New ‘Walking Dead’ Trailers Bring “Prey for the Dead,” Plus ‘The Oath’ Webisode Preview!
Less than two weeks will bring ‘The Walking Dead‘ season 4 premiere, “30 Days Without an Accident,” but the latest trailers for AMC’s survival horrorfest have us wondering if Rick and his group will survive even that long. Not only that, but the first official sneak peek of ‘Walking Dead’ tie-in web series “The Oath” has arrived, with even more walkers shambling about to boot!
As Daryl sighs about losing more people in the first of two brand-new spots for the season, Hershel points out that a recent attack cost them 12 more Woodbury survivors, and potentially made the prison unsafe to occupy. Of course, we’ve seen how much care has been put to fortifying the outside fences, so where might the new walker threat emerge from, if not outside?
Both teasers cleverly utilize the tagline “pray for the dead,” but it isn’t long before good intentions turn to a more ominous “prey for the dead,” similar to last year’s tagline “fight the dead, fear the living.” Elsewhere, Machinima has the first look at executive producer Greg Nicotero’s new web series ‘The Oath.’
While we await the latest details from ‘The Walking Dead’ season 4, the next run of the AMC horror-drama will introduce ‘The Wire’ star Lawrence Gilliard, Jr. as comic character Bob Stookey, ‘Twilight‘ vet Christian Serratos as Rosita Espinosa, Alanna Masterson as a new mystery character and upgrade actors Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green and Emily Kinney to series regulars. David Morrissey’s villainous Governor will also return in season 4 as a series regular, though beyond this season his involvement seems unlikely.
