Season 3, retitled The Walking Dead: Season Three and The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier, is the third set of episodes for Telltale Games' The Walking Dead and the successor of Season Two and Season One.

Years later, they are in Virginia as they are traveling in their van. After a incident at a junkyard they stopped at for supplies which resulted in the end of Mariana’s life, Javier and his family along with a girl named Clementine go to Prescott, where they stay for a while until a rival group called the New Frontier, the people who ambushed the family at the junkyard, storm the settlement, where the main survivors flee. Soon, they plan to head to Richmond, where soon, they learn that the New Frontier is based in Richmond. The rest of the episodes are either in or near Richmond in Virginia.
