The Walking Dead's third season may have come to a dark conclusion almost two months ago but AMC decided to release one photo of from the zombie laced series' fourth season last week.

AMC's photo from the hit series has Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) wandering through a wooded area while a blurred zombie looks on. 

Season three's final episode featured the *SPOILER* suicide of Andrea who was bitten by a zombified Milton. Andrea then kills Milton. *END SPOILER*

Though the series has been one of the most watched cable shows, there have been turbulent issues behind the scenes. The original executive responsible for bringing Robert Kirkman's comic book to life was ousted by the network and show-runner Glen Mazzara left the series after falling out with AMC about the show's future. Scott M. Gimple who wrote Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and five episodes of The Walking Dead will be taking over the series starting with season four. 

"I'm thrilled to continue the tradition of the spectacular, cinematic, horrifying, exciting and emotional storytelling of The Walking Dead. I'm a huge fan of the comics, and started with the show on the other side of the set, as an avid viewer," Gimple explains in a statement to TVLine. "Over the past two years, it's been an incredible privilege making such great television with the best cast and crew I've ever worked with - I can't wait to make some more."

Joining the cast for season four will be The Wire's Larry Gilliard Jr. who will play former army medic Bob. Gillard's previous credits include The Machinist, Gangs of New York and Southland. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bob is haunted by his past both before and after the apocalypse and is responsible for saving the Governor's life after Michonne (Danai Guria) tortured him.

Season four of The Walking Dead will begin airingin October.
