Fear the Walking Dead goes fourth

Andrew Lincoln is So Excited For 'Walking Dead' Season 8

As the premiere date for Season 3 of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead approaches, news is starting to flood in about what fans can expect.

Each of the characters have been integral to the story told throughout the past season, so it's no surprise to see each of them upgraded.

Ogg plays Negan's right-hand man, Simon, who has proven to be a charismatic and crafty substitute for his more overbearing boss when it comes to keeping the Hilltop Community under control.

The decision came after the AMC series wrapped up its seventh season where viewers witnessed the deaths of Glenn (Steven Yeun), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green).

After Season 7 cleared out some slots on the roster, The Walking Dead is looking to beef up its full-time cast for next year.

Enid - the teenage love interest of Carl (Chandler Riggs) - has appeared on the show since season five. Her character, and the group she leads, are not from the comics.

With Rick finally bringing some spirit back to the group and having a sensational standoff with Negan in the final episode of season 7, the players are now in position for the war to kick off properly.

What do you think of AMC's decision to up Steven Ogg, Katelyn Nacon and Pollyanna McIntosh to series regulars in Season 8? Per the network, the image represents "the idea that the person you become in the new world is more brutal, savage and heartless; and capable of things that were unimaginable before the dead began to walk".

Whether everybody now involved in the series is safe for the foreseeable future remains to be seen, but we wouldn't hedge our bets on everybody making it through season 8 unscathed. Clearly a little bit of Negan has rubbed off on Simon who seems to just enjoy being a bad guy, rather than being one of these tortured souls that The Walking Dead is so full of.
