AMC Sets Premiere Date for Season 3 of 'Fear the Walking Dead'

AMC has today announced the premiere date for the third season of hit drama series Fear the Walking Dead.

The first half of the season will consist of eight episodes airing over six weeks, with two back-to-back episodes premiere on Sunday, June 4 and a midseason finale of two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, July 9.

In the third season, the families will be brought together in the vibrant and violent region formerly known as the U.S.-Mexico border. International lines down 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 he can muster the savagery of her father.

The new season stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curti, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Mercedes Mason, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Dayton Callie, Daniel Sharman, Sam Underwood and Lisandra Tena.

Dave Erickson and Robert Kirkman developed the series. They executive produce with Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert.
