“What you see a little bit of in that trailer is Tyreese stepping up as a character and taking a more central role. We didn't get a lot of time with him in Season 3 with everything else that was going on, and now in Season 4 we are really able to bring him to the forefront and integrate him into the core cast in a bigger way. We're doing a lot with him. I think Chad Coleman has proven that he's got very broad shoulders that can carry the lead and everything we ask him to do. I'm excited for people to see where we take his character because it's going to be really awesome.”

I'm excited for people to see where we take his character because it's going to be really awesome.”

At Comic-Con last month, IGN sat down with The Walking Dead creator/executive producer/writer Robert Kirkman, when he revealed the above, and more about the highly-anticipated 4th season of the hit AMC series.

We've been teased a lot since the end of last season, on what to expect in season 4. Most recently, there was talk of possible new romances between characters, although nothing's been confirmed.

We'll just have to wait and see when the 4th season of The Walking Dead debuts on October 13 at 9pm.

What can I say, except this should be an interesting season for the series, if only because we really have no idea what direction the various narratives are going to take, after all that transpired last season. 

There'll be 4 black series regulars this time around (Lawrence Gilliard Jr. joins the cast, playing a character named Bob Stookey), so it's only natural that at least one of them has to die... or maybe not. Maybe we'll be surprised this season!

Although, it should be expected that somebody, or some people in the starring cast, will die before the season ends. It's happened each of the last 3 seasons.

The 4th season will be a 16-episode season, divided into 2 halves

Still alive and returning next season will be regulars Andrew LincolnDavid MorrisseySteven YeunNorman ReedusDanai GuriraChandler RiggsLauren CohanScott WilsonMelissa McBrideChad ColemanSonequa Martin-Green and Emily Kinney.
