To say that The Walking Dead has a big presence at Comic-Con in San Diego would probably be an understatement. Between the popularity of the AMC drama and the comic book series on which the zombie show is based, there's no shortage of Walking Dead fans at Comic-Con.
There are still months to wait for the return of The Walking Dead, but with Comic-Con coming up, AMC seems eager to build some momentum in its effort to promote the upcoming Season 5, which is due to arrive this Fall. That includes airing a preview special tomorrow night (Tuesday, July 8), which will offer an inside look at the making of the zombie drama.
Spoilers if you're not caught up on The Walking Dead through Season 4! AMC has released a new clip from Season 5 of The Walking Dead. Check it out ahead...
July 4th is a great time of year to celebrate the birth of our great nation, appreciate Independence, democracy and our troops whilst filling our stomachs with barbecued goodies and feasting our eyes on fireworks displays. Or we can stay inside and watch non-stop The Walking Dead episodes back to back to back!
We’ve still got some months to go before getting back into the familiar “exposition-to-violence-to-exposition” storytelling that The Walking Dead falls into, but AMC’s 4th of July “Dead, White and Blue” marathon will feature an exclusive Season 5 sneak peek for those tuning in live.
The Walking Dead Season 5 is still a ways off, but it's not too soon to start gathering information about the zombie drama. We actually already know quite a bit about what to expect from Season 5, including details about the cast, where the story will pick up and more.
What's ahead for The Walking Dead? Comic writer and series executive producer Robert Kirkman offered up some vague updates on the anticipated fifth season of the AMC zombie drama, including what we should expect from the Season premiere. Assuming you're caught up on Season 4, vague spoilers (nothing major) ahead! If you're not caught up on Season 4, prepare to be spoiled.
Based on the long-winded (but still immensely enjoyable) comic series from executive producer Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead has a lot to work with as far as source material goes, and its producers and writers have long-term goals for where the TV series will take viewers. How long-term? Oh, at least 12 seasons is all.
The Wil Wheaton Project finally answered that big question, what if The Walking Dead had an 80s-style opening theme? The video above has been making the rounds since Wil Wheaton's newsy Syfy talk show The Wil Wheaton Project made its debut, and it cleverly presents The Walking Dead as your typical 80s drama or sitcom, complete with a smiling cast... covered in blood, killing zombies and trying not to die.
So it should surprise exactly no one that Lifetime is getting into the classic horror game with former The Walking Dead showrunner for – get this – Damien, a sequel of sorts to Richard Donner’s devilish 1976 thriller The Omen which apparently has nothing to do with Don Taylor’s 1978 sequel Damien: Omen II.
Unlike with past seasons of The Walking Dead, which left off with much of its major conflict either resolved or shelved for the time being, Season 4 left off with a pretty major cliffhanger. One that left the fate of pretty much all of the characters hanging in the balance. (Season 4 spoilers ahead)!
It's about this time of year that AMC gives us our first teasy glimpse of the upcoming season of The Walking Dead. In fact, almost a year to the day, AMC teased Season 4 last year with a Rick picture, vaguely showing off Andrew Lincoln's character in the woods. For Season 5's big first look, we have Rick looking roughed up as he peers out of somewhere... a railroad car, perhaps?
The latest bit of Walking Dead news involves a mysterious bit of casting for Season 5. The Wire star Seth Gilliam has boarded the AMC zombie drama as a series regular. While the actor is confirmed for the part -- marking the third Wire actor to be a regular on the series -- the character Gilliam will be playing is unknown at present.
Epic Rap Battle put two AMC protagonists up against each other today, and in a battle of The Walking Dead's Rick Grimes and Breaking Bad's Walter White, I think the one who knocks may have come out on top. In all fairness though, Walter White had an extra season to develop his badassery, whereas Rick Grimes is still getting there.
Could The Walking Dead go on for ten seasons or more? Showrunner Scott Gimple suggests as much in a recent interview he did with Larry King, and while that might just be wishful thinking or a hypothetical situation that he's suggesting, his explanation for how the series could surpass a decade on the air actually makes sense.
