Walking Dead S4 will be 'crazier' (and the Comic-Con trailer proves it)

Uneasy alliances, treachery, next to no hope, and a horde of zombies at your door? Yup -- The Walking Dead's back, all right. 

Things were, as ever, in a murky place at the end of Walking Dead's third season. And that's just on-screen. While Walking Dead may be a critical darling, the show has gone through a number of showrunners since the comic made its way to the small screen.

But the new showrunner, Scott M. Gimple, is obviously ready and raring to go. He was at San Diego Comic-Con's famed Hall H along with comic creator Robert Kirkman with a brand-new trailer to show off.

Kirkman says of season four that "things are going to be way crazier, it's an escalation." Well, let's see, shall we?

An escalation, indeed. Who's feeding those zombies and leading them inside? What's up with the voice on the radio? And what surprise deaths will the fourth season have in store?

Gimple suggests things might be calm at first, but not for long, saying, "They might get a little comfortable, but then things might get a little dangerous."

And as for Rick and Carl, we'll be seeing some changed there as well. According to actor Andrew Lincoln, "The relationship with Carl is integral to the beginning of the season from Rick. [Carl] turning into a sociopath at the end of the season woke him up to his parenting duties. You find Rick in a completely different place this season."

We've got less than three months left to wait (and speculate). The Walking Dead season four premieres Sunday, Oct. 13.
