First Appearance of Michonne in AMC's The Walking Dead

One of the most anticipated characters in The Walking Dead series is Michonne, the samurai wielding bad-ass chick. Now, fans got a treat and an added feeling of anticipation when Michonne was unveiled during the final episode of season 2 last Sunday.

Yesterday, AMC announced the Danai Gurira will be portraying Michonne for season 3. Gurira is well known for her role as Jill in HBO’s Treme. Fans have high expectations for the Michonne character and AMC promises they don’t need to worry because Michonne from the comics will be the Michonne in the series.

Season three might become the shows best season because it has got a lot of the things fans of The Walking Dead are excited to see. We got the Governor, the prison and of course Michonne. Check out the photos of Michonne from the comics and the first look of her in the season 2 finale above courtesy of AMC.
