The third season of The Walking Dead spin-off Fear The Walking Dead will receive its UK premiere on AMC Global on Monday June 5th at 2am with a double-bill, simulcast with AMC’s east coast feed.
In addition to the 2am simulcast, AMC Global will repeat the two episodes later that same day in the show’s regular 9pm time-slot. The first half of season three will air over six week, with the two-part finale airing on Monday July 10th.
Created by Robert Kirkman & Dave Erickson, Fear The Walking Dead is set at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse – a time when the world was changing rapidly for reasons unknown, before anyone understood exactly what was happening, when life as everyone knew it was upended and altered in ways no one could have ever imagined – and follows three blended families as they attempt to survive the end of the world. The drama series is produced by AMC Studios and stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Mercedes Mason, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Daniel Sharman, Sam Underwood and Lisandra Tena.
In the show’s third season the 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, they 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. 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.
