The Walking Dead is set to return to AMC next month so you have time to catch up with the first three seasons before the walkers start after our heroes again. The series has now diverged so far from the comic that I have no idea where it goes from here. I was not a fan of the way they ended season three, but only because I was so disappointed with how they’d ruined (SPOILER) that it didn’t bother me when (SPOILER) in the head. One thing they did massively improve on from the second season was the pacing, getting things back to the urgent feeling we got in the first season. Take in these newly released shots of Rick and company (so glad Tyrese finally showed up) and the official AMC season synopsis as well as the titles and descriptions of the first four episodes are down below.
One last thing, for those watching The Walking Dead Webisode series, it’s set to return on October 1st. There are three new installments called The Oath. It was directed by Greg Nicotero, the story will follow the lone survivors of a massive zombie attack, and it stars Ashley Bell (The Last Exorcism 2), Wyatt Russell, and Ellen Greene. The director had this to say in a statement,
“The webisodes give us a unique opportunity to see other parts of the ravaged world of ‘The Walking Dead’ while weaving in and out of our show. The crossover between ‘The Oath’ and ‘The Walking Dead’ ties in one of the most iconic images from the series, and gives us insights and history to yet another timeline.”
EPISODE 401: 30 Days Without An Accident – Rick and the group are as close to an ideal life as possible at the prison. Will they be able to hold on to humanity in the face of a new evil?
EPISODE 402: Infected – As the group faces a brand new enemy, Rick and the others must fight to protect the livelihood they worked so hard to create at the prison.
EPISODE 403: Isolation – A group leaves the prison to search for supplies; the remaining members of the group deal with recent losses.
EPISODE 404: Indifference – The supply mission faces hurdles; the situation at the prison worsens.
In the highly anticipated new season, we find Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the group fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison. Sadly, in this brutal world, happiness is short-lived and walkers and outside threats are no match for danger brewing inside the fences. The group’s home and new way of life will be thoroughly tested, and their struggle to survive has never been so perilous. Season 4 also introduces several new characters including Bob Stookey (Lawrence Gilliard Jr., “The Wire”).
The Walking Dead Season 4 premieres on Sunday, October 13 at 9 PM ET on AMC.
