The third season of The Walking Dead's sibling series was the strongest entry to the franchise. Eliminating a key character in the first episode and introducing an entirely new batch of faces while taking time to develop the names fans already knew helped craft a brilliantly written, paced, and produced 16 episode run.
"If I'm being completely candid," Fear Season 3 showrunner Erickson told ComicBook.com, "Season One was Season One. It was six episodes. We were trying to edge up toward the moment close to where [The Walking Dead's] Rick [Grimes] was gonna be coming out of his coma. Just in terms of timeline, you know, so there was a lot of story to bite off, and we needed to be somewhat ambitious and accelerate, and that's why we had a time cut between episode three and four. That really dictated the narrative to a certain degree."
In the most recent season of the AMC show, fans remained near the Mexican-American border as Madison lead her group to Broke Jaw Ranch. There, the intolerant Otto family was offering people of their choosing a sanctuary on land Native Americans were eager to claim. An all new type of border war ensued as tensions grew in other new locations with characters such as Daniel Salazar and Victor Strand building differences between one another.
Season Three of Fear the Walking Dead may end up being crucial for The Walking Dead fans who will hop onboard the sibling series as Lennie James' Morgan Jones character is set to crossover.
The Walking Dead returns for the second half of its eighth season on February 25, 2018. Fear the Walking Dead will debut its fourth season after The Walking Dead concludes its eighth, at 10 pm ET on April 15. For complete coverage and insider info all year long, follow @BrandonDavisBD on Twitter.
