'The Walking Dead' star Danai Gurira wigs out

walking-dead-danai-gurira

Michonne looks like a badass. And a good part of that badassery is due to her hair — those flowing dreadlocks that whip around as she is slicing and dicing zombies left and right. But it’s not real. I’m not talking about the zombies — which are, of course, totally 100% real — but rather the hair. It’s actually a wig worn by actress Dania Gurira to achieve maximum Michonne. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' star Andrew Lincoln says to fear the beard in season 5

walking-dead-andrew-lincoln

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

'Z Nation' ratings tie 'Walking Dead' (if you move the decimal point)

Z-NATION.jpg

Z Nation ratings came in much, much lower than that other zombie drama’s average — as of course you would expect. But how can we compare Syfy’s new walker zombie drama Z Nation to its most obvious inspiration?

Z Nation debuted to 1.6 million for its Friday night premiere, which is fairly low wattage for a Syfy drama series. But Syfy points out this is a record premiere number for an acquired show produced by an outside part (Sharkado production company The Asylum made Z Nation). The network further noted more viewers watched Z Nation than the most recent telecasts of The Leftovers on HBO, Teen Wolf on MTV and Doctor Who on BBCA — so there.

But let’s look up that dizzying comparison to AMC’s mega-hit The Walking Dead anyway. It’s interesting that Z Nation pulled 1.6 million viewers because that’s the same as The Walking Dead‘s fourth season fall premiere — if you move the decimal point over a notch (16 million viewers). The 2010 series premiere of Walking Dead delivered 5.4 million viewers.

There was one place that Z Nation was an unqualified hit, however: BitTorrent! The show reportedly strongly surged in online pirating after its premiere.

Everyone has secrets. And the cast members of The Walking Dead are no different. We already got them to come clean about Andrew Lincoln’s curious choice in hairstyles, but we were far from done. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' creator Robert Kirkman says he knows 'exactly' how the comic will end

Robert Kirkman has multiple versions of The Walking Dead working in his head at all times. As the creator of the original Walking Dead comic book, there is that story to consider. And as an exec producer of the TV adaptation, there’s that “remix” version to worry about as well. With the AMC show about to kick off season 5 on Oct. 12, I asked Kirkman if he and showrunner Scott M. Gimple had begun to think about the end game for the television version. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' companion series gets pilot greenlight

the-walking-dead-02

The Walking Dead companion series pilot is a go.

EW can exclusively report that AMC has officially ordered a pilot set in the same zombie-plagued universe as TV’s top-rated drama series. The as-yet-untitled project will go into production later this year, and will be set in a different location than the original series and star a new cast of characters. (Since the characters are different, the series not technically a “spinoff.”)

The Walking Dead executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert are all on board for the new project. Dave Erickson (Sons of Anarchy) was tapped as showrunner back in March. Kirkman and Erickson recently turned in a pilot script, which we’re told really impressed AMC’s executive ranks. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' star Norman Reedus describes a 'feral' Daryl in season 5

Nobody puts baby in a corner, and nobody puts Daryl Dixon in a train car. So how does Daryl feel about the predicament he’s in when season 5 of The Walking Dead kicks off Oct. 12 on AMC? We went and asked the man who plays him, Norman Reedus. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' cast teases season 5: We're heading into 'the heart of darkness'

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.

New 'Walking Dead' image shows Norman Reedus' Daryl Dixon ready for action

When we showed you the first exclusive image of Daryl Dixon from season 5 of The Walking Dead, he appeared to be in a bit of a bind…literally, in fact, seeing as how he was gagged and bound. Let’s just say that many fans of the crossbow-wielding warrior (played by Norman Reedus) were less than pleased to see their main man in such peril. Now we have a brand new exclusive gallery shot from the upcoming season (which premieres Oct. 12 on AMC), and this one should have Reedus Nation breathing a bit easier. Just click on the “Full Size” magnifying glass tab above to see the full picture in all of its glory. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' star Andrew Lincoln warns 'brutal is the word for this season'

walking-dead-andrew-lincoln

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

'The Walking Dead' stars Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan talk Glenn and Maggie

Glenn and Maggie spent a good chunk of last season of The Walking Dead trying to find each other. They finally did! Annnnnnnd then they promptly got captured at Terminus. Well, that kind of sucks.

So that begs the question: Are Glenn and Maggie better off being safe but separate, or trapped together? And when a question begs, we ask it, so ask it we did of the actors who play Glenn and Maggie — Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan. Which scenario would Glenn and Maggie prefer? “That a good question,” said Cohan while taking a break from her EW Walking Dead cover shoot. “Are they better together but in peril, or separately but free? I think that really Maggie and Glenn are better together. Even if it’s the most perilous situation you know that they’ll find a way out of it — or at least you hope that they’ll find a way out of it. They spent a lot of time trying to find each last year — it’s like, no more!” READ FULL STORY

Danai Gurira of 'The Walking Dead' on the 'ferocity' of Michonne in season 5

walking-dead-danai-gurira

Let’s be honest: Michonne’s timing kind of sucks. Just when the loner with the samurai sword starts opening herself up to others and trusting people, she ends up locked in a train car by people who may or may not want to eat her. So, it’s not exactly kumbaya time, is what we’re getting at.

Keeping all that in mind, what kind of Michonne can we expect to see in season 5 (which kicks off Oct. 12 on AMC)? Actress Danai Gurira says that there will be an internal struggle as Michonne will feel pulled in two different directions. “She does yearn for something more stable in life,” Gurira told us while taking a break from posing for her new EW Walking Dead cover. “She really believes that Carl needs something more stable than where they are and what they have been experiencing, but also she’s very committed to what has to be done. She’s a woman who does what has to be done, so that involves a lot of ferocity.” READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' cast reveals how they would like their characters to die

The-Walking-Dead-Season-5-trailer.jpg

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
