"Fear the Walking Dead" premieres season 3 in less than one week. Fans are getting excited, especially with all the new information that is being released. Executive producer Dave Erickson has hinted spoilers in several interviews. The latest tidbit has to do with the death of one character. The showrunner explained that he wanted to give this individual a "heroic arc." He wouldn't give away who dies in "FTWD," but everyone is trying to predict who will be saying goodbye.

Who is most likely to get a heroic arc in 'FTWD'?

According to ComicBook.com, Dave Erickson said someone would get a heroic arc in season 3 of "Fear The Walking Dead." Nearly everyone in the show has done at least one thing to save others.

However, the showrunner is making it sound like the heroic act is out of character for one particular individual. Two people come to mind: master manipulator Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) and recovering addict Nick Clark (Frank Dillane).

Character plays hero before random and sudden death

Erickson hinted that one character saves the lives of his or her loved ones. Then, a sudden, random, and senseless act of violence takes this individual away from the group. This means that the death will not be easily predicted. Just as the person plays hero and everyone thinks they are safe, the "FTWD" cast member will be killed off. The words "senseless act of violence" seem to go hand-in-hand with the militia group seen during the season 2 finale.

Could Madison (Kim Dickens), Travis (Cliff Curtis), or Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) be saying farewell to fans?

Death will have a big impact on the others

It was explained that the character death will profoundly affect the rest of the group. It has to be one of the lead actors that is leaving the show. Even though Luciana (Danay Garcia) and Nick have a bond, the others have not met the surviving La Colonia resident.

Yes, Luciana is a memorable and important character to fans, but she means nothing to the rest of the group. At least, not in the beginning of season 3. A few episodes could change all of that.

An important character leaves 'Fear The Walking Dead'

Dave Erickson explained that this particular death will happen to a character that is important.

He also said that this death will be a pivotal moment and it will affect the rest of season 3. Who could die that would affect the entire group and set the tone for the rest of the season? It has to be someone that everyone really cares about. Since they are a "family," the executive producer could be talking about any of the main characters. Is it possible that Madison or Travis could die when "FTWD" returns?

Who do you think dies in "Fear The Walking Dead" season 3? Fans will find out soon. AMC begins airing new episodes on June 4.
