Critics Consensus

A distinctive ensemble brings a compelling flavor of Fear to The Walking Dead mythos, but this ambitious spinoff still shares its originator's penchant longwinded pacing that may diminish the tension for some viewers.

Critic Reviews for Fear the Walking Dead Season 3

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Fear the Walking Dead has come to resemble ... a complicated soap opera set among scruffy yet fashionably dressed survivors who deal with each other's feelings even as a decomposing dead guy occasionally staggers through the frame.

Episodes 2 and 3 are an encouraging start, and the new setting has promise, with plenty of possible character dynamics to explore.

Although it has improved, Fear the Walking Dead continues to suffer from characters that satisfy the viewer, that make you want to accompany them in their survival adventure, to mark them in some way. [Full Review in Spanish]

    Out of all TWD material FTWD Season 3 is the most intriguing. Great set pieces, interesting characters, and non stop excitement.

    This season as a whole was fantastic, and I would almost say better than your average season of The Walking Dead.

    Best season of the FTWD and better than what the Walking dead has become. Complex and interesting characters, painted under a very realistic light, excellent writing, gripping and lasting tension throughout the season.

    Craziest and best season of Fear yet and I’ve seen all the seasons! The characters really start to show who they truly are and to know exactly hat they’re doing, no more learning how to just keep from being eaten, now it’s about survival and trying to make some sort of life. the cast, especially Kim Dickens and Colman Domingo are amazing at portraying interesting and complex characters!

    Season 3 was pretty fantastic all around. It was fast paced, had very interesting conflicts, never stayed anywhere too long making it always feel fresh and dynamic and had some truly great episode gems like 'this land is your land', one of the best installments of the twdverse and featuring brilliant performances like alycia debnam's carey's tour de force. it also had the very charismatic new foe, troy otto, as a scene stealer throughout the season, as well as absolutely gorgeous cinematography that has become a distinguishing characteristic of fear.

    Some of the most unlikeable characters ever, prove over and over agan that you should not let them into your post-apocalyptic camp for any reason, because they will destroy it. Social justice themes abounD
