'Walking Dead' Confirmed For Season Four, New Video Game Episode Hitting In October

Walking Dead

A few cool "Walking Dead" tidbits to kick off your Wednesday. Up first, there's word that AMC has already quietly announced that the zombie survival horror series will be back for a fourth season; the news comes from a contest the network is hosting on its website, where the winner will earn a visit to the set of season four. Sounds like confirmation to us!

Sticking with the number four, the fourth episode of the "Walking Dead" video games from Telltale has a tentative release date of this October. IGN has the news on that, saying that the episode, titled "Around Every Corner," will launch "very soon this October," according to the folks at Telltale themselves.

The fifth episode of the games, "No Time Left," is expected to launch before the end of 2012, as a disc featuring all of the "Walking Dead" episodes to date is slated to hit retail stores in December, as our pals at MTV Multiplayer reported this week.
