While it should come as no surprise, AMC officially announced today that Talking Dead will return for a third season. Hosted by Chris Hardwick, the series made some changes during the second season, including expanding the show to a one-hour format.
It hasn’t been confirmed what changes will be seen in the third season of Talking Dead, but we’ll have more details later this year. Based on the success of the show, we expect that the one-hour format will continue and that the show will follow the first airing of The Walking Dead.
*Note: We saw a few comments from confused readers, and wanted to confirm that Talking Dead didn’t start until The Walking Dead Season 2 aired. That is why Talking Dead is returning for a third season, while The Walking Dead will be on its fourth.

This spooky replica house costs less than the real thing, but is still worth a pretty penny. The amazing mini-haunted home is handmade, lit from the inside, and stands nearly two feet tall. It looks like a doll’s house made especially for Wednesday Addams.
The super-detailed replica even includes a tiny replica of Norma Bates staring out the window in her rocking chair, take a video tour here. Other replicas include the house from A Nightmare Before Christmas and the church from Jeepers Creepers.

The Walking Dead‘s third season hasn’t finished airing, but the bulk of filming was completed last year and the focus is now on development of the fourth season. With Scott M. Gimple taking over as showrunner of series, it’s being reported that a few new writers are joining the team.
According to THR, Curtis Gwinn (Death Valley), Channing Powell (White Collar), and Matt Negrete (White Collar) will be working in the writers’ room along with Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, and a number of other writers who contributed to the past seasons.
As for what we can expect from the upcoming season, we’ll have more details after the season 3 finale airs. Until then, here are some quotes from a recent Comic Book Resources interview at PaleyFest:

While films that pit notorious horror icons together to ‘face off’ are far from classic cinema, there is no denying that they can be fun if taken as the mindless entertainment they are intended to be. When Freddy vs. Jason was released, it surpassed expectations by grossing over $80 million domestically. The film almost spawned a sequel, Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash. The follow up never came to fruition, since Sam Raimi wanted to maintain the rights to the Evil Dead franchise. A year later, we saw another epic pairing with Avp: Alien vs. Predator, which also grossed an estimated $80+ million. Then, in 2007, we saw Avpr: Alien vs. Predator: Requiem hit the market. And, of course, who could forget the Oscar contender (sarcasm) that was Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys.
There are plenty of hoops to jump through in order for studios to bring icons from different franchises together to duke it out. »

While it’s true that we still have five more episodes of Season 3 of The Walking Dead to go, the gears of production are beginning to grind for Season 4. AMC is reporting that production begins on May 6 in Atlanta, just over two months from now. They’ve also announced a few promotions within the ranks.
As we told you in December, showrunner Glen Mazzara will not be returning for the next season, but as we told you in January, that position has been filled by writer and supervising producer Scott Gimple. AMC is now confirming that news, along with announcing the news that special effects god Greg Nicotero is rightfully being bumped up from producer to executive producer in the new season.
Here are all the details, including some interesting credits for the very accomplished Mr. Gimple:

This article is full of spoilers for the “Death Of The Family”, don’t read any further unless you are okay with knowing everything about the plot and the ending. I would only suggest this article to people who have read through the story.
A little over a year ago readers of Detective Comics got a little surprise. Since DC was issuing its “New 52″ plan, writers got the chance to start over and create a new and rich story line. That is exactly what happened in Detective Comics #1. The issue revolved around the Joker, as any new Batman series should, and let readers glimpse at how insane he really was.
Due to a long chain of events, and carefully planned ones at that, the writer (Tony Daniel) managed the unthinkable. He surprised us readers. For years upon years I have read Batman comics and have not truly felt any shock »
