'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman says 'I got a pretty good idea when all of them are dying'

The-Walking-Dead-Season-5-trailer-02.jpg

The cast members of The Walking Dead live in almost constant fear that their character could be killed off at any time. Why, even when folks like Norman Reedus get calls from the producers hiring them for other jobs they still think they are getting bad news. Perhaps making them even more paranoid about their livelihood is the news that The Walking Dead creator already has the cast on death watch, complete with a timetable of all of their demises.

When Robert Kirkman stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, Channel 105) while out at Comic Con, Jessica Shaw and I asked him about how tough it is to say goodbye to someone when they are killed off the show. “It’s kinda worse than that,” says Kirkman. “Because I got a pretty good idea when all of them are dying. To a certain extent, if we follow the comic, like possibly even more than [showrunner] Scott [Gimple] knows.”

Kirkman then began pointing at imaginary bodies around the room to illustrate his point. “So I’m always like…two years, three years, six months, two weeks, oh, God this is awful! It’s really rough. Doing the comic, it was fine because it was just lines on a paper. Whatever. We’re killing that guy. Cool. But the show, it sucks because we all work together, we hang out, and have a great time. But, you know, the story’s gotta get done and people gots to die, as I like to say. It’s pretty rough.”

Even worse, Kirkman and Gimple cannot tell the castmembers in question when their number is up in case plans change last minute. “You can’t tell ’em,” says Kirkman. “Because we change our minds all the time. And that’s the other really bad thing about it. We can’t really give them that much warning because there’s always a chance that we’ll get into actually writing the scripts after we plan things out and we’re like, ‘Nope, that character’s living.’ Which has happened many times. So we don’t want to have many false news giving situations.”

Andrew Lincoln says 'The Walking Dead' 'won't be without its share of death this season'

The-Walking-Dead-Season-5-trailer-05.jpg

Lest you fret that everyone’s favorite post-apocalyptic zombie drama was going to mellow with age in its fifth season, Andrew Lincoln has some news for you. When discussing The Walking Dead’s penchant for killing off characters during a visit to Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) at Comic-Con, Lincoln told us “It is an inevitable part of this show. It’s one of the great things, I think, that you have real jeopardy for favorite characters. It won’t be without its share of death this season.” Uh-oh, sounds like some necks may be on the line in season 5…which is not to imply that Rick Grimes is set to continue his gnarly throat-chomping binge (R.I.P., Claimers.)

Lincoln was joined by his castmates Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney and Chad Coleman, along with executive producer Gale Anne Hurd as the group infiltrated the EW Radio studio to discus their latest conquest of Comic-Con, and you can hear the entire conversation right here and right now by clicking on the audio player icon below. (The rest of the cast — Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Michael Cudlitz, as well as producers Scott M. Gimple and Denise Huth — stopped by as well, and you can listen to that visit right here.) READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' cast and producers promise that 'every single thing in the first episode is a spoiler'

Fans have been weighing in with their thoughts about the new Walking Dead season 5 trailer that debuted at Comic-Con in San Diego, but what about the cast and producers themselves? What do they have to say about it? After the awesome experience of watching them watch it on a monitor while backstage at their panel, I asked Team Walking Dead their thoughts later when they stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studio at the convention, and now you can hear the entire conversation by clicking on the audio player icon below.

Joining us were none other than cast members Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, and Michael Cudlitz, along with executive producer Scott M. Gimple and co-executive producer Denise Huth. So what do they make of the clip, in which, according to Cudlitz, “it certainly looks like we’re heading to DC” to find a cure for the zombie outbreak? It seems the cast has been getting a kick listening to fans hypothesize as to what it all means. “The theories are fantastic,” says Gurira. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' cast compares upcoming season to 'Three's Company'

SDCC-VIDEO-WALKING-DEAD-02.jpg

The Walking Dead might seem like a serious show, but it’s getting a sitcom makeover next season: “It has like a Martin slash Three’s Company feel,” star Danai Gurira deadpanned to EW at Comic-Con.

As you can probably guess, The Walking Dead is most likely not getting a laugh track anytime soon, but the cast was happy to elaborate on some rumors that the show would become more light-hearted when they stopped by the EW Hideout. Lauren Cohan, Norman Reedus, Michael Cudlitz, Steven Yeun, and Gurira also joked about potential Comic-Con disguises and more unlikely Walking Dead scenarios—like picnics.

Watch the recently released season-five trailer for yourself, then watch their interview to compare notes. Moral of the story: Don’t trust anything the cast says.

'The Walking Dead' season 5 trailer is here

AMC has released the trailer for The Walking Dead‘s fifth season—and it looks like it’ll be action-packed.

The three-minute-plus trailer shows Rick Grimes and his team dealing with the villainous Terminus gang by apparently haggling a mission. The groups appear to force a trip to Washington, D.C., where they’ll try to cure the zombie plague. “From the opening tease in the premiere onward, season 5 is without question the most ambitious and satisfying season this amazing team has ever crafted,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “In the zombie apocalypse, event television is alive and well, and I am proud to acknowledge that this uniquely talented writing staff, production team, and cast have once again raised the bar (and the crossbow).”

AMC also announced a season 5 premiere date: Sunday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. Below, check out the season 5 promo that just debuted at TWD‘s Comic-Con panel: READ FULL STORY

Norman Reedus of 'The Walking Dead' talks about disguising himself as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

Norman Reedus is a Comic-Con favorite. But he loves the convention as much as the convention loves him. In fact, The Walking Dead star has been known to do some celebrity stalking himself. “I took a selfie with Anthony Bourdain and the lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!,” says Reedus of one of his favorite Comic-Con encounters. “I was like, this is the best moment ever!” But wait, did Bourdain and “lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!” (also known as DJ Lance Rock) even know who Reedus was? “The Yo Gabba Gabba! guy, he knew. Anthony Bourdain kind of looked at me like, what the hell are you doing right now? But I’m a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain. If I didn’t have this job as Daryl Dixon, I would definitely want his job.”

Of course, there are scores upon scores of fans who would kill to get up close and personal with Reedus. But that can be a bit of a problem for when the star wants to go walk the convention floor. To try to an evade prying eyes, Reedus has employed a variety of costumes over the years so he can mingle undetected with even the most hardcore fans. He shared one such story about going incognito with a Walking Dead castmate. READ FULL STORY

See Carol, Judith, and Rick of 'The Walking Dead' in new season 5 images

Last week we brought you an exclusive image from season 5 of The Walking Dead that likely sent shivers up the spines of Daryl Dixon fans, as the resident badass appeared gagged and bound. Now we have some more exclusive episodic images to tide you over.

In the first, we see Melissa McBride’s Carol holding an adorable baby Judith. Sooooo…good news, they’re still alive! When the season starts, that is. After that, who knows? But at least Carol is not telling Judith to “look at the flowers,” because we all know how that ends. Also, Judith does not appear to be a zombie. So that’s a positive…although she does appear to be rocking something of a devilock hairstyle. (Click on the Full Size magnifying glass tab to see a bigger high-res version of the photo.)

But wait, we’re not done. Now, let’s move onto page 2 for a look at what Rick Grimes is up to.

New 'Walking Dead' season 5 art features cast in handcuffs

AMC has released new The Walking Dead art for season five (which premieres in October) just in time for the show’s Comic-Con panel this Friday afternoon in San Diego. In it, we see Rick, Carl, Michonne, Daryl, Glenn, Maggie, and Abraham ready to do battle. Just a few problems: First off, they are still in that damn train car. And secondly, they all appear to be handcuffed, which severely limits their collective ass-kicking capabilities. (To see the full image, just click on the magnifying glass icon on the picture above.)

'The Walking Dead': Norman Reedus thought Daryl Dixon was about to be killed off last season

Last week we brought you an exclusive photo from season 5 of The Walking Dead that showed Daryl Dixon gagged and bound. No doubt that sent shivers down the spines among fans of Dixon and the man who plays him, Norman Reedus. Of course, as a fan favorite, Daryl would seem to be the last person the show would ever dream of killing off. However, Reedus did actually think his number was being called near the end of season 4 when Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman…well, called his number. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman talks season 5 and promises 'our best season yet'

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

See Norman Reedus' Daryl Dixon gagged and bound on 'The Walking Dead'

“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

Video: 'The Walking Dead' cast promises bloodiest season yet

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

'The Walking Dead': See the bloody new Rick Grimes statue -- EXCLUSIVE

rick-grimes-statue-01.jpg

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.
