We told ya! Michael Rooker returns as Merle Dixon for season 3 of THE WALKING DEAD

Recently we tweeted that Michael Rooker would be returning to season 3 of AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead as Merle Dixon. Now we can bring you the official word on the subject.

We chatted with Michael Rooker recently and he had this to say about coming back to The Walking Dead.

“I can’t say much about it, well actually I can but I choose not to right now. I am coming back for the third season but I can’t say in what capacity it will be in. I start back next year sometime. I am very looking forward to revisiting the character and giving the fans more Merle”.

This gets us thinking. How will he portray Merle? Will it be in a dream sequence or will the character actually be back in the mix 100%? We do not know but our friends over at The Daily Dead reports this was what Rooker said during Wonder-Con.

“While Rooker didn’t go into much more detail, he did mention that he lost 20 lbs for the role.”

In any case we are glad to see that Mr. Badass himself, Michael Rooker, will be russiling up some drama for the third season of The Walking Dead.
