AMC’s breakout hit The Walking Dead will get back to its weekly hour of scares and drama on October 13th and as it draws closer, fans’ anticipation for the return continues to grow.

While this recently released poster doesn’t give fans much to be excited about it, one detail that is particularly important is that the prison fence has now been torn down, revealing to audiences that the safety of the prison walls is no longer guaranteed.

In addition to the poster, AMC has also released the following video of series creator Robert Kirkman as he gives fans a tour of the Season 4 set, including new additions to the prison.  While it may not give much away in terms of what to expect from the upcoming season, it does give fans plenty of information to start formulating their own ideas.
