EW Wakling dead covers 2 Walking Dead Season 3 Character Images: Merle, The Governer, Michonne & More

Are you preparing yourself for the coming zombie apocalypse? – Well EW is by debuting four epic covers featuring the battled-scared characters from the upcoming third season of AMC’s The Walking Dead.

These new covers exhibit a lot of possible foreshadowing – most noticeable the much-anticipated reuniting of the Dixon Brothers, Merle and Daryl. Barring a few injury-induced hallucinations, Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) hasn’t seen his racist big brother Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) since season 1, where Merle cut off his own hand to avoid becoming a pack of zombie’s Not-So-Happy Meal. It was previously announced that Merle would be seen alive and well in season 3 as a resident of The Governor’s Woodbury estate – but it also seems that Daryl will have divided loyalties between his new pseudo-family and his bayonet-brandishing brother.

Also severing up a heap of foreshadowing is the image of the infamous Governor (David Morrissey) sporting an enigmatic smile and wielding a large knife, which clearly isn’t for cutting a slice of sweet-potato pie. If you’re a fan of Robert Kirkman’s original Walking Dead comic series (upon which the TV show is based), you know all too well that the Governor has no hang-ups about turning that blade on not only the walking dead, but the incarcerated living – which some of our favorite Atlanta survivors learn first-hand (there’s a pun in there if you read the comics).

Acting as one of the Governor’s right-hand men this season is Dallas Roberts who has recently been cast as a new character in the show named Milton. While he may not have a comic book counterpart, Milton is described as “the details guy,” providing the Governor (and viewers) with some much needed information on the zombie pandemic.  Executive producer Robert Kirkman has this to say about what we can expect this season on The Walking Dead:

“This season really is about setting up these two worlds and watching them come to a head and collide. And you know that there are going to be some pretty explosive encounters between Rick and the Governor. This season is going to be about getting to know these two characters, and then waiting for their eventual confrontation that could destroy everything.”

Recently Kirkman also confirmed that season 3 will be split into two halves, with the first 8 episodes set to premiere on October 14, 2012, and the following 8 episodes airing in early spring 2013.

  1. YES!!! October can’t come fast enough!!!! Rick is a badass. And daryl needs a epic confrontation with merle.

  2. i love this series,the best zombie-make up and great actors and lots of bloody gore on t.v. one strange thing is that t.w.d was here in germany uncut on t.v, but -dawn of the dead- from romero is still on the black-list(index).

    • Then stop watching it. From what I can see, they don’t need your viewing to keep the show’s popularity going :). Yes, you are alone in your thoughs completely.

  3. This show is getting boring. I’m just really tired of the same CRAP.

    • if it’s so damn boring . Why you bring to ass to this site commenting about it .
      Anyways I can’t wait or October 14 th

  4. This show is getting boring. I’m just really tired of the same thing…

  5. ohh mannn the prison/ woodbury setting in comics was so awesome. cant wait to see how their gonna gonna go with the governer.

  6. Things are about to go down come October. Look for this season to take the show to a whole new level. 1st Season was the best? Uh, lets just say that will no longer be the case

  7. First season was some of the best I’ve seen on television. Second was very uneven. It added the element of drag. The first season was short, but high octane and constantly moving in plot.I don’t have many groundrules anymore when it comes to TV shows, as I’ve been pleasantly surprised too many times now and have quite a diverse taste in themes and genres. Pretty much the only rule I do have, is that if I can watch the first couple of episodes and the last one and feel like I’m in the loop when it ends, It’s not a great season.

    However, I felt rewarded for my patience with season two in one way. The twist, that they were all infected. I didn’t see it coming until the last couple of episodes.

  8. Can’t wait!!!

  9. I love this show but I hate waiting for the seasons it takes like 2 seasons for 1 season to realease like summer to fall fall to spring spring to fall….
