Prepare for the return of Fear the Walking Dead with a featurette

Fear the Walking Dead, the companion series to The Walking Dead, will be returning to AMC airwaves to roll out the second half of its third season beginning on Sunday, September 10th, and now you can prepare for the show's return by watching a promotional featurette.

The synopsis for the season goes like this: 

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.

The mid-season finale that aired in early July was somewhat confounding to me; I had expected some large scale violence to flare up, I thought that would be the only dramatically satisfying conclusion to the building tension between a group of survivors living on a ranch and a group of Native Americans who believe the ranch land is rightfully theirs. But instead of all-out war the show only delivered a low-key (but still violent) agreement. I shouldn't have been surprised, as time and again Fear the Walking Dead has built me up to expect action and then opted to aim for something smaller and quieter than I had in mind. That doesn't make for the most satisfying viewing experience, sometimes it's frustrating, but I guess it's good that I'm not able to accurately predict what's going to happen on this show.

Action is promised once again in the featurette below, in which executive producer Dave Erickson and cast members Kim Dickens, Colman Domingo, Ruben Blades, Sam Underwood, Michael Greyeyes, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Mercedes Mason, and Daniel Sharman discuss what's ahead in the second half of season three without giving away any spoilers.

I'll be watching Fear the Walking Dead when it returns, but I'll be keeping my expectations of action in check.
