‘The Walking Dead’ Season 4: David Morrissey’s Governor Returns as Series Regular

The Walking Dead Season 4 David Morrissey Governor Series Regular
AMC

For as much as last night’s ‘The Walking Dead‘ season 3 finale “Welcome to the Tombs” polarized viewers, one thing was left for certain by hour’s end. Not only were David Morrissey’s Governor and a clutch of his men still alive, but it seemed all-but-certain the psychotic leader would one day return for revenge on Rick Grimes, and the rest of those who deserted Woodbury. Now, as we begin the long wait toward ‘The Walking Dead’ season 4, we’ve learned just how the Governor will return, so find out the first official details of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 4 inside!

‘The Walking Dead’ has sometimes kept a slow burn, not returning characters such as Merle (Michael Rooker) or Morgan (Lennie James) for seasons at a time, but fans won’t have to wait quite so long to see Davide Morrissey’s Governor (aka Phillip Blake) when ‘The Walking Dead’ picks up for season 4 this fall. The Hollywood Reporter confirms today that the character will indeed return next season, signing Morrissey as a series regular once more.

Morrissey himself had originally signed for a single season, as fans of the original Robert Kirkman comic well know that the character dies in the siege of the prison, which ultimately saw Rick and his group leaving the facility at a high cost to their own. It isn’t yet known exactly how the Governor or his men will return, but suffice to say AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ has certainly taken its own route, bringing in the remainder of the Woodbury survivors to live at the prison.

Well, what say you? Are you excited to learn that the Governor will return right away for ‘The Walking Dead’ season 4, or would you have preferred the character been killed off? What did you think of last night’s finale? Sound off in the comments, and watch a SPOILER-filled, behind-the-scenes look at the season 3 finale below.
