The Walking Dead will be ramping up the zombie threat when it returns in the fall. The show's fourth season premieres in October, and with the Governor (David Morrissey) in the wind, the show's focus is moving back to the zombies.
Speaking to EW, Norman Reedus (who plays fan favorite Daryl on the series), shared that the show's writers had created an innovation to make the threat of the zombies more real. Calling the fourth season's scripts "just amazing" and "super intense," Reedus promised some zombie innovation: "They’ve introduced a way to make the zombies scary again,” he says. “They’re terrifying. The new threat is just unreal.”
What do you think? Will the zombies be advancing into '28 Days Later' territory with speed and agility? Or will they just get smarter? Producers have mentioned that with the diminishing supply of humans, the zombies are going to be hungrier -- and more desperate.
As for the rest of the season, Reedus thinks things are shaping up nicely: “The structure of the writing is a bit different,” he said. “It’s so intense. These are our best scripts so far.”
