<i>The Walking Dead</i> Promo Spot Promises Fear in Season 3

Just what does Rick find in the newest teaser for The Walking Dead?

Based on what we know about Season 3, it could be a number of things: Considering that the newest season of AMC's hit drama takes us to the Prison and Woodbury, there are going to be plenty of new terrible revelations for Rick and company to discover. Regardless, hasn't he already learned his lesson not to open the door because there could be dead -- or worse -- inside? We're sure nothing good is in store for Rick in the events that happen after this clip ends.

The third season will follow Rick and the other survivors as they come across the West Georgia Correctional Facility -- aka the Prison -- and hope that it can be the safe haven from the undead that they've been hoping for. But things aren't as they appear, as it turns out that a greater threat looms in the form of the leader of the nearby town of Woodbury, The Governor.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, comic creator Robert Kirkman teased the direction that the new season is headed in.

“This season really is about setting up these two worlds and watching them come to a head and collide,” he said. “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.
