Fear The Walking Dead: showrunner discusses details

19 May 2015 12:49 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fear The Walking Dead showrunner Dave Erickson talks timeline, zombie origins, government links, number of seasons, and more...

Have you been wondering what to expect from Fear The Walking Dead? You're not alone. We've known for a while that it is a prequel set in La, beginning while Rick is in his coma, but beyond that we didn't know much at all.

That is, until Dave Erickson (Fear The Walking Dead showrunner, Sons Of Anarchy alum), chatted to The Hollywood Reporter and cleared a few things up.

Here are some highlights from the interview...

It will indeed be set during Rick's coma, but don't call it a prequel: "We are loosely covering the period of time that [The Walking Dead's] Rick (Andrew Lincoln) was in his coma in season one. We're able to watch and experience the things that he missed. It's more of a parallel story than a prequel; imagine the opening »

Fear The Walking Dead: 14 Things to Know about the Walking Dead Companion Series

18 May 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

We’ve been covering the Walking Dead spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead, for quite some time now, but we still don’t know all that much about the show besides the fact that it takes place prior to the events of the original series and stars Kim Dickens as a guidance counselor, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey as her kids, and Cliff Curtis as a divorced teacher. However, during a recent interview with THR, Fear the Walking Dead showrunner Dave Erickson revealed tons of new story details, discussed the possibility of Walking Dead character crossovers and also talked about his long-term plan for the show. Check out the highlights of the conversation below. Fear the Walking Dead just went into production and is due to air this summer on AMC.

Fear The Walking Dead Billed As A “Parallel Story” Rather Than Prequel

18 May 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead may be following the footsteps of greatness, given that its parent show has become an undisputed cornerstone of the network’s line-up, but that doesn’t mean the spinoff can’t escape the shadow of AMC’s flagship to an entirely different, flesh-munching beast.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Dave Erickson provided an in-depth look at the upcoming zombie series, how it differs from The Walking Dead, and why it ought to be referred to as a “companion series,” as opposed to an out-and-out spinoff.

We are loosely covering the period of time that [The Walking Dead’s] Rick (Andrew Lincoln) was in his coma in season one. We’re able to watch and experience the things that he missed. It’s more of a parallel story than a prequel; imagine the opening where Rick gets shot and goes in his coma — that day »

Fear The Walking Dead: Everything We Know So Far

13 May 2015 7:47 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


The Walking Dead has already established itself as one of the most-watched shows on TV, with audience figures in the United States alone regularly topping 15 million.

Following Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) et al in the wake of a zombie apocalypse, and based on the graphic novels of the same name, the show started with a six episode run back in 2010, with 5.35m people watching the S1 premiere. Fast forward to 2014, and the first episode of season 5 was watched by over 17m.

Not content with having such a large share of viewers between October and March, as well as the graphic novels and video games, AMC now want zombies to take over your living room all year round with the spin-off series Fear The Walking Dead.

This was confirmed back in March, around the time season 5 was coming to a close, and is set to air this summer to keep »

Could The Walking Dead Get A Movie? Here's What Andrew Lincoln Says

27 April 2015 9:14 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Walking Dead is certainly one of the more popular shows currently showing on cable, having built a huge fanbase since its debut on AMC back in 2010. But could that success be transferred to the big screen? If it were up to series star Andrew Lincoln, he would jump at the opportunity in a heartbeat. Inquirer recently had the chance to sit down with the actor - who plays group leader and former sheriff Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead - and it was during this chat that Lincoln discussed how enthusiastic he would be to see the acclaimed zombie show get a movie to add to the continuity. Discussing the recent deal that Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman made with Universal Pictures, the interviewer pitched the actor on the idea of the series getting a feature, and Lincoln responded, That would be amazing.

10 Things You Didnt Know About The Walking Dead Cast

24 April 2015 2:48 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


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. »

‘Walking Dead’ Panel: Cast And Creators Talk Deaths, Lack Of The Word “Zombie”

21 April 2015 12:47 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

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… »

'Walking Dead' Season 6 Preview Teases a Very Different Show

16 April 2015 6:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 6: Is Glenn Going to Die? What's Happening With Morgan?

15 April 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

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 »

'Walking Dead' Creator Says Rick and Morgan's Reunion Will Be "The Spine" of Season 6

14 April 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

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, »

The Walking Dead: 16 Easter Eggs You Probably Missed In Season 5

2 April 2015 6:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


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 »

Exclusive Interview: The Walking Dead Season 5 Retrospective with Andrew Lincoln

1 April 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

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 »

‘Walking Dead’ Finale Q&A: Lennie James Talks Morgan’s Return and Season 6

30 March 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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, »
