At this point all you probably just finished watching the explosive The Walking Dead Season 3 finale. (If you missed it, read our recap here!). Naturally, even that wasn't enough and you — like us — are already looking ahead to The Walking Dead Season 4, which will begin production in early May.

So, when can we expect to dive back into the sweat-soaked, blood-drenched post-walker apocalypse?

The Walking Dead Season 4, which will consist of 16 episodes just like Season 3, is set to kick off this coming October 2013. It will likely follow a similar schedule, breaking for an interminable winter hiatus from December through mid-February 2014.

If you can't hold out until October and need to know what's going to happen on the show this fall, catch up on all the latest Walking Dead spoilers and news here.
