AMC just aired a short, exclusive new sneak peak at Season 4 of “The Walking Dead”, which depicts Michonne (Danai Gurira) riding her new horse, Flame, into battle with zombies.
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, “The Walking Dead” tells the story of a group of survivors who travel in search of a safe and secure home in the months and years following a zombie apocalypse. The series stars Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Emily Kinney.
“One of the most compelling images is Michonne finding a new and possibly a lot more reliable type of transportation,” executive producer Gale Anne Hurd told EW last week. “With gas at a premium, with the fact that vehicles break down, I think we would return to the days of horseback riding and you can graze them as you go in a place like Georgia. You don’t have to carry food for them. They feed themselves, so to speak. It goes along with the new approach this season of sustainability. With a horse, you can go through the woods. You can get around obstacles. You can’t do that in a vehicle. If a tree falls and blocks the road, you can’t go through the forest. You’re not going to make it through. It’s actually much more of a useful choice. Not only that, but Michonne looks so badass on it.”
Season 4 of “The Walking Dead” returns to AMC in October 13 at 9pm ET.
