When “Fear the Walking Dead” returns to AMC on June 4 for its third season, fans are reportedly going to experience a non-stop onslaught of violence and gore in the two-hour season premiere. According to showrunner Dave Erickson, the action will be “spectacular” and he said their goal is to not give the audience, or the characters in the show, “a chance to breathe.” He said the stakes of season 3 will be established very quickly as the zombie horror show returns.

Madison and Nick to reunite in ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Season 3

There is some good news, as Kim Dickens's character, Madison will get together with her son Nick (with Frank Dillane in the role) in the third season.

However, the bad news is that the whole family will start Season 3 imprisoned by the militia group we saw at the end of the second season.

Daniel Salazar to return from the 'dead'

While we thought Rubén Blades' character, Daniel Salazar was dead, when he torched himself along with a Mexican compound in the last season, it turns out he’s still out there.

Strand returns to his con man ways

As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Colman Domingo's character, Strand looks to change character from the kinder person he had become in Season 2. Erickson teases that Strand will be heading back into his con man ways in Season 3 of "Fear the Walking Dead".

What he is best at is recognizing what is worth exploiting, and then going ahead and doing just that.

While fans of the original zombie seriesThe Walking Dead [VIDEO]” have been known to refer to “Fear the Walking Dead” as being a little lame in comparison, this will reportedly change drastically.

Erickson says in Season 3 things are going to get much darker, where characters will be brought into an uglier, twisted place, where they will have to find a way to retain their hope and former humanity. According to Erickson, they won’t all manage that very well. He added that particularly with Madison, the story will be very dark before it finally sees some light.

Season 3 of “Fear the Walking Dead” will premiere with a two-hour special on June 4, on AMC.
