Fear The Walking Dead will be returning to our screens this summer and to give us a tease of what’s to come, AMC has released a set of images from the show to give us our first look. They show us our characters looking a little bit worse for wear as the previous season’s events begin to take their toll.
As “Fear the Walking Dead” returns for Season 3, 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.
There’s no doubting that Fear the Walking Dead is a lesser show than The Walking Dead, but we think it offers a necessary and refreshing deviation from the events of Rick and co., It’s great to see a different side to the zombie apocalypse that we have all been accustomed to and FTWD is filled with plenty of moral, social and undead drama.
Fear the Walking Dead returns this summer.
