In the midst of a pretty insane TV schedule this month, it is almost easy to forget about “The Walking Dead” … almost. Season 4 will not be back on the air until mid-October, but the cast and crew are currently getting ready in Atlanta to kick off filming of the sixteen episodes that will once again be split between the fall and the spring.
Several weeks ago, AMC confirmed that production would officially begin on Monday, May 6, and since we’ve heard of no major changes to that date, we still have to assume that this is around the time that it will start up. There also is a very specific window that the show has to keep to, given that there are other commitments that many of the actors and producers have, and they also need the show to wrap around a specific time to make that happen.
In case you haven’t heard some of the basic updates about the episodes ahead, here is quick refresher. Scott M. Gimple is the new showrunner in the place of Glen Mazzara, Sonequa Martin-Green is among the actors to receive series regular promotions, and Larry Gilliard Jr. is among the new cast members (as he will be playing Bob Stookie). There are still more new characters coming on board the show, but they have not been announced as of yet.
As soon as we have some more official updates from the show’s set, whether it be new images or casting updates, we’ll have it for you here. “The Walking Dead” is just one of many shows starting up production this month, as “Homeland” and “Sons of Anarchy” are doing the same thing.
