‘The Walking Dead’ season 4 update: Robert Kirkman on ‘separation’

The hit show from AMC, The Walking Dead, returns later this month for the last eight episodes of the fourth season.

Michael-Cudlitz-as-Abraham-on-Walking-DeadDuring a Feb. 6 interview with EW, creator Robert Kirkman talks about how and why the tone will be so different in these remaining shows.

” It’s all of our characters scattered to the winds. Everybody’s separated and so we’re actually doing a lot of really intense, character focusing episodes. So because they’re separated there will be episodes that focus on different people. There will be episodes that focus on different groups at a time when they’re in their worst situation yet. We’re really going to really drill down into them and get to know them much more than we’ve gotten to know them before. I think after the end of these eight episodes you’re going to be acutely aware of who these people are and I think they’re going to be some really shocking revelations about what makes people tick and who they really are at their core.”

Kirkman discusses some of the mysteries from the mid-season finale before discussing the new characters: Abraham and Rosita and Eugene

” These characters are going to be extremely similar to who they were in the comics and I’m really excited about that. The visuals and costuming for them has been absolutely amazing. These people really do look like they were torn out of the comic page, it’s pretty startling. But I will say people excited for the introduction of these characters won’t have to wait very long. I don’t want to reveal exactly when they’ll be introduced, but it won’t be too terribly late in the season so get your hopes up. They really are going to add a very interesting and very compelling dynamic to the show. I think they’re going to bring in elements to the show that we’ve never really explored before and I think that’s exciting and something that’s going to change the game to a certain extent. I’m always very excited at how much this show evolves over time and changes season to season and these three characters are agent that very much changes the story and very much changes the direction of the show to a certain extent.”
