The introduction of Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan was a highly consequential new component to the world of The Walking Dead, a move that was as anticipated as it was feared as the tyrannical leader of the Saviors marked his arrival with the brutal beating death of not just one, but two beloved characters. He’s the boss now, but as history teaches us, all tyrants fall in time, and so will it be for Negan. But how will Negan fall? Fans of the comic book Walking Dead know, but they shouldn’t get too attached because the showrunner of the series may be shaking things up. (more…)

In a move that might be related to all those Walking Dead fans waving pitchforks and burning torches outside The Walking Dead offices, Executive Producer and Director Greg Nicotero just spilled the beans that might calm some of those angry Internet villagers. What could Nicotero possibly say that might reduce all that Fan based The Walking Dead Finale anger? It has everything to do with the Negan intro scene and Jeffery Dean Morgan letting the “F” bombs fly. (more…)

Word is racing around the Internet that Jeffery Dean Morgan (Watchmen, Magic City) has been cast in the villainous role of Negan in AMC‘s The Walking Dead. Speculation on who should play Negan on the show has ranged from Madmen‘s Jon Hamm, to Henry Rollins, but I have to say that Jeffery Dean Morgan is a fine choice and he’ll do Lucille proud. “Who’s Lucille,” you ask?

I hope everyone that wasn’t watching The Walking Dead last night wasn’t spending their time on Twitter because around 9:47 pm EST the place blew up with a pretty big spoiler. What is this spoiler? Did you not watch the show? Obviously, it won’t be spoiled in this paragraph because we think of the children here at Nerd Bastards, but this article will addresses said spoiler and Dead executive producer Scott M. Gimple‘s somewhat ambiguous response to the matter. So is [SPOILER] [SPOILER], or is he, as some fans have been theorizing, [SPOILER] and well having barely escaped the [SPOILER] of [SPOILER]. Seriously, spoilers ahead. (more…)

With the season six premiere only a couple of months away (October 11th) for AMC‘s The Walking Dead, fans are wondering what’s in store for our hardy band of survivors. They’ve found some relative safety in the walled section of Alexandria, and been reunited with Morgan, but things aren’t all roses. We all know that bad things are headed their way. One of the baddest of the bad and one of the comic book series favorite villain is a guy called Negan. Everyone wants to know when he’s going to make the transition from the comic book page to the small screen. Showrunner Scott Gimple has a few things to say about Negan and Season Six. (more…)

That was quite the turbulent season on The Walking Dead. Good friends and family were lost, the remaining survivors were pushed to the breaking point, and on top of it all, the group thought they found salvation only to be confronted with very human demons within the walls of the so-called Alexandria Safe Zone. So now what? Well, it’s back to business for the highly popular zombie drama this October, as Rick and the gang face all new challenges inside Alexandria, where things are so much more complicated than merely surviving. Or is it? Unsure, but there will be some new faces on the show this season that will help find an answer. (more…)

Although it’s kind of spoilery to say, the end of last night’s episode of The Walking Dead introduced a new character called Aaron to the program. (Good timing too because we’ve lost two in as many weeks. Shhh, spoiler.) Anyway, we don’t know much about Aaron yet except that his name is Aaron, and he knows about the group, and – by God! – it looks like he’s making out alright in the zombie apocalypse. Aaron, played on the show by Ross Marquand, is a character from the comic book, so what implications does his arrival have for the core group of survivors? Marquand answered that, and other questions, in a recent interview announcing his arrival to the world of The Walking Dead. Spoilers included. (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…)

So last night’s mid-season finale of The Walking Dead was a proverbial (and literal) blood bath, even by Walking Dead standards. It featured the death of two important characters and rearranged the deck chairs of the show, which will surely take the motley crew of zombie apocalypse survivors in strange new (darker?) directions in the back-half of season four. But before we head those directions when the series returns in February, it seems like a good time to talk to executive producer Scott Gimple and gets his insight on what [SPOILER] and [SPOILER] had to die.
