Walking Dead – Season Three: It Takes Brains to Succeed

By Gunner Glam

When sitting down on a a Sunday night this Halloween season, what better than to see characters running and killing the undead?

The best show for this? On Walking Dead Season Three, which began Sunday, October 14.

The main returning cast of the series includes:

Andrew Lincoln portrays the series’ protagonist Rick Grimes, a former deputy sheriff from King County, Georgia, who has established himself as the group’s leader.

Sarah Wayne Callies portrays Lori Grimes, Rick’s wife and Carl’s mother.

Chandler Riggs portrays Carl Grimes, Rick and Lori’s young son.

Laurie Holden portrays Andrea, a former successful civil rights attorney, who was separated from the group at the end of the second season.

Norman Reedus portrays Daryl Dixon, an antihero-like Southern gent who’s also the group’s primary hunter.

Steven Yeun portrays Glenn, a former pizza delivery boy.

Scott Wilson portrays Hersel Greene, a former farm owner who lives in rural Georgia and has lived there for many years with his family.

Lauren Cohan portrays Maggie Greene, Hershel’s tomboyish eldest daughter and Glenn’s lover.

Danai Gurira portrays Michonne, the hooded figure that saves Andrea in the season two finale and a prominently featured character in the comic series.

The third season of AMC’s television series The Walking Dead will feature 16 episodes. The series is based on the series of comic books of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard; it was developed for television by Frank Darabont, and is executive produced by Robert Kirkman and Glen Mazzara. As in the comics, the season will be set in both an abandoned prison and an active rural town of survivors. It introduces two characters from the comics, The Governor and Michonne.

The first eight episodes will run on Sundays from October through December 2. After the winter-mission, the season will resume on a yet-to-be-determined February date.

The first episode followed the story of after several months on the road, the group finds the prison and fights off walkers to get inside, trying to make a prison into a safe fortress. Lori (Callies), thinking her husband Rick (Lincoln) hates her and also fearing for her unborn child, confides in Hershel (Wilson). Elsewhere, Michonne (Gurira) tends to a feverish Andrea (Holden) as they seek safer refuge.

Stay tuned with Walking Dead Season Three Sundays on the American Film Channel at 9 pm/8 pm central time.

  1. first: i love how your blog has so many topics.
    second: i fuken love The Walking Dead! I’ve read every comic so when the show came out, you know i was hooked from the start. This season is going to be the sickness! the show doesn’t follow the comics exactly but to me that’s great because if it did, it would be boring seeing as i read the darn things. Michonne is a super duper dope character in the comics and she is turning out to be so in the show. the prison is just how i pictured it in my head when i read the comics and i’m surprised at how they did Herschel in episode 1 this season because in the comic, someone does go through that but it wasn’t him. supposedly, Merle comes back in this season. that will definitely be a trip and i can’t wait to see Darryl’s reaction to his brother being alive.
    lastly: I was going to blog about this show too but now I’ll just comment on your postings about the show!!!

  3. The Walking Dead is one of my favourite shows! I have watched it from the first episode of season one 🙂 I was disappointed that the season three finale was only one hour though, I thought it would be two! Are there any characters on the show that you really like or dislike?

    • It was an excellent start, although for a kick-off it could have been longer. Everyone on the show is great, dissapointed with who was killed off last season, but am glad the group is becoming closer and surviving together. That’s what creates the magic of the show. Thanks for your feedback =)
