Fear the Walking Dead's new season is on its way and we've just found out a huge piece of information regarding the eighth and final instalment – the story features a seven-year time-jump.

The final season will follow Lennie James' Morgan and Kim Dickens' Madison setting out to rescue an eight-year-old Mo from the tyrannical rule of PADRE. In the process, they will try to reignite fellow survivors' belief in a better world.

That means that the age of Mo, who was previously a baby in season seven, confirms that there is a seven-year time jump. Previously, The Walking Dead featured a six-year time jump early on in season nine.

The newly released trailer of Fear the Walking Dead teases Morgan telling allies not to do what he did and run but instead remain and fight for the greater good as he and his fellow survivors fight against PADRE.

The end of the trailer features Morgan returning to the home we first met him in the first season of The Walking Dead.

Previously, stars Christine Evangelista and Austin Amelio posted tributes to the show ahead of the final season.
