Is there anyone on TV more badass than the men of “The Walking Dead”? In case you need a reminder, Entertainment Weekly has Rick, Daryl, and Carl front and center on its three covers for this week’s issue. Take a peek right here, and get a few more scoops on Season 4 as well.
“The first episode, we had days where there were 150 walkers,” exec producer and zombie makeup guru Greg Nicotero told EW. Meanwhile, new showrunner Scott Gimple teases that along with herds of zombies attacking from the outside, there will also be a mysterious menace to deal with from the inside. “The new threat is something you can’t just stab in the face. You can’t talk sense to it. You can’t make a truce with it. It’s beyond all that. It would be a threat in any world, but in this world it is much more terrifying.”
What does it all mean? All we know is we can’t wait for October when Season 4 premieres on AMC!
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.
