Andrew previews what’s ahead for the survivors when ‘The Walking Dead’ returns Oct. 13!
With only six days until The Walking Dead‘s fourth season premiere, fans are chomping at the bit for new episodes. And why shouldn’t they be? Based on everything we’ve heard so far, season four is going to be the AMC drama’s biggest, baddest yet. But as star Andrew Lincoln points out in a new interview, ‘bigger’ isn’t necessarily better — at least not for the survivors.
“There’s around about 50 new characters, which puts obviously an enormous amount of pressure on the group with the practical necessities of food and water,” Andrew tells Entertainment Weekly. ”It is a third-world environment that we’re existing in now.”
Andrew Lincoln: ‘Group Dynamics Have Changed Radically’
And along with practical concerns, a larger cast in season four will also bring about major relational conflicts between the survivors. (What, did you really expect people to get along?)
“We were a band of maybe 10 characters at the end of last season, so the character relationships and the group dynamics have changed radically,” Andrew explains. “There are always going to be tensions within the group … and you find us in a place where people are trying to wrestle with those problems as well as, obviously, the pressure of the walkers and survival.”
