If you’re already up to date with every episode of AMC‘s The Walking Dead, then you might have skipped the Holiday marathon last week and missed a couple of season four teasers that were slipped into the mix. (more…)
The Walking Dead‘s mid season finale was a whopper. (Didja read our review?) The massive firefight at the prison gates was a moment comic book fans had been anticipating even before the survivors ever looked upon its dank, dirty walls. And with the fallout still to come, showrunner Scott Gimple shares in what state we’ll find Rick and Carl when the series returns. Creator Robert Kirkman, however, is looking even further into the future and teasing when we might see the comic’s current major baddie, Negan, come to TV. (more…)
Some crazy shit went down on the mid-season finally of The Walking Dead. Chaos, zombies, warfare, death, despair, peoples heads falling off. It’s dramatic episodes like this that send us viewers in a frenzied shock with eyes transfixed. All seems lost for Ricks crew, they’re broken and separated. Will the surviving members come to find themselves together? What state will we find them in? How will they forge on? What F’D up thing is going to happen to them next? We’ll find out all that and more when the show returns in February. I know a little something-something, though. A certain someone is alive and will return.
TV Guide spoke with Robert Kirkman about the fate of a fan favorite character and he surprisingly confirmed a few details about their fate as well as where the group is headed after the events of the midseason finale. Continue on for more details if you really want to know.
SPOILER WARNING! Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
We’ve known for a while now that AMC plans to take the last decent show they have left and spin it off into a second TV show so that
Robert Kirkman can buy a house boat fans will see more of the zombie apocalypse. A second Walking Dead TV series? About what? How different could it be from the current one? Well by the sounds of it, it might be taking the prequel route. (more…)
If you’ve been watching The Walking Dead this season, you may have noticed a distinct lack of The Governor. And while many of us may not give a rat’s ass that he’s not around (let’s face it, he was getting kind of annoying), there are still the questions of where he went, whether or not he’s going to be back and exactly why he hasn’t been around. Now, Robert Kirkman has stepped forward to answer those questions. See what he had to say below. (more…)
Writing for Nerd Bastards certainly doesn’t pay my monthly bills, but it does give me tremendous opportunities to meet many of the talented actors and personalities that I love from television, movies, comics, and all the other nerdy things that make up my favorite past times. That’s the big Nerd Bastards payoff, and this time around I got to talk with The Walking Dead‘s T-Dog, actor and all around nice guy IronE Singleton.
Robert Kirkman‘s company Skybound, Hyundai, Future US, and Initiative got together to detail the ten year history of The Walking Dead in this video that can easily be summed up as Robert Kirkman’s Video-Love-Letter to Walking Dead fans everywhere. (more…)
This Sunday marks the return of the fourth season of AMC and Robert Kirkman‘s The Walking Dead. The Zombie Apocalypse Marketing Powers that be, yes those marketing guys are very hard to kill, have released a couple of behind the scenes videos to help bring you up to speed with where the series left off and what you can expect from Season 4. (more…)
In a not shocking, completely unsurprising development, AMC has just announced plans for a companion series to The Walking Dead. Never saw that one coming, right? Especially after their also just announced Breaking Bad prequel series, Better Call Saul.
This new drama is expected to air in 2015 and will follow a totally separate group of survivors from Rick’s. It’ll be executively produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert, ensuring fans of The Walking Dead shouldn’t fear this series won’t fall in line with the tone or be of a lesser quality than the original.
As for why AMC has decided to expand on the world of The Walking Dead, AMC’s president and general manager, Charlie Collier, said, “We’d be fucking idiots not to–sorry, no. That’s me reading between the lines. What Collier actually said was, “Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer.” Which has the same basic sentiment, really.
Collier added, “It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.”
Series creator and on whose whim the fate of all The Walking Dead‘s characters rests, Kirkman said of the new series,
After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe. The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.
I don’t know how Kirkman has managed to keep the excitement surrounding The Walking Dead going after 10 years, but a new playpen filled with new toys should definitely help.
The Walking Dead Season 4 returns October 13th. Pumped by the news of another series set in the zombie filled world? Can AMC sustain two shows with such similar premises? Are we about to hit zombie over-saturation? Or have we already?
The October 13th premiere on AMC of the fourth season of Robert Kirkman‘s The Walking Dead is fast approaching. Until now we’ve only gotten a look at some production stills and some very short clips. That is, until today. Now we’ve got an extended look at what’s in store for our ragged band of survivors as they try to stay alive in the prison.
