We know that a companion series to ‘The Walking Dead’ has been ordered and is in development. We also know that it’s moving along gradually because with its 2015 release, there’s just no hurry. With TWD season 5 just around the corner, we’re all gonna be getting our zombie fixes soon enough anyway. Thankfully, the new show will take place in a completely different part of America. It might even be a prequel to the current project. We kinda knew that too. What we didn’t know before was that the tentative characters in the show have been blueprinted and announced. And some of them look like the old characters. (more…)

While we all wait for AMC’s The Walking Dead to return to our TV’s for a fifth season, it’s nice to know that the fine folks over at Bad Lip Reading (the geniuses behind Game of Thrones/Medieval Land Fun-Time World) are on hand give us a (slightly re-dubbed) recap of last season. The following 5 minute video will help refresh your memory on plot lines such as Daryl’s turtle Anthony, extra polite zombies, the dolphin/apple based tension between Rick and Tyreese, and let’s not forget the musical numbers. Oh the musical numbers.

I’m going to be honest, I don’t remember last season of The Walking Dead being like this, but  they couldn’t put this recap up on YouTube if it wasn’t true, right? Check it out after the jump (more…)

So it’s lunch time. What are you eating? Would you like some human? Yum, delicious human meat. Tastes like chicken, right? Well now you can be the judge. Hold on. Don’t freak out. No where, and no business, is serving actual human meat because if nothing else it would attract a lot of attention from the city’s health and safety office, not to mention the police department. But in the spirit of cannibalism (if that’s a thing), a pair of chefs from the United Kingdom are giving fans of the series The Walking Dead a chance to enjoy an opportunity for virtual cannibalism, all in the name of promoting the fifth season of the zombie apocalypse drama.

AMC Goes Full Retread/Orders ‘Walking Dead’ Companion TV Series

- 09-05-14Comics, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

NO USED THIS ONE

More and more extras will be dying to get on TV as zombie mania lumbers forward. ‘The Walking Dead’ series paved the way for pedestrian efforts like ‘The Loonies’ and ‘Suck and Moan,’ as well as higher profile projects such as ‘In The Flesh.’ Nobody is getting tired of zombies and more and more money is being thrown at them so that the dead may continue living. When I say “nobody” I mean AMC more than everybody else. With the ground-breaking success of their comic book adaptation by Robert Kirkman, it looks like the network that once relied on “Classic Movies” is closer to going all walkers, all the time. How close? How about a zombie-TV-show-spinoff close? What do you guys think? Are we just retreading well-worn territory? Reading on is a no-brainer. (more…)

Going into season five, The Walking Dead is more popular than it’s ever been, which is probably why on Sunday the National Fan Expo was barely open for business and Constitution Hall was almost full of fans waiting for a panel with Walking Dead cast members. A little over an hour later, the moderator called out the “five of the amazing people from the show; three of whom are still living on it,” and Michael Rooker (Merle Dixon), Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), and David Morrissey (The Governor) all gathered on stage to a thunderous applause.

One thing you’ve got to know about talking to Michael Rooker one-on-one is he’s scary. The aviator sunglasses he wore weren’t helping either. Seriously though, underneath that gruff exterior is funny and charming man who has now found himself at the center of the nerd universe thanks to roles in AMC’s The Walking Dead and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In our brief chat at the National Fan Expo Friday, Rooker discussed which franchise is winning the autograph wars, how he’s a nerd with muscles and how a little Yondu does a long way. (more…)

Oh no, not another zombie show. Yes, the trend is powerful, and it continues in full force and without any sign of stopping with the upcoming new series Z Nation. At the National Fan Expo in Toronto, executive producer Craig Engler and co-star Tom Everett Scott were on hand to tell fans why their show was different from The Walking Dead, why you don’t have to choose between the two, and how the show will reconcile both slow and fast zombies into the same show universe.
