“The Walking Dead” is set to return for the second half of its fourth season on Sunday, Feb. 9, and AMC has released a short trailer teasing what’s to come for the beleaguered survivors on the hit zombie show. In the wake of the events of December’s mid-season finale, the Governor is no longer a threat, but Rick Grimes and his people have lost the option of sheltering in the prison. After a bloody confrontation that left key players dead, the members of the group find themselves back out on the road searching for some kind of safe haven, and one another. Difficult choices and potential enemies, not to mention walkers, greet them at every turn. The trailer, which plays to a haunting rendition of “Bad Moon Rising,” suggests that in spite of everything, Andrew Lincoln’s Rick is determined to […]

Show runner Glen Mazzara spoke with Hero Complex in a two-part interview about the remainder of the season, promising more surprises for diehard fans — and warning that, should the story demand their deaths, no character is safe. PREVIEW: Season 3 episodes | RECAP: ‘Made to Suffer’ “We’ve already deviated from the Governor’s [comic] storyline in interesting ways; it’s a matter of continuing to tell that story and being honest and true to the essence of what’s there,” Mazzara said. “But comic book fans will not be able to guess what’s coming.” It’s been a long wait for “Dead” devotees, who were informed during […]
