A seven-year time leap will age up Morgan’s daughter, Mo, who is played by Zoey Merchant, with the archipelago survivor residing under PADRE’s cynical authority in Season 8, which Chambliss and Goldberg have dubbed a reinvention after placing Season 7 against the background of the nuclear-zombie apocalypse.

Every season, they discuss reinventing the show, according to Goldberg. They will introduce PADRE, kind of seeing that for what it is, and removing the location, making this one of the greatest reincarnations they have ever done. But they anticipate that the conditions in which they discover the personalities will surprise everyone. For them, it’s a significant change.
