the walking deadFight the dead. Fear the living ... tonight!!! Season 3 of The Walking Dead premieres tonight! Are you ready? Are you SURE? Because if what the show's stars are saying is any indication, this is gonna be one hell of a season. I know, Season 2 was a teeny bit on the slow side. But I think it was necessary, you know? I mean, we needed to feel the same way the characters were feeling -- sick and tired of running from zombies and in desperate need of a freakin' nap!

But according to Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), the group ain't so sleepy this time around ...

"This season we pretty much hit the ground running," says Lincoln.

Here's what a few of the other cast members have to say:

Laurie Holden, who plays Andrea, promises "more chaos, more madness, more grief ... more violence!" Danai Gurira (new character Michonne) says it's going to be "an amazing ride."

Norman Reedus (Daryl), says everybody's gonna be "more badass and more pissed off."

And Sarah Wayne Calies (Lori) says Season 3 is more "people vs. people than people vs. walkers," (oh, and by the by her relationship with Rick is "worse than ever," says Lincoln).

Hmm, even with Shane gone? Interesting. Good thing we don't have to wait too long to find out what the stars are talking about!!

What are you expecting from Season 3 of The Walking Dead?
