Following the new episode of Fear the Walking Dead, ComicBook.com will publish a deep dive recap in the form of an exclusive interview with John actor Garret Dillahunt. "We have had episodes like [Episode 6x04] before that I thought worked out pretty well," Dillahunt said, referencing the anthology format and his previous episode where he appeared with only Jenna Elfman's June. "It's a big ensemble, so anytime you can allow any of this number, who I think are pretty extraordinarily talented, in front of and behind the camera. If you allow them more time to tell a story, it's always helpful, I think. It becomes a much more detailed and immersive experience for the audience as well."
The Walking Dead: World Beyond airs Sundays at 10pm ET, following new episodes of Fear the Walking Dead at 9pm ET on AMC. The Walking Dead will return for 6 more episodes of Season 10 in the Spring. The 11th and final season of The Walking Dead will begin airing in the Fall of 2021.
