Robert Kirkman drops some info on The Walking Dead season 3

With filming already underway for the third season of AMC's hit series THE WALKING DEAD, it's about time for info to start trickling out. And what do you know - AMC published a short but fairly informative interview with the original comic book's creator and the show's co-producer Robert Kirkman. Read on below to learn what the man had to say...

...on reconstructing the prison from the comic for the show:

They've taken a lot of what you see in the comic book series and brought it to life in ways that I didn't think possible. This is going to be one of the most impressive looking things that's ever been put together for a show.

...on human characters replacing zombies as the story's true villains:

The plan was always to evolve naturally into a place where the zombies essentially become a manageable threat. You know the rules. You know how to deal with them. To a certain extent they become something to not really be scared of unless you mess up. Humans, however, do not follow any rules and will always do something that surprises you and are capable of doing things far worse than trying to eat you...We're definitely going to be seeing a lot of horrible things.

...on David Morrissey as the Governor:

I'm actually waiting desperately to see him dressed up in Governor mode and walking the streets of Woodbury. I think he's going to be absolutely great playing against Andrew Lincoln.

...on Danai Gurira as Michonne:

There's been quite a bit of sword training going on and [Danai] is doing an amazing job. She's going to be do all of the hard character stuff and drama that The Walking Dead is known for, but she has tremendous physical capability and the sword training that I've seen is absolutely amazing. I can't wait to see her hack up some zombies. (...) She's using a sword that we specially designed for the show...The origins of the sword will be revealed on the show.

While it's understandable for the creator to hype up his own show, I have to say season 3 is shaping up to be way more interesting than the second, mostly due to the addition of the more over the top characters, like Michonne and the Governor. We'll have to wait and see how it all pans out, but I'm sure the cast and crew will keep us posted in the meantime.
