Next week, AMC will bring the cast of The Walking Dead to San Diego to show off Season 4 at Comic-Con. To hold us over until then, a brand new photo from the upcoming season has been released, giving us a new look at Daryl Dixon.
The 16-episode fourth season is once again filming in Georgia, with the first episode expected to premiere in October. As previously reported, Glen Mazzara stepped down as the showrunner of The Walking Dead and Scott M. Gimple has been promoted to showrunner and executive producer for Season 4. Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse were also promoted to executive producers this season.
For those that missed the previous Season 4 casting news, Lawrence Gilliard Jr. has joined the cast as a series regular and will be playing Bob Stookey, a character from the comic book series. Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Emily Kinney have been promoted to “series regular” status. While it means that they will be featured prominently in Season 4, the “series regular” status does not mean that they cannot be killed. It has also been confirmed that David Morrissey signed on for Season 4 as a series regular. Previously, he had only committed to a single season of The Walking Dead.
