New promo for AMC's The Walking Dead season 3; series set for a fourth season

AMC's The Walking Dead has been a cultural phenomenon.  Granted, zombies have always been a popular genre, but it really feels at its peak now. Certainly, it owes some thanks to masters like George Romero, but it's really come into its own and I think season 3 has been its strongest yet.  Today, we have a new promo for the second half of the third season, which picks up directly where we left off with Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his prison crew fighting for their lives against The Governor (David Morrissey).  Things are heatin' up!

Take a look:

Readers of the comic have been on an extra set of pins and needles this season, due largely to the epic confrontations and brutal losses that transpire in the pages of the comic, leaving many wondering just how far the show would go in depicting the source material.  As one of those readers, I think they've taken it pretty damn far and I've been pleasantly surprised.  Although there are some major deviations, I have settled into the two different universes and appreciate them in their respective mediums.  There's enough new material and homage to make me a happy camper and season 3 has been solid thus far.  I expect it will stay that way.

AMC recently announced that the show was greenlit for a fourth season (duh) and that the current showrunner Glen Mazzara would be leaving at the end of the current one.  It's the second showrunner to exit the show and one has to wonder just want the diconnect is between that position, AMC, and writer Robert Kirkman.  No word on a replacement just yet, but at least we can expect to see the show continue on it's reign of terror for at least another year. 

The Walking Dead's second half of season 3 returns on February 10, 2013.

As a fan of the comics, I'm glad they changed it - for a couple of reasons. The changes keeps the story from being totally informed of everything ahead of time (I already have that with Game of Thrones). Also, a lot of events in the comic storyline are just too big too translate to the small screen. I think that's partially due to the budget, but also just credulity. Comics give you more freedom for suspension of disbelief. Part of me wishes this was on HBO, so the budget and quality of writing

I've also liked some of the changes they've made for the tv series. The comic is awesome and far more brutal, but I feel it can be because you don't connect with the characters like you do on the show. They seem more expendable in the comic for that reason. I don't really care who lives and dies in the comic, but I feel totally different for the tv counterparts. Just my personal feelings. Show's damn near perfect.

Is this not the promo that they showed at the end of the midseason finale?

almost perfect

ive enjoyed mostly all the changes so far. the expansion and additions are primo and i am tied to every one of these survivors. the only thing thats sticking in the back of my mind is how much milder the Governor is on the show. he seems more spit and polish than rack and ruin. i found the comic Gov to be one of the most hated villains in comic history. a nutter who had everyone fooled. i dont mind the TV version so much. just a hard man making hard choices, trying to keep it all together.
