The Walking Dead showrunner on whether we might see a time jump in season 8

6 April 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With season seven of the AMC show that never ends bringing in the worst numbers for the finale in five years, it’s safe to say the folks at AMC are looking to the future of The Walking Dead – while still longing for the glory days of old.

As fans of the comic will know, a pretty hefty time jump is on the horizon, and showrunner Scott M. Gimple has spoken about the subject and whether we’ll see it in season eight during a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

For the people who read the comics, they’re going to be expecting [the time jump],” says Gimple. “I will say there are things that happen in that time jump that are referred to that are super interesting. And thus we might see some of that stuff; it might not be the same sort of jump, or we’ll do that two »

Question: I’m already having Walking Dead withdrawal. Got anything on Season 8 yet? — Bud

Ausiello: As a matter of fact, yes. Remember in the finale, when Sasha said she wasn’t giving up on Eugene, even though he’d reverted to his most spineless self? That was “a hint to what the story is,” showrunner Scott Gimple recently told TVLine. “It certainly looked like he was still a Savior. But is that going to haunt him… change him? »

The Walking Dead Won’t Pull A Game Of Thrones And Surpass The Source Material

6 April 2017 11:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At long last, The Walking Dead has caught up to the “All-Out War” arc from the comics, which should please many fans. Season 7 had been slowly building to it for the past several months and with the recent finale truly setting things off, we can fully expect AMC’s hit series to dive headfirst into the storyline once it returns – that much has been confirmed already. But should we be worried that it’s going to soon pull a Game of Thrones and actually surpass the source material?

According to showrunner Scott M. Gimple, that probably won’t happen. Speaking to THR, here’s what he said when asked if we’ll soon see the television version of Twd move past the comics.

“With some plans we have for the future, I don’t think so. It’s unlikely, but it depends where the book stops.”

Expect a Little Time Jump When The Walking Dead Returns

5 April 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Warning: spoilers for the Walking Dead comic books below! We've got a long six months ahead before The Walking Dead returns for season eight. In that time, we've got plenty to ruminate on. Everything that happens in the season finale, from the general slowness of the season to Daryl's mysterious wooden soldier find, is fodder for critical thinking. Taking all that into consideration, showrunner Scott M. Gimple has given us something else to mull over: a season eight time jump. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Gimple admitted there may be a small temporal shift in the near future. When asked if season eight would kick off with a leap forward, he said, "I won't be specific about that, but there will be no mind-blowing temporal shifts. But there might be a bit of a jump, but I don't think it'll be 'oh my god'-level." It may seem like nothing, »

Why 'The Walking Dead' Needs More Action in Season 8

5 April 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

The Walking Dead season 7 has ended and as Negan declared in the season finale, it is time for war. From its divisive season premiere to its final moments, The Walking Dead has been widely criticized for season 7 being too slow. Yet in a recent interview with TVLine, Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple promised that season 8 would be much faster paced than season 7. This is only can be viewed as a positive because The Walking Dead is at its best when it is in the thick of the action and nothing but a terrible chore when building up to that action.

The Walking Dead Season 7 Finale Posts Disappointing Ratings

4 April 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I think we can all agree that The Walking Dead kicked off its seventh season with a bang, dropping two character deaths on us in a brutal and shocking fashion. It was a strong start and one which had us hopeful that the remaining episodes would follow suit. And while it wasn’t all bad, the first half of the season, on the whole, was definitely a bit too sluggish and meandering, drawing out storylines far too long and delaying the inevitable.

When the show returned from its hiatus, however, things picked up significantly as The Walking Dead barrelled towards its conclusion. That came this past Sunday night, when the tense finale aired and laid the groundwork for the “All Out War” arc, which will make up the bulk of season 8. However, even despite the fairly solid second half and anticipation being quite high for the final episode, the ratings just weren’t there. »

The Walking Dead: Everything We Know About Season 8

4 April 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Before the seventh season of The Walking Dead was even halfway over, AMC renewed the show for season eight. This means we've got plenty of apocalyptic zombie horror to look forward to, all the way through mid-2018. So, if you were feeling bored by the recent season's single storyline pacing, or find yourself looking far, far ahead to a time when Glenn's tragic, graphic death is a distant memory, season eight is the place to go. Let's go over what we know so far. The Season Will Kick Off With the Show's 100th Episode Typically, it's a huge deal when any TV show hits this triple-digit benchmark. It must be especially true for Twd, seeing as pretty much every season has been only 16 episodes in length. Considering this accomplishment is also a season premiere, chances are the show could pull out all the stops in a way they might never have before. »

The Walking Dead’s Scott Gimple Says Season 8 Will be “Bigger and More Intense”

3 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Season 7 of The Walking Dead literally ended a day ago and Scott Gimple’s already touting season 8.  We still haven’t even gotten a full review of season 7 yet.  By many accounts people considered the finale to be “what they expected” and definitely “solid” but not nearly as shocking or mentally long lasting as the premiere of season 7 which basically shocked the entire universe.   The biggest criticism for season 7 was that it was “meandering.”  Too much waiting around and speculation and not enough action.  Apparently there will be a stop to that.

The Walking Dead Season 8 Will Be More “Fast-Moving And Kinetic”

3 April 2017 7:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Walking Dead concluded its seventh season last night and though it was far from the show’s strongest finale, it was a mostly satisfying end to what’s been an otherwise uneven batch of episodes. Admittedly, ever since AMC’s hit series returned from its hiatus things have vastly improved, but still, season 7 won’t be remembered as one of The Walking Dead‘s best. That being said, there was a lot to like about it and already, we’re starting to hear about what’s in store for us once Rick and co. return.

Showrunner Scott M. Gimple spoke to TV Line earlier today and revealed something which should make fans quite happy. Among other things, he said that season 8 will be more “kinetic and fast-moving,” while also noting that there are more twists and turns to come.

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Sunday’s Season 7 finale of The Walking Dead. If you’ve yet to watch, you may want to put off reading.

There are worse ways to get killed off of The Walking Dead.

‘The Walking Dead’ Showrunner on That Finale Death, Rick’s War Against Negan, and a Faster-Paced Season 8

3 April 2017 11:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Warning: If you haven’t watched the Season 7 finale of “The Walking Dead,” spoilers below.]

If Season 7 of “The Walking Dead” was about preparing Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) for battle, Season 8 promises to be a fast-paced all-out war with the show’s ultimate villain, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

Executive producer Scott Gimple told IndieWire that Season 7 ended on a “strange sort of happy ending.” Rick and his Survivors are bruised and battered, but manage to survive an attack from Negan and the “Saviors.” Even the death of Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) gives them an opening to fight back.

It’s a huge contrast to the start of the season, when Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) were killed in the most brutal way possible, at the hand of Negan and his barbed-wire baseball bat “Lucille.” Sasha’s death, in contrast, was almost empowering.

In Sunday’s Season 7 finale of The Walking Dead, in spite of a forewarned act of betrayal — and because of a stunning act of heroism — the rebel alliance managed to drive the Saviors away from Alexandria. But, as Rick & Co. knew all too well, they’d won only a battle, not the war. Here, showrunner Scott Gimple walks TVLine through Sasha’s heartbreaking sacrifice and previews the epic combat in store for Season 8.

‘Walking Dead’ Showrunner Teases Season 8: ‘Beginning of Civilization Is at Stake’

3 April 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the Season 7 finale of “The Walking Dead,” titled “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life.”

The Season 7 finale of “The Walking Dead” officially kicked off the war between Rick’s coalition and Negan’s Saviors. While this is not the first time we have seen Rick and his group go into battle, series showrunner Scott Gimple says that the stakes this time around are much higher for our protagonists.

“It’s essentially for the whole world as far as their experience,” Gimple told Variety. “It isn’t just their little corner. It’s the Kingdom and the Hilltop too. The Governor just wanted them dead. Negan would be happy if everyone was alive and well and working for him. There’s a very basic political idea at play here. They want to live in a fair world instead of having it just be Negan »

7.16 The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life

The Walking Dead has been indulging in extended episodes for most of the seventh season, and for the most part, it hasn't worked out in a way that is positive for the show. The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life, the season finale, splays out over about ninety minutes of television time, once you account for commercials. Does the show do anything with that elongated running time? Not really; as it has throughout the season, The Walking Dead uses expanded episodes merely to pad the advertising slots for sale, and not so much to advance the story. »

'The Walking Dead': 5 Things We Learned From the Season 7 Finale

Remember when The Walking Dead's seventh season began last October with Glenn getting his head crushed beneath Negan's spiked baseball bat – one of the most devastating and polarizing deaths in the entire run of this corpse-strewn series? We've come full circle, in a way: Last night's finale ended with the dearly departed's wife/mother of his child Maggie giving a stirring speech that framed his murder as the loss of a kind man at the hands of a cruel one.

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Sunday’s Season 7 finale of The Walking Dead.

In the weeks leading up to Sunday’s Season 7 finale of The Walking Dead, Rick & Co. had acquired everything that they needed to take on the Saviors, from allies (the Hilltop, the Kingdom, the junkyard collective) to weapons (sorry, Oceanside). And, although Alexandria’s leader didn’t know it yet, he also had back in action Carol — an army unto herself. So, were the rebel forces able to defeat the Saviors?

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 Finale: War Breaks Out in ‘The First Day of the Rest of Your Life’

2 April 2017 7:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the Season 7 finale of “The Walking Dead,” titled “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life.”

Donny Hathaway’s “Someday We’ll All Be Free” was interpreted by many to be about black rights. But in truth, the 1973 song from “Extension of a Man” was written by Edward Howard about the mental pain he saw Hathaway experiencing. The song meant so much to Hathaway that he cried upon hearing the final mix. More than 40 years later, Sasha too finds catharsis in it in the Season 7 finale of “The Walking Dead.”

Sasha listens to it en route with the Saviors to spill the blood of one more Alexandrian. Having caught wind of the Alexandrians making moves, he wants to kill three people as punishment, but Sasha is able to talk him down to just one casualty. She has him wrapped around her fingers, although »
