In addition, Anchor Bay proudly announces that, in response to overwhelming fan response to last year's Season 2 limited edition "zombie head" packaging, The Walking Dead: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray will be available in a Limited Edition "zombie head tank" package (water not included!) specially created once again by McFarlane Toys.

Based on the hugely popular graphic novels by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead: The Complete Third Season continues to draw in record audiences. The Walking Dead Season 3 follows the weary group of survivors led by police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), as they take refuge in a prison and attempt to set up a permanent camp. But while invading zombies are an ever-present danger, they must also battle the living, not only in the form of abandoned prisoners, but also the sadistic "Governor" (David Morrissey) and his followers. New characters introduced this season include Danai Gurira as "Michonne," with her two "zombie pets" in tow, and Dallas Roberts (Shadow People) as the Governor's lieutenant Milton, as well as the return of Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker).

The Walking Dead: The Complete Third Season cast also includes Laurie Holden, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, IronE Singleton, Chandler Riggs, Scott Wilson and Melissa Suzanne McBride.

Season 4 of The Walking Dead premieres on AMC this October.
