If you were hoping to see a beloved character found within the pages of The Walking Dead this season, well, we have some bad news. Michonne, the samurai sword-wielding survivor of the zombie apocalypse Rick and his company meeting on their journey, is being saved for “future seasons,” says one of the show’s producers.
Gale Anne Hurd, an executive producer on the series, was recently interviewed at the Watercooler. When asked about the strengths of the female characters in the comic book versus the strengths demonstrated on the show, Hurd commented:
We’ve always known Michonne was on the way. It was just a matter of when. Next season’s looking good perhaps. AMC just ordered up a 16-episode third season.
