The Governor Will Return to 'The Walking Dead' Season 4


The Governor Will Return to 'The Walking Dead' Season 4


David Morrissey, who initially signed for one season, will reportedly be upped to series regular in the next installment.

The tension between Rick and the Governor will likely continue in the fourth season of "The Walking Dead". According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Morrissey has agreed to reprise his role as the villainous leader in Woodbury and will be upped to a series regular in the forthcoming chapter.

The British actor initially only signed on for a one-season role as his character died in the comic book after he led Woodbury into battle with Rick Grimes' gang at the prison. However, [SPOILER ALERT!] Rick and co. managed to avoid the showdown and the villainous character is still alive at the end of the third season finale.

"Do I want to keep David Morrissey? Yes! Do we? I can't tell you," executive producer Gale Anne Hurd recently talked about the Governor's fate on the show. "There are so many colors to his performance. In the comics, he's pretty one-note, but here, he's got so much more humanity."

Andrea, on the other hand, wasn't as lucky as the Governor. She was killed by the Governor in the March 31 outing. Admitting that her character's death "was rather unexpected," Laurie Holden believed the decision to kill off Andrea was "story-driven. It does propel the story forward."

She added, "I'd like to think Andrea's death will have meaning. That what she stood for and believed in will continue to resonate in the hearts and minds of the people she left behind, because we all learn and grow from one another. I do love that the finale ended [with a shot of] a cross, because I feel that it's a time for new beginnings and a spiritual awakening. Let the healing begin."

Andrea is the latest character to be killed off in "The Walking Dead" season 3. Michael Rooker's Merle and Dallas Roberts' Milton also met the demise in the same season.

"The Walking Dead" is expected to return with the fourth season in October.
