It seemed like it was yesterday The Walking Dead returned for a triumphant third season. Now they’re back for number four, and the first reviews are in. The verdict so far?
This is a remarkable claim, because season three was a critical and ratings powerhouse. If The Walking Dead is indeed getting better each season, it’s amazing to see a show only getting stronger with age.
The Wall Street Journal also pointed out that this season will have deeper character development, with the headline, “New Season of The Walking Dead Reveals Characters’ Softer Side.” Executive Producer Robert Kirkman told the Journal, “There’s a lot more emotion being drilled into these stories now. Some of this stuff may have gotten glossed over in previous seasons. This is a more intensely character-focused season. That said, it isn’t necessarily going to be a quieter season.”
