CLEVELAND, Ohio - Odds are, with all the talk about "The Walking Dead's" seventh season, the deaths of major characters and a return to solid storytelling, you've forgotten about "Fear the Walking Dead."
The spinoff series hasn't experienced the level of success as its parent show. In fact, ratings have dropped to less than a third of the viewers "TWD" gets.
But "Fear" will return for a third season (probably in August) for what is likely to be a make or break run. Season 2 wasn't all that compelling and left the characters split up in various circumstances.
It will be interesting to see if fans still care about the show (and its attached Web series "Passage") when "Fear" returns. AMC has released the official synopsis for the upcoming season, which you can read below:
"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."
