Sorry, zombie lovers. Those looking forward to a new episode of AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” will have to wait another week because the latest installment will not air at its regular time on Sunday, Sept. 6, at 9 p.m. ET.
Because it is a holiday weekend, “The Walking Dead” spinoff show is taking a brief hiatus in between its second and third episode.

The episode will find Travis (Cliff Curtis), Liza (Elizabeth Rodriguez) and Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie) with the Salazar family after they managed to get out of the dangerous street. However, it looks like a fire in the building next door will force the group to leave the safe haven. Elsewhere, Madison (Kim Dickens) will attempt to defend her home and keep her children safe as Nick (Frank Dillane) continues to detox.
