After a lengthy winter hiatus, The Walking Dead Season 3 will finally return to air this Sunday. And while it’s unlikely that fans can get any more excited about the return of their favorite post-apocalyptic show, a newly released clip and images for the upcoming premiere give fans a glimpse of what’s ahead.
The one-minute clip, likely from the beginning of Sunday’s premiere, picks up with fan-favorite comic character Tyreese and his sister, Sasha, officially joining the group of survivors. When Hershel’s daughter Beth carries in Rick’s newborn daughter Judith, it gives the newcomers a look at a new life birthed within all this madness. Sasha asks the obvious question… “Where is its mother?”
This video, which showcases the story from the survivor’s side, mirrors the previously released clip from the Governor’s perspective. Of course, on the Governor’s side, he has Merle and Daryl pitted against each other in a battle for survival, not letting the loss of his eye go without punishment.
In the pictures however, Andrea is shown running through the town of Woodbury, and it appears that she may be attempting to gather a group together rise up against the Governor, perhaps to save Daryl’s life. Of course, it is Andrea – so who knows what she could really be doing.
Additionally, there’s also a photo of the aforementioned Dixon brother battle as well as a peek of a special guest, former NFL wide receiver Hines Ward, who will be playing a zombie in the premiere. And of course, no photo gallery of The Walking Dead would be completely without a photo of Rick controlling (or consoling) someone. This time it’s Carol.
As The Walking Dead season 3 enters in to its second-half this week, audiences will get to see the final episodes of now-fired showrunner Glen Mazzara. And although some reports have said that Mazzara’s firing came after having to delay production of during the filming of these episode for lack of material to shoot, among other things, suggesting that these upcoming episode may not match the quality of those that came before it, audiences shouldn’t be too concerned of what’s the come. Thankfully, the prison and the Governor still have many more stories to tell. Let’s just hope that Mazzara was eventually able to capture them – because The Walking Dead season 4 is happening, no matter what.
