Michonne

You folks, who are rabid fans of the original comic book series that the TV show is based on, will have to chime in with your wisdom on this.

What I can tell you with certainty is that Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (likely best known for his role as  on The Wire) will join the season 4 cast of AMC's hit zombie drama series The Walking Dead, in a new series regular role, playing a character named Bob Stookey - described as the local town drunk of Woodbury and a former army medic, who descended into alcoholism before the zombie apocalypse; and after the apocalypse, was one of many survivors to join The Governor's settlement in Woodbury.

We also know that Chad Coleman (who plays Tyreese, and who's also a former cast member of The Wire), Danai Gurira as Michonne, and Sonequa Martin-Green (who plays Sasha, although she's not a character that exists in the comic book source material) are all returning to season 4, which debuts in October.

This means that there'll be 4 black series regulars on the hit AMC show (emphasis on series regulars), which, I believe, will be a history-making event for The Walking Dead - assuming none of them succumbs to zombie bites early on in the upcoming new season!

There's even a chance that we might see Lennie James back again as Morgan, for an episode or two.

Careful there AMC - if you add anymore black characters, people might suddenly get the idea that this is a "black show," and you don't want that, do you?

But seriously, what might this poster, which AMC has unveiled for Comic-Con (where attendees might be getting some firsthand scoop on what to expect when the series returns in the fall for a 4th season), foretell/suggest/tells us/etc, about what's coming - especially for Tyreese and Michonne?

Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, and Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, also clearly feature.

Also, don't forget, starting ThursdayJuly 4th at 1PM ET/PTAMC invites viewers to tune-in to "The Walking Dead Season 4 Preview Weekend," hosted by Kevin Smith from the Atlanta-based set where the cast are currently filming the upcoming, highly-anticipated season 4 of the hit series. Smith will talk to the cast and crew and share behind-the-scenes footage from the upcoming new season. 

Here's the new poster/banner:
