The fifth season of AMC’s The Walking Dead has come to an end, and though there is an upcoming spin-off prequel series Fear The Walking Dead to look forward to, for now, the adventures of Rick, Daryl, Michonne, Glenn and all the rest have come to a close until next fall. Which makes this the perfect time to reflect on those characters, and actors, still with the show – and those who aren’t.
Like many shows with a high body count (Game of Thrones is a particular standout here as well), there has been a lot of turnover as far as actors on The Walking Dead are concerned. In fact, from the original group in season one, only the characters of Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Carl (Chandler Riggs), Glenn (Steven Yeun), Carol (Melissa McBride), and Daryl (Norman Reedus) remain, and of those, only Rick, Carl, and Glenn have been there for every outing. »

The big takeaway tonight from a panel screening of The Walking Dead season 5 finale, held tonight at the Egyptian theater as part of AMC’s Emmys push: it turns out that behind the scenes, the show is just as much of a Ricktatorship as it is onscreen. Or to put it more clearly, Andrew Lincoln is far and away the most beloved – by his costars – member of the cast. Again and again, cast members went out of their way to praise Lincoln as a supportive coworker who as often as… »
It's only been a few weeks since AMC's The Walking Dead brought Season 5 to a close, and now fans are starting to look forward to Season 6, which starts production next month in Atlanta. AMC has released a new preview for the upcoming season, where cast members tease what is in store for the fans. What do they know about Season 6? In short, nothing, but showrunner Scott M. Gimple does know the plan, although he isn't saying much.
The showrunner/executive producer reveals that every eight episodes of The Walking Dead is essentially a new show, and that the first eight episodes of Season 6 will be vastly different than the last eight of Season 5. Executive producer Denise M. Huth reveals that the show is all about taking these characters and putting them in situations they haven't been in before, and "taking more and more away from them." She also teases that, »
The Walking Dead season six is still months away—seriously, we have roughly six more months before Rick Grimes and Co. return in October—but that hasn't stopped Robert Kirkman, the comic book co-creator and executive producer of the hit AMC series, from sharing scoop. Kirkman, along with star Steven Yeun and AMC's Charlie Collier, discussed the show and what's ahead at the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas. At the end of season five, Morgan (Lennie James) was finally reunited with Rick (Andrew Lincoln), but when the two finally came face-to-face again, Rick had just shot a man in the head. Not exactly a very welcoming image for Morgan in Alexandria. Expect a "completely »
I'm watching a live-stream of the "Walking Dead" panel at the ongoing Nab Show - an annual trade show produced by the National Association of Broadcasters, which takes place every April at the Las Vegas Convention Center, hoping something crucial about next season (season 6) will be shared by the show's creators. And, thus far, over an hour into the conversation which includes creator Robert Kirkman and co-star Steven Yeun, the most noteworthy item came from Kirkman who shared that Rick and Morgan's reunion (which ended the most recent season) will be "the spine of Season 6." He didn't elaborate, as expected (he can't give it all away obviously), but what he did say may be enough to get fans of the series excited for what's may be to come. After last season's finale, when Morgan (Lennie James) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln) are reintroduced again, I did wonder whether this signaled a changing of leadership, »

Already missing The Walking Dead? Sadly, there won't be any new episodes until Fear The Walking Dead starts later this summer, but we do have a massive behind-the-scenes photo gallery from the Season 5 finale to help tide you over.
For those this missed our recent coverage, don't forget to check out my exclusive Season 5 retrospective interview with Andrew Lincoln, and be on the lookout for more interviews over the coming months to see what the rest of the cast has to say about the latest season and what's ahead. Season 5 will be available on Blu-ray / DVD on August 25th, so there will be details on bonus features, the collector's edition case, and opportunities to win free copies between now and then.

Once more into the grim unknown, friends. The Walking Dead is over for a another season, and while the prequel show will ease the pain of leaving Rick and the survivors for an extended period, it’s a placebo medicine at the very most. There’s no substitute for the real thing.
After an explosive finale, there are inevitably a raft of questions left over ahead of the sixth season, and luckily there’s a long time to pour over them and come up with your own theories, as the fanbase inevitably will.
As usual, the fifth season brought death, new enemies and a new power dynamic, and while most fans will have been suitably distracted enough by the narrative, AMC did their usual trick of stuffing the background with references and in-jokes to reward those fans who watch again and again.
But which were the best and the »

With The Walking Dead Season 5 now wrapped up, I can confidently say that I feel this was the strongest season of the series. With new characters, new threats, and new zombie creations, there was a little something for everyone and it feels like the show has really hit its stride with balancing action and character development. I had a chance to catch up with Andrew Lincoln, following the Season 5 finale, and he talked about working with the new cast, his zombie fight from the finale, his favorite scene from the season, and shaving off his beard:
This season has really been a great journey for readers, seeing the group on the road for most of the season and finding a new home in Alexandria. What has the experience been like for you as an actor, starting out in the first season with a smaller cast and having this massive addition »

"For the past five years, we have followed the amazing tale of survival that is “The Walking Dead.” With the end of every season, comes the knowledge that-- for the moment-- we must part with the characters we have come to embrace.

Zombie drama "The Walking Dead" continues to set ratings records for AMC. The fifth season finale is now the highest rated in the history of the series with 15.8 million viewers. The cable network expects those numbers to exceed 20 million when time-shifted viewing is added. Spoilers Ahead. In a separate postmortem, Adam Bryant asks if Rick (Andrew Lincoln) is really in charge again? He also interviews actor Lennie James about his surprise return as fan-favorite character Morgan. In the past, he was "a homicidal maniac reeling from the death of his wife and son" but now "seems to be a zen warrior who wants to preserve life at all costs." TV Guide -Break- Taylor Swift takes home three trophies at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday. She is now the reigning Artist of the Year, and also won for Song ("Shake it Off") and Lyrics ("Blank Space"). Justin Timberlake was awarded the Innovator Award. »
Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Walking Dead” season five finale, titled “Conquer.”
The biggest surprise of last night’s “The Walking Dead” finale wasn’t who died, but rather who returned. Lennie James’ fan favorite character Morgan, originally introduced in the pilot and central to the exceptional third season episode “Clear,” finally caught up with Rick Grimes’ gang. He fought back a new threat (the villainous wolves, who we’re sure to see more of next season), rescued Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Aaron (Ross Marquand) from almost certain doom, and arrived in Alexandria just in time to see Rick (Andrew Lincoln) put a bullet in world class jerk Pete (Corey Brill). Except the peace-minded Morgan doesn’t know what Pete has done, or what’s going on Alexandria, or what’s happened to Rick since the events of “Clear.”
That sets up a tantalizing conflict for season six, »

Last night, fans finally got their first brief look at AMC's The Walking Dead spinoff entitled Fear the Walking Dead, slated to debut sometime this summer. Unfortunately, this 15-second teaser didn't give us a glimpse at any of the main characters. But it did give us a glimpse at Los Angeles just before the zombie apocalypse spreads throughout the globe.
While we wait for the next trailer to debut, we're breaking down everything we know about Fear the Walking Dead. To get you fully prepared for this highly-anticipated spinoff, we take a look at the characters, the story and the location. Take a look at our handy guide to all things Fear the Walking Dead below:
1 Origins Of the Zombie Outbreak
The teaser sets up that there have been "reports of a strange virus" in five states, while showing a seemingly normal Los Angeles before the zombie epidemic starts to spread en masse. »
Even with a much-awaited reunion with a character from seasons past and much more, one of the best things from last night's Season 5 finale of the AMC zombie apocalypse series The Walking Dead had to be the "Oh sunshine, you don't get both" line from Melissa McBride's Carol to Andrew Lincoln's Rick. Well, when it comes to ratings, Sunday's 90-minute season ender did in fact get both, with total viewership and adults 18-49 results hitting finale records. The Walking Dead… »
The Walking Dead, Season 5, Episode 16: “Conquer”
Directed by Greg Nicotero
Airs Sundays at 9pm (Et) on AMC
Long live the Ricktatorship!
Tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead is very reminiscent of M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village. For a long time, Alexandria has been living in blissful ignorance, completely secure in their own laws and doctrines, and thinking that they’re closed off from the scourge of humanity, unaware that eventually humanity creeps into any safe haven one creates. People can put up walls and create illusions of happiness and monotony, but violence will eventually trickle through.
This is evident in the final scenes of the episode, where the trio of human violence far outweighs the violence inflicted by the walkers. Surely the dead are threats, but not as much as what the viewers see with the humans’ ability to self-sabotage. »

Spoiler Alert: This story contains details of last night's Season 5 finale of The Walking Dead. For the second season ender in a row no major character died on AMC's blockbuster zombie apocalypse series last night, but there was more than enough blood and guts to go round — as there has been all this action-heavy cycle. The Season 5 finale of The Walking Dead saw Rick Grimes taking firm control of the suburban Alexandria Safe Zone after the Andrew Lincoln-played character… »
The Walking Dead finished its fifth season with a bang — literally! While there was plenty of fretting from fans that this episode could be the end of beloved Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), it was Pete Anderson (Corey Brill) who was at the receiving end of a Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) bullet. There were plenty of pivotal moments throughout "Conquer," but here are the ones everyone will be talking about until the show returns to AMC for season 6. Welcome Back (Again) Morgan "Conquer" opened with Morgan Jones [...] »
AMC‘s The Walking Dead Conquer TV Show Review. The Walking Dead, Season 5, Episode 16: ‘Conquer,’ by its very title, was a repudiation of the last episode’s apparent low-point, for the season. To put it simply, for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), and other strays, from the road, the season finale was a case of do, [...]

AMC‘s The Walking Dead Try TV Show Review. The Walking Dead, Season 5, Episode 15: ‘Try,’ set up a tipping point, for head townie, Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh), and head roadie, Rick (Andrew Lincoln), over how threats should be handled, and just who most constituted that threat, domestically. I like Reznor as much as the next occasional [...]

“The Walking Dead” is back in off-season mode, which takes on a slightly different quality this year, as the machinery revs up on “Walking Dead Inc.”
Normally, the season finale would mean a whole lot of reruns and breathless teases to keep fans salivating until the program’s return in October. This summer, however, will mark the debut of what amounts to a second front in the form of the spinoff “Fear the Walking Dead,” seeking to expand upon AMC’s 16 weeks a year of blockbuster ratings.
So while the creative state of the show is significant, what might be more intriguing now are the larger business issues surrounding the franchise.
In some respects, few hit series are better suited to launching self-sustained entities – it’s not like the L.A. prequel is going to board a plane for Alexandria or engage in “NCIS”-like crossover conference calls – although there »
