At Comic-Con on Friday, AMC premiered footage from the upcoming fourth season of "The Walking Dead." The trailer showcased a rebuilt and reinforced prison in which a new group of survivors have joined the series regulars, and it hinted at what the show's creators promised will be a renewed threat from the show's zombies.
Some highlights from the show's stars on what's in store for their characters:
Andrew Lincoln (Rick) on the Woodbury survivors joining the group: "When we meet them all in Season 4, there is a whole new community in the prison and friction between certain characters. It makes for incredible character-driven scenes."
Creator Robert Kirkman: "The world is getting worse, the people are getting more ragged, and it’s going to keep progressing, if you can believe that."
Lincoln on Rick's relationship with son, Carl: "Rick seeing turning into a sociopath at the end of the season woke him up to his parenting duties. You find Rick in a completely different place this season."
Kirkman on the Governor: "All bets are off with the Governor. How he returns is going to be a mystery of the next season."
David Morrissey, who plays the Governor, on whether he thinks the character is completely evil: "I mean, he went off with two of them; he didn't kill them all. So, you've got to give him that."
Norman Reedus on Daryl: "Without Meryl around, he can find this sense of self-worth that he never had before."
Chad Coleman on his character: "On a certain level, Tyreese is still trying to figure out how he fits in and what are the rules of engagement for him."
Scott Wilson on the motivation of his character, Hershel: "I think he just wants to hold on to his other leg."
Season 4 of "The Walking Dead" premieres Sunday, 10/13 at 9 PM on AMC.
