Kirkman Goes Soft: The Walking Dead Season 4 Will See The Governor Return As A Regular

We get the official word following last night's underwhelming and anti-climactic finale to Season 3 of The Walking Dead that The Governor will not only be returning for Season 4, but will be a series regular.

THR reports that David Morrissey is returning for The Walking Dead Season 4 after originally being said to be signed on for a one season appearance.

I won't go into spoilers for last night's episode, but I said that The Walking Dead essentially dug their own crave by what happened last night.

Obviously, The Governor survived and with him returning to Season 4 are we to guess that he recruits a new band of men to take on Rick and co.? 


Not only that, but the same storyline seems to be playing out for two seasons and greatly decompressed.

I guess AMC may have got to the show's comic book creator, Robert Kirkman.

In the comics it's known that "nobody is safe," but it seems far from that as of late regarding the TV show.

Executive Producer Gale Anne Hurd mentioned the following to THR.

"Do I want to keep David Morrissey? Yes! Do we? I can't tell you. 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."
