The fourth season of the AMC zombie apocalypse drama "The Walking Dead" is only a few weeks away, and it seems many of the spoilers are turning out to be true. On Thursday, September 12 TVLine posted an extended sneak peek of the new season with interviews from the cast and executive producers.
The nearly four minute video reveals that the time jump between season three and season four is about six or seven months and a lot has changed. The prison is more fortified with a new gate, but the herds of walkers are almost crushing the fences. Herschel and some others are focusing on growing food for everyone in the field. Rick is still in charge of everyone but he is struggling with the burden.
New show runner Scott Gimple talks about the new threat the survivors will face this season, which is not human or related to the walkers. New footage shows walkers getting into the prison and attacking kids, while Daryl and Tyreese also get surrounded by walkers while out on a supply run. Carol has begun teaching school and giving survival tips like how to best use knives. Carol seems to have made some age appropriate friends and is more like himself, despite his actions in the season three finale.
Michonne has discovered a horse and that she now her preferred method of transportation whenever she needs to leave the prison. A new character makes more than one appearance and seems to be a member of Woodbury who has been staying at the prison.
Other cast members talk about how characters will be more isolated this season, and episode will focus on relationships and the future of the group more and more. Executive producers Denise Hurd and Robert Kirkman talk about how the prison has been a safe place but a new, previously unseen threat will change that.
"The Walking Dead" returns for season four on Sunday, October 13 at 9 p.m. on AMC. Tune in to see how the prison has changed and what sort of drama everyone is in for this season.
