Spoiler Alert: Story contains information revealed in fourth season premiere.

"The Walking Dead's" fourth season premiere Sunday night was uneventful compared to last season's finale, as America's favorite hodgepodge team of zombie killers attempted to create a structured community in a chaotic post-apocalyptic world.

In the premiere, the one-time prison that Sheriff Rick Grimes and his crew called home is converted into a village, as the show's central group expands with refugees from the former Woodbury community. Last season, the Woodbury community collapsed with the fall of show's villain, "The Governor."

Community gardens and farms are created; a decision-making council is formed, and the community shares meals. The group sets traps, hunts for wildlife and loot supermarkets to survive, The Washington Post reported.

Sheriff Rick, played by actor Andrew Lincoln, remains as the group's leader. He is more mentally stable than he was during season 3, in which he lost his wife and gained a baby daughter.

Another character who appear to be coming into his own is Daryl Dixon, played by actor Norman Reedus, who is becoming the group's primary hunter. Carol Peletier, played by actress Melissa McBride, is the community's primary cook and children’s story-time reader, NJ.com reported.

There are also more children, because of the refugees from the Woodbury community.

During their grocery store raid, members of the group are overrun by zombies, which fall through the store's ceiling after being on the building's rooftop. 

While Daryl, Glenn and others fight off zombies in supermarket aisles, Rick runs into a nameless Irish woman who begs to join the group with her husband.

The viewer later finds out the woman's husband is a "walker," the term given to zombies on the show. The woman had led Rick out into the woods in an attempt to feed him to her husband, who needed fresh flesh. Rather than allow Rick to end her husband's life, the woman commits suicide so that she and her husband can wander together in an undead state in search of flesh.

Though it is unclear how many people watched Sunday night's premiere on AMC, "The Walking Dead" Season 3 finale set a record for most-watched drama series telecast in basic cable history in March, with 12.4 million viewers.
