“Walking Dead” season 4 returns on Sunday with episode 9, titled “After.”
The show will air at 9 p.m. ET (6 p.m. PT) on AMC.
The official description of episode 9 is as follows:
“As Rick deals with old wounds, members of the prison have to come to terms with their new environment and ask themselves if survival alone is enough.”
The official description for the rest of the season is as follows:
“Following the devastating events of the mid-season finale, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the group are still reeling from the loss of their home, family and friends. With the destruction of the prison, the group of survivors is broken apart and sent on divergent paths, unsure of everyone else’s fate. What was a challenging life behind fences and walls grows that much more perilous and precious as they are exposed to new dangers, new enemies and heartbreaking choices. They will have their faith thoroughly tested — a faith that breaks some of them and redeems others.”
After tonight’s episode, the season will last through March 30.
Keep an eye out on Norman Reedus on Twitter; he’s slated to do a live Q & A in the hours leading up to the premiere.
The show has already been renewed for a season 5, which is expected to begin airing sometime in 2015.
