[SPOILER ALERT: Stop reading now if you have yet to watch the season 3 finale of The Walking Dead.]
The Walking Dead finished season 3 with a lot of people dying and relocating. But what does it mean for what happens next in season 4? Well, we have the first bits of intel for you right here and right now! In the exclusive season 4 preview video below, the cast and producers shed some light on what to expect when the hit zombie drama returns in October.
Think the Governor is gone for good after he slaughtered his own citizens and took off with Martinez and that other henchman? Think again! “The Governor is still out there,” says co-executive producer Denise Huth. “The war is not over. Rick and our group here won the first round and scared him off.”
What about possibly budding psychopath Carl Grimes, who shot another young soldier who appeared to be handing over —albeit waaaaay too slowly — his weapon? Where is that character going when the show picks back up? “Carl’s changing,” says Huth.
It’s a huge wake-up call for Rick. And it’s a big fear for him moving into the next season. Is Carl going to be Rick, or is Carl going to be the Governor? And right now Carl could go either way.”
Also look for the world of The Walking Dead to expand well beyond the prison-Woodbury feud. “We will be getting into more world building, more civilization being brought back,” says Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. “A little bit more of a bigger sense of community.” And don’t assume it’s gong to be smooth sailing with all those former Woodburyites now moving into the prison. “What’s going to happen as these two groups who literally were at war with each other moments before, how are they going to integrate?” asks executive producer Gale Anne Hurd.
