Season 3 of “The Walking Dead“ is approaching fast. Remember the key art last year that showed Rick running up to the farmhouse? This new one takes a similar approach in setting up the season’s backdrop.
In Season 3, premiering October 14, “Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company will face a brand new threat – one that is very much human. While Rick and the gang are busy clearing out a prison in the hopes of transforming it into a protective fortress, not so far away is the town of Woodbury, Georgia, and its self-appointed leader, the Governor (David Morrissey).”

AMC’s third season of “The Walking Dead” is in the midst of production and, while it will be a while before it starts airing, the network has not been shy about keeping the show on everyone’s radar. This behind-the-scenes video with Visual Effects Supervisor Victor Scalise shows a lot of cool stuff from Season 2, and hints a little bit about what’s to come in Season 3. Unfortunately since we’re still some months off from the show’s premiere we’ll have to wait to see any actual footage.
The show, “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.”

Update: San Diego Comic-Con panel highlights added inside!
Is this the return of the Season 1 left-behinds? We all know that Michael Rooker’s Merle Dixon will be coming back for “The Walking Dead Season 3“. Now Lennie James (Snatch), who heartbreakingly portrayed Morgan Jones in the Pilot Episode (having to shoot his zombie wife – ouch), is saying the producers have occasionally reached out to him to come back but he’s been too busy.
He tells Digital Spy, “It remains a possibility I could return. The character I played is away for a long time, so it’s kind of up to them whether I stay away or if I come back. There have been a few back and forth conversations and they check up on me every now and then. I had a fantastic time working on the pilot with Andy Lincoln and especially Frank Darabont. He’s somebody that I’d directorially always wanted to work with and I’m glad I got the opportunity.”
James added, “There’s a possibility I might go back. It just depends on timing-wise if I’m free. At least one of the times they contacted me about it, I was busy doing something else.”
Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) returns this fall alongside newly added Michonne (Danai Gurira) and the villain known simply as The Governor (David Morrissey). READ MORE
