The prison was briefly glimpsed at the end of last season’s Walking Dead, but it will serve as a major ‘character’ in the upcoming third chapter. Today, the first official images of the deadly structure have hit the web to provide a taste of what’s in store.
The first of two images released via EW.com pit the survivors inside prison grounds adopting a defensive position, recently popularized by The Avengers movie, surrounded by walkers. The second photo pictures a machete-wielding Maggie (Lauren Cohan) about to slice herself a piece of the undead. Check out both images below:
Showrunner Glen Mazzara reiterates his excitement over the prison, telling EW:
“I’m incredibly proud of the prison. It’s a huge sense of scale and magnitude I haven’t seen on any other show as far as construction. What’s important to us is the prison itself is now a character in the show. It’s a haunted house, it’s scary, it’s frightening, and there are parts of the prison that are always terrifying, that are always inaccessible to our group.”
