  1. I’m so excited about this! I’m not familiar with the actor but The Governor is going to bring tons of tension and a lot of action to the show. It’s odd how most things in the comic book seem unrealistic but they are really making it seem possible in the show

  2. I haven’t even seen the second season yet, but I loved the first, so I’m just excited in general haha. I’m glad it’s got three seasons.
