Andrew Lincoln

Rick & Co. are going behind bars for The Walking Dead's third season.

As first revealed in the Season 2 finale, the survivors of the farm massacre will soon find a shelter at what appears to be an abandoned prison. "Our characters have been looking for a new safe haven after the farm is no more," executive producer Gale Anne Hurd explains. "They come across what we saw in the very last shot of Season 2, which is a prison setting." Adds star Andrew Lincoln: "It's a journey into the unknown and it's a huge, huge gamble, but it just shows how desperate they are."
