As to what to expect from the upcoming season, showrunner Glen Mazzara had this to say:
Iâ€™m incredibly proud of the prison. I think our crew has done a great job. Itâ€™s a huge sense of scale and magnitude I havenâ€™t seen on any other show as far as construction. Whatâ€™s important to us is the prison itself is now a character in the show. Itâ€™s a haunted house, itâ€™s scary, itâ€™s frightening, and there are parts of the prison that are always terrifying, that are always inaccessible to our group. Itâ€™s not necessarily the blessing that the prison in the comic book turned out to be.
Season 3 of â€śThe Walking Deadâ€ť starts up again this October.
