The Walking Dead returns this October for Season 3, which brings our zombie apocalypse survivors into a new setting that is a favorite amongst fans of the comic book. Yes, Sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his followers will soon be going to The Prison, as evident in these latest photos from The Season Three Premiere. Check it out as Grimes, along with Maggie (Lauren Cohan), T-Dog (IronE Singleton), and Glenn (Steven Yeun), fend off a pack of brain-hungry prison zombies, followed by an action shot of Maggie stepping up her zombie killing skills with a little bit of help from the old farm kitchen.
Showrunner Glen Mazzara had this to say about the new Prison setting.
"I'm incredibly proud of the prison. 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."
