Little Carl Grimes sure has grown up! Also revealed by executive producer Greg Nicotero is that the season 4 premiere will feature 150 Walkers! Fellow executive producer Scott Gimple also drops a cryptic hint about the "mother nature" threat that will feature this season that now leads me to believe that it's not actually the weather that will be plaguing Rick's band of survivors but disease. Said Gimple, "The new threat is something you can’t just stab in the face. 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." The lead in for that quote is that the threat described is located inside the walls of the prison.

"The Walking Dead, the most watched drama in basic cable history, returned for an exhilarating third season on Sun., Oct. 14, 2012 at 9/8c. In this uncertain world, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his band of survivors must not only fight the dead, but also face a whole new fear: the living. A 16 episode season, the series Entertainment Weekly called the "greatest thriller ever produced for television' will air in two parts, with the first eight hours kicking off October 14 and returning February 2013 with the final eight episodes.

In the highly anticipated third season, Rick and his fellow survivors continue to seek refuge in a desolate and post-apocalyptic world and soon discover that there are greater forces to fear than just the walking dead. The struggle to survive has never been so perilous. Season 3 also introduces new characters, including the Governor (David Morrissey) and fan-favorite Michonne (Danai Gurira), along with her zombie pets.

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead stars Lincoln, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Chandler Riggs, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, IronE Singleton, Melissa McBride, Morrissey and Gurira. The series is executive produced by showruner Glen Mazzara, Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert with Greg Nicotero, Denise Huth and Evan Reilly as co-executive producers.

The Walking Dead reigns as the most watched drama series on basic cable for Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54.

Carl's getting old
SpectacularJoShFest - 7/17/2013, 6:35 AM
Carl looking that old reminds me of Walt in LOST...but they got rid of Walt when he started looking older, I don't think they'll do the same with Carl.
ekrolo2 - 7/17/2013, 6:38 AM
Isn't there gonna be a time skip like in the start of S3 to explain why Carl is getting older?
richardhole - 7/17/2013, 6:43 AM
Carl is going to lose an eye, I can feel it.
blvdnoise - 7/17/2013, 6:46 AM
My man Carl with his mean mug. lol I love it..
storyteller - 7/17/2013, 6:50 AM
Seriously if the show keeps going Carl is going to be like 6 ft tall. He is right at the age where mother nature gives you an upgrade in all your stats.

marvel72 - 7/17/2013, 7:03 AM

richardhole - 7/17/2013, 7:12 AM
The whole show has kind of lost my interest... I get that it's intentionally different from the book for but good grief!
pud333 - 7/17/2013, 7:20 AM
When are they going to kill Carl? Man, I hate that kid.
gaikinger - 7/17/2013, 7:27 AM
I'm more worried about the age progression of Bran and Aria on Game of Thrones
fettastic - 7/17/2013, 7:41 AM
I agree Carl is very annoying.
sups92 - 7/17/2013, 7:48 AM

Jaspion - 7/17/2013, 7:50 AM
Carl was annoying, now he is Shane.
HeadPool420 - 7/17/2013, 8:28 AM
Haha those made me laugh. Specially Daryl on the bike sitting still trying to flex his muscles.
Kyos - 7/17/2013, 8:51 AM
I gotta agree with that TWD ranking, MAC.
GreenHalJordan - 7/17/2013, 9:13 AM
I actually think Carl got less annoying by the end of season 3...Let's hope he continues with that pattern!
MightyZeus - 7/17/2013, 10:47 AM
No Michonne? Aww man.
Rick look's like he's about to bust a cap in someone's ass.
macfint - 7/17/2013, 2:07 PM
to all u dopes. Carl kicks ass, and is a talented actor. Darrel is flexing cause he was told to. Rick's watch is him holding on to humanity. I'm more of a Shane.
dkhager - 7/17/2013, 4:25 PM
carl is great..one of my favorite characters in the show and especially in the comics..love what theyre doing with him and cant wait to see more..plus riggs has become a solid actor from season 1..which can be hard for some people..when he was brought on he was just a kid..but now that theyre moving along he had to become what the show needed...and he did..very cool..again cant wait
SuperiorMrGod - 7/17/2013, 10:19 PM
Carl is awesome in the comics, not so much in the show. But a teenage Carl has peaked my intrest.
SuperiorMrGod - 7/17/2013, 10:19 PM
Not a pedophile BTW
