The Walking Dead returns to finish out its third season this February. Fans of the AMC zombie series are anxious to find out what’s going to happen when the Governor finds Rick’s prison. With only eight more episodes left in the season, everything will lead to an explosive season finale.


In an interview with, actor Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Greene in the TV series, talks about what to expect when The Walking Dead returns to AMC. She teases how everything will come together for the mid-season premiere, and how things will change on the TV series. The Walking Dead gained the highest ratings in cable TV history, and the series’ writers are looking to attract a bigger audience with the second half of season three. Cohan reveals:

Season 3 already has broken all the cable records in the United States, and only continues to intensify into the season. Some of the stuff that’s happening is going to make television history – I’m not being funny, to read a lot of it, it gave me a visceral reaction. I can only say that it’s going to be an intense ride for the viewers.

This season of The Walking Dead has been the best since the series premiere in 2010. The series is moving at a quick pace and is not skimping on the blood and gore. Leading up to the mid-season hiatus, The Walking Dead built its narrative around the Governor and Woodbury, as well as Rick’s survivors in the prison. The second half of the season will explore the explosive confrontation between those two groups.

Don’t be shocked if more characters from the main cast die off. At this point, The Walking Dead is notorious for that! Cohan even teased, “You’re just never safe, you’re just never safe. I think [you should] really look to get to the dark in everybody’s hearts…”  It looks like The Walking Dead is going to get even more grim by season’s end.

The Walking Dead returns on February 10th on AMC.
