Audible, multiplatform content company Skybound Entertainment, and global media company Anonymous Content today announced the premiere date of Impact Winter Season 3, alongside new and returning cast for the groundbreaking vampire-apocalypse audio drama, debuting exclusively from Audible on July 18. The hit scripted audio series from the executive producers of The Walking Dead and Invincible (Skybound Entertainment) and writer Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim) returns for an action-packed third installment following the successful debuts of Season 1 and 2.

“Working with Audible, Skybound, and Anonymous Content, and this incredible cast for the third season continues to be about the most fun I’ve ever had. It’s a story I’ve been living with for some time now and could never have done justice without the support of such an impassioned team of collaborators,” said Beacham. “I think this season has some genuinely wild card turns that I can’t wait for people to hear.”

The forthcoming installment continues six months after the crushing conclusion of Season 2. Winter grows colder, a dire gloom tightens her grip on the land, and Hope Dunraven grapples with strange voices that insist she alone may hold the key to defeating it. But how can one mortal woman stand against such suffocating darkness—when that darkness is her own sister, Darcy? The tangled world of Impact Winter grows vast in Season 3, widening to reveal shadowy new adversaries, ancient mysteries, untold gods, unexpected monsters, and a battle that will forever change everyone it touches, and test both Dunraven sisters as never before.
