Walking Dead Season 3 – On The Governor, Michonne, and Prison
Before you know it, The Walking Dead Season 3 will be upon us and it would be best for all of us if we knew what was coming in the months ahead. Specifically, how will the show play out with the new factors being introduced, such as Michonne, the Governor, and the prison setting? Should we be expecting a storyline close to whats in the comic books or something radically different? Thankfully, showrunner Greg Mazzara is not afraid to talk about the production of the show and what exactly is being done to create the best zombie series imaginable. But beware: there are some spoilers for the upcoming third season, so go no further if you wish not to know.
When asked by The Wrap if the series could possibly end – and this is hypothetically years down the road – with the survivors finding a safe haven to live out the rest of their lives peacefully, Mazzara answered with a pretty emphatic “No.” Even this prison, which will be a major setting through out Season 3, will be anything but safe. It will be a struggle to live in this unknown location, which Mazzara equates to living in a shark cage. That’s not a bad way to describe it.
As for Michonne and the Governor – this pair are two of the most popular characters from the comic book – they will certainly contain parts of their comic selves, but they will have been adapted to the show’s “alternate universe.” In this way, the series can follow similar plotlines borrowed from the comic while remaining surprising. By simply using the comic as a template, a whole mountain of possibilities opens up for the writers to explore, including fleshing out the Governor, making him a more complex and multi-layered character. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long for his introduction. He’ll make his appearance in a surprising way, but you’ll be able to feel it coming.
Mazzara took over the role of showrunner when Frank Darabont was let go from AMC. Since taking the job, The Walking Dead has seen a notable improvement, tearing through plot much faster then when Darabont was in charge. Hopefully the trend continues in Season 3.
