As before, the Chris Hardwick-hosted live after show "Talking Dead" will air following the new episodes at 10pm. Scott M. Gimple takes over as showrunner of "The Walking Dead" this season, previous showrunner Glen Mazzara having late last year announced his plans to depart after the end of season three. (The show's become somewhat infamous for the amount of turnover with its showrunners -- it was initially headed up by Frank Darabont, who left/was ousted after the first season.) Here's the network's description of "The Walking Dead" season four:
In the highly anticipated new season, we find Rick (Andrew Lincoln) 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 no match for danger 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 perilous. Season 4 also introduces several new characters including Bob Stookey (Lawrence Gilliard Jr., "The Wire").
