The Walking Dead, the most watched drama in American basic cable history, returns for another terrifying and exhilarating season a mere 24 hours after the US broadcast.
In this post-apocalyptic world, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his band of survivors continue their ongoing struggle to survive the threat of walkers as well as the dangers that lurk among the living.
In the new season, we find Rick and the group fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison. Sadly, in this brutal world, happiness is short-lived and walkers and outside threats are no match for danger brewing inside the fences.
The group's home and new way of life will be thoroughly tested, and their struggle to survive has never been so perilous. Season 4 also introduces several new characters including Bob Stookey (Lawrence Gilliard Jr., The Wire).
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead stars Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Scott Wilson, Melissa McBride, David Morrissey, Emily Kinney, Danai Gurira, Chad Coleman and Sonequa Martin-Green.
The series is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Tom Luse and Greg Nicotero.
Season 4 premiered on FOX on Monday 14 October 2013, at 22h00. The season went on hiatus after eight episodes had aired to accommodate a similar hiatus in the USA and resumed on Monday 10 February 2014, at 22h00. This was the first season to air in first-run on FOX.
