Heading into its seventh season, The Walking Dead is already at an age when most series would look to start wrapping things up, though its status as AMC’s flagship hit with miles of Robert Kirkman story ahead would make that unlikely. It’s a question sure to plague the AMC series more and more in the coming years, but according to Andrew Lincoln and Scott Gimple, one idea sees Robert Kirkman ending both his long-running comic and the TV Walking Dead simultaneously.
Altruism aside, NBC’s Red Nose Day always manages to put together some impressive parodies, as we saw last year with the Game of Thrones cast getting together for an album. This year, The Walking Dead takes it to some bizarre heights, as Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus imagine a Walking Dead add-on in the style of the Star Wars Holiday Special.
Sunday’s antepenultimate Walking Dead Season 6 installment wrought plenty of heartbreak, but the first look at next week’s “East” could almost make up for it. Richonne fans, prepare for heart palpitations in the first sneak peek of next week’s Walking Dead.
‘The Walking Dead’ acrobatically leaps through its next 2016 hour with the introduction of a fan-favorite comic character, and a long-awaited hookup, but is “The Next World” as fun as last week promised? Find out in our full review of tonight’s Rick and Daryl road show!
Sunday’s Walking Dead premiere left quite a bit to live up to in the remaining seven hours of Season 6, and Rick and Daryl are already venturing out to fill the void. The badass Walking duo leaves Alexandria in search of corn, as The Walking Dead releases its first previews of “The Next World.”
‘The Walking Dead’ returns for 2016 with an astonishingly stylish and tense hour, but is there “No Way Out” of the series’ latest brutal casualty? Find out in our full review of tonight’s gorgeous, eye-popping return!
The Walking Dead will return in under a week’s time, picking up with one of the biggest cliffhangers in the series’ history, and answering the question of whether or not Alexandria is here to stay. That said, Andrew Lincoln teases a huge change for the back half of Season 6, while a new leaked photo may confirm some deadly consequences ahead.
It seemed pretty apparent at the end of The Walking Dead 2015 closer “Start to Finish” that the whiny little Sam would bring walker carnage down on all her heroes, and 2016 premiere “No Way Out” isn’t backing down from that, by the first premiere synopsis. Plus - who’s “gonna need a bigger beard”?
However much the first half of The Walking Dead Season 6 spent jumping around time and perspective, few would argue that our beloved Daryl got the short end of the stick, leading only a solitary episode, and losing his iconic motorcycle and crossbow in the process. Our long national nightmare has ended, however, as the back eight will feature much more Norman Reedus, even “a little Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” action with Rick.
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.
