Season 4 of The Walking Dead, premiering in October, promises to introduce new kinds of walkers we haven't seen before on the grisly AMC thriller, including a zombie baby.

"There's a little hint of that in the premiere," says Danai Gurira (Michonne). Executive producer Gregory Nicotero says the series almost went there last season when Daryl and Maggie searched for baby formula at a day-care center.

Though the premiere episode hasn't yet been locked, exec producer Robert Kirkman confirms the appearance: "It'll be something different from the baby who was seen in [2004's] Dawn of the Dead remake, which was horrific and done so well. There's still room for us to do something different and cool."
