This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen footage for season three of AMC’s The Walking Dead, but this is the first official trailer for season three according to the network.

This season, we’ll have 16 episodes. The first eight will start airing one month from today on October 14th. The second half of the season will come back in February of 2013. It is a cruel wait, but its better than the one year wait they are making us endure for the finale of Breaking Bad…

Along with our intrepid gang of survivors, the new season will also introduce the Governor (David Morrissey) and Michonne (Danai Gurira).

“In the highly anticipated new season, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his fellow survivors continue to seek refuge in a desolate and post-apocalyptic world and soon discover that there are greater forces to fear than just the walking dead. The struggle to survive has never been so perilous.”
