'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman on why you need to 'stay tuned for season 5'

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched the season finale of The Walking Dead.]

The Walking Dead took its first trip to Cliffhanger City with its season 4 finale, leaving Rick Grimes and most of the group reunited in the worst of all places — locked in a train car by the baddies of Terminus. But there is hope because at least the group has Rick back at his badass best. The finale used a flashback framework to show Rick’s transformation from a leader into a farmer after the fall of Woodbury, at the urging of Scott Wilson’s Hershel. That was juxtaposed against the things Rick had to do now to keep his family and friends safe — things like biting one marauder’s neck off and gutting another. Translation: the old Rick is finally back. And it is the Rick the group will need if they are to survive this encounter with their latest foes. We caught up with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman to get his thoughts on the finale, the evolution of Rick Grimes, and the fact that nobody major died, as well as get some insight into Terminus leader Gareth (that dude in the photo above) and what will happen when things pick back up in season 5.

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman says season finale will 'shock people'

They finally reached Terminus! Or at least some of them did. Glenn, Maggie, Tara, Bob, Sasha, Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita all arrived to a place with flowers blooming, crops growing, and a woman named Mary offering them a plate a food. So what now? Are the other groups (Rick, Carl, and Michonne…Tyreese and Carol…Daryl and the marauders…Beth) far behind? Whatever happens on Sunday’s season 4 Walking Dead finale, creator Robert Kirkman promises it will be intense. And he also says it will all come down to former group leader Rick Grimes.

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman on why Sunday's episode is the one you 'absolutely' have to watch

We’re hitting the home stretch of season 4 for AMC’s The Walking Dead, and according to creator Robert Kirkman, said homestretch is going to be a doozy. That doozydom — yes, I just made that word up — will begin this Sunday night with an episode that Kirkman insists is “definitely one that people are going to remember and it’s definitely one people are going to talk about. If there is one episode of The Walking Dead that you absolutely had to watch this season, it would be this one.”

Translation: Uh-oh. Every time I hear something like that I get very nervous for everyone on screen. I chatted with Kirkman to get his take on the second half of season 4 so far — which has seen our big collection of survivors divided up into smaller groups — and have him look ahead to the pivotal episode on Sunday.

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman gives intel on new characters

It’s sad watching people die on The Walking Dead. But when some characters die off, new ones emerge and take their place. So while we mourn the most recent loss of Hershel, we can at least look forward to the appearance of three familiar faces from the comic book on which the show is based. (Faces like Abraham, as played by Michael Cudlitz — see photo above.) We chatted with Walking Dead exec producer Robert Kirkman to get the scoop on the newbies as well as everything else we need to know heading into the last eight episodes of season 4, which kick off this Sunday on AMC. (Click through both pages to read the entire interview. And also make sure to check out our midseason preview Q&As with Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, and Andrew Lincoln.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I’ve spoken with a lot of the cast recently and everyone has talked about how the final eight episodes are tonally different from the first eight. Can you talk about that a bit and how they may feel a bit different?
ROBERT KIRKMAN: It’s all of our characters scattered to the winds. Everybody’s separated and so we’re actually doing a lot of really intense, character focusing episodes. So because they’re separated there will be episodes that focus on different people. There will be episodes that focus on different groups at a time when they’re in their worst situation yet. We’re really going to really drill down into them and get to know them much more than we’ve gotten to know them before. I think after the end of these eight episodes you’re going to be acutely aware of who these people are and I think they’re going to be some really shocking revelations about what makes people tick and who they really are at their core.

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman on when we might see comic book villain Negan on the show

The-Walking-Dead.jpg

The Governor met his demise in the midseason finale of The Walking Dead through a combination of Michonne’s sword, Lilly’s gun, and his own warped thirst for power and revenge. Once he stopped stumbling around like a homeless hippie and got his evil, power-hungry mojo back, the Governor doomed himself and now we won’t have to look at his sorry face again. (Blame Lilly for that, for had she not shot him in the head, we at least had the possibility of seeing him come back as the first ever eye-patched pirate zombie, which would be only, like, the raddest thing ever. Yes, even radder than the baseball player and Hare Krishna zombies from the original Dawn of the Dead.) READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Creator Robert Kirkman on the killer midseason finale and what's next

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead.]

Destruction, terror and mayhem are not just the lyrics to an awesome LL Cool J song. They also properly describe what went down on last night’s midseason finale of The Walking Dead. In his thirst for revenge, the Governor took Hershel and Michonne hostage, and then sliced off Hershel’s head when Rick refused to have his people leave the safety behind the fence. The Governor then stormed the prison with his tank before being killed himself through a combination of Rick’s fists, Michonne’s sword, and Lilly’s gun. Now, the prison survivors are scattered and we will have to wait until the show returns on Feb. 9, 2014 for answers. Or will we? We chatted with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman to get his thoughts on what went down, why it went down, and what to expect next. Read on for all the intel! (Also check out our interview with Scott Wilson, who played the dearly departed Hershel.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Okay, you bastard. How could you do that to poor Hershel?
ROBERT KIRKMAN: He was the moral compass of the group and it’s always good to lose the moral compass. It will all become clear when we finally show you the back half of season 4. It wasn’t enough for these characters to lose the prison. They also had to feel some kind of loss over something important and Hershel was that thing that was important to each and every character, so it made the most sense to take him off the table and see how it affects the characters, which we’ll see when we come back in a bit. So there’s a lot of cool stuff ahead because of that. READ FULL STORY

'Walking Dead' exec producer Robert Kirkman talks about new cast member Michael Cudlitz

The big news out of the The Walking Dead panel at this weekend’s New York Comic-Con was the announcement of three new cast members: Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, and Southland actor Michael Cudlitz, who will play Sgt. Abraham Ford. The latter character is a favorite among fans of the Walking Dead comic, which is written by Robert Kirkman, one of the TV show’s executive producers. So why did he and his fellow zombie overlords think Cudlitz was right for the role of the hyper-capable military man?

'Walking Dead' executive producer Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's season premiere

Watching the season 4 premiere of The Walking Dead, it was easy to imagine you had fallen into a Rick Grimes-esque coma and missed a few shows. When did Andrew Lincoln’s much-tortured cop become so handy with a hoe? When was David Morrissey‘s depth perception-challenged maniac The Governor going to make an appearance? And, perhaps most bewilderingly, when did it become okay for Carol to call Daryl “Pookie”?

With just four more episodes of season 3 of The Walking Dead to go, this would officially qualify as the homestretch. So what should we expect to see as we head toward the inevitable confrontation between Rick and The Governor? Is Rick sane again? Has Michonne proved her mettle? And should we assume that not everyone will make it out of the season alive? We spoke with exec producer Robert Kirkman, who offered up some cryptic clues and teases for what lies ahead. (Click through both pages to read the complete Q&A.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Is Rick past his hallucinations now? Did that encounter with Morgan refocus him? Where’s his head at as we get closer to the big showdown?
ROBERT KIRKMAN: He has started to get a handle on it to a certain extent and a big thing that helped him with that was his interaction with Morgan in this last episode. He sees this fun house there, who he could eventually be if he keeps going down this path. I think that’s going to help rein him in a great deal and set him on the path to healing. Now, he could have a relapse, but I think right now he is getting a handle on what is going on within him. READ FULL STORY
