The winter finale of “The Walking Dead” saw the Prison team scattered to the four winds in the wake of the battle between rick grimes’ people and The Governor’s. Showrunner Scott Gimple talked to Wetpaint about what’s next. In their Dec. 25 post, the site shared some insight into what fans have to look forward to in the second half of season 4.
While he wouldn’t say anything specific, he did say fans of the comic book would see some familiar stuff as well as some new stuff. He said, “There's going to be a lot of familiar stuff, brand-new stuff and remixed stuff. There are some things where you will totally know them and hopefully be expecting them, and then there will be stuff that's brand-new that you have no idea if it's coming but it will circle around to moments from the comic. It's very much like these eight [episodes]. Comic fans once again will absolutely see a lot of iconic moments.”
The Hollywood reporter revealed three new characters headed our way - Sgt. Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos), and Dr. Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt). Referring to these three Scott added we’re likely to see them “sooner rather than later.” Our guess is we’ll see them in episode 10.
In the comic book, Rick meets that trio at Herschel’s old farm but since that burned in season 2, who knows? Again, in the comic book, the trio was headed for Washington D.C. and Rick’s group joined them. There is no telling if that will still be the case now.
We’ll have to wait for the second half premiere of “The Walking Dead” on February 9 to find out. Until then, check back often for news, updates and spoilers as they become available.
