Our first look at season 3 of Fear the Walking Dead is here, as AMC has just released three new images for the next batch of episodes, which will air this summer.

In the images, we see Strand (Colman Domingo) in some seriously fancy digs with blood on his hands — literally. And then there is new dynamic duo Nick (Frank Dillane) and Luciana (Danay Garcia) appearing in serious distress — although, to be fair, who isn’t in serious distress in the zombie apocalypse? And finally we have Madison (Kim Dickens) and Travis (Cliff Curtis) looking very intense and holding on tight — again, always a good strategy in the zombie apocalypse.


But what does it all mean? Here is the official synopsis for season 3, released by AMC:

“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.”
