‘The Walking Dead’ season 4 spoilers: Robert Kirkman on state of prison, character stories

The Walking DeadWhen “The Walking Dead” season 4 picks up this October, Robert Kirkman is of the belief that there is one change that should resonate fairly quickly to all readers: This is going to be much more of a character story than it ever was before. If you enjoy that side of the show more so than anything else, you are probably going to love the story that is coming up. Will there still be action? Definitely, but probably not on the same level and frequency as what we saw with the end of the Glen Mazzara era.

In speaking more about some general details concerning this season as a part of an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Kirkman had the following details to share:

“There’s going to be a bit of a time jump. Some time has passed between season three and season four. It’s only a few months, we’re not nailing down the exact number of days or anything like that. The prison that we see is a very different prison and the characters that we see are very different from the last time we saw them. We go into season four with characters you’ve known for four years and still find new things to explore with them and new aspects of their character and see that they are growing and changing in extremely dramatic ways due to the strains that this world has put upon them.”

As for some other more-specific scoop, Kirkman teases that we are going to see Michonne “on a mission” this season when it comes to how she reacts to the death of Andrea, and that Bob (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) is going to be very much the same sort of character that we saw from him in the comics. Given how many changes have been made from the source material at this point, we’re sure some loyalists out there are going to actually appreciate some things staying the same.
