A new teaser for the fourth season of The Walking Dead is out, and though it goes by painfully quick, it's packed with enough thousand-mile stares, tense orchestral strings and pained pleading to make you start itching for some zombie mayhem. The trailer offers short clips of our haggard-looking protagonists, Rick, Carol and young Carl slowly lowering a shotgun, all while a voice begs for help.
For a more intense, zombie-filled peak at the new season of Walking Dead, you can check out our rundown of the show's full trailer, which aired at this year's Comic-Con. The Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 13th.
