‘Fear the Walking Dead’ returns for a third season, after a strong second season saved the shows from dubious fans and critics who weren’t sure if the show could live in the shadow of its “big brother,” ‘The Walking Dead,’ effectively.  Tackling the unseen elements of the first days of the zombie outbreak (remember, in ‘The Walking Dead,’ Rick is in a coma during the initial crisis, so viewers only get to see snippets of this time via flashbacks), the show seems to have found an identity and direction that pleases its audience.

A fourth season has already been guaranteed by AMC, so this season won’t be the end of the story – although, in a tale about the walking dead, it’s likely to be the end of the road for at least some of our main characters.  A new trailer has been released in anticipation of the show’s return to the airwaves in a few short weeks – take a peek at the undead mayhem below!

As Fear the Walking Dead returns for season three, our families will be brought together in the vibrant and violent ecotone of the U.S.-Mexico border.  International lines done away with following the world’s end, our characters must attempt to rebuild not only society, but family as well. Madison (Kim Dickens) has reconnected with Travis (Cliff Curtis), her apocalyptic partner, but Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) has been fractured by her murder of Andres. Madison’s son mere miles from his mother, Nick’s (Frank Dillane) first action as a leader saw Luciana (Danay Garcia) ambushed by an American militia group — the couple escaped death, but Nick no longer feels immortal. Recovering both emotionally and physically, Strand (Colman Domingo) has his sights set on harnessing the new world’s currency, and Ofelia’s (Mercedes Mason) captivity will test her ability to survive and see if she can muster the savagery of her father.

‘The third season of ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ will premiere on AMC on June 4, 2017.
