The Walking Dead is the first original cable series ever to end the broadcast TV season as the number one show for adults 18-49.

In the highly anticipated fourth season, Rick and the group are fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison. Sadly, in this brutal world, happiness is short-lived and walkers and outside threats are no match for danger brewing inside the fences.
