Morrissey said that he objects to such programmes and described them as "the modern equivalent of throwing cabbages at people in the stocks".
The British actor, who plays The Governor in the hit AMC/Fox zombie series, also suggested that TV bosses spend less time making period drama.
"The next ten years are going to be very challenging and that needs to be reflected on our screens," Morrissey told the Radio Times.
"My taste is always about what's happening to real people, right now."
The Walking Dead's third season returns to UK screens on Friday (February 15) on Fox. It continues in the Us on AMC on Sundays.
