AMC's 'The Walking Dead' Brings Fanatics Back to Life

walking dead 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (10/9/13) – It's been a long and treachorous journey for characters in AMC's hit television drama 'The Walking Dead'. It's also been a long journey for 'The Walking Dead' fanatics, who have waited since late March to see new episodes of what critics are calling “the king of cable telvision”.

Now, the wait is almost over. 'The Walking Dead' will begin its fourth season this weekend, allowing fans to rejoin Rick, Carl, Glen, Maggie, Michonne and the rest of the cast on their quest for survival in a world where sometimes the living are more dangerous than the zombies, or 'walkers', who roam the earth.

One of the show's fanatics is Randi White. She said the wait for the new season has felt like years, adding she's excited to see what is to come with new showrunner Scott Gimple at the forefront of production.

“There is no greater agony than having to wait for what seems like an eternity to find out what happens next on your favorite show,” said White. “I am beyond excited to see what Mr. Gimple has put together for us this season. I just hope the gang up there at Walking Dead headquarters keeps our zombie slaying sweetheart Daryl Dixon out of harm's way. He's my Justin Timberlake.”

The season three finale left Channing Knipp, another huge fan of the series, on the edge of his seat.

“It's hard to find zombie horror with a great story line, but 'The Walking Dead' is just that and to have it one hour a week is the icing on the cake,” said Knipp. “I can not wait for it to start back. I'm very excited to see what new plot points come up as some of my favorite television characters battle the undead as well as coexist with each other in season four.”

For Cody Porter, 'The Walking Dead' has completely consumed his mind since the season three finale. He's ready to see how Rick, the leader of the gang, takes hold of a new environment within the walls of their prison sanctuary.

“I'm ready to see Rick run the prison,” said Porter. “The Walking Dead is my show. I follow it religiously and don't miss an epidode. For the past six months I've had no television shows to watch because all I think about is what's about to happen next.”

These fanatics are about to get their wish. 'The Walking Dead' will return for its fourth season on Sunday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
