What Happens Next: ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 3 Details Revealed

Ever since The Walking Dead became a hit TV show for AMC, fans of Robert Kirkman's survival horror comic book series have been waiting for certain iconic moments to be translated  to the screen. If there is one thing that season 2 of The Walking Dead has taught us, it is that the minds behind the television version have plenty of surprises in store, in terms of how and when those milestone comic moments happen onscreen.

Withe the season 2 finale now aired, Walking Dead fans are already looking ahead to season 3, which show creator Frank Darabont hinted would include fan-favorite character Michonne - a hint later echoed by Robert Kirkman himself. Now we know who is playing the iconic role of Michonne: Danai Gurira, best known for her guest role as Jill, on HBO's Treme.

Is Merle Coming Back in Season Two

In other Walking Dead news, Daily Dead reports that actor Michael Rooker let it be known that his character Merle (seen above) will indeed be back in season 3. Will he be a hallucination once again? Or will he be in cahoots with a certain Governor? Only time will tell. In the meantime, read on for some details about Michonne.
