With The Walking Dead heading into its fourth season tomorrow, a new threat Rick and his group will be facing has become known.
It's been said the new threat will not come from the outside, but from the inside of The Prison.
The new threat?
It's the flu.
Via TV Guide:
Kirkman: Mother Nature is rearing it's ugly head at a time when we're completely incapable of combating it. This new threat is this Spanish flu-type sickness that is ravaging these people. That's really wrecking things for them. Aside from having The Governor (David Morrissey) looming on the horizon or any other kind of human threat that is out there, or zombies — which is something they're always fighting — they've also got to deal with this thing, which is possibly more deadly than anything they've faced yet.
Gimple: As far within the prison, there's a threat that doesn't come from the outside world, it comes from within the prison. We have a whole panel of threats this season. A virtual smorgasbord of threats.
"The Walking Dead" Season 4 premiers Sunday, October 13th at 9pm ET on AMC.
