Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman says that the new season’s episodes will be much more character-based, now that Scott Gimple is taking over as show runner.
“It’s going to be more focused on who these characters are and what they’re going through. To a certain extent, we got away from that a little bit in season three. Coming into season four, we’re definitely going to know a lot more about these people so it will be that much more gut-wrenching and worse when we lose these characters,” says Kirkman.
The fourth season will take place a few months after the events in the third season finale and a lot of the events and deaths in the third season will have a direct impact on the fourth.
Last but not least, artist Alex Ross has released a limited-edition poster for the show that’ll be at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
