Season seven of The Walking Dead finished last night, but what about Fear the Walking Dead? Today, AMC announced season three of the TV series will premiere in June.
The Walking Dead prequel explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. The cast includes Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Lorenzo James Henrie, Rubén Blades, Mercedes Mason, and Colman Domingo.
Season three of Fear the Walking Dead debuts on June 4th at 9 p.m. ET/PT with back-to-back new episodes.
NEW YORK, NY – April 3, 2017 – 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.
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. 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.
