‘The Walking Dead’ Season 4 Announced By Telltale Games
The Movie God   |  

Telltale's The Walking Dead - Clementine

Telltale Games made a few big announcements this week, the biggest (for me anyway) being the long-awaited new season of The Wolf Among Us. But they had something for fans of The Walking Dead, as well.

The news regarding their fan-favorite take on Robert Kirkman’s hit comic book series comes in both good and bad flavors, unfortunately. The good news is that we won’t have to wait a while to find out if a new season of the point-and-click series is on the way, as we did for the recently concluded third season, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier. Telltale has confirmed that a season four is officially on the way for 2018. The bad news however, is that this new season will also be the final season.

Continue below to check out the video announcing the final season.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Season 7 of The Walking Dead began back in October in a most brutal manner: depicting the violent deaths of two main characters, one of whom was much beloved and was with the show from the very beginning. It also thrust Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s villainous Negan to the forefront of the story, showing viewers that no one on the show is safe. With a few swings of his barbed-wire-wrapped baseball bat “Lucille,” Negan ended Rick’s and the Alexandrians’ way of life in an instant, forcing them into subservience and an existence shrouded in fear. Watching our favorite characters, who were always so strong now, living in this new way has been difficult. Thankfully, halfway through the season, Rick finally came to his senses and rallied not only his troops against Negan and the Saviors, but also those from other colonies: The Hilltop, The Kingdom, and The Scavengers, with the possibility of the Oceanside community joining the fray.

Last week’s episode was the fifteenth of the season, and it saw the Alexandrians invade the Oceanside community as non-violently as possible for their guns. At the Hilltop, Maggie was slowly but surely emerging as the new leader, inadvertently pushing aside figurehead Gregory, who we last saw making plans to travel to the Sanctuary to get help with that situation. At the Sanctuary, Negan was holding Sasha captive, trying to get the Alexandrian to join him against Rick. Sasha had no intention of doing that, and instead tried to get Eugene to get her a weapon to kill Negan, tricking her old friend into thinking she was going to use it to end her own life. And at Alexandria, Rosita had returned with a most unexpected companion — Dwight, one of the Saviors from Negan’s close group. While it was dangerous for Dwight to show up there, especially since he had tormented Daryl at Negan’s bidding, the Savior is ready to help Rick and company take down Negan.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s The Walking Dead caught us up on what’s been happening at the Hilltop Colony, where original Alexandrians Maggie and Sasha have been hiding out and training the residents to fight for their upcoming battle against Negan and the Saviors. Early on, Sasha and Rosita took off on their own mission to take down Negan. When they got to the Sanctuary, they found that their old friend Eugene had gone from abductee to commander at Negan’s compound, and when they tried to rescue him, he turned tail and ran back, not wanting to leave his new cushy situation. After that, Sasha decided to take on the mission solo, leaving Rosita reluctantly behind so that she can be there for the Alexandrians. The episode ended with Rosita spotting a shadowy figure with a crossbow nearby.

On this week’s episode, 7.15 “Something They Need,” Tara has revealed to Rick the existence of the Oceanside community, which is the group of women whose men were all killed by the Saviors. Rick and crew are making plans now to journey there to get the women to join them in their fight against Negan and the Saviors.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s The Walking Dead took us back to King Ezekiel and The Kingdom, where a routine tribute drop with the Saviors resulted in the death of one of their own after Richard took matters into this own hands. Richard wanted to provoke the Saviors into killing him so that Ezekiel would be prompted to join Rick in his fight to defeat Negan. But young Benjamin ended up being the one killed. In a shocking turn of events, Morgan abandoned his “all life is sacred” creed when he killed Richard with his bare hands because of what happened with Benjamin. But, in the end, Richard’s plan worked: Not only is Ezekiel now ready to fight, but Carol is joining the fray now that she knows what Negan really did to the Alexandrians.

This week’s episode, 7.14 “The Other Side,” goes back to the Hilltop Colony, opening on a few days prior to when Rosita shows up to get Sasha to accompany her on a mission to kill Negan or die trying. We see the Hilltop people making weapons and practicing fighting, as pregnant Maggie mades plans for battle, while the community’s official leader Gregory remains hidden in his office. We also see Daryl at the colony keeping to himself. The opening sequence ends with Rosita going to Sasha, which we saw in a previous episode.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s The Walking Dead showed us Rick and Michonne on their road-trip honeymoon of sorts, where their romantic excursion was peppered with Walker attacks, but ended with a major score of food and weapons. But the weapons were not enough for their Heapster allies to start up the fight against Negan and the Saviors, so Rick and crew will be off again to find more guns. But before that happens, it looks like Tara will be confessing to Rick about the Oceanside community, who are potential allies for them against Negan. Meanwhile, frenemies Rosita and Sasha have made a pact — they’re off to kill Negan or die trying.

For this week’s episode, 7.13 “Bury Me Here,” we leave the Alexandrians and return to King Ezekiel and The Kingdom, which includes Morgan and also Carol in her nearby cottage.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s The Walking Dead backtracked to show us what happened after Eugene’s capture from Alexandria by Negan. The Saviors brought the cowardly man back to the Sanctuary, and instead of throwing him into a cell, they gave some very accommodating living quarters. There, Eugene learns that Negan has grand plans for his big brains, as do Negan’s plotting wives. He learns firsthand what happens when someone isn’t loyal to Negan. In the end, he comes to appreciate his newfound standing at the Sanctuary, and when asked by Negan who he is, Eugene quickly replies correctly, “I am Negan,” solidifying his place at the Sanctuary.

This week’s episode, 7.12 “Say Yes,” follows Rick and Michonne out on the road looking for guns to bring back to the Heapsters, who had promised to help Rick fight the Saviors if he supplied them with the weapons. We see the couple finding few supplies and then making love, showing that even during these desperate times, they are enjoying their time alone together. They eventually come upon two Saviors playing golf in the road, and manage to steal some of their provisions before driving away undetected.

AMC
Air Date: Sunday, February 26, 2017

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s The Walking Dead was all about Rick trying to get various groups to join his fight against Negan and the Saviors. The Hilltop colony and the Kingdom both turned him down, as they were too scared to mess up the respective agreements they have with the Saviors. But then Rick and crew went searching for Father Gabriel, who’d been captured by a new group, the Heapsters, who Rick — after successfully surviving a feat of strength — convinced to join him. Their leader, Jadis, is a hard woman of few words, but it was clear that she’s no one to be trifled with. But Rick was just happy to have the numbers, and he smiled his way through their entire encounter.

On this week’s episode, 7.11 “Hostiles and Calamities,” we return back to Negan and the Sanctuary, in a storyline that picks up right after Daryl’s escape. Dwight, who was guarding Daryl, finds his captive’s darkened cell empty and then his own room ransacked, with a note left behind reading “Go now” in script. He realizes what’s happened just as his door is broken in and he’s beaten down by his own comrades as Negan, with his bat Lucille in hand, looks on.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

On last week’s mid-season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead, Rick and some of his crew from Alexandria went to both the Hilltop colony and the Kingdom to get the two communities to join his fight against Negan and the Saviors. But both of those groups turned Rick down, fearing that they’d lose if they went up against the Saviors. It seemed like the Alexandrians would remain on their own. When they returned home, they find their pantry has been emptied and Father Gabriel is gone. At first, it seemed as if Gabriel made off with everything and abandoned them, but Rick knows better. He found a clue left behind – the word “Boat,” and figured out that he must return to the boat area where they’d recently found supplies. When they arrive back to the area, they are surrounded by a new group of people carrying weapons. But Rick wasn’t afraid; instead, he smiled.

In the latest episode, 7.10 “New Best Friends,” we find out why Rick was smiling and what happened to Father Gabriel, as well as what’s happening back at the Kingdom and with the self-exiled Carol.

The Walking Dead
Episode 7.9 “Rock in the Road”
Directed by Angela Kang

AMC
Air Date: Sunday, February 12, 2017

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

The first part of Season 7 of The Walking Dead was a tough one to get through, as it began with the brutal death of two main characters, including one who was extremely popular with fans. All of this was at the hands of the new bad guy in town, Negan, who proved in eight episodes that he was bigger and badder than any other villain that Rick and the gang have come up against before. Week after week, we watched as Rick yielded to Negan’s sadistic will and his group at Alexandria became subjugated to The Saviors.

The 90-minute mid-season 7 finale, Episode 7.8 “Hearts Still Beating,” which aired back in December, finally brought us hope that Rick and his crew might be able to rise above once more. Daryl escaped his dark cell at Negan’s Sanctuary compound, and he and Jesus make it to the Hilltop Colony, where Maggie, Sasha and Enid were holed up. At the episode’s end, we see the aforementioned characters greet Rick and his crew — Tara, Michonne, Rosita, and Carl — who have arrived to make a plan to stop Negan, which will include a possible team-up with King Ezekiel and The Kingdom, and perhaps even with the women of the Oceanside colony.
