The Walking Dead returns Fall 2013 on AMC.

Even though it is still a long ways away, with filming underway for Season 4 The Walking Dead we can already put together the beginnings of spoilers about what will be in store.

For one, new showrunner Scott Gimple, who wrote the acclaimed season 3 episode “Clear,’ (where Rick found Morgan) as well as the  season 2 eppy where Sophia was revealed to be a walker, has written the inaugural  episode 401 and Greg Nicotero (!) directs. A spectacular opening action sequence will be part of the action though clues have yet to be offered about what–and who– the action sequence will involve.

Here’s a shot from season 4 of  some walkers being reviewed by Greg Nictoero

The Walking Dead Interview | Gale Anne Hurd (Executive Producer)

The Walking Dead Executive Producer Gale Anne Hurd talks about Season 4′s ravenous new walkers and which characters from the show would make great producers.

Q: Every year the walkers show us something new. What can fans expect from Season 4′s walkers?

A: I think we’ll have walkers who are even more ravenous than before. We’re in a world where there are fewer people and more walkers, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw that on-screen this season.

Q: What’s been one of the biggest challenges of producing a show like The Walking Dead?

A: We have serious weather issues to contend with. We had one day where there was a torrential downpour and a tree fell on the set, so you just have to roll with stuff like that. Other times, you realize that a character that you thought might live actually has to die….

Q: As an Executive Producer, do you have a mantra that guides your work?

A: I think one of my mantras is, “Good enough isn’t.” There’s not one person on the show or behind the cameras who doesn’t embrace that. Sometimes people who’ve worked on other shows come here and are actually shocked that we take a show about a zombie apocalypse so seriously. There is not one character on the show that is the same as the actor portraying them. That’s remarkable.

Q: Which character on the show do you think would make the best producer?

A: Rick Grimes would make a fantastic producer. He always puts the needs of everyone before his own, and that’s what a producer has to do. At the same time, I think that Daryl Dixon has a fantastic ability to just get things done without being asked — another skill set important for producer.
