EW’s Season 4 ‘The Walking Dead’ Covers Show Carl Grimes In Puberty Meltdown Mode

Season four of The Walking Dead is set to return this October, and what we do know is that there will be a new showrunner in Scott Gimple — who wrote a few of the best episodes of season three — and that, according to exec producer Greg Nicotero, the zombie horde will take center stage again. As he tells EW: “The first episode, we had days where there were 150 walkers.” Nicotero should know: In addition to being the special effects supervisor on the show, he’s also played a walker four times already.

Speaking of EW, they also have three different covers for their forthcoming The Walking Dead issue, featuring Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon and a Carl Grimes that is clearly going through a bad case of the Savage syndrome. I think it’ll work for him, though, since his character was seen at the early stages of CRAZY KOOKOO BANANAS at the end of season three.

Here are the covers.
