Update (10/11/13): See a sneak peek of Michael's appearance on MythBusters below and head on over to Entertainment Weekly for an additional exclusive clip! 

Original Story (10/2/13): Michael Rooker (Merle Dixon) may have been one of The Governor’s many casualties of The Walking Dead Season 3, but the actor still lives on — and in zombie form no less!

TVLine reports that Michael is scheduled to appear in a zombie-themed episode of the Discovery Channel show MythBusters alongside TWD’s executive producer Greg Nicotero and many walkers, natch.

MythBusters previously aired a Breaking Bad special featuring Aaron Paul and Vince Gilligan, and the TWD instalment is expected to stay true to the Walking Dead world, meaning it will take on several zombie-themed questions Rick and Team Prison are often faced with.

Some of the post-apocalyptic queries include “Are axes or guns more effective at dispatching the undead?” and “How do those shuffling corpses always seem to catch up to their living prey?” Both valid questions if you ask us!

The Walking Dead themed episode of MythBusters is scheduled to air on October 17 at 10 p.m. ET on Discovery Channel.
