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.
In a somewhat surprising move, AMC has renewed Turn this week. The Revolutionary War drama has a killer premise and an excellent cast, but it failed to gain a ton of traction during its first season at the cable network. Still, it looks like AMC saw enough promise in Turn to sign on for a second season of the drama, which stars Jamie Bell, Heather Lind and Kevin McNally.
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.
There's good news, bad news and a picture for Breaking Bad fans. The bad news is, the Breaking Bad prequel spinoff series Better Call Saul won't be premiering this fall as originally planned. Instead, AMC's pushing the premiere off to 2015.
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.
Thanks to slick marketing from AMC and a slew of pretty good reviews, Halt and Catch Fire did a fine job of getting its name and its premise out to potential audiences before the show’s premiere. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the advertising and the reviews were enough to garner much interest. Halt and Catch Fire’s premiere only brought in 1.2 million total viewers when it premiered on AMC on Sunday night.
The 80s drama starts with an armadillo’s demise and ends with a slew of corporate IBM cronies shuffling into an office building like they’re on an episode of The Walking Dead. In between, inspiring speeches, a rude but genius female and one man’s awakening kicks off the drama to an exciting start. It’s a good thing, too, because excitement has mostly been missing from the slew of hopeful new dramas AMC has produced over the last several years.
MAJOR Breaking Bad spoilers beyond this point! Is it possible that Walter White may have lived to cook another day? Bryan Cranston seems willing to entertain the thought when he briefly discussed the ending of Breaking Bad in an interview with CNN's Ashleigh Banfield.
Who said a story about building a computer couldn't be sexy? The new character video for AMC's period drama Halt and Catch Fire offers more than a hint of sexiness as it focuses on Mackenzie Davis' character Cameron Howe, the young, volatile prodigy among the trio of people who are working to build a game-changing computer to rival IBM's PC.
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?
"Computers aren't the thing," the new TV spot for AMC's Halt and Catch Fire notes. "They're the thing that gets us to the thing." That statement actually makes a lot of sense when we consider not only how much computers have evolved since the 80s, but also how many crucial uses they have from one industry and household to the next.
With three solid leads in Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks and Michael McKean, creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have signed on another talented trio in Patrick Fabian (The Last Exorcism), Rhea Seehorn (Whitney) and Michael Mando (Orphan Black). And it sounds like everyone may serve to make Saul’s life a living hell.
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.
