It’s almost odd to see all of the positive headlines, comments, and tweets about Fear the Walking Dead. Before, critics and fans bashed the show, but now they seem to have found their footing in the undead world.

The AMC series kicked off Season 3 a few weeks ago after a major cliffhanger that left the separated group’s fate in peril. Luciana had been shot. Nick left to find others. Madison, Travis, and Alicia went to search for the Clark boy.

Fear started off rather slow, but now they’re full steam ahead.

Comic Book writes:

“What started off as an often dull, slow burning entry to the zombie apocalypse fans had already fully embraced on The Walking Dead quickly transformed into a straight up survival series by the final few episodes of its second season.”

“The most complained about character, Chris Manawa, was brutally killed triggering his father Travis to finally snap and embrace the world around him. Finally, Cliff Curtis gets to let loose and play a hardened, ruthless survivor on this show like we all know he can! It’s what we have all been waiting for!”

“Wrong! Enter: Season 3 of Fear the Walking Dead.”

The series kicks off with Travis being escorted through a military compound. He shows his strength as he survives a herd of infected and saves his group from the new militia that threatened their lives.

Travis is finally taking charge and fans are pumped. Then, of course, a stray bullet rips through his body and sends him falling from a helicopter in the very beginning of the premiere’s second half.

With Travis gone, it seemed like the show had a clear leader, Madison. Then, in Episode 3 of Season 3, fan-favorite Ruben Blades’ Daniel Salazar reappears and essentially comes back from the dead.

Now, critics and fans are on board.

Have you caught up on this season of Fear the Walking Dead?
