Young Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) leads two zombies away from his new home in the first clip from The Walking Dead's Season 4 midseason premiere, "After", airing Sunday, February 9 at 9 PM ET on AMC. After the attack at the prison, the group has become separated, with Carl and Rick (Andrew Lincoln) on their own, forced to fend for themselves. We already saw hints from the trailer earlier this week that Carl is emerging into a leader, with Rick becoming more and more unglued, as teased by showrunner Scott M. Gimple last month. Find out what's in store for Rick, Carl and the rest of these survivors when the show returns in less than two weeks.

Following the devastating events of the mid-season finale, Rick and the group are still reeling from the loss of their home, family, and friends. With the destruction of the prison, we see the group of survivors broken apart and sent on divergent paths, unsure of everyone else's fate. What was a challenging life behind fences and walls grows that much more perilous and precious as they are exposed to new dangers, new enemies, and heartbreaking choices. They will have their faith thoroughly tested -- a faith that breaks some of them and redeems others. The Walking Dead returns with all-new episodes this February.
