kids).
    They would do a Purim festival every year, and my kids would dress up and participate.

    We also took part in a bunch of other activities there as well.

    Nope not at all, it's just another fun day, enjoy it, it's a time to let off some steam.

    Both Holloween and Purim are holy days but have become fun days

    But Jews also get into Holloween too

    World Wide Words: The whole megillah

    Haman wanted to kill the Jews, so why would I think i'm him

    And as my kids have shown, Christian get into Purim as well.

    fyi, Halloween wasn't a Christian thing. It was a Celtic thing.

    The show is doomed unless they do it, its bad for bad actors, and bad writers, my guess they're going to change both to some degree.

    It started out OK, then they killed off the best one, having him shot and fall out, of the Helicopter, after that it really went downhill, his wife sucks as the leader, her son looks like an insane drug head.
    Morgan who is played by a great British actor is there only hope, and it's no sure bet, that my two cents worth

    Another good show, the colony may either get even better or end up doomed.

    The lead (Cliff Curtis) got killed off because he was offered a 5 movie Avatar deal that runs through 2025. All of the folks said he would have been crazy not to take the deal.

    It's AMC. They don't need huge ratings, as it still gets better numbers than everything else on the network except it's mother show.

    The change in location is also a cost savings measure to keep it more profitable.

    I agree, anyone would jump at that.

    btw, 5 Avatar movies? If I was them, I'd wait and see how the first sequal does before planning something like that. There's really only so much you can do with that franchise.

    They must be confident. IMDB shows 2 filming and 2 in pre-production now. (2 to 5, so it is a 4 movie deal)

    Hopefully it doesn't fall apart and slap them in the face. Because if the 1st one doesn't do well, their stuck with a turkey already made.

    This is actually a really good show but people wanted more of the other show, and this was never going to be that. The problem isn't the show or the writers, the only problem is viewer expectations.

    They should kill off Rick, Maggie, Negan, & then move over whoever's left to Fear the Walking Dead where Madison can be their leader.
