Howdy, Masterminds! We’ve got some awesome The Walking Dead Season Three updates for you. AMC have released a bunch of new promo photos from the upcoming season. If we were excited for the new season before, we’re positively giddy now. Check out the newest promo shots here!
There are new characters and old, and one very spoilery, very awesome surprise. Here be major spoilers, so click through to AMC’s website at your own risk! (For those of you who are brave enough to click through, please don't ruin the surprise for other fans who are trying to keep things spoiler-free!)
Also, in celebration for the upcoming season, AMC is doing a Season Three Preview Weekend, kicking off at 11:30/10:30c on Saturday, July 7th. There will be a marathon of The Walking Dead Seasons 1 and 2, with behind the scenes footage and sneak peaks of Season Three throughout.
This epic zombie love fest concludes at 8/9c on the 8th, with a special episode of Talking Dead. There will be several surprise guests, interviews with cast members, details on The Walking Dead at this year’s San Diego Comic Con and the chance to get a first look at some of the sets from the upcoming season. This very special edition of Talking Dead concludes with an episode of The Walking Dead created just for fans of the original graphic novels.
Speaking of Comic Con, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has teamed up with Hyundai to create the first Walking Dead themed car, affectionately referred to as the “Zombie Survival Machine”. The car will make its debut at this year's Comic Con (Kinda makes Daryl’s zombie ear necklace look a little less impressive, huh?).
If all of this wasn’t enough zombie-themed awesome for you Walking Dead enthusiasts, AMC’s Watch To Win Sweepstakes is giving one lucky viewer the prize of a lifetime: a trip to Atlanta and a walk-on (stumble-on?) role as a zombie in an upcoming episode. A code will be shown at some point during the special edition of Talking Dead, so keep those pencils at the ready (They double as weapons in a zombie emergency).
If you love the idea of this, but can’t quite manage an entire The Walking Dead marathon weekend, we’ve got you covered! We’ll be recapping all of the Season Three sneak peaks and behind the scenes footage revealed during the Season Three Weekend Preview, reviewing the special ‘for the graphic novel fans’ episode of The Walking Dead, and doing an in-depth recap of the special episode of Talking Dead. Whew! It’s going to be bloody fantastic, and we hope you’ll check it out.
