Life appears to have found some normalcy for our heroes in "The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season." A community has taken shape inside the gates of the prison. Rick and his company have accepted and taken in other survivors, and as long as they are able to answer 3 simple questions, anyone is welcome into the pack. But there are growing threats, one coming from inside their sanctum and another from a menacing enemy, that hope to take his vengeance on them all. The 5-Disc Blu-ray set comes with all 16 episodes in hi-definition and superior Dolby TrueHD 7.1 audio.

Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) has settled his group into a rhythm of life after defending the prison last season from the invading Governor (David Morrissey) and his people. Living in such close quarters may come with a price in the zombie apocalypse. Suddenly a deadly infection is running rampant and could end them all from within. Hysteria takes over and the survivors are becoming infected, even as the group faces retaliation - with dire consequences - when the Governor returns!

The Blu-ray discs are loaded with a treasure trove of behind-the-scenes featurettes that bring the audience into the experience of creating one of the most powerful one-hour dramas on television. In-depth interviews with the show producers and its cast reveal great insight into this dangerous world of surviving "The Walking Dead." With this season the characters were faced with the uncertainty of the safety inside their prison walls, and then suddenly finding themselves compromised once again on the run.

"Inside the Walking Dead" explores the continuing story while "The Making Of" takes a look at the painstaking production to bring this adventure to life. A special featurette further explores the season's most diabolical villain, the "Governor," and one of the show's most beloved cast members. "Hershel" reveals the wonderful work of actor Scott Wilson and his contribution in creating one of the most durable heroes to meet his fate.

The discs are also loaded with "Deleted Scenes" and audio commentary from each episode that extend the story and deliver more as fans prepare for the upcoming fifth season premiering in October. Bring home "The Walking Dead" available in Blu-ray with "extended episodes," DVD or in the highly collectible limited edition package.
