The footage includes shocking moments for all the survivors as Madison (Kim Dickens), Nick (Frank Dillane), Travis (Cliff Curtis), Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) and Strand (Colman Domingo) face fresh dangers and enemies.

Madison, Alicia and Travis are shown being marched by soldiers towards a large wall. Meanwhile, Strand is being dangled off a ledge in a life-or-death showdown.

Nick is an equally sticky situation, walking through a tunnel to find himself confronted by a mob of zombies.

Fear the Walking Dead season 3 will air eight episodes over six weeks with double-bills for the premiere and finale. AMC is exclusive to BT customers.

Joining the cast as series regulars for season three are British actors Daniel Sharman (The Originals, Teen Wolf) and Sam Underwood (The Following) as well as Dayton Callie (Sons of Anarchy, Deadwood), 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, and Lisandra Tena (Chicago P.D.) as Lola Guerrero.

Fear the Walking Dead season 3

Details about the plot of season 3 were previously revealed by AMC:

“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.”
