The fall is upon us and that means that television is returning back to normal with new episodes of our favorite shows gracing the airwaves to provide fuel for our internet rants about how much we love or hate what these showrunners are delivering to us. As is the custom, we’re being relentlessly teased with new footage, stills, and trailers to further hype up a show’s return, and today we get a brand new trailer for season three of AMC’s hit show ‘The Walking Dead’.

Here’s the new trailer of the upcoming season, followed by the official synopsis, courtesy of Comic Book Movie:

In the highly anticipated new season, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his fellow survivors continue to seek refuge in a desolate and post-apocalyptic world and soon discover that there are greater forces to fear than just the walking dead. The struggle to survive has never been so perilous.

Based on the critically acclaimed comic series by Robert Kirmman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, the upcoming season will contain 16 episodes, with the first 8 starting on October 14th at 9/8c and the next 8 returning in February. Additionally, the gang will encounter fan-favorite characters Michonne and The Governor, played by Danai Guira and David Morissey respectively, as well as the return of Michael Rooker’s Merle Dixon, brother to Norman Reedus’ Daryl who was last seen way back in season one.

Also, thanks to Yahoo (via CBM), we have these brand new images to share with the world:
