The Walking Dead companion series is no longer nameless, as it its official title was revealed on Twitter by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman today. And while the companion series’ title is not all that different from the original show’s, it certainly make its intentions known: it wants you to be afraid, which is why the new AMC series will be called Fear The Walking Dead. Fear The Walking Dead, which was given a two-season order from AMC earlier month, will take places in Los Angeles and serve as a prequel to the original Walking Dead series. The show stars Cliff Curtis (Gang Related), Kim Dickens (Deadwood), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam-Carey (Lexa from The CW’s The 100). “We feel empowered by this two-season commitment, a serious show of faith from our network partner AMC,” Kirkman said when the companion series was ordered. »

The Walking Dead spinoff series has an official title, and it’s probably not one people were expecting. While the all-important brand recognition led many to think the series would have a sort of subtitle, like The Walking Dead: Biters, it appears that AMC and executive producer Robert Kirkman have settled on something a little more straightforward: Fear the Walking Dead. It's Official! The walking dead companion show on AMC is called Fear The Walking Dead! Expect more news very soon! #FearTheWalkingDead — Robert Kirkman (@RobertKirkman) March 27, 2015 So…yeah. That’s a title, I guess. Honestly it feels akin to Star Trek Into Darkness, but it’s not like Fear the Walking Dead even gives people an idea as to what the show is about. Yes, zombies are scary. So are the metaphorical “walking dead.” This title does nothing to set this show apart from the original series, which is maybe the point. »

Well, at least we can stop referring to AMC's "Walking Dead" companion series as AMC's Untitled "Walking Dead" Companion Series. Series co-creator Robert Kirkman took to Twitter on Friday to reveal the official title. It's Official! The walking dead companion show on AMC is called Fear The Walking Dead! Expect more news very soon! #FearTheWalkingDead — Robert Kirkman (@RobertKirkman) March 27, 2015 So... "Fear the Walking Dead." This continues AMC's somewhat odd trend of making imperative clauses into show titles. "Fear the Walking Dead" joins "Halt and Catch Fire," "Turn" and "Better Call Saul" among the AMC titles that could also just serve as helpful advice in certain circumstances. AMC announced two weeks ago that "Fear the Walking Dead" has been given a two-season order, with an initial six-episode run premiering this summer, followed by a 2016 launch for season two. Good title? »

It’s getting real on “The Walking Dead.” There are so many questions left to be answered and only one 90-minute episode to go before the season ends.
Why did Michonne (Danai Gurira) coldcock Rick (Andrew Lincoln) mid-rant in front of their friends and half the town of Alexandria? Will Alexandria leader Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh) decide to exile Rick’s entire crew after Rick’s rant and that ominous warning she received from Gabriel (Seth Gilliam)? Isn’t Maggie (Lauren Cohan) going to tell anyone what Gabriel said? Will Carol (Melissa McBride) kill Jessie’s (Alexandra Breckenridge) abusive husband Pete (Corey Brill) herself, after Rick simply beat him senseless? What happens to Glenn (Steven Yeun) after witnessing the death of Noah (Tyler James Williams)? Just who — or what — are Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Aaron (Ross Marquand) tracking? And where the hell is Morgan (Lennie James)?
Yes, there’s a lot »

According to a local real estate website, Curbed Atlanta, The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus may be selling his Atlanta-area home, and it’s making some fans worried about the fate of Reedus’s beloved character, Daryl Dixon, on the hit AMC series. The fact that Reedus appears to be moving from the Atlanta area, along with reports that he’ll be The Walking Dead cast member featured on Sunday’s Talking Dead, has many people wondering if Daryl will be the latest character to die in the show’s Season 5 finale. However, one rumor, also discussed in the Curbed Atlanta article, disputes that theory, as it is believed that Reedus is selling his current home to move somewhere more remote, a place that he can have a bit more privacy, but one that’s still in the general area around Atlanta. Another piece of information that supports this idea »

Zeb Larson reviews The Walking Dead #139…
From The Edge Of The World. A new arc begins as our world gets even bigger.
We finally get to see some characters we haven’t seen in a very long time, and their return is a good thing for this book. The reunion unfortunately dominates this issue to the exclusion of Maggie and Carl’s plotlines, but those will presumably receive more attention in subsequent issues. This new storyline is off to a good start. I will be discussing spoilers ahead, so read on at your own discretion.
Rick heads to Ezekiel’s former kingdom, where the two of them are waiting for their makeshift fishing navy to return. The two discuss future plans and fortifications for Alexandria before the ship arrives, where we discover that the captain of this boat is Michonne. She’d run away from Ezekiel a while before, and »

The Walking Dead Season 5 comes to it's explosive conclusion this Sunday, March 29, as Rick faces being thrown out of Alexandria. While it's sure to bring exciting thrills and scares in its extended 90-minute running time, that might not be the most exciting part of your upcoming Sunday evening. After this game-changing episode brings everything to a close, the first Fear the Walking Dead trailer will air during Talking Dead, immediately following the episode titled Conquer.
AMC has already announced that it has picked up two seasons of The Walking Dead companion series Fear the Walking Dead. The first look will air shortly after 10:30pm Est, so you better be sure to set your DVRs for Talking Dead if you're one of the few who skip this talk show.

Things looked grim in Alexandria when we last left "The Walking Dead," as Rick put on a maniacal show while he beat Pete senseless, then waved a gun around while ranting about the community's need to change its ways. That display has certainly cast the constable in a new light for the Alexandrians, and will no doubt affect how the rest of his group sees him, too.
But how much will that divide play into the ensemble's dynamic going forward? And what does it mean for Rick personally? We have a lot of questions about the show as it heads into its 90-minute season finale on Sunday, and we've laid them out below. Here's (some of) what we hope to see addressed as the show ends its fifth season.
1. How will Rick's group react to his outburst?
