The zombie drama returns to UK screens this Friday (February 15) on Fox, with mid-season premiere 'The Suicide King'.
Morrissey told DS that the show's third season picks up with his character The Governor in "quite a brutal place".
"He's lost his daughter, he's been attacked himself - he's lost his eye - so he's in quite a brutal place," said the actor. "That new Governor will go [on] into the second half of season three."
Morrissey also hinted at the possibility of a "clash" between the Governor and Andrew Lincoln's ex-cop Rick Grimes.
"The stars seem to be aligned in that way - so we'll have to wait and see whether they come together in any sort of clash," he teased.
The Walking Dead season three returns to Fox (UK) on Friday, February 15 at 10pm.
