Director and producer Michael E. Satrazemis has shared some much needed insight about the AMC spin-off following overwhelming disappointment that Madison Clark (played by Kim Dickens) failed to make a comeback in the latest episode. With just two episodes left of the current season of Fear the Walking Dead, a last minute cameo is looking less and less likely.

Madison Clark still hasn’t reunited with her daughter, Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) in the sixth season of Fear the Walking Dead.

AMC’s epic zombie spin-off is currently taking a week’s hiatus, but will be back this coming Sunday to bring the series one step closer to its highly anticipated season finale.

While the current instalment has widely been regarded as the show’s best outing yet, a significant portion of fans are still upset that Madison has failed to make an appearance.

This vocal subsection of TWD viewers were particularly riled after a promotional trailer for the most recent episode, ironically titled ‘Mother’, seemed to tease a surprise cameo.

A key director and producer for the series, Michael E. Satrazemis, touched on the #BringBackMadison social media campaign in the new episode of the Talk Dead to Me podcast.

Responding to the current pervading theories, Satrazemis said: “You can’t [ignore fan reactions].”

He then admitted that many of his recent updates on social media have been flooded by fans calling for Madison’s return.

The director continued: “There’s a huge group and she’s a very important and strong character and I get it. I understand, but all of it’s kind of flattering to me.”

Satrazemis posts a new update on Instagram after each week’s new episode of Fear the Walking Dead.

While most fans are grateful for the behind-the-scenes content, others have used it as an opportunity to question why Madison has yet to make another appearance.

Her death seemed to have been confirmed by Cole (Sebastian Sozzi) in a later episode during the fourth season.

Although Cole claimed to have witnessed her heroic sacrifice, some viewers are still convinced that, since she died off-screen, there’s still a small chance Madison is alive somewhere.

The director went on and seemed to suggest Madison would only come back to the series if it made sense within the overall narrative.

Satrazemis explained: “I think if we can elicit strong emotions from people, that’s what we’re trying to do as creators.

“That’s the majority of what I’m doing is trying to create emotions and keep people attached to humanity and make people feel things.”

Sadly, unless Satrazemis is keeping a major reveal close to the chest, the creators of the show seem to be reluctant to bring Madison back at this stage in the series.

Finally, he added: “I don’t necessarily care what emotion I create.

“I would love to make everyone happy all the time, but that’s not how stories work, especially in the apocalypse.”

Some TWD fans will just have to remain unhappy for the time being, though there are still two episodes of season six left for the spin-off to pull a last minute fake-out.

Fear the Walking Dead season 6 continues Sunday, June 6 on AMC.
