Ready for the return of Rick, Daryl and Michonne? Will Madison, Alicia and Daniel Salazar do instead?
Fear The Walking Dead will finish up its third season on AMC soon. Today Entetainment Weekly broke an exclusive three-minute trailer, which you can watch below. “Going into the back half of the season, all bets are off,” says showrunner Dave Erickson. “The Nation has arrived at the Ranch.” “The second half of Season 3 is dramatic,” adds Kim Dickens, lead actress. “It’s gonna get pretty messy.”
However, it may not be the kind of mess you expect. Sometimes the zombies are a threat on a zombie show and sometimes they aren’t. Currently the undead have taken a backseat to conflict between two communities — and the regular series (returning late October) is in the same situation, so if it’s zombies you’re looking for, I suggest tuning into the adventures of Liv Moore on The CW. In the meantime, the residents of the Ranch and the Black Hat Reservation will take plenty of swings at each other. Here are a few right now:
The current conflict is a classic land dispute: the Ranchers have been living on their own patch of land for a while. The Reservation believes that land has always been theirs, that it was forcefully taken from them. and it’s time to take it back. The season will open with a truce being struck, allowing the Ranchers to keep the land but the Reservation members to move in with them.
“Here we go,” deadpans Alicia. Indeed. Fear The Walking Dead returns to AMC on September 10.
