Could argue that slashing the budget and replacing the showrunner after only 6 episodes, and doing so to a hit show, would point to the AMC exec's not being all that different from their peers.

Something was working well, so their first instinct was to immediately screw with it and see if it could get by on less so the profit numbers go up a bit...

Re: 'Walking Dead' renewed for Season 3

gonna be tough to keep a zombie show going if they keep reducing the budget to the point where they can't afford zombie makeup for the extras...

Re: 'Walking Dead' renewed for Season 3

Rather than creating a thread titled specifically for Season 3 updates, as I did for season 2, I figured this thread would serve that purpose perfectly. To that end...


We have our first look at David Morrissey as the Governor of Woodbury!

Re: 'Walking Dead' renewed for Season 3

"The Governor in the show is definitely going to be The Governor in the comic," Kirkman told us following the Season 2 finale. "I think that he's definitely going to be a character that people love to hate and are absolutely entertained by, but also somewhat terrified of. He's definitely going to be a very important character and a very nuanced character. We are not going to be watering him down."
Holy shit....

I hope that's not true, and they have watered him down...

I'm more intrigued with how they will adapt the story given the death or lack of several key characters in the TV show.
And whether or not they will water down the brutal events of Volume 8 of the graphic novels.

He sure doesn't look like Danny Trejo! But more importantly, will we see the Games?

Re: 'Walking Dead' renewed for Season 3

I have no problem with this being the season 3 thread, but could we get a name change on it? Because the title refers to a specific event, the renewal of the show.

I vote no. Too hard to pull off the permanent aftermath realistically in a weekly TV series on basic cable.

Re: 'Walking Dead' renewed for Season 3

After reading the comments here, I hope they don't get carried away with this Governor character. The strength of this show so far has been its focus on adult characterization and interactions; I'd hate to see it lose itself down the D&G road by trying to impress us with over-the-top brutality.
