Tv Season Info

The fourth season of The Walking Dead finds Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) desperate to rediscover his own humanity and preserve what he can of his son Carl's (Chandler Riggs) childhood through reinventing himself as a farmer while a counsel including Carol (Melissa McBride) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) in addition to several Woodbury ex-pats take on leadership roles. His newfound sense of peace is quickly derailed, however, when a mysterious illness begins to decimate the community. Elsewhere, the disgraced Governor (David Morrissey) roams the apocalyptic streets on his own until happening upon a family of survivors who reignite both his will to survive and take revenge against Rick, who he blames for the loss of Woodbury. Following a massacre at the prison, the group is splintered into several factions, none of whom can be sure about the fates of the others, and forced to find shelter among a population of survivors that can pose as much and often more of a threat than the walkers themselves.

Critic Reviews for The Walking Dead Season 4

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (17)

Much like updating to a new software on one's phone, Fear has been glitchy, confusing, and it crashes often.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The episode didn't disappoint with its usual over-the-top zombie fight scenes and interesting new twists and turns.

Oct 14, 2013 | Full Review…

It's lethal and funny. Sometimes the new normal looks much like the old.

Oct 10, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

That's where the hope comes in. Because Grimes' struggle is to prove that humanity - not just humans - can survive a zombie apocalypse.

Dec 3, 2013 | Full Review…

I don't want a zombie show with small, lyrical moments.

Oct 25, 2013 | Full Review…

While the mood generally ranges from somber to grim to despairing, the show has its own brand of humor.

Oct 15, 2013 | Full Review…

The whole Walmart-gone-wrong scene was over-the-top and utterly ridiculous - but when's the last time The Walking Dead was that much fun?!!

Oct 14, 2013 | Full Review…

Despite the general calmness of the episode, the season premiere still managed to throw viewers right back into the constant intensity and disparity of the post-apocalyptic world.

Oct 14, 2013 | Full Review…

Much of the premiere's pay off is subtle and very intricately delivered...

Oct 14, 2013 | Full Review…

Fresh blood isn't only welcome and promising from a behind-the-scenes perspective; it can give the onscreen story a sense of vibrancy as well.

Oct 14, 2013 | Full Review…

As a setup for the season, "30 Days Without An Accident" does a good job of throwing the alley-oop pass, it just wasn't the sharpest and most accurate of passes.

Oct 14, 2013 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Either way, this series is always filled with exciting potential. A fair start to what could be an exciting season (watch out for shower walkers!), it's good to see The Walking Dead Season 4 in action.

Audience Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 4

  • Feb 08, 2021
    This season was spectacular and sad at the same time The role that surprised me was that of the governor (David Morrissey), very well interpreted and dark. And the rest is all very good Perfect
  • Jan 11, 2021
    Yeahhhhhh ummmm. . . about 2 hours of material stretched out over 16 episodes. This show is the most drawn out, overrated show I've ever watched. I can deal with the corny drama but can't it be like 10 episodes? Even then it would be a little too long. Hardly anything happens. What does happen is not interesting. Besides, can't these morons figure out how to reinforce a fence at least? At least after 40 hours worth into the show they figured out how to use a knife. Good job you freakin' idiots. Absolutely garbage writing with only a couple reasonably good character actors. It's all angst and no horror. It's great if you want to see people wandering around the same patch of woods from season to season. They're also some very anti-climactic "reveals" about some of the main characters that are sooooo lazy on the part of the writers. I wished it was left up to my imagination. My imagination is at least interesting. Zzzzzzz.

    Season 4 of TWD is AMAZING! This is the best season yet, by far, and I love all of the plot development and the introduction of Terminus is GREAT!! Can't wait to watch Season 5!!!
  • Oct 16, 2020
    "Look at the flowers", one of the best scenes in the entire series. Extremely incredible. Still in the first part of the season, the arch of the prison and the governor close in the best possible way. Full of great moments.

    I had left of from the Show after 4 Episodes of Season 4 but then I saw all the good Reviews it has gotten so I got Motivated to continue watching it and I wasn't let down. It has really good Episodes especially towards the End or beginning from Episode 8 on where they Show that the Series has gotten some Amazing Screenplay work and in the Character Based Episodes they show some Development and Character Depth. And the Makeup/Prosthetics Department did the Best Job with the Zombies. RATING: 4,4

    Great, has some of the best episodes in the show.
  • Aug 20, 2020
    The series is overly contrived with boring drama and unrealistic violence. I stopped watching, not worth my time
  • Aug 18, 2020
    Best show i have ever seen
  • Aug 18, 2020
    I think this was last season of The Walking Dead being great. After this season, TV slowly started degrading into cheap action boring TV show. After this season, it's not about zombies anymore, but humans vs. humans.

    Continue to convince TWD! All the stories of life in prison and everything the group has to do to survive captivates the viewer. I advise to see!
