The Governor will definitely be back in a big way next season on "The Walking Dead."
AMC confirmed to AccessHollywood.com that British actor David Morrissey, who plays the sociopathic leader (who is likely licking his wounds following his disastrous attempt at taking down the prison group on Sunday's Season 3 finale of "The Walking Dead"), is now a series regular on the show.
Also promoted to series regulars for Season 4 are Chad Coleman, who plays the reasonable Tyreese, and Sonequa Martin-Green, who plays his sister, Sasha. Both Sasha and Tyreese returned to the prison at the end of Season 3 and began to settle in.
And, Emily Kinney, who has been playing Beth Greene since Season 2, and became more prominent over Season 3 - showing off her real life singing skills, and - in character - took care of Rick's daughter Judith, has also been promoted.
"The Walking Dead" is expected to return to AMC in October.
