‘Fear the Walking Dead’ (AMC, June 4 at 9 p.m.)

This Season’s Theme: “Rebuilding society, rebuilding civilization, and what are you willing to do to accomplish that?” says showrunner Dave Erickson.

Where We Left Off: Travis’s son Chris was killed by some rowdy guys he’d befriended, and Travis (Cliff Curtis) beat them to death in retaliation. Travis, Madison (Kim Dickens), and Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) fled the hotel and went looking for Nick (Frank Dillane), who managed to get to the border with Luciana (Danay Garcia), only to be shot at and captured by a group of armed men.

Coming Up: Maddie and her family find a new home in the form of a ranch run by Jeremiah Otto (Sons of Anarchy alum Dayton Callie), a doomsday prepper whose hacienda is a refuge for the like-minded. But Otto and his cohorts aren’t ready for the devolving post-apocalyptic — read: zombified — world outside the ranch, and Madison sees an opening for her family to not only settle at the ranch… but take it over.

Family First: “As we had fractured the family in such a profound way last season, the goal is to start slowly finding ways to reintegrate all of our characters into that core family,” says Erickson, who will leave FTWD as showrunner at the end of Season 3. “That’s something we can look forward to as the season progresses.” — Kimberly Potts
