'Walking Dead' Season 4 preview video: Greg Nicotero directing premiere, written by Scott Gimple
"The Walking Dead" returns to AMC this fall but the cast and crew are already hard at work on the new episodes.
The network has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette with the show's executive producers explaining how they chose Greg Nicotero to direct the upcoming Season 4 premiere and giving us a few teases for what's ahead.
The season premiere is written by new showrunner Scott Gimple and Nicotero promises fans have a lot to look forward to: "There are new [characters] coming in that I'm really excited about. There's some great character turns. There's a lot of really good twists that will really delight the fans"
Nicotero directed four previous episodes of the series including Season 3's penultimate installment "This Sorrowful Life" -- also written by Gimple -- which revealed the sad fate of Merle Dixon.
"The Walking Dead" Season 4 premieres on AMC in October. Season 3 hits DVD and Blu-ray on August 27.
