AMC’s The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman announced that the scattered survivors of the recently disbanded group will face their toughest challenges yet in the second half of the fourth season.

The survivors, which (spoilers) include Rick, Carl, Daryl, Maggie, Glenn and Michonne amongst others, will no doubt find trouble in the walker-ridden pastures.

"They're definitely in the most dangerous position that they've been in yet,” Kirkman said, “which is where all of the characters are coming out of this episode.”

Kirkman also commented on the nature of character development in the second half of the season.

"We do some really interesting changes in these characters as they're put to the test and have to decide what they're willing to do to survive,” he said, “ which is what The Walking Dead is all about.”

The Walking Dead will return for episode 9 on Feb. 4.
