First Look At David Morrissey As The Walking Dead's Governor
Are you ready for the Rise of the Governor? Some minor spoilers follow.

the walking dead the governor david morriseyWe've already gotten our first glimpse at Danai Gurira as Michonne in AMC's The Walking Dead season 3. Now, TV Guide has released the first promotional photo of English actor David Morrissey as Brian Blake, aka "The Governor" of Woodbury.

In the comics, Blake put together a group of dozens of survivors and created a settlement in the town of Woodbury, Georgia. Declaring himself "The Governor", Blake rose to power and ruled with an iron fist. Fans know that Blake's insanity led to some of the best stories for the series, which has made his arrival on the show even more exciting.

"The Governor in the show is definitely going to be The Governor in the comic," series creator Robert Kirkman said. "I think that he's definitely going to be a character that people love to hate and are absolutely entertained by, but also somewhat terrified of. He's definitely going to be a very important character and a very nuanced character. We are not going to be watering him down."

So while he may not look like the Governor of the comics in the photo, it sounds like Kirkman and co. have some interesting plans for the character in the third season that should still please fans.

The show's third season premieres this Fall on AMC.
