The summer is in full swing and so is production on the fourth season of "The Walking Dead." It's already July. As the days count down to the show's October return, more information from the set paints a picture of what the forthcoming season will look like. Cast tweets, interviews, behind-the-scene videos and more are exactly what fans need to keep up with their favorite characters during the offseason. One character, however, has evaded the spoiler scope. He's one of the most terrifying and prolific characters of season 3, so naturally fans are eager to see how he evolves in season 4, but as of yet, his fate is shrouded in mystery.
"I don't know. I don't know," said producer David Alpert when asked about The Governor's future. "Is he in the show? Is he not in the show? Who knows?" David Morrissey, who plays The Governor, will return to the show for its fourth season, however, to what capacity remains unclear.
"What happened at the end of season 3? He went kind of crazy, don't you think?" Alpert said. "So he might have an army, or he might be living out alone in the woods. We don't know. You'll have to wait until October to find out."
Regardless of The Governor's fate, it's clear that the new season will be a nail biter with new showrunner Scott Gimple taking the reins.
"I think it's going to be bigger, better, meaner," Alpert said. "I think we saw the evolution of the threat. I think sort of as society begins to come back together and disintegrate at the same time, there's going to be more of [the threat of man]... We're going to explore those themes in ways that have yet to be explored. We're going to get a whole new direction coming up in season 4."
"The Walking Dead" will return to AMC on October 13.
