5 Things We Learned From the ‘FTWD’ Midseason Premiere Promo (VIDEO)
Fear the Walking Dead’s Season 2 won’t resume until August 21, but AMC was kind enough to give us a midseason premiere promo to parse over while we wait.
The promo, which is only 30 seconds long, focuses on Nick and his now solo journey in the post-apocalyptic world.
In the May 22 midseason finale, the onetime addict opted to separate from his family and stay behind at Celia’s compound, meaning he’s now fending for himself.

Despite Nick’s declaration that he “walks among” the undead, this clip proves the teen might just be in over his head now that he’s sans any and all forms of protection.
Watch the promo below and scroll down for a list of five things we learned.
We’ll Be Meeting Some New Characters
Though this doesn’t exactly come as a shock, the promo confirms the second half of FTWD will be introducing us to some newbies.
We counted at least three newcomers, including one big guy riding in a jeep, gun in hand, and one trigger-happy survivor.

The Walker Population Is Rapidly Growing
Since the gang has been isolated for the most part (first on Strand’s yacht and then at Celia’s compound), we haven’t been keeping a close eye of the walker population, but the promo shows the number of undead is growing at a rapid pace; just look at that horde walking down the road.
Be careful, Nick!
But They’re Not Called Walkers
We’re using the word walkers because that’s what The Walking Dead has conditioned us to call them, but in the promo, a member of Celia’s crew tells Nick, “The north road is full of la manas.”
As if that wasn’t horrifying enough, she adds “They are the worst of men” just as we watch a gaggle of them tear into someone’s chest cavity. Ew.

Someone Gets Shot
One of the aforementioned newbies fires his gun towards the end of the promo. Given the swiftness of the shot we’re inclined to believe he’s aiming his weapon at a walker — excuse us, mana — but you never know!
Nick Might Use Again
The apocalypse pretty much forced Frank Dillane’s character to quit using drugs cold turkey, but in the promo we see him put an unknown substance onto a spoon. Don’t do it, Nick — you’ve come so far!
Unfortunately, the fact that the promo ends with a bloody Nick collapsing in the middle of the road while screaming “No” doesn’t bode well for his future.
Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 premieres August 21 on AMC.
