EW has landed two new images from AMC’s third season of “The Walking Dead“, both taking us inside the hotly anticipated prison setting that was one of the epicenters of Image and Robert Kirkman’s comic series.
In the first photo, our survivors assume a defensive, Avengers-like position to handle any incoming ghouls, while in the second, a machete wielding Maggie (Lauren Cohan) prepares to deliver a kill shot to a zombie inmate.
“I’m incredibly proud of the prison,” says showrunner Glen Mazzara to the mag. “I think our crew has done a great job. It’s a huge sense of scale and magnitude I haven’t seen on any other show as far as construction. What’s important to us is the prison itself is now a character in the show. It’s a haunted house, it’s scary, it’s frightening, and there are parts of the prison that are always terrifying, that are always inaccessible to our group. It’s not necessarily the blessing that the prison in the comic book turned out to be.”
But we all know why we’re really excited… the introduction of both Michonne (Danai Gurira) and The Governor (David Morrissey). Hell, friggin’, yes.
