I am looking forward to seeing what happens in season 3. I thought season 2 was a little mixed. I found it to be a little show once they got to the farm and stayed there. Honestly, I was about to give up on it, but I gave it another chance, and I thought it really picked up during the last half of the season.

I haven’t read the comic book series, but I’m intrigued by the glimpses I’ve seen of the prison and Michonne (Danai Gurira). I’m looking forward to see where they go with Rick (Andrew Lincoln) attempting to take control of the group. And I am especially looking forward to the return of Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker). It will be interesting to see how Daryl (Norman Reedus) reacts to his brother now that he has developed relationships with the group, particularly Rick and Carol (Melissa McBride).

Season 3 begins in October.
