The brilliant first novel told the story of the Governor and included a pretty huge twist which fans are sure to want to follow up on. Thankfully, this on does indeed pics right up from where the first novel left off. Talking about the follow up, Kirkman revealed: "It’s going to be a direct sequel to Rise of the Governor. We’re going to meet new characters as they come to Woodbury and see how Woodbury is founded, and how the Governor continues to grow as a character. It all takes place before we met the Governor in the comic book series, and there’s a lot more story to tell with that guy. We’ll also look at others—Lilly is going to be another focus. It’s going to be fun to explore those characters again." In the third season, the Governor will be played by British actor David Morrissey.
