As AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” inches ever closer to its Season 3 premiere, so too do the show’s characters trudge towards more tragedy at the United States-Mexico border. A synopsis and three new on-set photos for the upcoming season tease what’s in store for the ensemble cast as they try to navigate an infected world that’s rapidly spiraling deeper into chaos.
The show’s Season 2 finale saw Travis, Madison and Alicia leaving the group of hotel survivors after a conflict resulted in death, while Strand opted to stay behind. Nick and Luciana were also captured by a roaming militia group after they saw a mysterious helicopter yet again.
Season 3 will see the trio of Travis, Madison and Alicia surviving at the border. Alicia will be worse for wear after her escape required her to murder an attacker intent on killing Travis. Nick must cope with the reality of death after he nearly gets Luciana killed in an ambush, and Strand will get down to business. Meanwhile, Ofelia has been kidnapped and must rise to the challenge.
According to AMC’s official synopsis of the third season of “Fear the Walking Dead,”
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.
Debuting in 2017, the third season of “Fear the Walking Dead” is an original story adapted from Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead.” “Fear the Walking Dead” was created by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson and stars Kim Dickens as Madison Clark, Cliff Curtis as Travis Manawa, Frank Dillane as Nick Clark, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia Clark, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia Salazar and Danay Garcia as Luciana.
