The July 19th issue of Entertainment Weekly will feature Glenn and Maggie from AMC's The Walking Dead, locked in a kiss. Actors Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohen posed during a photoshoot for the magazine which will feature a story about the upcoming fourth season of the zombie based TV show.

The article likely won't include any spoilers as cast members are pretty tight-lipped about what will happen to the characters when the new season starts in October. But perhaps a few hints will be given.

Zombies ruled Sunday Night with the first episode of season 3 of 'The Walking Dead' on AMC. An estimated 10.9 million viewers tuned in for the 9:00pm showing of episode 1. Only NFL's 'Sunday Night Football' game had more viewers. But just how impressive is 10.9 million viewers? Well the show 'Modern Family' that wins Emmy Awards every year, only averages about 7 million viewers each week. 'The Big Bang Theory', called the most popular show on TV, only averages 6.3 million viewers.

The first episode of the season had twice as many viewers as last season's first episode. So more people are becoming fans of arguably the best drama on television. The same episode repeated at 10:00pm and still gathered 3.5 million viewers, many for a second helping of zombie killing! Even the midnight re-airing had 850,000 viewers!

So, remember that scene in the pilot episode of The Walking Dead when Rick is in the city, surrounded by walkers, and he crawls under a tank? Then he finds a trap door and quickly escapes into the tank for safety. Inside the tank he discovers a dead soldier who apparently took his own life.

Well, that soldier was played by actor Sam Witwer, known for his role on Being Human on the SyFy Channel today. And according to Witwer, The Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont pitched him an idea of a web-based prequel show around his character. It would have included weekly uploaded episodes featuring the story of this soldier and everything that happened in Atlanta leading up to him being alone in that tank. And it would have ended with Rick crawling in through the floor.

Unfortunately, when Darabont left the show, the plans for this web-series also went kaput. Witwer, was completely prepared to film around his schedule at Being Human too. And we can only guess how many other great web-series prequels and side stories Darabont might have brought to us via the internet. However we are not completely without extras on the web. AMC does have some web-i-sodes featuring The Walking Dead characters, along with other documentaries, interviews, and trailers at: http://www.amctv.com/shows/the-walking-dead/video. But this story about the soldier in the tank would have been pretty cool.
