In a new interview, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd revealed that they will implement a time jump in season four of ‘The Walking Dead.’ Keep reading for all the details!
Time jumps can be extremely beneficial to an aging series. One Tree Hill successfully skipped over the dreaded college years and, in turn, continued for five more seasons! While The Walking Dead doesn’t necessarily need a creative boost (it averaged 11.4 million viewers this season), and it’s not yet aging, the series is still fast forwarding at the start of season four!

At the end of season three, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) welcomed the ex-Woodbury group into the prison, sending Carl (Chandler Riggs) into a frenzy of frustration. Many questions were left unanswered, but thankfully, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd is speaking out on all things season four!
IGN talked to Gale, and she said that each season presents a new vision of the dual sides of leadership (Shane/Rick, Hershel/Rick, The Governor/Rick), just with different leaders and new locations/settings. However, this time around, the governor is still very present in the continuing storyline. He’ll appear in season four as a series regular. So will this new development change the tone and direction of season four in regards to the previous pattern?
“I don’t think it’s changing it,” Gale said. “Every season, yes, there will more than likely be a passage of time. It’s unlikely to follow directly after the end of this episode.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should The Walking Dead do a time jump for season four? Shooting for season four will approximately start in May, and it will premere in October on AMC.
