Though it has not yet been officially confirmed that the zombie drama will continue beyond its upcoming third run, a competition on AMC's official website is offering fans the opportunity to "win a trip to The Walking Dead Season 4 set".
The cable network has teamed up with the American Red Cross for a nationwide blood drive, with those who make an appointment to donate being entered into a sweepstake.
Winners will then be rewarded with a three-day, two-night trip to "the season four production of The Walking Dead in 2013".
The show's third season premieres in the US on October 14 and makes its UK debut on October 19 at 10pm on FX.
The Walking Dead exec Glen Mazzara has promised that the new episodes will be "relentless", following some criticism of the second season's pace.
"All these horrible things are being thrown at our characters at such a relentless pace that the audience won't be able to catch their breath and figure out what's going on," he explained. "So I think it's just the idea that you are immersed in this apocalypse, and there really is no escape."
