Breaking news: Rick Grimes is still hot! The Walking Dead Season 4 officially started filming on Monday, May 6 down in Georgia. We won’t see the premiere until October, but not only is Episode 1 going to "rule" — per none other than Norman Reedus (Daryl) himself — AMC has already released an image from production.

The above photo from the Season 4 premiere shows Andrew Lincoln's Rick —  looking fine, yes it must be repeated — with a walker out of focus behind him, like they are shooting their own album cover.

What do you think is going on? Keep in mind we have a time jump coming our way, so maybe that comes into play here. As you ponder, check out our Season 4 spoilers roundup for casting updates and whatnot. Maybe the long wait won’t be so bad after all!
