We're just over a week away from 'The Walking Dead' season 4 with October 13 premiere "30 Days Without An Accident," and the new season still feels like something of a mystery under new showrunner Scott Gimple. Recently from the AMC drama's Atlanta set, however, the showrunner had plenty new details to offer on 'The Walking Dead' season 4, including a stronger focus on character and a hint of where we'll finally see the Governor again!

Though we can personally guarantee that the first two episodes of the coming season shamble out some devastating action sequences (of particular highlight is the climax of the premiere), Gimple previewed that the coming season would see a "quieter approach," telling TVGuide, "The theme for this season is, 'Are we too far gone? Can we go back to the people we were? Can we enjoy life, have close relationships, and can we even love anymore?'"

Amid the character exploration, increased use of flashback and narrative device to tell the story, series star Andrew Lincoln offered that we'll see a "much quieter season and very much more about the character development." So where's the threat, and especially the wayward Governor? It may take a while to find out for sure, but producers confirm we'll learn what the deposed Woodbury leader has been up to in two flashback episodes later on in the season.

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. The aforementioned David Morrissey has been upgraded to series regular, though beyond this season his involvement seems unlikely.

While we wait for the latest news of the premiere, check out the newest trailer and give us your predictions for 'The Walking Dead' season 4!
