As The Walking Dead prepares for war in its final Season 7 episodes, the Fear cast are rested and refreshed, ready to return for Season 3. We don’t yet have an official premiere date, though the first photos of Fear The Walking Dead Season 3 have arrived, along with a fresh synopsis.

Continuing its exploration of life along the U.S.-Mexican border (but like, with zombies), Fear The Walking Dead Season 3 is definitely down a few members after Season 2 killed off not one, but two major characters present from the series’ beginning. At the very least, Strand is still up to no good, while a new synopsis below the photos teases the three separate groups:

As “Fear the Walking Dead” returns for season three, our families will be brought together in the vibrant and violent ecotone of 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 (Kim Dickens) has reconnected with Travis (Cliff Curtis), her apocalyptic partner, but Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) has been fractured by her murder of Andres. Madison’s son mere miles from his mother, Nick’s (Frank Dillane) first action as a leader saw Luciana (Danay Garcia) ambushed by an American militia group — the couple escaped death, but Nick no longer feels immortal. Recovering both emotionally and physically, Strand (Colman Domingo) has his sights set on harnessing the new world’s currency, and Ofelia’s (Mercedes Mason) captivity will test her ability to survive and see if she can muster the savagery of her father.

Also worth noting, the third season will consist of a full sixteen episodes, matching the flagship series. Stay tuned for a first teaser and details on a likely spring-summer premiere in the meantime.
