AMC’s The Walking Dead returns in February to finish up its third season and will kick things off with 03.09 “The Suicide King”. The third promo video for the episode has just surfaced and it looks pretty intense!

In this season’s back-half, “With his group in tatters, his sanity in question, and his own son questioning his every move, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) must somehow pull everyone together to face their greatest challenge — the Governor (David Morrissey). In order to survive, he must risk everything, including the group’s very humanity.

You’ll also recall that just a month or two back showrunner Glen Mazzara left the program. This news was somewhat disconcerting seeing as he seemed to be one of the folks instrumental in revitalizing the show. Now Variety is reporting that series writer Scott Gimple is in talks to take over. Gimple wrote such episodes as “Hounded” and “18 Miles Out”. He also has a credit on Ghost Rider 2: Spirit Of Vengeance, but who knows how much of that he’s actually responsible for.

Head inside to check out the promo! “The Walking Dead” returns on Feb 10th at 9/8C.
