For those that are caught up on the series we know the Prison will play a factor in the third season of The Walking Dead. Not only is it full of all sorts of surprises, but it gives way to the Governor storyline which to this day is the most vicious arc in the comic. Sounds like while the prison will certainly be another set piece from the comic being used for the tv show, there might be a few different wrinkles in store….
From Showrunner Glen Mazzara:
“I’m incredibly proud of the prison,” says showrunner Glen Mazzara. “I think our crew has done a great job. It’s a huge sense of scale and magnitude I haven’t seen on any other show as far as construction. What’s important to us is, the prison itself is now a character in the show. It’s a haunted house, it’s scary, it’s frightening, and there are parts of the prison that are always terrifying, that are always inaccessible to our group. It’s not necessarily the blessing that the prison in the comic book turned out to be.”
The Walking Dead season 3 returns right around Halloween time in October! I can’t wait!
