The Walking Dead Season 3

As if you didn’t already know, The Walking Dead follows the story of a group of survivors after a zombie apocalypse led by police officer Rick Grimes. The series also stars Laurie Holden (Silent Hill), Norman Reedus (Blade II), Chandler Riggs (Get Low), Melissa McBride (The Mist), Lauren Cohan (Death Race II) and Danai Gurira (Ghost Town).

Season three has already seen a number of amazing twists and turns, as well as some very unexpected departures. The summary for the second half of the season is as follows:

With his group in tatters, his sanity in question, and his own son questioning his every move, Rick must somehow pull everyone together to face their greatest challenge — the Governor. In order to survive, he must risk everything, including the group’s very humanity.

So Rick and the rest of the group not only have to contend with flesh eating zombies trying to take eat them for breakfast, but now have a new threat in the form of the Governor. All will be revealed when the new season of The Walking Dead resumes next month!
