The Walking Dead's second season may not be over yet, but there is some good news out about season 3 already. The Governor has been cast, and he'll be a series regular.
Walking Dead Season 3 Spoilers
So the second season is still airing, and it's still uncertain who's even going to make it to season 3. However, that doesn't mean they can't look ahead, and looking ahead is exactly what they're doing with the latest casting news. There are still plenty of questions remaining that need answers, but now there's also something pretty exciting to look forward to after the remaining four season 2 episodes.
According to Deadline, a character that many have been hoping would be brought in soon is going to be appearing in the third season, and he will be a series regular. David Morrissey is set to play The Governor, "the leader of Woodbury, a small settlement of survivors, and [someone who] becomes the chief antagonist for The Walking Dead's lead Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group." This news means it's time to get ready for even more conflict, drama, and action, and you have to wonder who will still be alive when The Governor shows up.
Will it play out at all like it did in the graphic novels? Obviously there have been some changes for the television series, but some things have also stayed the same. Will that be the case for the Governor? Will fans of the graphic novels be happy with what they do with the character for the AMC drama? With all the hype that has been surrounding the wait for this character's introduction, there could be some pretty high expectations to meet, so hopefully they do just that when they introduce him.
Are you looking forward to seeing The Governor in The Walking Dead season 3? What do you think of their casting choice?
