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.

We all know that The Walking Dead returns to AMC this Sunday, February 9th, but do you know who’ll be making their unlikely return along with the show? Beware, ****POTENTIAL SPOILERS**** after the jump! (more…)
While the answer may be obvious to some, after watching the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead, others may be questioning if we have finally seen the last of The Governor. In a recent interview, David Morrissey sheds some light on this, but beware of *****SPOILERS***** if you have yet to catch up on The Walking Dead.
Those that have been keeping up with The Walking Dead know that the latest mid-season finale exited the character of The Governor – permanently (if you’re one of those that didn’t see the episode, then sorry, spoilers – deal with it). And while Rick and his gang certainly won’t miss the one-eyed bastard, the actor himself, David Morrissey, will be missed by cast and crew (and more than a few fans). To honor the time this excellent actor has put into the show, AMC has put together a little video containing some of our fondest memories of him along with interviews with Morrissey and the crew. Check it out below: (more…)
One expects that the Internet will spoil things on occasion, it’s a built-in part of the Internet culture. What you shouldn’t expect is for the TV station airing your favorite show to put together a teaser for the next episode that contains a major spoiler. One of those jaw dropping moments that you never want to know about until it happens. Somebody at FOX Brazil must have said “Screw it.” Putting together the teaser below that contains one big ass spoiler. (more…)
Hello out there in Nerd Reader Land, my name is Jason and I will be taking over for Regina this week as your The Walking Dead reviewer. If you happen to be a hater of the new season, I suggest you find some reviewer with more negative opinions of the show, as I am currently working under the firm belief that this is the season that shows what The Walking Dead should have always been. If you are in the same fanboy boat as me, then please read on and enjoy my examination of ‘Live Bait‘, the latest installment of the AMC zombie apocalypse. (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…)
The countdown for the return of the second half of season three for AMC and Robert Kirkman‘s The Walking Dead is in the final stretch, so expect to see more teasers, clips, commercials, and production stills as the marketing machine kicks into overdrive. It’ll all culminate with a recap marathon of The Walking Dead season three just hours before the February 10th premiere at 9PM on AMC. It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up on anything you’ve missed so far or just refresh your memory.
First off we’ve got a clip featuring a look at the new arrivals to the prison and their introduction to the baby.
That awkward pause at the end is fantastic, did you notice Hershel, well everyone, looking back toward Carl? Even the most innocent questions become conversational land mines in the Zombie Apocalypse.
In case you missed it, (I sat through the whole Superbowl just waiting to see this commercial and then found out it was only aired on Time Warner Cable. Go frack yourself, AMC Marketing Manager that buys ad space.), here’s the entire Superbowl ad that only aired on Time Warner Cable.
It’s a great little commercial, although that family keeps a lot of fresh meat around the house. I wouldn’t recommend that for the average Zombie Apocalypse Survivor family. Seriously though, AMC could have had a whole Superbowl marketing campaign, imagine sending a Zombie Reporter to Superbowl Player Media day, or two zombies, one wearing a Ravens jersey, one wearing a 49’ers, fighting over a human head in a mock Zombie football game.
Another group of production stills have come out from the first episode of the second half of season three, The Suicide King. We get a look at what kind of madness we can expect from The Walking Dead for the remainder of season three. All indicators point toward a manic, bloody, insanely gory thrill ride, you’ll know where to find me on Sunday nights at 9PM.
The premiere of the back half of season three of AMC and Robert Kirkman‘s The Walking Dead is fast approaching and AMC is pulling out all the bells and whistles to get returning fans and new viewers to tune in. A $4 million dollar 30 second Superbowl ad and a slew of television spots will be making the rounds on the Internet soon.
In addition we’ve got the episode titles and air dates for the second half of season three. You can check out the full schedule below:
Episode 3.09: “The Suicide King” – February 10, 2013: The Governor (David Morrissey) plans an assault on the prison, but Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the other survivors might just attack first! Written by Evan Reilly; directed by Lesli Linka Glatter.
Episode 10: “Home” – February 17, 2013
Episode 11: “I Ain’t a Judas” – February 24, 2013
Episode 12: “Clear” – March 3, 2013
Episode 13: “Pale Horse” – March 10, 2013
Episode 14: “Killer Within, Part II” – March 17, 2013

Episode 16: “Welcome to the Tombs” (directed by Ernest Dickerson) – March 31, 2013
Which of those episode titles intrigues you the most? “I Ain’t a Judas” is the one that really jumps out to me. Could this be the big Meryl and Daryl episode? I doubt their going to have much time for a reunion considering the teaser trailer below, it looks like they will have their hands full just staying alive.
The network has also released a new teaser trailer for the season three:
It may seem pointless to speculate about where a show that is known for it’s twists, turns, and surprise zombie attacks will go, but look at it this way: it’s goona take me a lot longer to write this than it will for you to read it. (more…)
