The Walking Dead‘s main competition for Sunday night ratings, when it aired in the fall, was the NFL. With the regular season over, there’s nothing stopping these zombies from eating everything in sight.
The second half of Season 4 starts Feb. 9 on AMC, with the survivors scattered all over. There are no GPS devices anymore, so a walk to the corner store can be deadly. Also, that store will likely not have any Cheetos left.
The Governor’s attack on the prison changed the group forever. But as Rick mentioned beforehand, some of the people were still sick. Not only is the group on the run, some of the survivors are likely infected. The walkers are a problem, but far from the only one. They may not even be the biggest problem.
It has been an unbelievable four seasons. The Walking Deadhas become Sunday night’s highest-rated show, gotten a spinoff and brought Dish Network to its knees in AMC contract negotiations. What hurdles will it clear next? We’re about to find out.
