Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the four covers for this week’s issue featuring some of the stars of AMC’s The Walking Dead: Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Danai Gurira as Michonne (with her walkers in tow), David Morrissey as the Governor, and Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker as brothers Daryl and Merle Dixon.
The issue boasts a sneak peek at the third season, which finds Rick and the other refugees from the Greene farm hoping to transform the West Georgia Correctional Facility — aka the Prison — into a safe haven, only to discover the greatest threat may not come from the zombies but rather from the nearby town of Woodbury.
“This season really is about setting up these two worlds and watching them come to a head and collide,” executive producer Robert Kirkman tells the magazine. “And you know that there are going to be some pretty explosive encounters between Rick and the Governor. This season is going to be about getting to know these two characters, and then waiting for their eventual confrontation that could destroy everything.”
The Walking Dead returns for its 16-episode third season on Oct. 14.
