» Fear The Walking Dead » fans had to wait four long years for this moment, but now it’s finally here: In the trailer for the second part of season 7, Madison ( Kim Dickens ) finally returns. She was the main character for the first four seasons of the zombie spin-off and has been presumed deceased since seemingly blowing herself up in the mid-season finale of Season 4 to help her squad escape the undead. But it looks like Madison actually survived the blast.

However, for those following the events surrounding Fear The Walking Dead, the return shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. Finally, Madison’s departure caused disappointment among many fans. And since we never saw her death explicitly, the possibility that she would somehow return after all had been in the air for a long time. With the announcement of Season 8 on the Talking Dead talk show, the trailer surprise was even anticipated in December and Madison’s return in Season 7B was explicitly confirmed .
Not all Madison fans are happy about the return
In fact, according to the first reactions on YouTube and Twitter, Madison’s comeback is not only met with positive feedback. There are certainly some fans who are very happy about it and are «hyped», but «Fear The Walking Dead» has a problem: the series has gone through major fluctuations in quality over the course of its time.
Even longtime fans mistrust the authors to make the right decisions. Hardly any fans are as cynical about their own series as that of «Fear The Walking Dead», which is why with every new announcement there are usually corresponding comments that assume the worst. Here is a small selection:
«Oh yeah… Madison’s back. Can’t wait to see the writers ruin them too.”
«With Madison back, things can only go downhill now. They just brought her back for the ratings.”
Fans also voiced their concerns in the YouTube comments, writing something like, » I really hope they don’t ruin Madison because she was a badass when Dave Erickson was showrunner, but in season 4 the new showrunners just brushed her aside.» . […] Hopefully the writers will go back to the version of Madison that fans like, not Season 4.”
Another wrote, «I’m so happy that the true main character Madison is returning, but I don’t trust the writers and showrunners.»
So let’s hope that the worries are unfounded and Madison’s return convinces the fans. Fear The Walking Dead Season 7B starts in Germany on April 18, 2022 on Amazon Prime Video . Season 11B of the parent series “ The Walking Dead ” is currently running on ProSieben Fun and Disney+ .
