Fear the Walking Dead has released its first proper look at Dwight this coming season.

The former Savior (Austin Amelio) is moving over from The Walking Dead to the spin-off series for Fear's fifth season, where he will cross paths with Morgan Jones (Lennie James), another former resident of the main show.

In the picture below, Dwight looks like he means business as he wields a hatchet and his coat is splattered with possibly somebody else's blood.

Amelio was announced for Fear at the start of the year. Dwight was last seen being exiled by Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) after helping Rick's militia win the all-out war against Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

"For some reason, Dwight keeps getting blessed with the best of both worlds," Amelio said, reacting to the news of the crossover recently.

"I got to work with actors from Alexandria and the Saviors. Now I get to work with actors from Fear the Walking Dead. After a year and two months of being a really good secret keeper, that's really exciting. I get to work with everybody in this world.

"I feel really blessed."

Fear the Walking Dead returns for its fifth season later this year on AMC in the US and on AMC on BT TV in the UK.
