Following the first clip from the Season 5 Premiere of The Walking Dead, Entertainment Weekly has debuted five new magazine covers featuring the show's stars Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), Norman Reedus (Darryl Dixon), Steven Yeun (Glenn Rhee), Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene), and Danai Gurira (Michonne). Take a look at these new photos that show the stars springing into action, then read on for more details about Season 5, which debuts Sunday, October 12 on AMC.
Andrew Lincoln reveals that, while younger kids have watched the show with their families in the past, he doesn't advise the young ones watch this year.
"We're really earning our rating this season. There are families that watch it together, but just so it's on the record, guys-it's a grown-up show this season."
Season 4 culminated with Rick and his group finally reuniting as they find the Terminus refuge, only to have this group of cannibals trap them in a railroad car. »
Mad Men will wrap up its seven-season run next year on AMC, and it's the only veteran drama on the network that is yet to announce a follow-up spinoff series.
With both Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead spawning new shows, Digital Spy took the chance to ask Hamm what spinoff he'd like to see for Don Draper & co, while speaking to him about new baseball drama Million Dollar Arm.
Watch the video above to hear Hamm's - and our - spinoff ideas, and to listen to Hamm discuss his favourite episode of Mad Men to date.
"It was bittersweet," Hamm said of the final day on set. "It was a long day, we had a lot of people wrapping up their days on the final one and I was the last one to shoot.
"It was hard, and it remains hard, to say goodbye to the character."

I’m probably the only fan of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” who thought the Season 4 finale was kinda, well, predictable, with the final few minutes, when they’re running around the joint being herded by the bad guys, kind of lame. I mean, the special effects during that sequence. Wow. The bullet squibs? I thought it was a joke at first, but nope, I’m supposed to take that seriously. I think my 10-year-old nephew could have done better on his Mac Quadra. (Now that’s old school computing, kids!) Anyways, Season 5 is on the way this October and will no doubt be another massive hit as we see how Rick and company manage to escape their current predicament. In preparation, EW has put out four snazzy covers featuring the boys and girls as they struggle to survive in their hellish new environment. Apparently they’ll achieve this by »
The Walking Dead's Daryl Dixon may or may not be gay. What we know is this: The Walking Dead won't declare one way or another anytime soon. In an interview with TVLine, executive producer and showrunner Scott Gimple said Daryl's (played by Norman Reedus) sexual orientation "is not really addressed" in season five of the hit AMC drama. However, The Walking Dead does plan on introducing a gay male character, Gimple said. Speculation about Daryl's sexual leanings first took off in early August when comic book creator Robert Kirkman was asked about it and said, "All I can say is that it's been discussed." Kirkman added, "We have very specific ideas about Daryl's sexuality (or »

One story that drew a bit of attention the other week was a quote from "The Walking Dead" comic creator Robert Kirkman. Talking about AMC's TV series adaptation of his work on which he's a producer, Kirkman let slip that fan favorite and very reserved character Daryl Dixon (who isn't in the comics) might turn out to be gay.
This week, showrunner Scott M. Gimple spoke with TV Line about the new season and was immediately asked by the outlet about the quotes from Kirkman. Gimple confirms that Daryl's sexuality won't be addressed this year, but he's glad the speculation and interest exists:
"We know all sorts of things about the characters that we haven't revealed. [But] we're not holding back information on Daryl's sexuality as any sort of big reveal. The fact that there's still a question as to what Daryl's orientation is in Season 5 absolutely speaks to Daryl's character; he is a very guarded, »

The Executive Producer also steps in to direct the show on occasion, including several pivotal episodes from last season – including the Season 4 opener, "30 Days Without an Accident."
Season 4 just dropped on DVD and limited edition Blu-Ray (with a spooky tree walker case), and to promote the release, Greg took time away from working on Season 5 (and texting "Simpsons" quotes to showrunner Scott Gimple) to share stories from behind the scenes with AccessHollywood.com.
