Fear the Walking Dead tells the story of a group of survivors after the outbreak of a mystery epidemic that turns people into the infected.
After two dramatic, suspense-filled seasons, which have seen the group flee the infected on land and sea, season three picks up where season two left off, with the group splintered, but heading for the same destination – the US-Mexico border.

What's it about?
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 US-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.”
Who's in the cast?
Returning cast members play the core group of survivors. Cliff Curtis plays Travis Manawa, while Kim Dickens is his partner, Madison Clark. Frank Dillane plays Madison’s son Nick and Alycia Debnam-Clark plays her daughter, Alicia. Colman Domingo is Strand and Mercedes Mason is Ofelia Salazar.
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.
