AMC's Fear the Walking Dead will return for its third season on Sunday, June 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT as announced during last night's Talking Dead. The first half of the season will consist of eight episodes airing over six weeks, with two back-to- back episodes on Sunday, June 4 and a mid-season finale of two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, July 9. The network also released today new photography from Fear the Walking Dead Season Three, currently in production in Baja, Mexico.
As Fear the Walking Dead returns for season three, our families will be brought together in the vibrant and violent region formerly known as 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 has reconnected with Travis, her apocalyptic partner, but Alicia has been fractured by her murder of Andres. Madison's son is only a few miles from his mother, but Nick's first action as a leader saw him and Luciana ambushed by an American militia group, the couple escaped death, Luciana was shot, and Nick no longer feels immortal.
Fear the Walking Dead will also welcome Emma Caulfield this season, with the actress portraying a mystery character that is believed to be a villain that has a big impact on both Nick and Luciana. It's possible that Emma Caulfield's character is who Nick and Luciana are both seen hiding from in a previously-released photo, but that hasn't been confirmed. Recovering both emotionally and physically, Strand has his sights set on harnessing the new world's currency, and Ofelia's captivity will test her ability to survive and see if she can muster the savagery of her father.
Viewers can catch up on all past episodes of Fear the Walking Dead only on Hulu. The complete first and second seasons of the series are now streaming. Heading into its third season on AMC, Fear has solidified itself as the #2 drama in ad-supported cable among adults 25-54. The series is executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert and stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia, Colman Domingo as Strand and Danay Garcia as Luciana. Joining the cast as series regulars for season three are Dayton Callie (Sons of Anarchy, Deadwood), Daniel Sharman (The Originals, Teen Wolf) and Sam Underwood (The Following), who will play the Otto family, founders of a survivalist organization who prepared for the fall of democracy, but didn't anticipate the rise of the dead, as well as Lisandra Tena (Chicago P.D.) as Lola Guerrero.
