"Interested fans looking to win a 3-day, 2-night trip to the season 4 set of The Walking Dead next year need not give up a pound of flesh – just simply roll up their sleeves. AMC, in conjunction with the American Red Cross, is forming a nationwide blood drive between now and 11:59/10:59c on Monday October 22th. The sweepstakes is open to those over 21, residing in the US and Canada (except Québec)."
While there is no “official” word just yet – This announcement of a contest showed up on the network’s Website that gives a lucky fan the chance to appear on set for season 4.
Oops! Well, it's not really that bad. First of all, the contest is to benefit a Red Cross Blood donation drive and that is a good thing, right? Plus, The Walking Dead’s season 2 finale delivering a record-setting 9 million viewers and the highly-anticipated season 3 introducing many long-awaited fan-favorite characters and storylines from the comic book. It may have been a slip, but common sense says that we will see a season four.
This is the network's official statement -
The Walking Dead has not been renewed for a fourth season. There was no inadvertent pick-up of the series. Season three premieres October 14th. Promotional sweepstakes give-aways which involve prospective future season visits or opportunities are common practice in television. The sweepstakes rules clearly state AMC may award a substitute prize if the future season opportunity is not available.”
Hey, AMC, it's all good! We want a season four!
The Walking Dead rises again Sunday, October 14th @ 9/8c on AMC and will be followed by the post-series chat-show Talking Dead @ 10/9c
