So this is what you get for trusting people. Rick Grimes and Co. heard a radio signal and saw painted sings promising peace and sanctuary at a place called Terminus. But all that awaited them there were a group of possible cannibals who funneled them into a box car. Man, people suck. First the Governor and now this?!? But to hear Andrew Lincoln tell it, that is what’s to be expected — and feared — in this new post-apocalyptic environment when season 5 of The Walking Dead kicks off on Oct. 12. We chatted with the star about what’s coming up — including the most violent season yet and a return back to downtown Atlanta — as well as his thoughts on how long he might like to remain on the show…assuming he is not killed off prematurely at some point, which is a terrible assumption to make when it comes to The Walking Dead.

Tag: Andrew Lincoln (1-10 of 15)
No doubt about it: Rick Grimes has been in some hairy situations on The Walking Dead. And none have been hairier than that thing currently growing on his face. Some manly stubble has given way to a full-on assault of whiskers. Which I suppose is appropriate, this being the zombie apocalypse and all. After all, one has to assume the Gillette factory to be something less than fully operational these days. READ FULL STORY
The premiere of The Walking Dead‘s fifth season is still over a month away, but fans are already wondering: Just how dangerous will it be for our four favorite survivors?
EW spoke with some of the show’s stars to coincide with The Walking Dead cover shoot to discuss some of season four’s biggest moments and what’s in store when season 5 premieres on Oct. 12.
The Walking Dead has shown us some of the most disturbing imagery on television the past four years. But if star Andrew Lincoln is to be believed, we haven’t seen anything yet. And a lot of that is due to the fact that the man Lincoln plays, Rick Grimes, is pretty much done messing around. READ FULL STORY
Shane. Dale. Lori. Merle. Andrea… Need we go on? No character on The Walking Dead is ever safe. That much has been proven. But how would the still-living cast members like to see their characters go if and when their time comes? Well, there’s only one way to find out. Ask them. So I did. Here’s how many of The Walking Dead actors see their final moments on the show.
[NOTE & SPOILER ALERT: Some of these characters have already died in the comic book on which the show is based. A few of the actors may reference that, so if you do not want any clues as to who has died in the comic, then stop reading right now. But also keep in mind that the TV version often changes things dramatically. For instance, Hershel’s beheading at the prison actually happened to a different character in the comic that is still alive and well on the TV show. So things don’t always match up.] Okay, spoiler alert over. Now, let’s find out how the cast would like their various demises to go down. Also note that Norman Reedus kind of cheats on his answer. CHEATER! READ FULL STORY
The Walking Dead cast is like one big happy family. But that doesn’t mean these folks are above having some fun at each other’s expense. Just take our Entertainment Weekly Walking Dead cover shoot, for example. During a hot summer day on the Terminus set — where the shoot took place — we asked the actors to tell us something about Andrew Lincoln that he doesn’t want anyone to know. We weren’t sure if they would answer that. After all, Andrew Lincoln is a swell guy! Everyone loves Andrew Lincoln! Would they really betray his trust like that? It turns out they were all too happy to comply.
Check out Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Steven Yeun, and Danai Gurira totally selling their costar out. Is what they say true, or just all made up in an effort to further embarrass the man who plays Rick Grimes? Watch the video below and judge for yourself.

Lest you fret that everyone’s favorite post-apocalyptic zombie drama was going to mellow with age in its fifth season, Andrew Lincoln has some news for you. When discussing The Walking Dead’s penchant for killing off characters during a visit to Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) at Comic-Con, Lincoln told us “It is an inevitable part of this show. It’s one of the great things, I think, that you have real jeopardy for favorite characters. It won’t be without its share of death this season.” Uh-oh, sounds like some necks may be on the line in season 5…which is not to imply that Rick Grimes is set to continue his gnarly throat-chomping binge (R.I.P., Claimers.)
Lincoln was joined by his castmates Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney and Chad Coleman, along with executive producer Gale Anne Hurd as the group infiltrated the EW Radio studio to discus their latest conquest of Comic-Con, and you can hear the entire conversation right here and right now by clicking on the audio player icon below. (The rest of the cast — Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Michael Cudlitz, as well as producers Scott M. Gimple and Denise Huth — stopped by as well, and you can listen to that visit right here.) READ FULL STORY
Last week we brought you an exclusive image from season 5 of The Walking Dead that likely sent shivers up the spines of Daryl Dixon fans, as the resident badass appeared gagged and bound. Now we have some more exclusive episodic images to tide you over.
In the first, we see Melissa McBride’s Carol holding an adorable baby Judith. Sooooo…good news, they’re still alive! When the season starts, that is. After that, who knows? But at least Carol is not telling Judith to “look at the flowers,” because we all know how that ends. Also, Judith does not appear to be a zombie. So that’s a positive…although she does appear to be rocking something of a devilock hairstyle. (Click on the Full Size magnifying glass tab to see a bigger high-res version of the photo.)
But wait, we’re not done. Now, let’s move onto page 2 for a look at what Rick Grimes is up to.
Norman Reedus recently shared what he knew about season 5 of The Walking Dead — which was somewhere between “not much” and “I’m not telling.” But filming has since commenced on season 5 and we have our first official look. That’s the good news. Now here is the bad — it doesn’t show much. READ FULL STORY
[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched the season finale of The Walking Dead.]
RICK GRIMES IS BACK!!! There will be no more of this put down the gun and pick up the garden hoe nonsense. The transformation of Rick back into a fearless leader was complete right around the time in last night’s season 4 Walking Dead finale when he bit marauder Joe in the neck and then gutted his buddy who was set to do harm to Carl. The survivors will need that newly focused badass considering their current predicament as the season ended with most of the group locked up in a train car by the baddies of Terminus. We spoke with Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln to get his thoughts on the evolution of Rick Grimes this season, filming those flashback scenes with Scott Wilson’s Hershel, that crazy cliffhanger ending, and why he can’t wait to get the battle started in season 5. (Also make sure to read our finale interviews with showrunner Scott M. Gimple and creator Robert Kirkman.)
The penultimate episode of The Walking Dead’s fourth season is almost upon us! But you don’t have to wait until Sunday night to get your fix. We have a few exclusive images from the episode for you right here. (Click through all three pages to see them all!) First up is Rick Grimes rocking his new iconic look from the comics with the white shirt and fur-lined jacked. Looks like Rick is also rocking a growing beard and a heavy piece of artillery as well. But who — or what— is he looking at? Terminus, perhaps? (Click here for the full uncropped version of the photo.)
