San Diego Comic Con 2012 is in full swing and one of te the biggest shows in the past couple years once again held it’s panel in the huge Hall H auditorium to unveil and present the Season 3 Comic-Con trailer. The show I speak of is AMC’s zombie apocalypse tv series, The Walking Dead, which began airing in the fall of 2010.
The show has remained a powerhouse ratings grabber for AMC and only continues to have it’s fan-base increase. All this despite a series that has been like a rollercoaster ride in terms of quality through it’s 19-episodes over the first two seasons. Its fair to say that the show has captured the imagination of the general public even if it has lost some of the hardcore fans of the original comic book source material the show’s adapted from.
With a strong truncated Season 1 the show had a very uneven Season 2 which still ended pretty strong as we get two cliffhanger scenes that would dominate this upcoming third season: introduction of fan-favorite character Michonne and the reveal of prison location that became its own character in the comic book and should do the same for the third season.
Oh yeah, looks like this Comic-Con trailer has a Merle Dixon sighting.
