‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6 Blu-ray Somehow Made the Finale Even Longer

Apart from its climactic end, The Walking Dead Season 6 finale used a great majority of its 90-minute runtime to shuttle Rick’s crew back and forth between Savior traps; not exactly the riveting material you’d expect an extended cut for. Yet here we are, as the full list of Walking Dead Season 6 Blu-ray features lists not only an extended cut, but also in-depth looks at Negan and some of the season’s biggest moments.

‘The Walking Dead’ Had EVERY Cast Member Shoot Negan Death Scenes

It’s no secret that The Walking Dead had its work cut out to keep its big Season 6 death under wraps, awkwardly positioning the cliffhanger as something spoiler-hounds could easily sniff out in Season 7 production. We’d heard of at least some precautions taken to keep the victim a secret, but it seems The Walking Dead is sparing no expense, shooting death scenes for every single character involved.

Long before The Walking Dead confirmed Negan to arrive with the Season 6 finale, fans touted suggestion after suggestion of actors perfectly suited to the bombastic role. Chief among them, perhaps, was music icon Henry Rollins, on whom Negan’s comic likeness was actually based, who now admits he’d actually auditioned for the role that Jeffrey Dean Morgan ultimately claimed.

Is This How ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 Is Keeping Negan’s Victim Under Wraps?

Apart from the obvious, one of the bigger questions raised by The Walking Dead Season 6 finale’s mystery killing lay in how Season 7 filming would keep said identity under wraps, given the rabid on-set spying that already gave away several Season 6 twists. A new comment from executive producer Greg Nicotero might offer a window into that added security, but how fool-proof is it?

That Weird Cell Phone App Says Netflix ‘Fuller House’ Ratings on Par With ‘Walking Dead’

In spite of their monstrous and ever-increasing success, Netflix has yet to publicly reveal any real viewing data, something San Francisco-based Symphony sought to rectify with a strange cell phone app analyzing viewership data by audio. Netflix flatly denied the accuracy of said “ratings,” but may not want to, if word of Fuller House having upwards of 10 million viewers proves true.

A little friendly rivalry between TV juggernauts never hurt, and we’ve certainly seen The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones tossing a bit of healthy shade back and forth. Dead creator Robert Kirkman may have escalated the conflict, however, expressing his disappointment in Thrones author George R.R. Margin giving up book spoilers, for which the zombie mogul now offers a clever mea culpa.

Report: Here’s How ‘The Walking Dead’ Will Bring THAT Fierce Character to Life

Season 7 of The Walking Dead has some pretty immediate questions to answer for fans, but will otherwise introduce brave new worlds and characters to explore after the bat. We know at least one major character (and his iconic pet) to pop up, but how might The Walking Dead realize such a complicated, outlandish figure?

Apart from an army of undead and a few fake-out deaths, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones have little in common beyond vast source material fans are eager to see adapted. That said, Game of Thrones ran out of road early enough that author George R.R. Martin gifted a few unpublished spoilers to HBO, something Dead creator Robert Kirkman says he would never do for AMC.

AMC companion series Fear The Walking Dead has struggled to turn the same heads as its mothership, even as Season 2 now unfurls with the same midseason cliffhanger that The Walking Dead has trafficked in for years. To wit, showrunner Dave Erickson acknowledges fan disappointment with the spinoff, as well where it stands with the main series’ significantly-advanced timeline.

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.
