Ernest Dickerson Directing "The Walking Dead" Season 3 Premiere + Cast/Crew Tease New Character Intros

Dania Michonne

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

Can't wait!

Further, speaking at a Hollywood TV Academy event soon after the season ended, the show's producers and cast shared some other season 3 expectations including the "unleashing" of T-Dogg (IronE Singleton), and some "really intense stuff with Michonne."

In the new behind-the-scenes video released today, and embedded below, the series cast and crew, on set shooting season 3, talk further about what to expect next season. One revelation that was music to my ears was that Ernest Dickerson is directing the season 3 premiere epiosde! Fitting I suppose, after season explosive 2's finale, which he directed.

Also worth noting from the video is the announcement from co-star Laurie Holden that new characters will be introduced (we know that), adding that while some of those new characters have been announced, others have not been revealed. So those who aren't too thrilled by the news that T-Dogg will be more present and useful in the series, you just may get your wish - one of those yet-to-be-announced new characters to be introduced in season 3 could be Tyreese, who many of you have been longing for.

But expect a "harder, darker, faster, deeper. It's incredibly dangerous, and it's thrilling" season 3, kicking off with what should be an even more explosive season premiere directing by Dickerson.

    I'm wondering if we will ever find out what happened to the man & his son who befriended Rick in the first season? Rick tried the walkie-talkie communication but eventually gave up so I'm dyin 2 know if they made it.

    In the graphic novel, the father makes it and he and Rick find each other. He becomes a companion for Michonne. The son doesn't make it. Television may have a different interpretation of events.

    I am not that much into graphic novels. However from the few I read they, are more progressive form of popular American entertainment. When it comes to imagery of graphic novels are eons ahead of television film and music when comes to the portrayal of comes to roles of men, women, race, age and the like. The last 30 or some odd years of American graphic novels have been very thought provoking. I hope that American television shows pull from more graphic novels. Although I am very squeamish, I have been chiming into the Walking Dead. I will cover my eyes and watch it for the 3rd season.

    So excited for TWD Season 3 and happy to see all these brown faces working. Expect more since we're in ATL both dead and living!

    I always thought Ernest Dickerson was a capable director, but his work on The Walking Dead Season 2 Finale was the best gotdamn work I've seen in his career! Truly fantastic! I hope he gets some type of industry recognition.
