Here is the official synopsis from Telltale:
When family is all you have left… how far will you go to protect it? Four years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to find the family taken from him, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last.
Telltale Studios stated that the premiere of season 3 was too big to fit into one episode, and would be released as two full episodes. This is good news, as it means there should be a lot of content available on day one!
