Since being abandoned on a rooftop in Season 1, Merle Dixon has been the source of fervent fan speculation. (Where is he? Is he alive?) Today, AMC confirms that Merle (played by genre fav Michael Rooker) will return in The Walking Dead Season 3.”

Check out this first look at the character — sporting a new arm accessory — in The Walking Dead Season 3.

Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) returns this fall alongside newly added Michonne (Danai Gurira) and the villain known simply as The Governor (David Morrissey).

“The Walking Dead” tells the story of the weeks and months that follow a pandemic zombie apocalypse. County Sheriff Rick Grimes travels with his family and a small group of survivors, constantly in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis takes a heavy toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty. As Rick struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth.

    i know i’m in the minority here but i really hate the Merle character (not in a good “i hate the villain” type of hate). Michael Rooker is awesome but his Merle was just so over the top that it was a joke. IMO. that being said, i think season 3 could turn out to be the best season yet (with Michonne, with Andrea now being a badass, with them being off the fucking farm, with the 3 way love triangle now over).

    The character of Merle was the dumbest, most overthetop character in tv history. He was simply there for some good old “Race” drama. And the laziest writing team in history lifted the most well known movie scenario in history and used it for Merle’s demise. Mad Max…. I think AMC is really ruining the Walking Dead with their cheap writing, I know its become easy to blame cheap writing for the shows quality, but it’s a typical complaint because it’s true. Uwe Bole developes better characters.

    Mr D youre a fucking asshole. You put MAJOR fucking spoilers in the god damn headline and included a pic on the front page with MAJOR spoilers? Youre a dick and incredibly fucking thoughtless. Id been avoiding reading about the new season because I wanted to be surprised and here you blow a big plot point with me just because I skimmed your site? You do this shit all the time with posting spoilers on the front page, when youre not doing that youre going on some rant like a baby about kevin smith or something else you cry about. No wonder other horror sites laugh at you, hell even cinema suicide multiple times has commented on you being a retard. Even when Id seen you at horrorhound in indiana and tried to say hi you cowered away from me with that hat pulled over your eyes. Im done visiting this site because you have spoiled the last thing for me.

    I’m dying to see what twists and turns they have in store for season 3. I’m a longtime fan of the comic, so I have a love-hate relationship for the way the writers incorporate the original material with their twists and turns. It should be a fun one.
