'The Walking Dead' Creator Confirms [SPOILER] for Season 4

 

The Walking Dead

 

The fourth season of AMC's zombie drama 'The Walking Dead' premieres tonight with the episode "30 Days Without an Accident." With the show's creative turnover (showrunner Glenn Mazzara leaving and being replaced by Scott Gimple), you can bet that 'The Walking Dead' will be an entirely different beast this season. 

But the beasts are going to be different, too. 

Zombies aren't the only threat to be contended with this season, it turns out. In fact, it turns out that they're not even the only flesh-eating threat this season. Robert Kirkman let that fact slip in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter

Kirkman, who created and writes the comic book series upon which the show is based, was talking about the upcoming season's increased character development when he made a rather significant offhand statement: "We're going to know who these people are and what they're doing and why they're doing what they're doing. It's good to get to a point where we can finally take the time to do that. Some of them are going to get eaten by zombies and some of them are going to get eaten by other people and bad things are going to happen to all of them in the meantime, but we're going to be doing a lot of character studies, nuts and bolts stuff."

Did you catch it? 

It was the "some of them are going to get eaten by other people" part. 

If Kirkman is to be believed -- and I certainly think he should -- this means that Season 4 will introduce us to the Hunters, a group of cannibals who menace Rick's group for a short time in the comic book series. They do claim the life of a major character in the comics -- but that character's television counterpart has been dead for over a season, meaning that the Hunters could prove to be a very real threat to pretty much anyone on the main cast. 

What do you think? Are you ready to see the living dig into some flesh with the same gusto as the dead? 

'The Walking Dead' Season 4 premieres tonight at 9/8c on AMC.

A lot of the lengthy drag may have been down to low budgets or early showrunners.  Since there's barely any of the old gaurd left, (not to mention AMC should have some more cash to throw around these days), I think they should be able to pack a bit more into each episode.

good show--but sometimes-it drags-needs more action/story the new ep was ok-better than the finale--in my opinion. and if they kill of the 7/8 MAIN character's then im not watching-esp if they kill rick, like game,of thrones--since they killed the stark family--ive stopped watching-as we have watched for 3/4 seasons for them to take revenge--then its over/stupid- so better not happen with walking dead
