Interview: Fear The Walking Dead Showrunner Dave Erickson on What’s to Come in the Second Half of Season 3

  • DailyDead
In the chaotic carnage of the apocalypse, can enemies come together to outlive the living dead? We'll find out when Madison opens the gates of Broke Jaw Ranch to The Nation, and with the mid-season 3 premiere episode airing September 10th on AMC, I had the great pleasure of speaking with Dave Erickson about the back half of his final season as Fear The Walking Dead showrunner (he'll be busy developing another series for AMC), including the deepening divide between Madison and her children, tense times at Broke Jaw Ranch, and the aftereffects of a critical kill.

Congratulations on the first half of season 3, which was really timely and compelling television. Now we’re seeing [Qaletqa] Walker’s people moving into Broke Jaw ranch and everyone is going to have to try and co-exist peacefully, which feels timely with current events right now. Did real life events impact the writers’ room for this season?

Tom Welling Joins Cast of ‘Lucifer’ for Season 3
Superman is now going to dance with the devil.

Tom Welling — best known for his 10-season run as Clark Kent on The CW’s “Smallville” — has signed on for the cast of Fox’s “Lucifer” for its third season.

Welling will play Marcus Pierce, an accomplished police lieutenant. While he’s reserved and well-respected, like Lucifer (Tom Ellis), he’s charming, charismatic and handsome. So when Pierce starts developing a connection with Decker (Lauren German), the devil comes out in Lucifer.

Welling, who starred in the film “The Choice,” also directed several episodes of “Smallville” and served as an executive producer on the series.

When “Lucifer” returns for season three, Lucifer has resolved the problem of Mom aka Charlotte (Tricia Helfer) — but he must confront the problem of figuring out who kidnapped him and why his angel wings have returned.

In its second season, “Lucifer” averaged a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.83 viewers in Nielsen’s
