The director of the season four premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead has said that it is "insanely filled with great drama."

Greg Nicotero is taking on his fifth episode of the hugely popular Zombie show as director on which he normally acts as Special FX Make-up Designer.

In an interview with AMC he said "What's nice about the first episode is that they always supersize it and give you an extra day [to shoot] because they know that the script is going to be insanely filled with great drama and great action."

"We certainly didn't skimp on anything in this one. The story arcs and the script this season are astoundingly detailed, and every single nuance is there for a reason."

He added of what the audience can expect from the zombies on episode 1"We had walkers, we had mummified corpses, we had puppets, we had zombie bites. There were even a couple of gags that we came up with on the fly."

Normus Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon on the show, recent talked about how impressed he is with the season 4 scripts saying they were the best yet on the drama.
