The Walking Dead’s West Coast offshoot Fear the Walking Dead returns for its third season on June 4, and its stars are saying that this is the most action-packed one yet.
“The pace of the show very much feels to me like it’s up a notch,” says Cliff Curtis, who plays Travis Manawa. “We’re much more attuned to the apocalypse and so we’re ready to take action.”
For Travis, this means finally throwing away the moral compass he tried so desperately to cling to. He tried to stay the good man he was before the apocalypse, but his goodness didn’t help him survive, and it didn’t save his son Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie). Now Travis is sliding into full-on nihilism.
“It’s been a long and very restrained journey for Travis to finally come to terms with his own morality and to put that aside and get on with the killing,” says Curtis.
Fear The Walking Dead isn’t going away anytime soon. The Walking Dead companion series is already renewed through Season 4 in 2018.
