‘The Walking Dead’ season 4: Norman Reedus, hype-master extreme

Norman Reedus -Just in case you needed an extra reason to be excited for “The Walking Dead’s” season 4 premiere (which we are pretty sure that you did not), we bring you some more words from a man who certainly understands what it means to have a high-quality program: Norman Reedus. He has been on the show since the beginning, and has seen the rise and fall of different showrunners, different settings, and of course plenty of characters. Therefore, we treat his word as something serious, even if he is paid to star in and promote the show.

But with this comment via E! News, we are inclined to say that Norman really is speaking from his heart:

“This season’s by far the best season. The writing is by far the best writing we’ve ever had. This season’s nuts. It’s going to blow people away.”

The reasons to zombie-crawl to the nearest TV set on October 13 are numerous, and they begin of course with the characters that you already know and love. Then, you add to that the new faces that you are going to meet, some of the relentless action, and the presence of a new sort of threat that is somewhat more “natural” than anything that we have seen so far. The end result of all this could be 16 episodes that really do have you at the edge of your seat.

One of the other reasons for the success of this show? They have at least been very much aware that there is such a thing as overkill. In airing only six months a year, and last airing in the spring, enough time has passed for viewers to miss the show, and want to come back. The only problem here is that there is a “companion series” being planned by Robert Kirkman that may give veiwers a bit of a zombie overload.
