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.
