'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.

'Orphan Black': Meet the new clone! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

A brand new season of Orphan Black means a brand new clone. And we have all the intel on said clone right here! Meet Jennifer Fitzsimmons, a 28-year old teacher and swim coach. And you are about to meet Jennifer the same way Cosima does, through a series of video diaries that Cosima discovers while researching her own respiratory illness.

According to co-creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, Cosima may not like what she finds. “Jennifer is a bright-eyed Midwestern pure of heart girl,” says Manson. But, as Fawcett explains, “Jennifer is a clone who was naïve, she didn’t know she was a clone, and was being monitored by her boyfriend. She gets sick, and with a kind of the version of the illness that Katja had. And of course, a version of the illness that Cosima has. Just that discovery alone is the kind of discovery that shakes Cosima. It really rattles her.”

InsideTV Podcast: Robert Rodriguez drops intel on new 'From Dusk Till Dawn' TV series

A lot of movie directors have been dabbling in television lately. But how many start their own freakin’ TV network? That would be one. And that one would be Robert Rodriguez. The director and now founder of the El Rey network stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this week to talk all about his new “video mix tape” and the super-cool programming they have in store. Of course, at the top of this super-cool list is a new TV version of his 1996 cult classic From Dusk Till Dawn (starring George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino, with a screenplay by Tarantino).

So how similar or different will the TV series be? “The film, you only have a limited time to tell a story, and any character that Quentin creates, they can live and breathe for so much more than that,” says Rodriguez. “And so I decided to take the idea of the movie, retell it in a way, add new characters and have different things happen to characters you know and love, and really set up the story to sustain itself for several seasons. We get a lot more into the mythology of the temple where they go, and build up that mythology. You see some sign posts to what the movie had offered story-wise, but it goes in completely different directions.” READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Check out an exclusive sneak peek at season 2

The war between Sarah and Rachel will be heating up when BBC America’s Orphan Black returns with its season 2 premiere on April 19. We showed you the exclusive first look at that war a few months back, and now Entertainment Weekly’s Instagram account has an exclusive video sneak peek of the scene in question, as Sarah confronts Rachel — courtesy of a slap across the cheek and a gun pointed at the face. And judging by that logo on a monitor in the background, in looks like said confrontation is taking place at none other than the Dyad Institute itself. Clone-on-clone action, people! READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Steven Yeun on what's next for 'resilient' Glenn

Good news, Glenn Rhee! You have survived the killer virus that was spreading throughout the prison! Congratulations! Oh, but just one little thing: your girlfriend’s dad was just beheaded and a giant tank escorted by a one-eyed lunatic and flesh-eating zombies pretty much destroyed your home. Oh yeah, and one other thing: WHERE ARE YOU?!?

When we last saw Glenn, he was waiting on a bus to evacuate the prison, but where is he now as the action picks back up again this Sunday with The Walking Dead‘s midseason premiere? Judging by the photo above, it doesn’t look good. We made like a pack of zombies ourselves and cornered the man who plays Glenn, Steven Yeun, and forced him to share some intel as to what we can expect in the back half of season 4. So share he did. (Also make sure to check out our ‘Walking Dead’ preview interviews with Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Lauren Cohan, and producers Scott Gimple and Robert Kirkman.) READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Lauren Cohan on the 'goriest' episodes yet

So, you just watched your father have his head cut off. Your boyfriend recently was about one more cough away from death himself, and who knows where the hell he is now. Your home has been totaled by a tank and a herd of flesh-eating zombies. And now — somehow, someway — you have to keep yourself alive. That’s where things stand for Maggie Greene when The Walking Dead returns Sunday night for the last eight episodes of season 4. We spoke with Lauren Cohan (who also will be guest-starring soon on Archer) to get some insight into what’s going on in Maggie’s head as the action picks back up. The actress tells us what’s in store while also recounting the emotional goodbye to her on-screen father. (Also make sure to check out our ‘Walking Dead’ preview interviews with Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, and producers Scott Gimple and Robert Kirkman.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, Lauren, we pick things up here as the prison is falling and everyone is seeking shelter and safety. What does that mean for Maggie?
LAUREN COHAN: All that Maggie knows right now is that she has lost her father, maybe her sister, maybe her husband. We are going to see her battling and be the most alone we’ve ever seen her. Not necessarily completely alone, but at times we’ll see her the most alone she’s been. How she’s going to survive by herself? It’s going to be very scary. They’re not at the prison anymore.

'The Walking Dead': Showrunner Scott Gimple promises 'answers will come quickly'

Good news, Walking Dead fans. Answers are coming! Is Baby Judith dead or alive? Will we ever find out who was feeding rats to zombies at the prison? What was that mysterious radio signal Daryl picked up in the car? Not only are these answers coming, but new characters from the comic like fan favorite Abraham are coming as well when the AMC drama returns with its final eight episodes of season 4 starting on Feb. 9. We chatted with Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple to get the scoop on what’s in store — for both the survivors and viewers. (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 GuriraAndrew Lincoln, and exec-producer Robert Kirkman.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So it looks like these next eight episodes to close out season 4 are going to have a bit of a different structure and tone, correct?
SCOTT GIMPLE: Structurally, yes this will be very different. I think the tone is actually varied. And in that variety it’s very different. There are some bright sweet moments and there are — shock upon shock — some smiles. There’s also some of the darkest material we’ve ever written as well. It really runs the gamut. I love how we’ve been able to do essentially eight little movies. Structurally, something that we get from this is beginnings, middles, and ends in each episode. Thus, because we’re telling all these different stories, not one story cut into eight, there’s a lot of different variety. READ FULL STORY

'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': Norman Reedus promises 'our best eight episodes yet'

All the survivors on The Walking Dead are in a bad place after being forced to flee the prison as a result of the failed assault by the Governor. Not only have they lost their home and their moral center in Hershel, but they have lost each other as well in the process of a hasty evacuation. However, fan favorite Daryl Dixon also has another bombshell to process: the fresh knowledge that Rick exiled his friend Carol from the group after she killed two infected inmates in the hopes of containing the disease. Will the aftermath of that discovery play out when the show returns on Feb. 9? We went armed with that question and others and posed them to the man who plays Daryl, Norman Reedus. Read on as he tells us what to expect in the final eight episodes of season 4. (Also make sure to check out out midseason preview interviews with Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So we start the back eight episodes with everyone sort of splintered off into smaller groups, and judging by what we saw at the end of the last episode and the preview where we see you two together a lot, it seems Daryl and Beth are going to be making their way out of the prison together.
NORMAN REEDUS: Well, you definitely saw them leave the prison together. Whether they stay together is yet to be seen. Everything is gone. Everyone is on the run. Daryl had found an identity with these people and was starting to feel good about himself in a lot of ways but everything has just come crashing to a halt. He assumes everyone is dead. He’s got to start over. Everyone is in a really bad place right now. READ FULL STORY
