Fear The Walking Dead fans know that season 2 ended on a violent and mysterious note, and with filming currently underway on season 3 of the series in Baja, Mexico, AMC has unveiled the first photos and official synopsis to give fans an idea of where the show is heading next.

An exact premiere date for Fear The Walking Dead Season 3 has not yet been announced, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed. In the meantime, check out the synopsis and photos below, and in case you missed it, check out the new Fear The Walking Dead web series Passage, as well as details on Emma Caulfield (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) being cast in a guest-starring role in season 3.

Synopsis: "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.

“Fear the Walking Dead” returns this summer with a third season of 16 all-new episodes. Viewers have a chance to catch-up on the latest season of “Fear,” which is currently available On Demand through Monday, March 20 and on Hulu beginning Tuesday, March 21.

A wholly original companion series to “The Walking Dead,” the #1 show on television among adults 18-49 for the last five years, “Fear the Walking Dead” explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the eyes of a fractured family. The series is executive produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert and showrunner Dave Erickson and produced by AMC Studios."
