'The Walking Dead' back Oct. 13

And we've got a new season premiere date for "The Walking Dead:" Oct. 13,  a bit earlier than usual but timed to lead into AMC's horror flick marathon, AMCFearfest, going into its seventeenth year, if you can believe it...

 Same time, same place: Sundays at 9, and as per last season, "TWD" will be split into a pair of mini-seasons, each 8 episodes in length.

 Yes, all big news out at Comic-Con -- see pix, above -- which is just underway. 

 Meanwhile, this overview, gratis AMC:

In the highly anticipated new season, we find Rick and the group 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”).
