Episode Title And New Character Details For The Walking Dead Season 4


20130701-134737.jpgThis has been a crazy week for The Walking Dead and things are only going to get crazier. This week saw the release of a new DLC episode of The Walking Dead game by Telltale, the comics will go bi-monthly for a huge event, there will be a huge celebration for the series’ 10th Anniversary at Comic-Con, and the show will have an even larger presence at this year’s convention. Today we learn a little more about what we’ll see when the AMC smash-hit returns to our TVs this October. The premiere episode’s title has been revealed and we get some details about 3 new characters.

TV Line had the scoop on the fourth season of the series revealing the premiere’s title. Kicking off the new season will be incoming showrunner Scott M. Gimple with an episode sporting the intriguing title of 30 Days Without an Accident. This seems to signal that we’ll have another small time shift when we catch back up with Rick‘s gang. The third season passed over the winter, but it looks like season 4 will just skip a single month.

At the end of the last episode, we saw that Rick bused in some new recruits from Woodbury to join up with his crew. Three of the new characters taking a larger role within the new group have been named and described. TV Line was fielding questions from readers regarding their favorite TV shows, and this is what the site had to say when asked if the Governor‘s origin story would be explored in season 4 (emphasis my own):

The Governor’s origin story, which I imagine would have to include his former ally Milt, seems like a golden story opportunity for new showrunner Scott Gimple — especially since David Morrissey is back as a regular in Season 4. But I honestly have no idea if it’s in the cards. The show could just as easily wind up being too busy with new recurring characters like Laura, a single mom and ex-nurse who isn’t quite as strong as she first appears; Melody, a “just one of the guys” kinda gal in her 20s; and Don, who sounds like Hershel, if Hershel were crankier and two-legged.

So it looks like a few interesting characters will come in and try to fill the shoes of the ones we lost over the course of last season. With the comics and show having big announcements almost ever day the past few days, I’d say we might hear a little more about the fourth season. We’ll at least see and hear some new things when Comic-Con finally rolls around. What do you think about the episode title? What about the new characters?
