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.
At this point, a spoiler alert for The Walking Dead season finale should barely be necessary, but if you wandered in here without having seen the final episode of Season 4, consider yourself warned regardless!
Spoilers if you're not caught up on The Walking Dead through the fourth season finale! During last night's Season 4 finale of The Walking Dead, Rick did something pretty horrific in an effort to get himself, his son, Daryl and Michonne out of a tight spot. And in the process, Andrew Lincoln ended up with a mouthful of blood and raw chicken!
Spoilers if you haven't seen the Season 4 finale of The Walking Dead ("A")! Rick Grimes has proven in the past that he's willing to cross the line for the sake of survival. And now it seems he's finally willing to accept that reality for what it is. If someone tries to kill him or his people, he tries to kill them back even harder.
AMC has a Walking Dead marathon lined up for this Saturday night, in anticipation of the Season 4 finale, which will air Sunday, March 30 at 9:00 p.m. The official episode description for "A" doesn't give us a lot to go on in terms of what we might expect from the episode, beyond what was glimpsed in the preview.
It's the end of the line for The Walking Dead's fourth season this Sunday! Those who arrive, survive! Do they? Those who watch The Following may have flashed back to the recent "Korban" cult arc, which included a location where a brain-washy recording stating that "Korban is family. Korban is love..." was playing on a loud speaker on repeat throughout the compound.
Spoilers if you haven't watched tonight's episode of The Walking Dead ("Us"). After a particularly disturbing episode in "The Grove," tonight's installment of The Walking Dead bordered on uplifting, which is a rare thing for this series.
If you aren't still too disturbed by last night's episode of The Walking Dead to look toward the penultimate episode of the fourth season, we have the previews for "Us," which appears to revert back to the split-focus format after another episode that dedicated its entire hour to one set of characters.
