The Walking Dead Season 4 Webisodes Launch October 1 on amc.com

AMC_TWD_Webisodes_Oath_04sizedAMC’s award-winning The Walking Dead webisode series returns to amc.com and AMC’s YouTube Channel on Sun., Oct. 1 with three new installments. The newest series –- The Oath –- was executive produced, directed and conceived by Greg Nicotero, executive producer, director and special effects makeup designer on the hit show.

In the three webisodes (7 to 10 minutes each), the lone survivors of a massive walker-attack, Paul (Wyatt Russell, Cowboys and Aliens) and Karina (Ashley Bell, The Last Exorcism), speed across the countryside, frantically searching for an aid-station, as one of them slowly bleeds out from a wound. Finally coming upon a hospital that has not been overrun at first feels like a blessing, but could soon turn to misfortune, as a seemingly benevolent doctor (Ellen Greene, Little Shop of Horrors) may hide a darker agenda.

Right on the heels of directing Season 4′s premiere episode, Greg Nicotero focused his sights on the most ambitious The Walking Dead webisode series yet. “There’s walkers, gore and new threats lurking around every turn — all the elements that fans The Walking Dead will love!”
