Talking to Steven Yeun is always an enlightening experience. The guy tends to be quite thoughtful and candid when discussing The Walking Dead. Sure, we get into all the stuff you would expect, like what we will see from Glenn in the upcoming season. Yeun has plenty to say about all of that (as evidenced by the headline above). But he also enjoys veering the conversation into other directions, and they are always interesting. So read on to hear Yeun talking about not only about the show, but viewer reaction to it, and what it will take for The Walking Dead to remain a viable and vital program moving forward. Good stuff, folks. (Click through both pages to read the entire interview.) READ FULL STORY

The Walking Dead season 5 premiere is now a mere week away. We already provided a One-Minute Refresher to get you all caught up on everything that happened last season. Now, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd spills some intel on what to expect coming up when the show returns on Oct. 12.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Okay, Gale, what can you say about the overall story or theme we’re looking at this season, or at least during the first eight episodes?
GALE ANNE HURD: Well, certainly what we’re seeing is that Rick Grimes is accepting the mantle of leadership in a way that is unlike he’s ever done in previous seasons. And that tends to have a ripple effect, with his relationships across the board in this show. We’re also embarking on the most ambitious episodes we’ve ever done in terms of not only the action set pieces, but also the level of emotional weight that’s brought to bear on the characters.

She looks badass swinging her katana this way and that on The Walking Dead. No doubt about it: Michonne is one woman you don’t want to mess with in the zombie apocalypse. But how would the woman who plays her, Danai Gurira, fare in a real sword fight? Would all that training pay off if Gurira needed to start slicing and dicing herself?
We spoke to Gurira while she took a break from her recent EW cover shoot and asked about her real life sword skills. How did she respond? Just click on the video player below to find out. And for more Walking Dead intel, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss. READ FULL STORY
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.

The stars of The Walking Dead are trained well to not reveal even the tiniest morsel of information when it comes to the hit zombie drama. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t try to trick them into giving up the goods. What if we just threw huge potential spoilers at them and then deduced from their reactions whether they were true or not?
Well, that’s exactly what we did when Emily Kinney dropped by the offices recently. We put the woman who plays Beth through the wringer by forcing her to play our favorite game: GOTCHA! Can Emily make it through an entire round without inadvertently spilling any secrets about the upcoming season 5? You be the judge! Just click on the video player below to see how she does, and for more Walking Dead scoop, follow me on Twittter @DaltonRoss. Okay, let’s play a round of GOTCHA! READ FULL STORY
He has been the gentle giant of The Walking Dead, but not so gentle that he can’t take on an army of zombies if need be. However, there is no doubt that Tyreese has struggled with the new rules and level of violence often necessary in the post-apocalyptic landscape. And according to actor Chad Coleman, that struggle will continue when the show returns on Oct. 12. We chatted with Coleman about what’s coming up for Tyreese, getting back together with the cast, the mini The Wire reunion happening, and the new urban feel of season 5.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So let’s talk some Tyreese. I’m curious how he’s going to be dealing now with all the stuff that happened to him last season — his girlfriend being killed, Carol confessing to it, having to watch Carol put Lizzie down. And, on top of all that, he’s a sensitive soul. So how’s he dealing with the violence of this world and some of it by the members of his own group?
CHAD COLEMAN: Well, you know, we pick up right where we left off, so there’s no jump in time. You catch him right in the middle of it, in the tug-of-war of emotions, just wrestling with it, the push and pull. On one level feeling a connection with Carol for sure with all that we witnessed together, and just the pull of the pain of losing someone who meant so much to me. So he’s still struggling. He’s still wrestling. And then, on top of that, they’re trying to make their way to Terminus, so it’s just a push-and-pull and still trying to hold that weird little community, trying to hold it together to get to a larger safer place. And hopefully reconnect with the rest of the group. READ FULL STORY
She was just a simple farm girl once upon a time. But then the zombie apocalypse happened and her entire family went either dead or missing. I guess that’s the bad news. The good news is that at least she has a swell boyfriend who is no longer acting like a tool because he could not forgive her for being sexually assaulted by the Governor. (Not Glenn’s finest hour.)

Wow, a lot of crappy stuff happened to the survivors last season on The Walking Dead. So much crappy stuff, in fact, that not all of them are survivors anymore. But with the season 5 premiere around the corner, wouldn’t it be helpful to have that entire laundry list of misery and pain compiled in one handy dandy video lasting but one minute long? Yes! Yes, it would! So we did exactly that.
Here’s everything you need to know to get you all caught up for The Walking Dead season finale Oct. 12 on AMC. (To be honest, I had no idea I could even talk this fast. I should start auditioning for old school Federal Express revival ads.) So check it out as part of your official Walking Dead pre-game routine, and then click here for the most obscene amount of Walking Dead coverage you have ever seen in your entire life. Okay, roll the tape… READ FULL STORY
'The Walking Dead' showrunner Scott M. Gimple reveals 'time is scrambled up a little bit' in season 5
We are now less than two weeks away from the season 5 premiere of The Walking Dead. Because last season ended on a cliffhanger, details have been scarce. But we cornered showrunner Scott M. Gimple and got him to spill some intel about the upcoming episodes — just check out that cagey quote of his in the headline for one example. Read on as we talk to the big man in charge of The Walking Dead and try to pull some answers out of him. Also, could there be cursing this season?

Many fans of The Walking Dead have been hoping for a while now for poor Daryl Dixon to find true love. At first, shippers targeted Carol as a potential love interest for the crossbow-wielding warrior. However, last season, a new potential pair emerged as Daryl and Beth spent a good chunk of time together downing booze and burning down cabins. Then Beth had to go missing and ruin everything.
However, we saw in the season 5 trailer that Beth is indeed still alive (and on the receiving end of a nasty blow to the face). So there is hope these two could be reunited at some point. Should that happen, is there a chance for romance? “I don’t know,” said Emily Kinney (who plays Beth) when she paid a visit to Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105). “You have to wait and find out.” But Kinney did confirm that there are indeed feelings of some sort between the two survivors. “I would say last season what you saw, there’s definitely a connection, and a connection that’s growing. And they care about each other a lot, and so there’s definitely something really special there.” READ FULL STORY
The first thing you probably notice about Sgt. Abraham Ford is his mustache. Because it is awesome. But you will be noticing a lot more about him when season 5 of The Walking Dead kicks off on Oct. 12. We already know Abraham is intent on getting Eugene to Washington D.C. in an effort to stop the zombie plague. But readers of The Walking Dead comic know there is much more to be revealed about the character, and according to the man who plays him, Michael Cudlitz, we will see it revealed soon enough. We chatted with Cudlitz to get his take on joining the show in full, revelations about Abraham’s past, the big mission to D.C., and what else we can expect in season 5.

Norman Reedus already spoke eloquently to us about the evolution of Daryl Dixon throughout the zombie apocalypse on The Walking Dead. It was thoughtful and moving. But what if the zombie apocalypse had never happened? We asked Reedus what he thinks Daryl would be up to if life as they knew it had never changed. And judging by his answer, maybe this whole killer plague has not have been such a bad thing for Mr. Dixon after all. READ FULL STORY
'The Walking Dead' star Melissa McBride talks Carol and the 'whole other different energy' of season 5
Carol was more of a background character when The Walking Dead first started on AMC. Sure, she had a crappy husband and had to deal with her zombified daughter, but she never quite seemed integral to the main story. That all changed last season when a hardened, no-nonsense Carol emerged and started recognizing that drastic times call for drastic measures. She killed Tyreese’s girlfriend and some other poor schmo and burned their bodies in an attempt to stop the spread of a deadly virus: That lead to her being kicked out of the prison by Rick. And then she shot and killed her adopted daughter Lizzie after realizing the girl was a complete psychopath. (But a super sweet psychopath, it should be noted.)
All of this was played to pure perfection by actress Melissa McBride, who has helped turn Carol into one of the can’t-miss-characters on the show. With The Walking Dead returning for season 5 on Oct. 12, we caught up with Melissa to chat about awards, spoilers, and what we can expect coming up. READ FULL STORY
