Easily one of my fave shows on TV right now, AMC's The Walking Dead, ended season 2 with a bang, in an episode that was directed by Ernest Dickerson, and that introduced a character many have been anxiously anticipating, Michonne, to be played by Danai Gurira when season 3 rolls around.

Easily one of my fave shows on TV right now, AMC's The Walking Dead, ended season 2 with a bang, in an episode that was directed by Ernest Dickerson, and that introduced a character many have been anxiously anticipating, Michonne, to be played by Danai Gurira when season 3 rolls around. 

Can't wait!

And there's maybe more of a reason to get excited about season 3, thanks to some revelations made by the show's producers and cast at a panel at the TV Academy in North Hollywood last night.

Here are some notable highlights, courtesy of THR:

- T-Dogg (IronE Singleton) will continue to trend on Twitter during every episode -- "in a good way," [Showrunner Glen] Mazzara said. Acknowledging that the fan-favorite character is considered to have been under-used this season, the showrunner explained T-Dogg has been intentionally quiet as he watches the insanity unfold around him.

"The good stuff is coming," according to [executive producer/comic creator Robert] Kirkman. "For comic fans, they know the good stuff is coming, the really intense stuff with Michonne, the Governor and Woodbury [prison] really defined the comic book series and we haven't even gotten to that stuff yet," he said. "So now that we're getting to that stuff in Season 3, it's really going to change the show quite a bit."

- The epic way in which Dale died in the comic series could still make its way onto the AMC drama -- for another character. In the long-running Image series, Dale winds up being bitten by a walker, kidnapped by cannibals and having his infected leg cut off and consumed before being set free and dying at Andrea's side. "There will be cases where something memorable like that will be displaced and given to somebody else," Kirkman said. "I'll hint that that actually happens in our first episode back in Season 3 -- there's something memorable that happened to a character in the comic is happening in the show in our first episode back and it's not the same character."

And there's more which you can read HERE.

But I figured these specific bits would get you most excited - especially the part about T-Dogg actually becoming more present and useful in the series; at least that's what is hinted at. If there's one complaint I heard a lot from viewers, it's been the under-utilization T-Dogg. Well, now maybe he'll finally be "unleashed," after being "intentionally quiet" as the Showrunner said.

And of course, there's the "really intense stuff with Michonne" to look forward to as well.

Season 3 can't come soon enough.
