Scott Gimple will be the third man to take the job and will oversee what sounds like a new direction for the series. Gimple wrote this past season’s episode Clear which featured the return of Morgan. He also penned the season 2 episode Pretty Much Dead Already which shocked fans around the world when little zombie Sophia emerged from the barn. But this season sees Rick and his group regrouping after standing up to the Governor and surviving…for now at least.  The Governor is off in the wilderness with two of his henchmen waiting for his next opportunity to strike. Rick has to pull his group, and the new recruits he picked up from Woodbury, together. The Hollywood Reporter got the scoop on what’s coming up in the new season.

THR posted a new video giving us our first glimpse of season 4 and a few tiny snippets of filming for the premiere episode. The producers talk up Scott Gimple, but they also revealed that show stalwart and VFX master Greg Nicotero will be directing the new season’s first episode which is written by Gimple. Nicotero teased the episode by saying the episode is “bigger than any script I’ve ever done before. [There's] new people coming in, some great character turns, great twists that will delight the fans.” Filming is starting back up for the new season, so we’re sure to hear a lot more between now and October. Are you ready for the new season? Any guesses on what will happen?
