Season four of ‘The Walking Dead’ premiers on Sunday night, and the biggest question on fans’ minds at this point is how the writers will incorporate all of the new characters that were added in the Season 3 finale.
Over the past few years, writers have been prone to not filling out supporting characters the way they probably should during that fun time between when new characters are introduced, and when they are inevitably chomped to bits by zombies.
This week, at NY Comic-Con, Michael Cudlitz announced that he would be joining 'The Walking Dead' in Season 4 as Sgt. Abraham Ford. He along with Josh McDermitt, who will play Eugene Porter, will be loosely based on their namesakes from Robert Kirkman’s comic book series.
However, much as was the case with Andrea, The Governor, and so on and so forth – the characters will be adjusted a tad bit for the viewing audience.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Scott Gimple admitted that he doesn’t plan to follow Kirman’s script exactly.
“We’re going to tell a version of the Eugene, Abraham and Rosita comic stories,” he said. “That’s what we do. I love those characters from the book, they are very different flavors of comic book characters than we’ve seen on the show.”
