Actress Maggie Grace, who plays Althea on Fear the Walking Dead, will not be appearing in the series for the remainder of season 7. The series co-showrunner, Andrew Chambliss, confirmed Grace’s absence during AMC+’s Fear the Walking Dead: Episode Insider.
“This episode marks Al’s last appearance this season,” Chambliss said.
Maggie Grace and Andrew Chambliss did not state the reason for the hiatus. However, many are speculating it has to do with Grace becoming a new parent.

Grace’s IMDB page also shows her next project is Incident on 459, which is already in pre-production. So she may be taking a break to pursue other projects.
In the latest Fear the Walking Dead Reactors Panel, our own Governor (Captain Kyle), Jaz Bielby, and reactor Tomaj discussed the final episode and speculated on how she might return in future seasons. Check it out below.
Whatever the reason for the break, we wish her the best.
