AMC’s smash hit zombie apocalypse series returns this fall for its fourth season.
The network has announced that The Walking Dead will make its season premiere on Sunday, October 13 (9/8c). Like last year, Season Four will be comprised of 16 episodes — with eight airing in the fall, and another eight starting in February.
A new season of the behind-the-scenes talker The Talking Dead will follow at 10/9c, hosted by Chris Hardwick.
Here is how the network describes the new season:
In the highly anticipated new season, we find Rick and the group fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison. Sadly, in this brutal world, happiness is short-lived and walkers and outside threats are no match for danger brewing inside the fences. The group’s home and new way of life will be thoroughly tested, and their struggle to survive has never been so perilous. Season 4 also introduces several new characters including Bob Stookey (Lawrence Gilliard Jr., The Wire).
Based on the comic book series by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Scott Wilson, Melissa McBride, David Morrissey, Emily Kinney, DanaiGurira, Chad Coleman, and Sonequa Martin-Green.
AMC debuted an epic trailer for the new season last week at Comic-Con, clocking in at nearly four and a half minutes. (Watch out for some spoilers.) Check it out below, and stick with SciFi Stream for more on the new season of The Walking Dead!
