BETH IS ALIVE!!!! Well, not really. But the woman who played her on The Walking Dead has returned…and we don’t mean as a reanimated zombie. Emily Kinney debuted her new single “Rockstar” today, and there is only one place you can watch the music video for it. Can you guess where? Yes, here! That was easy, right? READ FULL STORY
Tag: The Walking Dead (1-10 of 374)
A key role has been filled on The Walking Dead companion series.
Cliff Curtis (Gang Related, Sunshine) has joined the project in what’s described as a male lead role, EW has confirmed. The actor will play a father who’s trying do to the right thing.
Curtis joins previously cast Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Woods).
The Walking Dead companion series is at the pilot stage, written by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson, but is almost certainly getting an eventual series order. It’s set in the same zombie apocalypse universe as the original hit series, yet in a different location (and possibly during a different time as well).
AMC says it’s sorry for spoiling its own hit show’s midseason finale. The cable network posted a message on The Walking Dead‘s Facebook page last night apologizing for prematurely revealing which major character died during the zombie drama’s winter closer.
“We heard your feedback to last night’s post, and we’re sorry,” the statement reads. “With zero negative intent, we jumped the gun and put up a spoiler. Please know we’re going to work to ensure that, in the future, possible spoilers by official AMC social feeds are killed before they can infect, certainly before the West Coast (U.S.) broadcast of The Walking Dead. As always, thank you for watching, and keep the comments coming. We appreciate all of your support. #RIPSpoiler.” READ FULL STORY
[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s midseason finale of The Walking Dead.]
We got answers in The Walking Dead’s midseason finale last night. But we also have new questions! Like when was it decided to kill off Beth? How will Maggie recover to the latest in a long line of Greene family deaths? Is Rick becoming Gareth? How close is Morgan to the group? And what can we expect when the show returns in 2015? Like I said, we have questions! So we asked them to the main man in charge, showrunner Scott M. Gimple. And here’s what he told us. (Also make sure to check out our deep dive with Andrew Lincoln, midseason finale Q&A with Norman Reedus, and emotional chat with Emily Kinney.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tell me how you came to the decision to kill Beth. Was that the plan once you came up with the whole hospital story structure and mapped out the direction for the first eight episodes, or did it evolve that way later?
SCOTT M. GIMPLE: I will say that it evolved a little bit. We were going over a lot of different iterations of the season and the way that this story fits into the greater story this season and the way that it fit into Beth’s story itself — it was the story we both wanted and didn’t want to tell. We absolutely wanted to tell this very tragic story of someone who found out that they were strong all along. And even so strong as to not be able to swallow injustice when it is given to them with Noah being left behind. And strong enough to believe that maybe she would lash out against this person — and really sort of underline who she didn’t want to become, which is someone who is compromised like Dawn. That’s the tragedy, that the compromised person took her down, which is a very painful story. And it’s not a story that we relish making the audience watch, but the feeling that that leaves to the audience and to the characters is a portion of the story that we’re telling and will resonate into next season and put the characters in the places that we find them.

Sunday night’s The Walking Dead mid-season finale will be the last episode until the show’s fifth season returns in 2015. But AMC offered a peek at what’s to come for the show’s survivors—and it isn’t pretty.
[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s midseason finale of The Walking Dead. Because AMC didn’t send screeners of the finale, we weren’t able to write the recap ahead of time. Look for it soon.] READ FULL STORY
'The Walking Dead' star Sonequa Martin-Green on Sasha's big mistake and a 'gut-wrenching' midseason finale
I don’t blame her. After all, that Grady Memorial Hospital cop named Bob seemed like a decent enough guy. And he shared the same name as Sasha’s boyfriend Bob, who got…you know, eaten. So Tyreese’s sister maybe wasn’t thinking completely clearly when she agreed to help her prisoner by putting his former friend out of his zombie misery — only to get bum rushed and knocked out, allowing said prisoner to escape. Whoops! We caught up with the woman who plays Sasha, Sonequa Martin-Green, to get her thoughts on what the heck happened. She also breaks down the other big moments of the episode for Sasha and previews next Sunday’s midseason finale, which she promises will run “the whole gamut.” READ FULL STORY
Will someone die on Sunday’s midseason finale of The Walking Dead? It could go either way. Last season, both Hershel and the Governor met their ends at the halfway point. So did Sophia in the Barnageddon massacre that closed the first half of season 2. However, season 3’s eighth episode featured no major character deaths (sorry, not counting Oscar or Zombie Penny), so there is no guarantee that someone will be biting the dust on Sunday. But let’s play the timeless game of “What if…?” to try and determine who might be the one to go should somebody not make it to 2015. READ FULL STORY
