[TV] “The Walking Dead” Trio Cover This Week’s EW


This week’s issue of EW features a trio of stars from the forthcoming fourth season of AMC’s “The Walking Dead”.

We’ve added the covers below, while we also have a taste of new showrunner Scott M. Gimple teasing the series’ “new threat.”

The new threat is something you can’t just stab in the face,” Gimple says. “You can’t talk sense to it. You can’t make a truce with it. It’s beyond all that. It would be a threat in any world, but in this world it is much more terrifying.

If I had to guess, M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening takes place in the same world as “The Walking Dead”, and this new threat is the wind (clearly, I’m joking).

“The Walking Dead” returns this October to AMC.

    Judging by the afore-released picture of Darryl with his face covered, I would have to assume there is some form of virus (ebola?) going to hit the prison camp. This was not in the comics, but I would like to see some more separation to keep me guessing each week.

    Wildgator, I think you are on to something! That makes a lot of sense and just imagine how it would affect the camp. When I first read that statement from Gimple, I was trying to think what it could be. Your speculation makes perfect sense. Wow, it would really suck to survive a year plus in a ZA, only to be taken out by a virus.

      It also could be one other thing, that is in the comics, but I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn’t read the comics. For those who have, it was what brought on the demise of Dale (in the comics).

      (This could just be a play on words and the “disease” that the ******* {spoiler, thus why asterisked} have is what Gimple is hinting at.)
