Gang Related star Cliff Curtis will lead the upcoming Walking Dead spinoff. Curtis will take on the role of a divorced teacher in the show from co-creator Robert Kirkman and Sons of Anarchy’s Dave Erickson. His character is a teacher named Sean Cabrera who is described as a morally sound individual who strives to do the right thing. The Walking Dead spinoff will chronicle Curtis’ lead character trying to live in a post-apocalyptic world – similar to the current AMC series’ story line. Curtis will be joined by a female guidance counselor and single mother. That role has yet to be cast by the showrunners. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood [ Read More ]

They did it for comics ("The Walking Dead," "The Wold Among Us"), games ("Borderlands") and TV ("Game of Thrones"), now narrative-driven, multi-chapter game developer Telltale Games is teaming with "Minecraft" developers Mojang to develop a new game series combining their signature works.
Entitled "Minecraft: Story Mode," the first chapter of the narrative-driven series is set to debut next year. The project is set in the world of Minecraft, but the series will feature an original story driven by player choice.
It will Not be an add-on for the game, but rather a stand-alone product that will premiere in 2015 on consoles, computers and mobile devices. Like Telltale's previous efforts, it will be released episodically. The game will "mix new characters with familiar themes, in an entirely original Minecraft experience, inspired by the Minecraft community".

Yesterday, Jon Goldwater, CEO of Archie Comics participated in a Reddit Ama. When Goldwater was asked if the ongoing horror series, Afterlife With Archie, will eventually become a television series or movie, he had this response: "As for film and TV - the answer is Yes! Absolutely! This is something that will be happening at some point in the near future - nothing to announce just yet, but rest assured it will happen." - Jon Goldwater This isn't too surprising as you have to imagine studios are scouring comic book properties that deal with zombie apocalypses to try and cash in on the success AMC has been having with The Walking Dead. For those of you that don't know, Afterlife With Archie begins with Sabrina the Teenage Witch bringing Jughead's beloved pet Hot Dog back to life. This has the unintended consequence of sparking a zombie apocalypse in Riverdale. It »
Whatever else it's brought with it, 2014 has been an exemplary year for television. There's so much good stuff around that keeping on top of it has become a job of work. How many of us have started silently dreading hearing enthused recommendations from pals about new series? Who else has developed a nervous tick whenever they hear the words "Have you been watching...". There's simply Too. Much. TV.
Too much, however, is better than not enough. Too much enables debate, and better than that, it enables the ultimate geek pursuit: list-making. A fortnight ago, we asked our writers to nominate their favourite television episodes of the year and have been busily collating their votes and happily clicking Excel buttons ever since.

The makers of Remember Me return with the episodic adventure game Life Is Strange. Here's the first reveal trailer...
Last year's Remember Me had its share of flaws, but there was also much to enjoy in it: a beautifully-designed future Paris, and an engaging Sf premise where a new-fangled device can manipulate and erase memories.
Next year, French developer Dontnod Entertainment will return with Life Is Strange, an episodic third-person adventure game with its own intriguing story. It takes place in a small town in Oregon, where two high school friends, Max and Chloe, are trying to discover the whereabouts of a fellow student who's mysteriously disappeared.
The twist is that Max isn't just any other high school student: she has the ability to rewind time, Braid style. Those who've had a hands-on preview of Life Is Strange have described it as being a bit like Telltale's The Walking Dead series with added time travel, »
2014 has been a landmark year for comic book movies. Not only did we get two of Marvel's best-ever films (Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier), but the major studios announced enough future superhero adaptations to take us all the way up to 2019.
It's been a pretty landmark year for comic books too. It feels as though more genuinely exciting new titles launched in 2014 than in the past ten years combined, with DC, Marvel and especially Image taking big risks and creating some seriously compelling comics in the process.
We've picked out our 14 favourite comics from this year in terms of big-screen potential:
The Comic: On paper, Spread doesn't sound like the most original book on the market. Like The Walking Dead, it's set in a post-apocalyptic world where survivors fight off gruesome monsters and each other. As with The Thing, those monsters are giant shape-shifting »

Over the last few years, many fans of The Walking Dead have packed their bags, hopped in their cars, and headed to the Senoia, Georgia area to experience firsthand the environment where their favorite living dead show is filmed. A trip to The Woodbury Shoppe is a common stop for these road tripping fright fans, and a new addition to The Shoppe, The Waking Dead Café, recently opened its doors.
At The Waking Dead Café, you can nibble on a Daryl Dixon angel wings cookie, get your caffeine kick, or stroll around the custom-made interior that replicates memorable places from the show, including the prison (a tribute that features cell doors) and the treacherous trail to Terminus.
Early this month, a sold-out signing featuring Robert Kirkman took place in the new space. We have an image of The Waking Dead Café below (via TheWalkingDead.com). To learn more, visit:

With rumours arriving that The Walking Dead spin-off may be a prequel, hot on the heels of the news that Syfy is pursuing a series about Superman's grandfather, titled Krypton, there are officially no more jokes. Anything you might say about making a comic book series set some ridiculous amount of time before the real story starts happening, can and will be seriously considered as a pitch by some network, somewhere.
A Newsroom-style series about The Daily Planet before Clark Kent started working there? A psychological procedural featuring Dr. Harleen Quinzel but no Joker? A jungle-set adventure series about Gorilla Grodd's granddad? We could keep going until the phone rings and someone makes us an offer for a pilot, but that would be an unnecessary amount of pre-amble before getting to the point, »

15. Mad Men
Season 7, Part 1 of Mad Men should have been incredibly frustrating. Inspired by Breaking Bad, the show decided to have it final run split into two parts over two years and it originally sounded like an excuse to eke out the Don Draper franchise for another 12 months. We couldn't have been more wrong.

Remember that Walking Dead companion series? Well, apparently it might be a prequel…
It’s been a little while since we had an update on the touted Walking Dead spin-off series. The last we heard was a bit of casting news which introduced us to some family-oriented characters.
Now though, a juicy rumour has come to the fore – that the series, assumed by many to be running concurrently to the main show, might actually be a prequel.
This speculation comes straight from the highly respected Hollywood Reporter, who are seemingly very confident in their source.
They believe that the show will be set in Los Angeles, and will cover the dawn of the zombie apocalypse. This is, of course, uncharted territory for Robert Kirkman’s source material.
‘An early script features one character who briefly appeared during a key season one episode,’ the report also mentioned. Guesses on the back of a postcard, »
In our recent interview with Funko designer Reis O’Brien, he provided us with an exclusive first look at some of The Walking Dead Mystery Minis Series 3 figures, and today Funko unveiled the entire Series 3 lineup that will be available to purchase as blind boxes early next year, including multiple versions of Hershel, Daryl Dixon, Glenn, and Tyreese, as well as Daryl’s motorcycle and several ravenous walkers.
Funko’s The Walking Dead Mystery Minis Series 3 figures will come out in February 2015. Each vinyl figure stands 2.5 inches tall and although the individual item prices have yet to be revealed, Series 2 Mystery Minis sold for $6.95 apiece, so you can expect a similar price this time around.
In addition to the aforementioned names, collectors can look forward to seeing Mystery Mini depictions of Abraham, Carol, Maggie, and Rick Grimes, with a special glow-in-the-dark walker also in the mix. We have a look »

I’ve just managed to polish off the latest episode of the bloody fantastic AMC series The Walking Dead, and am currently sat typing this in anticipation as to what 2015 will bring for the Andrew Lincoln led zombie drama. Well, we know that it’ll have it’s remaining eight episodes of season five air in the first part of 2015 (starting February), and it will get a spin-off sometime in the future too. We’re hearing this evening that the spin-off, which doesn’t currently have a title, will start shooting in early 2015, and will be set… in California.
There’s a ton of interest in other locations of the ‘Walking Dead’ universe that may exist, and it looks like AMC are directing their attention to the vast Metropolis of Los Angeles for their spin-off, which is rumoured to be a prequel set during the early days of the zombie-outbreak. »

A new bit of news dropped today regarding AMC’s planned spin-off for The Walking Dead, currently codenamed “Cobalt.” After rumors that the show was trading the woods of Georgia for a more urban setting, it turns out that the city in question will be none other than Los Angeles. That’s according to TVLine, but it’s unclear if that will be confirmed, or if the show would actually be filmed in La as opposed to a stand-in city. This joins the limited pool of information we know about the show, including a few cast roles like Cliff Curtis as the lead supported by Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam. In terms of actual plot details, we know next to none other than the simple “not die” that pervades any zombie-themed survival show. But the larger question remains. Will The Walking Dead: Cobalt be a hit for AMC? Lord knows the channel needs… »
Maybe it's just a coincidence that many of the most popular shows on Twitter this year feature the kinds of twists and surprise deaths that have viewers Tweeting in mass outrage. Maybe not. For 2014, The Walking Dead was the most-Tweeted TV show (#RIPBeth), followed by the reality show hate-watch The Bachelor and the ever-popular Pretty Little Liars, according to the Nielson Twitter TV Ratings. American Horror Story: Freak Show clocked in at fourth, which is pretty impressive given that the season hasn't even ended yet, and HBO's Game of Thrones came in at fifth. Here's the rest of the list: »
