I’m sure all you Dead-heads out there noticed the shift in casting for our fearless zombie apocalypse survivors when The Walking Dead season three finale ended.  Although all us dead fans were ready for an all-out war between Rickinator and the Governor, the writers of TWD had other things in mind.  They have decided to keep the Governor in play for season four thus upgrading David Morrissey to a cast regular.  Along with Morrissey the finale indicated the addition of Tyreese (Chad Coleman) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) to the prison camp cast.  If you recall, those two are part of that group that found their way through the back of the prison then ended up at Woodbury after Rick’s first Lori hallucination.

I reached out to actress Emily Kinney on the latest developments, and she had this to say:

Well I’m definitely excited to get started on Season 4.  Chad, Sonequa, and David are all just amazing actors and I’m excited they will be there next year too.  I don’t know anything that’s going to happen.  I can’t wait to find out.  Watching the show, Andrea was my favorite character so I’m really sad to see her go.

I agree Emily, it was very sad to see Andrea go!  She fought so hard to do the right thing and in the end had to take her own life.  Dislike.  On the bright side, The Daily Quirk and I congratulate Emily on surviving season three and will be anxiously awaiting the next one!
