Earlier this week I had the pleasure of directing your attention to a series of The Walking Dead webisodes created by AMC, and now the first trailer for the third season of the hit series has arrived online via TV Guide.

I really can't say enough good things about this series, as it manages to provide an entirely original experience for fans of the comic book and newcomers alike. It's a fine line for the creators of the show to walk, and thus far they've done a masterful job of keeping things fresh and new for their audience, no matter how familiar they are with the ongoing comic.

Judging by the trailer (and all of the promotional material I've seen) the new season not only brings Rick Grimes and his fellow survivors to the prison, but also introduces one of the most notorious comic-book villains created in the last decade or so: The Governor.

Although AMC has taken a little flak for casting British actor David Morrissey as the infamous character, I'm withholding judgement until I see how he brings him to the screen. Of course, I might be a little biased due to my affinity for any and all actors who have appeared on Doctor Who. (Hey, at least I admit it.) Fellow Whovians will remember Morrissey as Jackson Lake, the "other" Doctor in the 2008 episode "The Next Doctor."

Personally, I'm most looking forward to seeing Danai Gurira as Michonne in the new season of The Walking Dead. I'm far from alone in counting her as one of my favorite characters in the series. Between her and the continued growth of Steven Yeun as Glenn, I'm itching to get back into that post-apocalyptic world and see where they take the story.
