SPOILER ALERT: This article discusses Season 3 of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid spoilers.

Season 3 of Fear the Walking Dead is nearly upon us. Already, fans are wondering just how the main characters will survive the zombie apocalypse after the events of Season 2. Will Nick (Frank Dillane) be reunited with his mother? What will happen to Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) now that he has decided to stay behind at the hotel? How will Travis (Cliff Curtis) cope with the loss of his son? Is that really Daniel Salazar (Ruben Blades) in the latest Season 3 trailer?

Along with these questions, there is also some new characters being thrown into the mix in Season 3 of Fear the Walking Dead. A new militia group will join the Season 3 cast according to Entertainment Weekly. This group is “prepared for the apocalypse” and while they didn’t foresee an undead uprising, they “definitely anticipated the fall of democracy.”

Along with this news, Alycia Debnam-Carey revealed to BT that the opening episodes of Season 3 of Fear the Walking Dead will be “dramatically different” compared to previous episodes.

“I think they definitely upped the pace and they upped the action. They added some great new characters as well. It adds a whole new element of power dynamics and power struggles which is really cool. We are in a bigger environment and world together that is really exciting for us to explore. It’s made everything a lot more energized.”

While it is unclear just how the opening episodes of Season 3 will be so different from previous episodes, there is the suggestion that the Season 3 premiere will be more action-packed than previous premieres. This might be just the thing the show needs, since many fans have been complaining that the pace of Fear the Walking Dead is much slower than its companion program, The Walking Dead.

While the opening of Season 3 of Fear might be different, some things never change. Take Alicia, for example. There is the suggestion she might get a new love interest moving forward into Season 3. However, Alycia was hesitant to give away too many details.

“If there is [romance], it wouldn’t be a romance in the pure, current sense of the word. It would be more of an apocalyptic relationship – but I really can’t reveal anymore!”

The official synopsis for Season 3 of Fear the Walking Dead is 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.”
