On Wednesday, January 1 Wetpaint Entertainment posted several new sneak peeks for the remaining eight episodes of "The Walking Dead" season four, as well as a brand new series poster. There is still a month left until the series returns, but the new clips provide spoilers as to what has become of the survivors in the aftermath of the prison attack. The new clips were released during the New Year's Day marathon of the entire series on AMC.
The new television poster reveals the changes that the end of the fourth season will bring, especially for Carl. Both Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) are shown walking along some train tracks. Carl has embraced being like his father again, by wearing his hat like he did in the earlier seasons. The top of the poster includes the words "Don't Look Back," which indicates the group will need to find a new safe haven for the future.
The first sneak peek includes Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) running through a field either from walkers or other people. The short clip ends with them sleeping on the ground or pretending to sleep. Another clip shows walkers invading the prison grounds while Michonne walks up behind the herd and pulls out her katana.
The third clip features a large ditch filled with hungry walkers who are trapped, while Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) sleeps near the edge of the ditch with his rifle. When he wakes up, it's unclear if he was sleeping or he has not yet fully recovered from the virus. The final clip shows Carl walking up to a closed door and opening it very carefully. A walker suddenly appears and tries to get him, but Carl jumps away just in time.
The second half of the season will include more episodes that focus on individual characters since the prison group has been split into smaller groups. The ninth episode will focus on Carl and at least one episode will follow Daryl for the most part. Three new characters will be introduced before season five, and they are Dr. Eugene Porter, Abraham Ford, and Rosita Espinosa who are all from the comic books.
"The Walking Dead" season four will return on Sunday, February 9 at 9 p.m. on AMC and run through the end of March. The rest of the season will include new characters, new locations and more character deaths. The fifth season will begin filming this summer in Atlanta.
