Entertainment Weekly has unveiled four new magazine covers featuring characters from AMC’s The Walking Dead. I’m excited about the upcoming season, the last promo trailer released for it was pretty bloody fantastic! This next season will be focusing on two different worlds colliding when Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company have to face-off against the Governor (David Morrissey) and the town of Woodbury, Ga., after they take over a prison overrun by zombies.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like these two communities are going to get along very well in this new post-apocalyptic world in which they live. The Walking Dead creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman had this to say,
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.
We’re definitely in for an awesomely intense third season! I hope it turns out being the best season yet! The four covers include Rick Grimes, the Governor, Michonne (Danai Gurira) and brothers Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Merle (Michael Rooker).
AMC also recently announced that a new character has been created for the show, and they’ve cast Dallas Roberst to play him. Here’s a description of this new character from Kirkman,
Milton is the details guyHe’s the guy that works with the Governor, who is monitoring all situations and is trying to help the Governor make sense of this world that they’re living in. He’s not exactly a scientist, but he’s a smart guy that is trying to find out how zombies behave. Watching him do his little experiments is going to be a lot of fun.
The Walking Dead comes back to life on Sunday October 14th at 9pm on AMC! I can’t wait!
