In the months since the third season drew to a close and fans were left reeling from the bloodbath that claimed the lives of many of the show’s original cast members, theories and questions have been spiraling and taking seed; will the prison community survive without Rick’s leadership? What does The Governor have planned for his revenge on Rick and his group of survivors? These questions will finally be answered in the premiere episode of the fourth season, directed by horror veteran Greg Nicotero. Set in and around the prison, prepare to be thrown into a world where there are more walkers than humans and are a threat like never before. Viewers will discover what happens to Rick as he fights to return to the man he once was while Daryl struggles with the loss of his brother and is also presented with the opportunity to be a leader. There will also be a number of new faces, some of whom will be familiar to fans of the graphic novels.
Fans of The Walking Dead are also encouraged to download the hugely popular Dead Yourself App, which has already generated millions of downloads with many more fan photos globally. The free app allows users to transform their likeness into that of a photo-realistic walker, with terrifying results. Photos can be edited with the app, adding zombie eyes, mouths and props from The Walking Dead, before being shared on Facebook, Twitter and the public walker photo gallery. The Dead Yourself App is currently available on i-phone, Android and deadyourself.com.
Since FIC launched the first season of The Walking Dead, it has achieved records worldwide across FIC’s 200 entertainment channels in 122 countries, with season three’s finale ranked as the top show on pay-TV during its broadcast.
