IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE SEASON FINALE OF THE WALKING DEAD STOP READING! MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD.
Just in case you’re still reading, I’m gonna fill up some space before I get to the news about which character is returning for season four of The Walking Dead.
What did you think about the season finale? Love it? Hate it? Let us know in the comments. Without getting into details, I thought it was a bit anti-climatic. The final few moments were beautiful and touching, but I just wish there had been more of a confrontation than what we got.
With that out of the way, let’s get to the news. If you’ve seen the season finale of The Walking Dead, than you know that the Governor is still out there…doing Governor-type stuff. So it should come as no surprise that the The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the Governor will return next season as a series regular.
So if you loved actor David Morrissey’s portrayal of the one-eyed madman, get ready for some more of that. Personally, I thought the Governor was a fantastic villain this season. He was a total asshole, but you could understand his descent into madness. However, this season finale should have been his swan song. Turning on his own people should have been his “Mad King” moment where someone finally ended his reign.
I worry that at this point they’re going to force his character to overstay his welcome and people will grow weary of his asshole antics. However, I’m open minded and excited to see if they can craft a story to justify keeping him around.
Let us know what you think in the comments.
