The spin-off of AMC’s runaway hit The Walking Dead has had its ups and downs: While the audience it does have is devoted and enthusiastic, it’s been hard for the show to pull in the viewer numbers that impress network execs. But those of you who know how amazing the show is also know that the Fear the Walking Dead season 3 midseason premiere is imminent, and we bet you’re counting down until it’s time to turn on the TV.
You can scroll down now to find out when exactly the Fear the Walking Dead season 3 midseason premiere will start on AMC, but for those of you who need a refresher, we’ll go over what went down in the first half of Fear the Walking Dead season 3, and a little about what you should look forward to in the three remaining episodes.
Here comes Fear the Walking Dead season 3 episode 9
Every AMC fan has a love-hate relationship with the network thanks to their annoying habit of pairing exciting shows with mid-season siestas. But the long wait is finally over, fans, and you can look forward to two hour-long episodes this Sunday when the series comes back with episode 9, called ‘Minotaur,’ and episode 10, ‘Diviner.’
That’s right: Even though there are four episodes left in Fear the Walking Dead season 3, you’re getting them all in just three short weekends, starting with the zombie-fest Sunday, September 10 when the series returns. The following two weekends of September 17 and September 24 will have one episode each, ‘La Serpiente’ and ‘Brother’s Keeper’ respectively.
Fans know that this season has been a bit of a departure for the series, moving along faster than ever before and saying goodbye to Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) in the season 3 premiere. The characters going through the most change this season are undeniably those of Madison Clark’s family, who have gone from captives to leaders in just eight episodes.
Although most of the main characters managed to make it through the first half of Fear the Walking Dead season 3 alive — even seeing the return of Daniel Salazar (Rubén Blades), who was presumed dead after season 2’s mid-season finale — there’s still four episodes left, and the season has proven that the show isn’t afraid of killing off many people. So don’t presume anyone safe just yet.
So, what time does the Fear the Walking Dead season 3 midseason premiere start?
The second half of the AMC show will kick off with Fear the Walking Dead season 3 episode 9 on Sunday, September 10 at 9 p.m. ET. Mark your calendars for a double feature, though, since the Fear the Walking Dead season 3 midseason premiere includes not just episode 9 but also episode 10.
