FIRST LOOK: NEW ‘Walking Dead’ Season 3 PhotosJuly 14th, 2012 | Posted by in First Look | Television
AMC’s The Walking Dead returns in October but we have some more sneak peak pics from season 3 that will make you want to grab your machete and start filleting zombie brains.
The prison – seen in last season’s closer – looms large in the new season with, it looks like from these photos, our survivors fighting their way in seeking refuge from the zombie inmates who look oh-so-adorable in their prison blue jumpsuits.
And on a personal note, finally I can die happy (preferably from natural causes and not from a zombie apocalypse) after witnessing this new image of a sweaty and machete-wielding Maggie ready to decapitate a prison zombie.
Showrunner Glen Mazzaras says:
“What’s important to us is the prison itself is now a character in the show. It’s a haunted house, it’s scary, it’s frightening, and there are parts of the prison that are always terrifying, that are always inaccessible to our group. It’s not necessarily the blessing that the prison in the comic book turned out to be.”
Yeah, yeah, we get it, Glen, but the killer thing about the new season is we finally witness the return of Merle sporting what looks like a meat tenderizer where his right hand used to be, which may just come in, ahem, handy.
