The show’s characters and situations catapulted audiences into our world in a dramatic and explosive fashion,” said Greg Nicotero, Executive Producer, Director and Special Effects Makeup Supervisor for “The Walking Dead.” “Scott Gimple at the helm solidified the show as a powerhouse of raw emotion, fear and suspense… constantly asking ourselves ‘what would we do to survive?’”, he added.
In the highly anticipated Season Four, we find Rick and the group fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison. Sadly, in this brutal world, happiness is short-lived and walkers and outside threats are as dangerous as what is brewing inside the fences. The group’s home and new way of life will be thoroughly tested, and their struggle to survive has never been so terrifying.

The show has always embraced its characters and found some astonishing actors to portray those parts.
