Don’t worry about spoilers during this post as we don’t actually know who it will be, but we are getting word from Michael Ausiello of TV Line that yet another series regular from The Walking Dead will be killed off during the upcoming season.
Here’s what Ausiello had to say regarding the scoop:
I can confirm that a series regular will become zombie kibble during Season 3, but whether that death takes place in the first half or second half I can’t say.
So we don’t know who it will be or when it will happen, but it apparently will happen at some point during the season. As to who will become “zombie kibble,” we can only speculate.
I think it’s pretty safe to assume that Rick and his family will be fine, that is, unless they’re going for something really shocking. I’m thinking it’s going to be one of the characters that we don’t see very much of like Daryl or T-Dog, the latter of which was given practically nothing to do throughout season 2. Then again, it could surprisingly be someone who’s around quite a bit like Glenn or Carol.
It’s rather surprising that they would want to kill someone off again already, especially given the bloodbath at the end of season 2, which saw the departure of a number of characters including Dale and Shane.
I’ve never read any of the comic books, so I don’t know if there’s someone specific that’s supposed to die or not, but I have learned that the makers of the show are merely using the comics as a guide, changing several things as they see fit. So even if someone is slated to die at this point in the story, it’s not necessarily set in stone that it will happen.
The new season will see the introduction of new characters like The Governor and Michonne, with the small band of survivors attempting to find safety from the endless hoards of walkers in a prison. You can catch season 3 on AMC when it premieres on October 14th.
Who do you think will meet their demise? Let us know in the comments!
