Season 4 of The Walking Dead is coming up in just a few months, and with its arrival comes the usual spread of marketing spam and teasers. Today, Nerd Bastards brings you the above-pictured promotional banner for season 4, as well as the title of the new season’s premiere episode.
As most know, The Walking Dead has a new face at the helm in the form of Scott M. Gimple. Taking over for Glen Mazzara, Gimple is responsible for what are widely regarded as the two best episodes from last season. And, naturally, the premiere for season 4 will be written by him. Titled ’30 Days Without An Incident’, it seems to suggest that Gimple may be giving the crew a break. Gods know they deserve it after all the shit-storm they had to deal with last season.
And as another site has seen fit to point out, there is no Governor on the new promotional, just a bunch of zombies. Coupled with this statement from one of the show’s producers…
We are going to amp up the threat of the walkers, because they’ve started to seem like a manageable threat. They are not a manageable threat.
…it looks like we may be getting a more zombie-centric story this time around, which would be okay in my book. Likely, more information will pop up at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, so look forward to that.
How do the people out in Nerdland feel about season 4? Hopeful? Fed up? Do you think Gimple will be able to bring us to new heights of (non-necropheliac) zombie ecstasy?
Keep in touch for more news and don’t forget to tune in when The Walking Dead returns in October.
Thanks to screenrant for the heads-up.
