The Walking Dead tale will take a turn when it returns for the second half of season 4. The prison is gone, the residents are separated, and some are likely dead. The months of safety at the prison was taken away from them and the survivors were forced into the world full of deadly walkers.
AMC has released a new trailer, which includes footage from the new episodes and interviews with the show's cast and executive producers.
From the looks of trailer, fans will be left on the edge of their seats with worry for the survival of their favorite survivors. Who will live out in the world? And, who will die?
The prison has fallen and the group is separated to the point where it's not clear who survived and who died in the fight. Rick and Carl get away and the father says to his son, "Don't look back."
The prison is in their past. Now, they have to find a new way to survive. From the clip, we also know that Michonne, Maggie, Daryl, Tyreese, Beth, and the girls have made it out. They are all struggling.
Michonne has trouble finding peace after being so close to Hershel's execution. She looks almost broken. Maggie turns her grief into anger. And, Glenn's status is unknown. He was on the bus that had bullets flying into it.
Are the two young sisters out on their own? Lizzie's definitely a formidable, but can she protect her younger sister, Mika? They will definitely be two to watch.
Dave Alpert, executive producer, says "It's going to be about how do we get everybody back together, how do we stay safe, and how do we find sanctuary." Is a safe haven even a possibility in the zombie apocalypse?
"It's a terrifying world that we inhabit again," says Andrew Lincoln. He continues later in the clip, "Feels like a whole new season. We're moving into a much more psychological horror."
Rick is "physically battered, but also psychologically bereft. You see a man who is very, very scared."
Will Carl become the caretaker of the family? He has the strength and perseverance to do it. We see Carl taking the lead, while his father trails behind him.
People on foot trying to reunite, but they are weakened because split up. At least a few people must reconnect as Greg Nicotero, teases, "What's really great about the second half is there are really personal moments between our characters."
"I think it's going to be exciting to see what they do after they've lost everything," says Denise Huth.
The Walking Dead season 4 returns on Sunday, February 9 at 9 pm ET on AMC.
