We're now less than a month away from the premiere of The Walking Dead Season 3, so expect plenty of content to roll in from now until the mid-season break. Today, we have a look at new walker photos and footage from a recently released behind-the-scenes featurette.

“AMC announced… the premiere of The Walking Dead Season 3 on Sun., Oct. 14 at 9/8c. As previously announced, the series’ third season will consist of 16 episodes. Season 3 will also air in two-parts with the first eight hours kicking off Oct. 14 and returning Feb. 2013 with the final eight episodes. Following The Walking Dead will be the season premieres of AMC’s unscripted series Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick (Nerdist), at 11/10c and Comic Book Men at 11:30/10:30c. Season 2 of both series consists of 16 half-hour episodes. Internationally, The Walking Dead will return to audiences in 120+ FOX International Channels (FIC) markets the week of Oct. 15 as part of FIC continued commitment to broadcast the series near date-and-date globally."
