[via press release from AMC]




New York, NY - September 26, 2013 - AMC's award-winning "The Walking Dead" webisode series returns to www.amc.com and AMC's YouTube Channel, www.youtube.com/amc October 1 with three new installments. The newest series - "The Oath" - was executive produced, directed and conceived by Greg Nicotero, executive producer, director and special effects makeup designer on the hit show.

In the three webisodes (7 to 10 minutes each), the lone survivors of a massive walker-attack, Paul (Wyatt Russell, Cowboys and Aliens) and Karina (Ashley Bell, The Last Exorcism), speed across the countryside, frantically searching for an aid-station, as one of them slowly bleeds out from a wound. Finally coming upon a hospital that has not been overrun, at first feels like a blessing, but could soon turn to misfortune, as a seemingly benevolent doctor (Ellen Greene, Little Shop of Horrors) may hide a darker agenda.

Right on the heels of directing season 4's premiere episode, Greg Nicotero focused his sights on the most ambitious "The Walking Dead" webisode series yet. "There's walkers, gore and new threats lurking around every turn -- all the elements that fans 'The Walking Dead' will love!"

Nicotero further commented, "The webisodes give us a unique opportunity to see other parts of the ravaged world of 'The Walking Dead' while weaving in and out of our show. The crossover between 'The Oath' and 'The Walking Dead' ties in one of the most iconic images from the series, and gives us insights and history to yet another timeline. I had worked with Ashley on The Last Exorcism and brought in Wyatt and Ellen, who rounded out the brilliant cast perfectly."

"'The Walking Dead' audience is passionate and enthusiastically interacts with the show and other fans online. Being able to develop new ways for them to experience the world of 'The Walking Dead,' like these webisodes, is a no-brainer," said Mac McKean, senior vice president, digital media, AMC. "They tell a great story with high production values, and they perfectly complement AMC's extremely popular 'The Walking Dead' digital experiences -- games, second screen experiences and interactive content."

The previous two seasons of amc.com's "The Walking Dead" webisodes have won back-to-back WGA, Streamy and Webby awards. The webisodes are produced by Alloy Digital/Generate with Chris Pollack, Jared Hoffman, Greg Nicotero and Michael Petok serving as executive producers.

Hyundai continues its partnership with AMC and "The Walking Dead." From the iconic Kiwi Green Tucson to Hyundai's growing fleet of Zombie Survival Machines, including a fan-designed version to be revealed at New York Comic Con, the brand continues to play an important supporting role in "The Walking Dead" fandom.

"It's great to extend our partnership with AMC again for 'The Walking Dead' webisode series," said David Matathia, director, marketing communications, Hyundai Motor America. "We know fans can't get enough of 'The Walking Dead' world and we're excited to provide unique content before the start of the season."

"The Walking Dead," the most watched drama in basic cable history, returns for another terrifying and exhilarating season on Sunday, October 13th at 9pm ET/PT. In this highly anticipated new season, we see Rick and the group of survivors fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison. Sadly, in this brutal world, happiness is short-lived and walkers and outside threats are no match for danger brewing inside the fences. The group's home and new way of life will be thoroughly tested, and their struggle to survive has never been so perilous. Season 4 also introduces several new characters including Bob Stookey (Lawrence Gilliard Jr., "The Wire").

The premiere episode entitled "30 Days Without An Accident" was written by Scott M. Gimple and directed by Greg Nicotero.
