'The Walking Dead' Season 3 Netflix premier will be sometime in Oct.
The new season is expected to begin airing during that month and the previous season normally hits Netflix when the new one premiers. It could even be released earlier as Season 3 premiered last Oct. and Season 2 hit Netflix on Sept. 30.
A trailer for the upcoming season of 'The Walking Dead' premiered at this year's Comic Con. It shows most of the cast making their return including Andrew Lincoln as Rick, Danai Gurira as Michonne, and Lauren Cohan as Maggie.
Gurira hinted at the possibility of a zombie baby making an appearance in this new season.
"There's a little hint of that in the premiere," she said in a recent interview. The show's executive producer Gregory Nicotero said the series almost had one appear in the third season when Daryl and Maggie went searching for baby formula at a day-care center.
Robert Kirkman, another executive producer on 'The Walking Dead' also commented on the zombie infant.
"It'll be something different from the baby who was seen in [2004's] 'Dawn of the Dead' remake, which was horrific and done so well," he said. "There's still room for us to do something different and cool."
Chad Coleman, who plays Tyreese in the series, will have a more prominent role this season, becoming one of the main characters and will have his name added to the opening credits. Fans will also get to see more of Sonequa Martin-Green, who plays his sister Sasha, and Emily Kinney, who has played Beth since Season 2 of the show, as they will also be bumped up to credited status.
Kinney's character was introduced in the second season as one of Hershel's daughters, and Coleman and Martin-Green made their debut in Season 3. Coleman's character Tyreese has a prominent role in the comic book the series is based on. Martin-Green's character was invented for the TV series. The actress also has a recurring role on "Once Upon a Time."
