AMC announced on Friday that the series “The Walking Dead” has a date with viewers.

The program is slated to return for season three on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 9 p.m. with a 16-episode run that will be split into two parts. The second eight episodes will begin on February 2013.

In addition, the October premiere will be followed by the second season of the after-show “Talking Dead” at 11 p.m. along with the unscripted series “Comic Book Men.”

Of course, when we last left the survivors, Hershel’s farm was overrun by zombies. Season three looks to feature the crew calling a prison their new home and the introduction of The Governor, who will be played by David Morrissey.
