'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, »

Watch 'The Walking Dead' Cast Speculate About 'Chaos' of Season 6

10 April 2015 9:03 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Walking Dead" cast does not know what's coming next in Season 6, but they just assume "bad things," "chaos" and "aggressive" confrontations with The Wolves are ahead. They're probably right! Season 5 just ended in late March, and Season 6 won't even start filming until early May, so the cast is in the dark until they get the first scripts. Most of the producers are in the dark as well, since only showrunner Scott M. Gimple knows the exact plan for the next 16 episodes.

AMC just released a 3-minute video with the cast and crew speculating on what's ahead in Season 6. In this way, they are just like the fans -- looking forward to seeing what happens with Morgan Jones and Rick Grimes; worrying about the "W" Wolves; and wondering how Alexandria will move forward after Pete just killed Reg Monroe in front of leader Deanna Monroe, then Rick turned around and »

‘Walking Dead’ Finale Q&A: Steven Yeun Talks Glenn’s Decision and Why Fans Shouldn’t Focus On Death

30 March 2015 6:13 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.”

Season five of “The Walking Dead” was a rough one for Steven Yeun’s Glenn, one of the few original characters still remaining on the show. After reuniting with his wife Maggie (Lauren Cohan), they wound up prisoners of a cannibal cult at Terminus, suffered a devastating blow with the death of her sister Beth (Emily Kinney) and also lost their friends Bob (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) and Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman). The bright light at the end of it all was Alexandria — a peaceful community where they might be able to settle down, and even have a family. But when the incompetence of certain Alexandrians resulted in yet another tragic death — R.I.P. Noah (Tyler James Williams) — Glenn was faced with a moral dilemma: What to do about Nicholas (Michael Traynor »

'Walking Dead' finale, 'Killing Jesus' draw big Sunday numbers

30 March 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The latest season finale of "The Walking Dead" and the premiere of National Geographic's "Killing Jesus" both delivered notable numbers on Sunday (March 29).  [Insert facile resurrection/Zombie Jesus joke.] The three-hour broadcast of "Killing Jesus" delivered 3.7 million viewers, the largest total viewership of any program in NatGeo history. "Killing Jesus" also did the second highest household rating in NatGeo history and did the network's top rating in its key 25-54 demo since "Killing Kennedy" in November 2013. Check out my exhaustive and amusing coverage from the "Killing Jesus" set in Morocco. The 90-minute finale of "The Walking Dead," meanwhile, drew 15.8 million viewers, including 10.4 million among adults 18-49. It was the zombie drama's highest-rated finale ever. AMC boasts that for the 16-episode season, all 16 episodes ranked among the Top 50 telecasts on all of TV in the 18-49 demo and among the Top 20 entertainment telecasts for the season. "Talking Dead" drew 7.5 million viewers, including 4.9 million in the 18-49 demo, »

‘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, »

The Walking Dead, Ep. 5.16: “Conquer” explores the monster called humanity

30 March 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Walking Dead, Season 5, Episode 16: “Conquer”

Written by Scott M. Gimple and Beth Hoffman

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. »

The Walking Dead: Find Out Who's Returning in "Scary" Season 6!

30 March 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Walking Dead is the Madonna of TV shows and heading for another "reinvention" for season six, according to executive producer and showrunner Scott M. Gimple. Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick read a letter from Gimple following the season five finale that promised new twists ahead. "Season 6 for a good while now, humans have been the bigger threat. At the start of our next season, that will change. I said the show reinvents itself every 8 eps, and we're doing it again, friendos," Gimple said in the letter. "Now that these characters know they have what it takes to survive, what are they going to do with that power? How will they choose to live? Beyond answering those questions, we're »

The Walking Dead season 5 episode 16 review: Conquer

30 March 2015 2:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Walking Dead shows no signs of rot as it signs off its 5th season with a phenomenally well written, well-directed movie-length finale...

This review contains spoilers.

5.16 Conquer

There's something to be said for The Walking Dead's expanded season finale episode from a sheer television standpoint. A 90 minute finale just feels like something special for a show that is already something special as far as television goes. There's room in the episode. While the set pieces aren't as impressive as Carol's assault on Terminus in No Sanctuary, there's more space to actually build up anticipation, and the multiple close calls all worked this week because it felt like, at any point, someone was going to die. On a show like The Walking Dead, Joe Bob Briggs' drive-in rules apply (anybody can die at any moment), but that goes doubly in a season finale.

‘The Walking Dead’ Finale Recap: All Life is Precious in ‘Conquer’

29 March 2015 9:58 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.”

After a season that unflinchingly racked up the body count, this year’s “Walking Dead” finale was a surprisingly forgiving affair, with all of our group members surviving the hour, despite close calls for Glenn, Daryl, Sasha, Rick and Gabriel (although I’m not sure anyone would mourn the flibbertigibbet priest at this point — especially after he left the gate open and allowed who knows what inside). After all the teases involving Glenn and baseball bats, I’m glad that he made it through another year relatively unscathed.

The most satisfying surprise of the episode was how much of a role Morgan played — Rick’s first post-apocalyptic buddy has been elusive this season, but the hour opened with a much more lucid Morgan than we saw when he last encountered Rick in “Clear, »

The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale Photos & Preview Videos

23 March 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The letter "W" carved into the rotting flesh of walkers, the flickering flames of a campfire in the distance, and dismembered body parts similar to the remains left at Noah's neighborhood mean that more than the living dead are prowling the wilderness outside Alexandria's walls. Daryl and Aaron were on the trail of someone (or perhaps a group of people) who might have a sick perspective on the world in last night's episode of AMC's The Walking Dead and their search continues in two photos from "Conquer", the 90-minute season five finale that airs on Sunday night. We also have two preview videos that hint at Rick's fate following his gritty fight with Pete.

"Episode 5.16: Conquer - Daryl finds trouble while on a run; Rick and the group feel like outsiders in Alexandria, where trouble approaches the gates."

Greg Nicotero Signs 2-Year AMC Deal to Produce, Direct Both 'Walking Dead' Shows

19 March 2015 6:29 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Greg Nicotero is arguably the Mvp of "The Walking Dead," perhaps even more so than comic book writer/TV producer Robert Kirkman. Nicotero is known as the special effects guru, but he also executive produces the show and has directed 11 episodes so far. He has four episodes under his belt for Season 5, including the premiere, Episode 9, Episode 12 and the upcoming 90-minute Episode 16 finale (March 29).

So it's no surprise that AMC wants to keep him in the family. According to Deadline, he just signed a new two-year deal with the network. The contract has him continue as an executive producer and episode director on both the main "Walking Dead" show and the upcoming companion series/spinoff, while also allowing him to develop new projects for the network.

Maybe now would be a good time for AMC to greenlight a show just about Nicotero's Zombie School. Showrunner Scott Gimple suggested the title "America's Next Top Walker, »

Watch: ‘Walking Dead’ Star Norman Reedus is ‘Not Afraid’ to Play Daryl Gay

5 March 2015 5:07 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus weighed in on the possibility of his character, Daryl Dixon, being gay in a “Conan” interview on Tuesday.

“If that’s the story they gave me, I would rock that story. I’m not afraid of it,” Reedus said.

While most of the characters in the show are derived from the comic books on which the series is based, Reedus’ character was created exclusively for the AMC drama, making his backstory an easy target for speculation.

Reedus said he discussed the idea of Daryl being gay early on with then-executive producer Frank Darabont, who exited the show after season one.

“I (was) like ‘Hell yeah, let’s do it,'” Reedus recalled saying to Darabont when asked if he’d be open to the possibility.

“Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman has talked about Daryl’s sexuality before, first in the letters column of the »

The Walking Dead’s Tovah Feldshuh & Alexandra Breckenridge Discuss Deanna & Jessie

5 March 2015 2:03 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Not everything about the Alexandria Safe Zone is exactly "safe", but under the leadership of former U.S. congresswoman Deanna Monroe, residents like the charming Jessie have been able to live out a reasonably normal existence in the zombie apocalypse on AMC's The Walking Dead. Two intriguing additions to the show, the characters of Deanna and Jessie have roots in the comic books and should affect events of future episodes in major ways. In recent interviews, Tovah Feldshuh and Alexandra Breckenridge discussed their respective characters' backstories, current states, and what could be in store for their walled-off community in the near future. *Spoiler warning for those who haven't yet seen the latest episode of The Walking Dead.*

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Tovah Feldshuh discussed getting the role of Deanna, a character who is a man (Douglas) in Robert Kirkman's comic book series:
