The Walking Dead has gone through some growing pains over the last three seasons. Under former showrunner Frank Darabont, some viewers complained that the story was lagging, while under other former showrunner Glen Mazzara, the breakneck speed arguably gave some people whiplash. That's not to say each chapter didn't have its own merits, but under new showrunner Scott Gimple, the fourth season will take a more nuanced look at the zombie apocalypse that will really get to the root of each character...
In order to enter Andrew Lincoln's trailer on the Senoia, Georgia, set of The Walking Dead, you must first step on a Duck Dynasty welcome mat — not exactly the greeting you'd expect from the 40-year-old British graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

"There are four possible outcomes and each of them have their own particular consequences," he says. "There's no version of this that's easy and that they live happily ever after — even with the good stuff." And while Rick would certainly be heartbroken if Beckett said no, Marlowe says Beckett has the most to lose. "How can she make any choice without giving something up? She'll have to sacrifice something," he teases.

When The Walking Dead returns this fall, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) & Co. will still be residing in the prison — but that doesn't mean we're in for a lull while the group learns how to be a community again. After all, there's still the ever-present danger of The Governor (David Morrissey), who abandoned Woodbury and left his former residents to be taken in by Rick. But how is Rick dealing in a world where nearly everyone he's gotten close to has died and his son is on a precarious path to becoming a monster? TVGuide.com turned to executive producer and comic book creator Robert Kirkman and new showrunner Scott Gimple to get the scoop on the new season and which elements of the comics will be introduced this year.
