The Walking Dead Season 4: Who Is Tyreese? 5 Things You Need to Know
Tyreese (played by former The Wire actor Chad Coleman) was first introduced on The Walking Dead show in Season 3. The character is a huge fan favorite from the comic books, so viewers are super-hyped to see how closely his storyline will play out on the small screen in comparison to the comic books.
He's still reeling from his girlfriend Karen's brutal death, and when he finds out that Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) killed her, there's no telling how he'll take this bombshell.
Here are five quick facts to know about one of Team Prison’s standout residents:
1. Tyreese is a zombie apocalypse survivor who was first discovered with his own crew (which includes his sister Sasha) in the prison by Rick and Rick’s crew. After a weird incident with Rick (and RIck’s hallucinations), Tyreese and team flee over to Woodbury. By the end of Season 3, Tyreese is faced with choosing The Governor or Rick, and ends up choosing Rick. We’d say that was the right choice.
4. Tyreese has three trademarks: his beanie, a ribbed tank top, and his weapon of choice: a hammer. The Season 4 premiere, “30 Days Without an Accident”, is actually the first episode where Tyreese is seen without one of these items — his beanie!
5. Tyreese appears to be lethal with both hands. Observant viewers have noticed he strikes his hammer with his right hand and shoots guns with his left, but that’s not to say his left and right hands are equally proficient. Tyreese’s aim is nowhere near as accurate with a gun as it is with the hammer, which is one way he’s just like his comic book character.
