Image Comics only released the first issue of Outcast a month ago today, but Cinemax first got involved back in November of last year, when they acquired the spec script. It’s Kirkman’s first pilot, and he’s the perfect person for the job.
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.
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)!
Even though mum was most definitely the word when talking with the cast and producers of AMC’s The Walking Dead, a few details about the fourth season did make their way out during the Comic-Con interviews. Here’s what stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, David Morrissey, Chad Coleman and Scott Wilson (as well as creator Robert Kirkman and other executive producers) had to say about the new season.
Walking Dead executive producer Robert Kirkman is having a really busy season. In addition to his Walking Dead duties, he also has an AMC pilot in development called Thick as Thieves. Now, he’s signed on with Fox International Channels, Skybound, and Circle of Confusion for a show based on an exorcism.
Kirkman’s newest comic series Thief of Thieves was published on February 8 of this year and subsequently sold out. Because of this, AMC seems to have extreme confidence in the possibility of a thief-based series that will follow a fellow named Conrad Paulson, a former thief who decides he wants to live “straight and narrow” for the sake of his family.
Welcome back to another exciting episode of Wheel of Litigation! It simply wouldn't be Hollywood if somebody wasn't suing somebody else on a weekly basis. This week the contestants are Robert Kirkman -- creator of the apocalyptic zombie comic series The Walking Dead, and the AMC series based on it -- and his former partner, Michael Anthony Moore.
And now from the "Most Likely to Piss Off Loyal Fans" department: today Anchor Bay Entertainment has announced a new special edition of The Walking Dead: Season 1, which will include tons of new bonus features, including audio commentaries on all six episodes. Sounds great, right? Well, not if you're one of the folks (hi!) who already paid to buy the season one set last March, which includes a fraction of these features.
Everyone is pretty excited for the return of AMC's The Walking Dead. It's one of the few new series last season that really captured audiences and instantly converted them into mindless, uh, zombies, obediently tuning in each week to see what blood, guts, and gore-thirsty creatures Sheriff Rick Grimes and the rest of the survivors had to deal with, or decapitate and disembowel, this time.
There are some who would see a behind-the-scenes video as spoiling the magic of the show, shattering the illusion that the program works so hard to create. But me? I think the real magic is watching how they create that illusion, especially in a series like The Walking Dead where there is so much work going on to make us believe that this zombie apocalypse is really taking place.
The first season of The Walking Dead was very well received, but the problem with these kinds of shows -- ones that regularly kill off their characters -- is that they need constant and continual casting. And trust me, a lot of characters in this series don't last very long. No spoilers, but I will say this: no one is safe.
Don't worry. Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead will be back looking for your brains before you know it. That's right, AMC's horror hit from last year has begun filming its follow-up season, and this time they've got a full 13-episode order to fill with your favorite flesh-eaters. Go behind the scenes with the cast and crew.
The promotional effort has already been resurrected for the critically acclaimed series about the undead with this first look photo from Season Two of The Walking Dead. The series, adapted from Robert Kirkman's graphic novel of the same same and written (primarily) and directed by Frank 'Shawshank Redemption' Darabont, was such an initial success that the order for another round came very quickly...
Three new characters announced for AMC's The Walking Dead and, as comic creator Robert Kirkman said, new blood is always needed to "replenish the ranks"... meaning there needs to be more people to die for our enjoyment. Sounds good to me.
