"The Walking Dead" Season Four Comic-Con Trailer: I Got My Fist, I Got My Plan, I Got Survivalism

By TK | Trailers | July 19, 2013 | Comments ()


I’ll say this much about the makers of “The Walking Dead”: They give good trailer.

Here’s the first trailer for Season Four, released today at Comic-Con to much clamor and joy. Rightfully damn so, because it’s pretty goddamn great. After an up-and-down season two and three, I’m actually quite looking forward to season four, mainly because newbie showrunner Scott Gimple has proven pretty great in the episodes he piloted in the last season. Also, by all reports it’s going to be much more zombie-heavy, thankfully — one of my gripes has always been that they never quite know how to balance the human interaction with the zombie mayhem, and last season often felt like it was short on the latter. That said, there are also fascinating hints of enemies inside and out of the group, just to keep things interesting.

Also of interest is the addition of Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (D’Angelo Barksdale from “The Wire”), an actor who doesn’t really seem to be getting enough mainstream work, and an expanded role for Chad Coleman as Tyrese. Honestly, you could build a splinter group of those two, Daryl, Michonne, Glenn and Maggie, send them off by themselves, and I’d be happy. Anyway, the footage is excellent — raw, emotional, gripping, gory, scary and creepy. Everything the show should be.

Take a lookie:

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Miles Curtis

    Who/what do people think Tyreese is looking at @2:13? Personally think it would either be Sasha, which was more initial thought given that she is not in the car with him later on and I can't imagine a scenario when he would leave her, or as someone pointed out to me later, it could be Karen (as there were hints of a romantic relationship)

  • ViciousTrollop

    Did Tyrese always have a son or is he new? Dude is giving off serious Cousin Oliver vibes.

    I'm glad to see more women and POC but I'm sure they'll all be eaten sooner rather than later.

    This show has one last chance before I'm out. It has become laborious to watch and the characters are all over the place.

  • Miles Curtis

    He's not his son, he's a survivor from Woodbury, hence why he shouts 'Ty' instead of 'Dad' when it looks like Tyreese is about to get eaten. I would guess based off Bob from the comics, given that his name is Bob Stookey, though Bob in the comics is pretty old

  • Eve

    I used to love The Walking Dead, then Lori started grating on my very last nerve -- she was finally killed off but insisted on showing up during Rick's delusional moments.

    Then Andrea became "oh, me so horny" for the Governor -- which made her turn a blind eye (no pun intended) to the BLEEDING OBVIOUS horrible things he was doing -- replacing Lori as the most annoying character in the show. And there's that kid...my god, I can't stand that kid, I even hate the fact he wears his father's hat.

    Anyway, it came to a point where I realized I was rooting for the zombies so I stopped watching the show.

  • Season 4

    I'll try.

  • peachykeen5014

    I was watching the trailer and I was like, where the hell did all those people come from!? I had completely forgotten how last season ended.

    Dear season 4, please be more memorable than season 3. Please?

  • Holy crapadoodie.

  • ChomskyTheBear

    I'm having a zombie boner. A zomboner. It's alive and it's terrifying. I may need to go to the ER.

  • The Replicant Brooke

    A Zomboni?

  • lowercase_ryan

    I'm so excited. Gimple had the best two eps of last season (Clear was far and away the best), I think the dude just gets it.

  • Jerce



    ...Right. If anyone wants me, I'll be squatting in front of my teevee until October 13th. And if anyone wants me while Breaking Bad is on, they are SOL.

  • Pat Sponaugle

    Ah. Now I can exhale.

  • Finance_Nerd

    Uh oh. I may be turning into a zombie. One of my legs is all stiff after that preview...

  • Dennis Albert Ramirez

    psyched psyched psyched, especially with Lawrence coming on the show and Chad getting a bigger role as Tyrese. his fight with Rick should be great, and I'm glad that they've veered away from the comics as much as they have so I won't be able to predict much of what comes next

  • melissa82

    I'm so excited -- I would never wish away summer, but I can't wait for Oct 13th!

  • Damn! That trailer may just get me watching again.

  • Ryan Ambrose

    Oh, well. That's what you get for living in Narnia.

  • John G.

    I'm in Narnia, dude, and I can view it
