Main show The Walking Dead may be turning into a walker itself as it prepares to end with season 11, but the franchise's first spin-off Fear the Walking Dead is still going strong.

Season seven brought about a new beginning for the show after cult leader brought about "The End" by detonating nuclear warheads across Texas.

The long-suffering survivors just can't catch a break, as now the outside air is more deadly than any walker - how will Morgan, Alicia and co deal with a second apocalypse?

We won't have to wait long to find out, however, with a confirmed return date now in our sights and a trailer for what comes next between Alicia and Victor.

Plus a surprise return is on the way.

Here's everything we know about Fear the Walking Dead season seven, part two.

Despite apparently meeting her end back in the show's fourth season, Madison Clark will be returning later in Fear the Walking Dead season 7, with Gone Girl star Kim Dickens reprising her role.

Dickens will once again take on a series regular role in the now-confirmed eighth season of Fear the Walking Dead.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the Walking Dead universe boss Scott Gimple said: "If there were a Mt. Deadmore, Kim Dickens' face would be on it.

"Madison Clark is a foundational character to TWDU – heroic, complex, an every person who becomes a warrior and then a force of benevolence.

"Kim Dickens' raw talent, strength, and brilliance will electrify TWDU once more and we couldn't be luckier to have her back."

We can't wait to have Madison back in the show!

In addition to Kim Dickens' big comeback, we can also expect a number of big characters to return.

Also back for part 2 are Lennie James as Morgan Jones, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia Clark, Colman Domingo as Victor Strand, and Keith Carradine as John Dorie Sr.

Other returnees include Jenna Elfman as June Dorie, Danay Garcia as Luciana Galvez, Christine Evangelista as Sherry, Rubén Blades as Daniel Salazar, Austin Amelio as Dwight, Karen David as Grace Mukherjee, and Mo Collins as Sarah Rabinowitz.

Fear the Walking Dead season 7 part 2 plot

The second half of the new season is on the way and we now have an official plot synopsis.

It reads: "In the second half of Season 7, months have passed after the nuclear blast and the only one thriving is Victor Strand. Having built a fiefdom, he callously selects who will have a chance at life.

"The other members of the group have suffered immensely, but out of that, has come a fierce determination to live — even if it means taking Strand's Tower by force and continuing the search for Padre, a mythical place no one is sure really exists.

"Alicia, now the reluctant leader to Teddy's former followers, is plagued by a mysterious illness and the repercussions of her past actions.

"Morgan, trying to maintain hope that he will be reunited with his family, knows Alicia is key to their survival. With Alicia declaring war, Strand's paranoia and personal vendettas grow, and with that, new threats emerge from all sides."

This definitely sounds like Alicia needs her mother now more than ever!

Eeeek!
