Mark Monday 5th June into your calendars people as that marks the return of AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead, with UK audiences being treated to access to the new series at the same time as America, with a 2.00am schedule time coming by way of the AMC Channel on BT TV. A repeat of the double-bill opener will be available at 9.00pm on the same day and will be made available to Freeview viewers courtesy of the BT Showcase channel.
The new series will consist of eight episodes airing over six weeks, with a mid-season finale of back-to-back episodes arriving on Monday 10th July.
In addition to the confirmed airing dates for the show, two new cast members are set to make their presence felt, in the form of British pair Daniel Sharman (Teen Wolf) and Sam Underwood (The Following), as well as Lisandro Tena (Chicago P.D.).
The synopsis for the third season can be found below.
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.
