The Walking Dead Season 3 – More Maggie

The Walking Dead AMC

Lauren Cohan promoted for more Zombie fun in Walking Dead

If you were a fan of the new Maggie Greene character introduced during Season 2 of AMC’s The Walking Dead then you’ll be glad to here we will be seeing a lot more of her when the zombie series returns this fall for Season 3. Not only will the actress playing Maggie, Lauren Cohan, be returning, but she’ll be back as a series regular, after spending much of the second season in a recurring role. It’s a promotion well deserved considering her recurring role saw her appearing in every episode except for one. The actress definitely put the time in to earn the pay increase and job security.

But is her future really as secure as it seems? TVLine may have reported the promotion, but it, nor I, can’t say for sure that she’ll live past the third season. Season 2 (spoilers) saw the deaths of two main characters, Dale and Shane, and while Shane’s death was an inevitability, Dale’s demise came as a real shock. Nobody is safe from harm in this series, something that sets it apart from other dramas. Cohan may have gotten the promotion simply because of the empty spots left by Jeffrey DeMunn and Jon Bernthal and somebody needed to take their place in the cast list.

Season 3, which will be split in half, with eight episodes airing in the fall and eight airing in the winter, will also see a couple of new faces in the cast. Popular characters from the comics, Michonne and The Governor, are being introduced and will play big parts in the season. This is without a doubt an exciting time for The Walking Dead, which may struggle with proper characterization at times, but always manages to put you on edge and make you genuinely fear for everyone’s lives. And with the dark turn Rick has taken in the second season finale, it’s only a matter of time before things really explode into chaos.

    err…read the comic. Shane died almost immediately after Rick found his family near Atlanta. He went crazy and flipped out only after a few days with Rick and Rick’s son shoots him in the neck. At the end of season 2 in the AMC TV series, they showed the prison. The group is supposed to go in there and clean it out and live there for a while. Dale was supposed to die long after the prison is overrun by a crazed Mayor from a survivalist town when they are in transit with a group heading to Washington DC for some bogus Top Secret mission. Maggie hasn’t died yet, and I have read up to issue 90. Which would be equivalent to like season 10 of the AMC show. Last I read, Maggie was watching the house in a town with a giant wall surrounding it with a community of ignorant elitists.

      I have no idea what you’re going on about. Have you watched the show? You know it’s different from the comic, right?
