“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 help his people do whatever they can to retain their humanity. “We’re not too far gone,” he insists in one emotional moment.
Based on Robert Kirkman’s comic book, “The Walking Dead” has become a true TV blockbuster — it’s the most watched drama in the history of cable television.
The mid-season finale that aired in December attracted 12.1 million viewers, according to AMC.
