We all thought The Governor would die at the end of season three of The Walking Dead – we just did. Then he went berserk and killed a load of people – people, not zombies – and disappeared in a big scary truck. He’s not dead, and now we can’t wait for his return in season 4.

But there’s a caveat to all this; you see, when we find out about actors getting work in real life, we, as humans, do sums in our little heads – the cogs start turning and then someone goes, ‘hang on?’ David Morrissey is leading a new pilot for AMC’s Line of Sight, so, doesn’t that mean the Governor is going to be killed off early doors?

Well, according to a statement released to the ever-reliable Deadline.com, he won’t. “We are huge fans of David Morrissey and are glad he’ll be doing double duty for AMC viewers through his work on The Walking Dead and our pilot for Line Of Sight, both of which are produced in Atlanta,” said the network.

Hear that Governor fans? Morrissey will be multitasking, meaning Rick and he can lock horns once again as season four of the zombie drama hits screens this October. It’s been a while since we’ve seen the inhabitants of cellblock C, and given all the new arrivals, we expect the death toll to rise.

Check out this ridiculously long trailer for The Walking Dead, kicking off with – who else? – Daryl, a real fans’ favourite. The new season starts in October to ease off your Breaking Bad-ending blues.
