The Walking Dead Season Four returns to US TV in a matter of weeks, and as the anticipation grows, so does the marketing. Today we have quite a bit to show you, and if you really can’t wait for the shows return, then today’s collection of stuff just might tip you over the edge!
We have a new trailer to show you, plus an official synopsis has been released for the first episode of the series’ return, two new images have been released and AMC have also partnered with First My Family to bring fans a survival kit retailing at $129.99.
The next episode is due to be aired on Sunday 9th February 2014.
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead tells the story of a group of survivors who travel in search of a safe and secure home in the months and years following a zombie apocalypse. The series stars Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Emily Kinney.
The series is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Tom Luse, and Greg Nicotero.
Following the devastating events of the mid-season finale, Rick and the group are still reeling from the loss of their home, family, and friends. With the destruction of the prison, we see the group of survivors broken apart and sent on divergent paths, unsure of everyone else’s fate. What was a challenging life behind fences and walls grows that much more perilous and precious as they are exposed to new dangers, new enemies, and heartbreaking choices. They will have their faith thoroughly tested — a faith that breaks some of them and redeems others.
Here is the synopsis for Episode 4.09, titled “After”:
As Rick (Lincoln) deals with old wounds, members of the prison have to come to terms with their new environment and ask themselves if survival alone is enough. Written by Robert Kirkman and directed by Greg Nicotero.
