Darker. Harder. Faster. Deeper. No it’s not a new Daft Punk song, it’s how Walking Dead Star Andrew Lincoln describes the hit zombie drama’s third season, in a new behind the scenes featurette from AMC.

When we last saw Rick and the gang they were searching for a new safe haven following the bloodbath at Hershel’s farm. As the camera panned away from the angry little group taking shelter by the side of a road, a large prison was revealed, looming rather ominously in the distance. Just two days into shooting the show’s third season, it looks like Rick and the others have arrived.

“It’s a journey into the unknown,‘ says Lincoln. “It’s a huge huge gamble but it just shows how desperate they are.

But what awaits Rick and co.? At least three new characters, (‘We have the introduction of new characters – some that have been announced and some that have not,” says Andrea’s Laurie Holden) blossoming love, a bloodbath and of course David Morrissey’s Governor.

Also new to the season is Danai Gurira who made her spectacular debut in the season finale as the sword-wielding Michonne.

The Walking Dead returns to screens this October.

    Thanks Jennifer, love the show and cannot wait for it to return! Looks like it will be a real thrill ride. One little correction, it’s not their sophomore season (that would have been season 2). I guess it’s their junior season although I never heard that term used before!
