There's less than a week left until "The Walking Dead" returns on AMC, and though the fates of the residents of Woodbury and the Prison are uncertain, we now know at least one thing for fact: Merle lives long enough to bash a zombie's face in.
Entertainment Weekly has debuted three new images from the upcoming midseason premiere, and it looks like Merle survives his fight with Daryl long enough to face off against some walkers. That's good for us, because we want to see what adventures the two brothers get up to now that they've been reunited after so long.
Tyreese isn't the only major new addition to the "Walking Dead" TV universe. According to showrunner Glen Mazzara, there's at least one more big-name character from Robert Kirkman's comics premiering in the second half of season three.
"Our comic book fans will still be excited and delighted to see how the story unfolds and how we tell the story. We do have a lot of new surprising material. There’s still a major character to appear in the back half, which is very exciting," the producer told EW in a new interview. But according to Mazzara, we won't be seeing too many other new characters introduced in the remainder of season three.
Breaking into new groups is always awkward. You never know if an innocent, off-handed comment is going to offend someone, or if there's a sensitive issue you should avoid in conversation.
Needless to say, the prison-survivors of "The Walking Dead" have a lot of sensitive issues to avoid.
A brand new clip from next Sunday's midseason premiere of "Walking Dead" has come online, and it's 100% full of awkwardness. Prepare to feel incredibly uncomfortable in the video below.
John Layman, writer and co-creator of Image Comics' incredible "Chew," tweeted out some disappointing news for fans of the food-centric comic book series: the planned Showtime adaptation won't be going forward after all.
The man's words speak for themselves:
Killing zombies is a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it — and that somebody is none other than Daryl Dixon.
"Walking Dead" star Norman Reedus graced the Super Bowl with his brooding presence in a commercial for Time Warner that sees the flesh-eating menace become a domestic nightmare. Good thing for home-owners and cable-watchers everywhere that Daryl's around to keep you safe.

FROM MTV GEEK:
Is there not enough Michonne in your life? Todd McFarlane and Robert Kirkman feel the same way, which is why the two comic book icons teamed together for a monstrously impressive statue of Michonne from "The Walking Dead."
Head to MTV Geek for Kirkman and McFarlane's thoughts on the statue!
The Governor and Rick will come face-to-face in the second half of "The Walking Dead" season three. This is something we've already seen teased. But according to star David Morrissey, the epic showdown isn't going to happen the way fans might expect.
"What I’ve liked about the season so far is that it’s full of surprises,” Morrissey told SFX magazine. "Obviously the stars might be aligned for Rick and the Governor to have some sort of meeting, but maybe the show will shoot that in a very surprising way. I think it’s not going to give you what you want in the way that you want it, and I think that’s what I’ve enjoyed in the second half of the season."
AMC has named Scott Gimple as "The Walking Dead's" new showrunner, but many have been left wondering why Glen Mazzara, who has done such a great job with season three, left before the season was completed. Mazzara has now come out to tell his side of the story.
“I was sort of the hired gun coming in to support the creator of the show, and through odd circumstances I ended up becoming showrunner," Mazzara said at NATPE, via The Hollywood Reporter. "When you’re the creator, you can say, 'This is what the show is.' I didn’t create the show. I didn’t create the comic book, so I’m just glad I was able to contribute."
A week before "The Walking Dead" is set to return to AMC, we'll be treated to an exciting TV spot of the show during the Super Bowl.
Time Warner Cable has revealed that it has secured a 30-second TV spot featuring "The Walking Dead" star Norman Reedus to promote the hit series. As Super Bowl real estate is insanely pricy, we hope that this news means that the promo will be a step beyond what we've seen in the past. This is the second year that Time Warner Cable has run a "The Walking Dead" teaser during the Super Bowl.
War is coming to the Prison in the second half of "The Walking Dead's" third season, and Rick Grimes was the one to bring it.
The latest trailer for the February 10 return of AMC's hit zombie series promises that Rick and the Governor will come face to face in the coming episodes. In fact, it does more than promise it: The trailer shows them meeting for what seems like the first time. "We have a lot to talk about," the Governor tells Rick in the scene.
