Season Four of the hit AMC original series “The Walking Dead” is set to premier this Sunday, October 13. Check out the trailer below:
The network is following a pattern it uses for highly anticipated premiers and running “Zombie Apocalypse Week,” a marathon of the entire series, leading up to the season premier. If you tune in tonight, you will pick up in the middle of season two. Check the AMC website for the complete marathon schedule and tune in or set your DVR to pick up where you left off!
(Even though this marathon has passed, AMC will run a complete marathon from time to time, so it is always good to check back in to see when The Walking Dead will be playing non stop and can be recorded.)
For those who are caught up, you are aware that some of the original cast members will not be returning this year, which brings an opportunity for new faces and story lines to emerge. Norman Reedus (Daryl) discusses the new dynamic this brings to the show in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. (Warning! Spoilers)
To further promote the new season, cast members (Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus) make an appearance at NY Comic Con for a panel on Saturday, October 12.
AMC has been enjoying record-breaking ratings lately. The season three finale of The Walking Dead attracted 12.4 million viewers, more than the series finale of Breaking Bad, with 10.3 million viewers. It is safe to say AMC can expect to break more records on Sunday, especially when new show runner Scott Gimple reveals (in this Entertainment Weekly Q & A) that the premier will include “one of the biggest and most intricate action scenes the series has ever filmed.” Where will you be watching? Sound off in the comments.
