I am happy to report that Season 4 of AMC’s The Walking Dead is currently in production.
My question is…..what direction will they go for season 4?
Who will be the new leader of the group?
Are the rumors true will Rick die next season?
I read somewhere recently that actor Laurence Gilliard Jr is joining the cast next season.
For those who are not familiar with Laurence,
he portrayed drug dealer D’Angelo Barksdale on HBO’s groundbreaking series The Wire.
( If you have not watched the show, please do. It is truly fantastic.)
Gilliard is the second alum from the series to join The Walking Dead.
Actor Chad Coleman aka Cutty joined earlier in season 3.
His character Tyreese is now a season regular.
As for Laurence Giliard, he will be portraying a character named Bob Stookey.
According to The Walking Dead wiki, this character is a former Army medic and an alcoholic.
He is said to be in his mid fifties/ early sixties.
There are some blogs who predict that some TWD fans will have a problem with the way that this character is translated on-screen.
I strongly disagree considering that at first Tyreese’s character was morphed into Daryl Dixon.
Merle Dixon was a hodgepodge of various characters from the comics.
Jacqui did not exist in the comic book
and Shane did not survive very long in the comic as well.
Many fans have issues with a few changes and additions to the television show in the past few years.
I am excited for the new season to start in October.
Next season is going to be fantastic in my opinion.
I will be attending NYCC this year so I am going to blog a few tidbits about the new season.
My eyes will be open for more info.
Until then readers..
