The show returns on Feb. 10 after taking a two-month break and, based on the trailer, will include a much-anticipated faceoff between Rick’s ragtag group of zombie apocalypse survivors and the Governor and his henchmen.
“We've established a certain scenario on our show where nobody is safe -- and certainly in the back-half of our season, it doesn't get easy for anybody,” executive producer Greg Nicotero told The Hollywood Reporter. “We'll probably end our season minus a cast member or two.”
“The Walking Dead” is, hands down, one of the best dramas on TV, and, thus far, Season 3 has done nothing to spoil that opinion.
Aside from the realistic depiction of what it would be like to endure a zombie infestation, the show has established a storyline and characters that viewers care about.
It’s interesting to see how the scope of the show has gone from the survivors having to fear and fight the undead in Season 1 and most of Season 2, to fearing and fighting each other the most.
Zombies—or walkers or biters—are now more of a minor nuisance in Season 3 than in previous seasons. The living deal with them like one would handle an insect.
That doesn’t mean the zombies are part of the family and should be embraced, it’s just that the survivors have become so adept at mauling the undead and now have to worry about the threat they pose to each other.
If you haven’t been watching “The Walking Dead,” shame on you! Your penance is to catch up on Seasons 1 and 2 on Netflix, Season 3 this summer and be in place for Season 4.
“The Walking Dead” returns on Sunday, Feb. 10, at 7 p.m. on AMC in Provo.
