Season 4 of The Walking Dead may have ended with a cliffhanger and many questions about the folks of Terminus that trapped our group of survivors, but creator Robert Kirkman says when the show returns in October that we will “very quickly deal with the situation that we left them in.” And that’s not all he told us. As Kirkman and Co. prepare to return to Comic-Con in San Diego (their panel is on Friday, July 25), the man who gave birth to the comic book and is an executive producer on the TV adaptation talked more about what — and whom — we can expect to see in season 5. (WARNING: Spoilers below. So now you’ve been warned.) READ FULL STORY

“If Daryl dies, we riot” has been a familiar refrain from fans of the crossbow-wielding Daryl Dixon. That means Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman could have a melee on his hands if he does indeed off Daryl as he promised on Entertainment Weekly Radio (although we’re pretty sure he was kidding). Regardless, Dixon devotees are likely to gasp at this exclusive new image from season 5 of the zombie drama, which returns in October on AMC. (Click on the Full Size magnifying tab to view the full image in all of its high resolution glory.)
In it, we see a bloodied and bruised Daryl, who has also been gagged and bound…and not in a sexy way as legions of ladies no doubt dream about on a daily basis. (Or maybe this is considered sexy. I have no idea. People are into some freaky stuff.) READ FULL STORY
The cast of The Walking Dead is back to work in Atlanta! Yesterday, AMC released a behind-the-scenes look at The Walking Dead‘s fifth-season premiere this fall. Based on the video, this season will be more “intense and bloodier than” the show has ever done before.
“This episode is so disturbing,” said Lauren Cohan. “Some of the the stuff they shot yesterday, I don’t know if it’ll make it to TV.” READ FULL STORY
Rick Grimes is back to kicking ass on The Walking Dead TV show. But he never really stopped kicking ass in The Walking Dead comic book — even when the dude lost one of his hands. To commemorate the former sheriff’s deputy’s ass-kicking adventures, McFarlane Toys is releasing a new statue of the Rickster. And not just any old statue, mind you, but a “limited-edition, highly-detailed, hand-crafted cold-cast resin statue”…which I believe is French for “super fancy.” How fancy? Well, it stands more than 14 inches tall on a “360 degree rotating rubble base.” So, like I said…FANCY!
But see for yourself as we’ve got your first exclusive images of the product right here with a close up photo above and a photo of the full statue below (along with other goodies). See Rick Grimes strangle one zombie, while blasting another with a kill shot right through the brains. Then there’s the unlucky chap with an axe sticking out of his head. That’ll leave a mark.

The folks from The Walking Dead have not exactly been forthcoming with info as to what is in store for our not-so-merry band of survivors trapped in train car A when the zombie drama returns to AMC in October. But when Robert Kirkman called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk about his new comic Outcast, he also spilled the beans on what we can expect in the season 5 premiere of TWD. So what should we expect? Answers! And lots of them, especially when it comes to the (possibly cannibal) captors of Terminus. “There’s a lot going on with Terminus,” says Kirkmam. “In our premiere episode of season 5 we’re going to give a ton of answers of who the people of Terminus are, what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, what’s going on with them. And by the end of that episode you’re going to have a much better understanding of what’s going on with them and why they’re so important to the show. Oh, and Daryl dies.” READ FULL STORY
The Walking Dead is well into filming on season 5 of the apocalyptic zombie drama, so we figured it was time to check in and see how things were going down on the Georgia set. We dialed up our main man Norman Reedus to get a feel for the vibe down there, and Reedus is definitely pumped about what has transpired so far. “These scripts are the best scripts so far, and I’m really just excited to be back at it,” says the man who plays Daryl Dixon. “There are a lot of characters right now, so there are a lot of really different personalities on set. And it’s super interesting, everyone’s really bringing it. It’s going great. It’s so dynamic because it’s so fast-paced and so complicated. It’s great to be back.” READ FULL STORY
The Walking Dead began filming for season 5 a little over a week ago, and since we are desperate to find out what’s going on there, we checked in with our spy on the set. And that spy happens to be none other than Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. So, how’s it going so far down in Atlanta, Robert? “You feel like you never left,” says Kirkman. “Everyone’s happy to be back together, so it’s been pretty great and everybody’s bringing their A game still, 5 years in. We’re doing new and different and crazy and exciting things and now I think the atmosphere is that we can’t wait until we can start sharing things with people and start showing things to people because we’re really excited about what we’re doing here. We think we’re making another magical season.” READ FULL STORY
A little boy named Damien is once again about to haunt your dreams, but this time on the small screen.
The young boy from the classic 1976 horror film (and 2006 remake) The Omen is now an adult facing his true destiny as the Antichrist in Damien, a new TV series in development for Lifetime from former The Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news of the project with Mazzara writing the script and executive producing under his overall deal with Fox Television Studios. In addition to already being a horror expert thanks to The Walking Dead, Mazzara also created the movie-to-TV adaptation of the Academy-Award winning film Crash for Starz.
Damien is a follow-up to the Antichrist story based on the original film that starred Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as parents who secretly adopt the baby of a mother who died at the same time of their own child’s birth, only to learn that their son Damien is the Antichrist. The original spawned two sequels and later two movie adaptations in the ’90s. A 2006 remake starring Julia Stiles and Liev Schreiber grossed over $100 million worldwide.
Norman Reedus recently shared what he knew about season 5 of The Walking Dead — which was somewhere between “not much” and “I’m not telling.” But filming has since commenced on season 5 and we have our first official look. That’s the good news. Now here is the bad — it doesn’t show much. READ FULL STORY
It is about that time when actors for The Walking Dead are reassembling back in Atlanta to begin work on season 5 of the AMC zombie drama. With that in mind, we caught up with Daryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus, recently and asked how much creator Robert Kirkman and showrunner Scott M. Gimple had told him about what to expect coming up. “A bit,” says Reedus. “Those guys are very good at telling you a bunch of stuff, and you sit there for an hour and you walk away and go, ‘What the hell did he just say? What’s going on?’ They’re very good at masking what they want to tell you.” (As someone that has interviewed both men several times, I can certainly attest to that.) READ FULL STORY
Sunday’s season 4 finale of The Walking Dead ended with 12 of our heroes locked inside train car A by the folks at Terminus. That would seem to be advantage: bad guys. But our survivors have something the apparent cannibals do not: Rick Grimes, who delivered a slightly more family friendly version of one of his classic lines from the comic book on which the AMC drama is based: “They’re screwing with the wrong people!” The season ended right there on that cliffhanger, and now we have more intel on exactly how shooting that final scene went down. Alanna Masterson, who plays Tara, called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning to chat all about the big finale and her time so far on the show, and she took us inside the train car to tell us all about the filming of that big scene.
[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. (Click through both pages to read the entire interview. Also make sure to read our finale interviews with showrunner Scott M. Gimple and star Andrew Lincoln.)
