The Governor lives! Well, sort of. Yes, you saw him as a ghostly apparition in Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead, but the next time you see actor David Morrissey, the man who played the nefarious villain, he'll most certainly be real.

Morrissey has signed on to Extant, CBS' sci-fi series about robot kids and alien babies (we think, we're still not sure after watching the messy first season), Variety reports. He'll play the head of a security team that has a history with Molly (Halle Berry) in a recurring role. There is no word on whether or not he'll have an eyepatch, though.

Morrissey is the second big name in the genre scene to join Season 2 of Extant. Jeffrey Dean Morgan of Supernatural and The Watchmen fame was booked on Extant as a series regular in late January.
