The Walking Dead Season 4 Webisode Series Details Emerge
AMC‘s multi-award winning webisode series for The Walking Dead will return with three new shorts entitled The Oath. The 7 to 10 minute episodes was executive produced, directed, and conceived by Greg Nicotero, the main show’s special effects wizard and occasional director. AMC has released details on the story and the cast for the three shorts:
The lone survivors of a massive walker-attack, Paul (Wyatt Russell, Cowboys and Aliens) and Karina (Ashley Bell, The Last Exorcism), speed across the countryside, frantically searching for an aid-station, as one of them slowly bleeds out from a wound. Finally coming upon a hospital that has not been overrun at first feels like a blessing, but could soon turn to misfortune, as a seemingly benevolent doctor (Ellen Greene, Little Shop of Horrors) may hide a darker agenda.
The webisodes will be another feather in Nicotero‘s hat, having directed season 4′s premiere episode. Nicotero said that the main draw of the webisodes is that you can explore other parts of the world created by Robert Kirkman. The first web series, Torn Apart, ended with the introduction of the bicycle girl Rick Grimes put out of her misery in the first episode of the main series. Nicotero promises that there will be another big connection with The Oath, saying “The crossover between The Oath and The Walking Dead ties in one of the most iconic images from the series, and gives us insights and history to yet another timeline.“
The previous two season, Torn Apart and Cold Storage, won back-to-back WGA, Streamy and Webby awards so it’s safe to say these three web episodes have a lot to live up to. AMC‘s site says the new web series will premiere on their YouTube pages Sunday, October 1st but as you can see on a calendar that date doesn’t match. The series will either kick off this Sunday, September 29th or Tuesday, October 1st. We’ll keep a lookout and let you know when the first episode hits. Have you liked the other two webisodes? Will you be checking this one out?
