Walking Dead producer Explains why we haven’t seen the Governor

All Walking Dead fans been wondering why we haven’t seen the Governor (David Morrissey) much this season?

Turns out the producers got a little “sick” of him last year.

Here’s how he explained it to The Hollywood Reporter:

“We’ve just devoted an entire season to the conflict of The Governor and [new showrunner] Scott Gimple came in and was like, ‘You know what? I’m sick of The Governor.’ He actually said that. It’s not that we don’t like that character; it’s just that we needed to give that character a break. Going right back into that would seem like more retread of season three and that’s the thing we don’t want to do…

The Governor is going to see quite a leap in who he is and what his motives are. The Governor that we saw at the end of season three was this homicidal maniac that lost control of his town and we haven’t seen him for a long time. He’s been stewing and we may be seeing a very different Governor when we finally do catch up to him. We like to keep people guessing and he definitely will return this season. Just when you think things are getting to a breaking point, that’s when The Governor layer will be thrown in to make things that much more deadly and dangerous. It’s going to be a really big, memorable moment in the show.”

Okay, that actually makes sense.

I think we will see him on the next episode of The Walking Dead because they do give a teaser in the end of the Episode 5.

Did you miss the Governor?
