Walking Dead fans have likely heard some of the development struggles it took getting AMC’s horror powerhouse off the ground, including an NBC that didn’t want zombies, but it seems the series very nearly looked quite different. Original showrunner Frank Darabont actually wanted ex-Punisher Thomas Jane for the role of Rick Grimes, before Andrew Lincoln came along.

There’s no arguing that The Walking Dead owes us a death or two when Season 6 returns for its latter half, but one wonders who, if any from the main cast will suffer an ignominious end. The comics point one way, but might a noticeable haircut for one series star spell an ominous fate ahead?
In case you haven’t noticed, AMC remains short on original programming that garner as much attention as The Walking Dead. And while shows like Turn, Halt & Catch Fire and Hell on Wheels have held their own against diminished ratings, a success story like Into the Badlands isn’t about to be thrown away. The future-flung martial arts drama will officially return for Season 2, according to star Daniel Wu.
The dust has barely settled on The Walking Dead Season 6's midpoint, its future looking darker than ever, so how about some sun? Companion series Fear The Walking Dead has begun production on Season 2, which may move the setting to good ol’ sunny, dusty Baja, Mexico.
The Walking Dead has officially signed off 2015 by Sunday’s most recent midseason finale “Start to Finish,” but if you’re anything like us, the first half of Season 6 produced some strong reactions. Now, showrunner Scott Gimple defends the show’s credibility after the big Glenn fakeout, as well as its introduction of Negan, and what to expect in the 2016 return.
The Walking Dead may have signed off for 2015 after Sunday’s disappointing “Start to Finish” finale, but the future may yet redeem our midseason break. Forget February, our first look at The Walking Dead’s 2016 premiere has arrived, including the first tease of our new big bad, Negan!
Tonight’s ‘The Walking Dead’ finale delivered a major death and finally named our new villain, but did “Start to Finish” completely underwhelm with its Alexandria invasion? And who made the dumbest move this week? Find out in our full review!
TV resurrections certainly hit a boiling point over the last few days, between last night’s dumpster-diving Walking Dead, or this morning’s surprise Game of Thrones revelation, a proximity not lost on the former’s creative minds. The Walking Dead took a playful shot at Game of Thrones for torturing fans, but is the pot calling the kettle (or perhaps just taking the) black?
Well, the cat’s officially out of the bag now. After a month or so of intense fan speculation, The Walking Dead finally revealed the truth of Glenn’s fate on Sunday’s penultimate 2015 installment “Heads Up,” to the surprise, delight and derision of many. To wit, showrunner Scott Gimple and Steven Yeun himself dropped by Talking Dead via video feed, hoping to address the fervor surrounding one of Season 6’s most controversial twists.
Tonight’s ‘The Walking Dead’ finally answered the burning question on every Glenn fan’s mind this season, but did “Heads Up” completely screw the zombie pooch? And will next week bring all-out chaos to Alexandria? Find out in our full review!
