AMC released their latest The Walking Dead webisodes on October 1. The third in a series of companion pieces to the show, this outing, entitled The Oath, follows two survivors of a huge walker attack. Our protagonists, Paul and Karina, are on a desperate mission to find medical attention for the gravely injured Paul and hopefully not get eaten in the process.
If you haven’t seen any of the webisodes, you’re missing out on some great side stories about other survivors in the world of The Walking Dead. Wanna catch up? That’s easy, just click on over to our article The Walking Dead to Launch Season 4 Webisodes October 1st and you’ll find an embedded playlist of the previous 2 seasons of webisodes.
All 3 webisodes are embedded her after this quote from AMC’s The Walking Dead blog.
In the three webisodes (7 to 10 minutes each), the lone survivors of a massive walker-attack, Paul (Wyatt Russell, Cowboys and Aliens) and Karina (Ashley Bell, The Last Exorcism), speed across the countryside, frantically searching for an aid-station, as one of them slowly bleeds out from a wound. Finally coming upon a hospital that has not been overrun at first feels like a blessing, but could soon turn to misfortune, as a seemingly benevolent doctor (Ellen Greene,Little Shop of Horrors) may hide a darker agenda.
Right on the heels of directing Season 4′s premiere episode, Greg Nicotero focused his sights on the most ambitious The Walking Dead webisode series yet. “There’s walkers, gore and new threats lurking around every turn — all the elements that fans The Walking Dead will love!”
Nicotero further commented, “The webisodes give us a unique opportunity to see other parts of the ravaged world of The Walking Dead while weaving in and out of our show. The crossover between The Oath and The Walking Dead ties in one of the most iconic images from the series, and gives us insights and history to yet another timeline. I had worked with Ashley on The Last Exorcism and brought in Wyatt and Ellen, who rounded out the brilliant cast perfectly.”
“The Walking Dead audience is passionate and enthusiastically interacts with the show and other fans online. Being able to develop new ways for them to experience the world of The Walking Dead, like these webisodes, is a no-brainer,” said Mac McKean, senior vice president, digital media, AMC. “They tell a great story with high production values, and they perfectly complement AMC’s extremely popular The Walking Dead digital experiences — games, second screen experiences and interactive content.”
