Robert Kirkman Teases "Radical Changes" In Season Four Of THE WALKING DEAD
Talking more about season four of The Walking Dead, executive producer and writer Robert Kirkman teases the evolution of characters such as Carl Grimes and The Governor, while also promising plenty of other "radical changes" when the AMC series returns this October.
In an interview with IGN TV to discuss the shocking season three finale of The Walking Dead this past Sunday, creator Robert Kirkman has dropped more hints about what we should expect from the show when it returns later this year. There's plenty of intriguing hints and details here, although we shouldn't expect anything too concrete until the first trailer is unveiled at this year's San Diego Comic Con. Below are a few highlights from this latest Q&A. The full version can of course be found by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page! What are you most excited to see?
On How Big Of A Role The Governor Will Play In Season Four:
"Yeah, he’s still very much in the mix. That’s certainly not the last that we’ll see of him. When we see him again and where we see him again, that’s the big question. It’s not going to be like it was in Season 3; it’s not going to be Rick and the Governor on a collision course with a conflict between them. He’ll be used in very different ways next season."
On Where We Will Pick Up With Rick And Carl When The Series Returns:
"Rick has had a success. The people at the prison have survived this conflict with the Governor, he brought people from Woodbury into the prison, and he’s kind of had this big win. He’s had this moment where he’s brought people together and he’s doing good things. But he’s had this tremendous loss in that Carl has lost this piece of his humanity. This has been Rick’s main mission throughout the show, to protect his family. We’ve seen two very big failures on that front this season. Moving into next season, we’re going to see a very different Rick, but one of his main goals is to manage this situation with Carl and see if he can bring him back from this darkness that’s crept into him. Whether or not he’s able to do that, we’ll have to see. But this is a big change in the character of Carl, but it’s something that’s going to be weighing heavily on Rick next season."
On Whether We Will Now See The Relationship Between Rick And Tyreese Develop:
"Yeah, I think that really is something that comic book fans can use to kind of draw out some information on where we might be going with Season 4. Now that these two characters are together and are on the same side, we will see a little bit more of that comic book relationship that fans are familiar with creeping into the show."
On What The Woodbury Residents Moving To The Prison Will Mean:
"A bigger group brings with it bigger problems. They are certainly going to need a lot more resources, and they already have a lot of rebuilding to do, just from the things that happened in this battle between Woodbury and the prison. I don’t think there’s going to be a shortage of conflict and danger coming into the fourth season, despite the fact that they are still in the prison."
On What We Should Expect From Season Four Of The Walking Dead:
"I’ll say that there are a lot of familiar elements that are remaining. Michonne is still around, Rick and his group are still in the prison, the Governor’s still out there… so there are a lot of things that are carrying over from Season 3 to Season 4, but I can’t stress how different things are going to be. There are going to be some radical changes to those elements that are going to bring in a lot of new storytelling. While [Season 4] does seem somewhat familiar, it’s going to be vastly different from Season 3."
