You've heard of snakes on a plane—thank you, Samuel L. Jackson—and now thanks to AMC there will be zombies on a plane. According to Entertainment Weekly, AMC is planning a special based in the world of The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead that will see a zombie outbreak on a plane.Flying has never been more fun! The new web special is set during Fear The Walking Dead, which is set before the events of The Walking Dead, but all are in the same universe. In the stand-alone story, the airplane passengers face a walker/zombie/whatever you want to call it while midair. A character survives the encounter and will join the cast of Fear The Walking Dead season two. This is the first time AMC is using a »

The zombie universe continues to expand on AMC. After premiering Fear the Walking Dead to record-setting ratings, the network is planning a stand-alone episode of a zombie attack that takes place on a passenger plane, EW reports. As their prize, the lucky survivor of that episode will get to join the cast of Fear the Walking Dead on the second season. The stand-alone episode will debut online and unfold in small bits that will air on television during commercial breaks of The Walking Dead. It sounds similar to how the Razor movie functioned in the Battlestar Galactica universe — as an interesting stand-alone narrative that included some of the same characters but wasn't required viewing. In any case, we can help brainstorm titles for the new show. We are partial to The Flying Dead, Air Force Zom, Brains on a Plane, and Zombie Airplane! »

AMC may not be planning a crossover of The Walking Dead with its freshman companion series during their ongoing series, but a new half-hour special will do just that. The cabler has ordered a half-hour special set to feature an outbreak on an airline. The stand-alone effort will unspool online in chapters that will air later during The Walking Dead, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. As first reported by EW, the web series will take place during the time period of Fear the Walking Dead — at the origins of the outbreak — and feature an outbreak on a passenger craft

The special is a stand-alone piece set to feature an outbreak on an airline during the early origins of the disease. A survivor of the attack will then join the cast of 'Fear' in the show's fifteen episode second season.
This special will be released online in chapters that will air later during "The Walking Dead". It's unclear how many installments there will be or during which episodes of the main show they will begin airing.

After just one episode, Fear the Walking Dead is not only becoming a ratings monster in the United States but a full-on global phenomenon. The spin-off AMC’s insanely popular The Walking Dead premiered to 10.1 million viewers in the U.S. on Sunday, becoming the number one series premiere in cable history. In addition to that, it’s now being reported that the newly launched AMC Global was a top 10 network on Sunday in key regional markets across Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Fear the Walking Dead made its debut worldwide on Sunday, simultaneously airing at 9 p.m. Et/Pt, with repeats also airing in local time zones around the world during primetime. The new series quadrupled AMC’s primetime audience in key Latin America markets; helped the network rank eleventh among all entertainment networks in Brazil, a country in which AMC only has 30% distribution; and »

Having solidly taken the top cable debut spot with its first round of ratings, it's no surprise that Fear The Walking Dead has now ripped apart the previous Live+3 records. With DVR numbers now in, the August 23 premiere of The Walking Dead spinoff had 13.3 million total viewers and 8.5 million adults 18-49. That jumps it ahead of AMC's other recent successful and previous record holding spinoff Better Call Saul in the key categories and seals FearTWD as the summer’s top… »
Never mind "Snakes on a Plane" or even the zombies on a plane in "World War Z." According to Entertainment Weekly, AMC is producing a half-hour standalone special following a group of passengers attacked by zombies/walkers on an airplane during flight. This is tied to the world of "The Walking Dead" in that one character who survives the ordeal with then join the cast of "Fear the Walking Dead" in Season 2, which arrives in 2016. So it's not just "Zombies on a Plane," it's "Survivor: Zombie Apocalypse." And we're here for it!
The way this story plays out will be unorthodox, in that it's a mix of webisode and TV teaser. As EW explained:
The airline attack story will debut online, and will unfold this in chapters that will air during Walking Dead's on-air telecasts. In other words: You're watching The Walking Dead, AMC cuts to commercial break, then »

The Walking Dead Season 6 is creeping ever-closer, and as its new spin-off show kicks into gear, this is the time for speculation to kick up a notch. It’s been almost half a year since we left a blood-splattered Rick following his ruthless execution of the murderous Pete.
There was surprisingly few deaths in the Season 5 finale, with Pete’s victim Reg the only other casualty, and this has led fans to believe there’s a cull on the way. It’s easy to discuss characters dying, with feasible explanations for every future exit, but what about the actual meat of the story?
What do fans want to see Season 6 pivot around? Showrunner Scott Gimple teased that things are going to get bigger, louder and scarier, and we like the sound of that very much. He also detailed that the show ‘re-invents’ itself every 8 episodes with a fresh angle, »

It may be the dog days of summer, but AMC was barking loudly last week with the record-setting premiere of “Fear the Walking Dead.”
The prequel to “The Walking Dead” became the top-rated cable premiere of all time in both adults 18-49 (4.9 rating) and total viewers (10.31 million), according to Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates — topping the scores for every episode from the first two seasons of the original zombie series, which bowed in 2010.
In the demo, Sunday’s premiere rating breaks the previous cable high set in February by AMC’s debut of “Better Call Saul” (3.5 rating, airing behind “Walking Dead”). And in total viewers, “Fear the Walking Dead” leap-frogs the 2008 premiere of TNT’s “Raising the Bar,” which drew 7.7 million viewers.
“Fear” even fares well relative to the top broadcast premieres of late. The 4.9 rating is more than 1 point above this past season’s top hourlong premieres (“How »

Welcome to the penultimate installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the twelfth episode, “Isabella," coming up just as soon as I buy you some sweat socks at The Sports Authority... "To tell you the truth, I feel pretty good." -Tony I'll be honest: even though I'd never specifically recapped these early "Sopranos" seasons, I've written so much about the show over the years, »

The Walking Dead comic books were a big deal long before Rick Grimes & Co. came to life on our screens. Robert Kirkman’s creations first came to life in 2003, with 145 issues to date, though there are still plenty more to come.
When you hear rumours about a potential 12 seasons of The Walking Dead TV show, don’t be too surprised. There’s an incredible wealth of source material that can be shaped for television, it just depends on whether they can maintain the audience long enough to broadcast it all.
The comic books are a long way ahead of the show, though there are some big, surprising changes, with characters dead or non-existent in the comics and vice versa. Some characters have even taken others’ places in death scenes, and methods have been swapped around.
Now let’s take a look at some of the biggest deaths »
