What Happened to Maggie Grace on Fear of the Walking Dead

Maggie Grace’s role on Fear of the Walking Dead came to an end, and she won’t appear on the show anymore. 

According to the show’s co-runner Andrew Chambliss, Maggie’s character came to an end of her story arc. 

Therefore, she would no longer appear on Season 7 of the show.

Mr Chambliss said, “This episode marks Al’s last appearance this season. In Al’s history on the show, we have seen her filming other people, asking other people questions. In this episode, we actually see her on the side of the camera.”

Althea finally stopped chasing Isabelle, her love interest in the film. 

Before they reunite, Althea destroys her camera and tells her love interest, “We will find something new. Something for us both.” 

She admits to Isabelle that if they should be together, they must stay ahead of CRM. Althea then asks Isabelle, “Where should we go first?”
