Warning: Spoilers for The Walking Dead season 6 follow... The Walking Dead producers really painted themselves into a corner with that Season 6 closer. Ordinarily, this is one of the most divisive shows on television. It's wildly, outrageously popular and successful, but if the Internet reaction to the series is anything to judge by, it is either the greatest piece of fiction to ever grace the small screen or an abomination of bad storytelling. I don't happen to think either is true. That aside, what was remarkable about last season's finale is that for once most of the fanbase/viewership was united. Audiences were already feeling burned by the Glenn fake-out earlier in the season. So to then to tease the arrival of the villain Negan and his deadly bat Lucille for months only to have him show up for about a half a second and then leave us to wonder Which »

Update: Robert Kirkman clarified, and joked about, his Grrm quote in a series of tweets:

"Disappointed" is probably the wrong word. I was just joking about how I would have handled that situation. Love Got, love Grrm.

George Rr Martin is a far better writer than I'll ever be. And I'm loving the new season of Game Of Thrones. It's my favorite show on TV!

There's a funky kind of nerd rivalry happening with "Game of Thrones" and "The Walking Dead." They are both insanely popular, with crossover fan bases, and both based on ongoing print series that are now slightly-to-very different from the TV versions. Twd creator Robert Kirkman just did an interview with Rolling Stone, »

It has been nearly two months since "The Walking Dead" Season 6 finale, which ticked off most of the Internet and left fans scrambling for clues/spoilers on who Negan killed. AMC will share the answers (we hope) when Season 7 premieres in October, and Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) recently told Entertainment Weekly he's been asked who Negan killed "probably about a million times."
Clearly fans want to know what happened, and Reedus has decided to interpret it as "a huge compliment to how that episode was executed and the acting in it and the writing of it" that people are still talking about it. However, he knows he and the actors may be getting a ton of fan questions, but they are not facing fan wrath as much as showrunner Scott Gimple and comic book writer/executive producer Robert Kirkman.
"Those poor guys," Reedus told EW, laughing. "That's another level of »

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.You won't have to wait long to see Norman Reedus back on AMC as his new unscripted motorcycle series, Ride with Norman Reedus, debuts June 12 on the network, but you will have to wait another four-and-a-half months to see if Daryl Dixon survived that season 6 cliffhanger of The Walking Dead. How often has the actor been asked who died since the season finale aired? "Probably about a zillion times," Reedus said when he stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) Thursday morning. "Like, all the time." But he also says »

How good are the new Walking Dead episodes coming this fall? Well, according to star Norman Reedus, Season 7 might just bring about the apocalypse for real. Because it's just too darn good. The actor, who plays fan-favorite Daryl Dixon, was last seen on Negan's chopping block as one of the possible victims who succumb to a death blow from Lucille. While he won't even hint at who really dies in the opening moments of the Season 7 premiere, he did have this to say about the show's return sometime later this year.
"Trust me. I think probably the planet is going to explode. That's my feeling. It's so good. Every time we go on a promotional tour talking about what's going to come, we all say 'Oh my God, it's amazing. I can't wait for you to see it.' But it continually surprises me how this show grows and is »
“Trust me. I think probably the planet is going to explode,” said Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon, on Entertainment Weekly Radio. “That’s my feeling. It’s so good. Every time we go on a promotional tour talking about what’s going to come, we all say ‘Oh my God, it’s amazing. I can’t wait for you to see it.’ But it continually surprises me how this show grows and is put together and the execution of it – no pun intended. It blows my mind. It just continually reaches a new plateau every single time, and this is the highest plateau we’ve ever been. So just wait. It’s worth the wait, trust me.”

Adult Swim wants to cut a new swath through its audience.
The Time Warner-owned cable programmer that tilts toward millennial viewers and younger generations with animated fare shown in primetime and overnights, said it would release more original programming via streaming video for daytime viewing as part of an effort to spur its audience to increase consumption of its oddball but cult-favorite content.
As part of its slate of programs, expected to be cited next week during a presentation by Time Warner’s Turner unit, Adult Swim will unveil its revival of “Samurai Jack,” the former Cartoon Network series that has not produced an original episode since 2004. Original creator and executive producer Genndy Tartakovsky will continue the epic story of a young prince from feudal Japan vies »

It was bat swing heard round the world when Negan swung his bat, Lucille, down on an apparently beloved Walking Dead character's head in the season 6 finale. It was literally only heard as well because as you probably know by now The Walking Dead left the character a mystery. The decision to end The Walking Dead season 6 finale on a cliffhanger after so much build up to Negan has not been a popular one.
The Walking Dead showrunner, Scott Gimple, and comic creator, Robert Kirkman, have remained (mostly) silent on the twist. Not including when they gushed about how awesome the cliffhanger is on the never-ending hype train that is Talking Dead. Now Robert Kirkman has issued an apology and the effort is more than bit lackluster.
Are you ready to meet Augustus Ezekiel in "The Walking Dead" Season 7?
Before the Season 6 finale frustrated fans with that cliffhanger, it introduced Morgan to a couple of guys in armor. They looked like characters from The Kingdom, and a new Season 7 casting call appears to confirm that we will be meeting the leader of that survivor community, a guy named Ezekiel.
TVLine confirmed that Twd is casting for someone with the code name Augustus, but even they acknowledged it's really Ezekiel. Spoil the Dead got the full casting call details, showing that the character is meant to be a guest star in Season 7, arriving in Episode 3, and potentially staying on for a "multiple year series option":

The Walking Dead is going to get very interesting, and just a bit strange, in Season 7. As previously reported, it is all but confirmed that Rick and his crew of Survivors will meet up with King Ezekiel and The Kingdom. TVLine reports that casting is already underway for this fan-favorite character from the comic books. And his introduction in The Walking Dead TV show might be more anticipated than Negan himself.
A casting call has gone out for a character called Augustus. But this is just a clever coverup for the real character this particular actor will be playing. Augustus is described exactly as one would describe King Ezekiel, and it's kind of hard to hide what the popular AMC show is about to do. Ezekiel is the self-proclaimed King of The Kingdom. He is called 'flamboyant and wise, nice and weird.' Most important, he will serve as an »
The following article contains potential spoilers regarding Season 7 of The Walking Dead. If you’d rather be surprised, look at the flowers or at anything but this.
The Walking Dead is getting the keys to The Kingdom.
TVLine has learned that AMC has issued a casting call for the recurring role of Augustus, a character who bears a striking resemblance to Ezekiel, who, in Robert Kirkman’s series of graphic novels, is the self-proclaimed king of The Kingdom. A doozy of a character, His Highness is described as flamboyant and wise, nice and weird.

In an apocalyptic situation, you would think that the best kind of people to encounter would be survivalists, right? Survival is in their name, so they oughta be pretty good at it. But, after the crew of the Abigail met the Armageddon-ready Geary family in this week’s Fear the Walking Dead, that notion was so thoroughly dispelled that not one but two characters wound up being turned. Who were the unlucky stiffs? Read on…

At a screening of the divisive season six finale of “The Walking Dead,” showrunner Scott M. Gimple assured the audience they weren’t toying with people when it came to the ending of “Last Days of Earth.”
“We never intend to f— with people,” Gimple said when the moderator, director Paul Feig, asked him how beholden he feels to the comics. “You all just saw the episode and I want to go on record and say we were not trying to f— with you.”
The showrunner added that even though there may be tweaks, like certain characters out or under-living their comic book counterpart, at the end of the day they are telling the story of the comics.
“We have 153 issues of story to draw from,” Gimple said. “I think it’s an amazing thing to have that as a basis. We may be remixing it, enhancing it, emphasizing parts of it, »

After the heart-stopping conclusion of The Walking Dead‘s sixth season finale last week, the second season premiere of Fear the Walking Dead might have felt like an episode of The Love Boat by comparison.
However, it was anything but smooth sailing for enigmatic Strand and the uncomfortably blended families beating a hasty retreat from Los Angeles aboard his yacht, the Abigail. So, before you drop anchor in the comments section, let’s review the highlights, shall we?

The Walking Dead Season 6 finale left audiences stunned and angry. Soon after it aired, revealing the cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers, many fans stomped their feet, demanding to know who Negan killed right that instant. For months it had been promised that Jeffrey Dean Morgan would be introduced as this fan-favorite character from the comic books. Along with his arrival would come a stinging death blow for one of the Alexandria survivors. That happened, but the identity of Negan's victim is being kept a secret until The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere. While he won't offer a hint as to who it is, director of the cliffhanger episode Last Day on Earth, Greg Nicotero is teasing what this death looks like from Negan's point of view.
After a rousing game of Eenie Meenie, Negan chose a member of Rick's extended family to bash in the head with his trusty baseball bat Lucille. »
