Do you have a fixin’ for the Dixons? It seems to be only a matter of time before Daryl is reunited with his racist redneck brother Merle on The Walking Dead, especially with Merle now surfacing in season 3 alongside the Governor in the town of Woodbury. But we’re super impatient and couldn’t wait for that to happen, so we brought the two people who play them, Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker, together for one of our four Walking Dead season 3 sneak peek covers.

'The Walking Dead': Danai Gurira (a.k.a. Michonne) explains her armless, jawless zombie 'Pets' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
The season 2 finale of The Walking Dead featured the arresting image of a hooded, katana sword-wielding figure carrying around two zombies in chains. That walking warrior was none other than Michonne, one of the most popular characters from the comic book on which the AMC drama is based. Now the woman who plays Michonne, Danai Gurira, gives some insight into those armless, jawless zombies known as “Pets,” which we will see much more of when season 3 premieres on Oct. 14.
Gurira took a minute out from posing as a badass for one of our four new Walking Dead Entertainment Weekly covers to discuss where the Pets come from (“They are connected to Michonne’s past,” she says—but will it be the same past as the comic?), as well as why she keeps them chained by her side (“She’s realized she’s the higher life form. So how do you make the lower life form work for you?”).
Check out more fresh intel on Michonne’s zombie Pets — as well as footage from our photo shoot — in the video player below. And you can buy the Michonne EW cover (or all four Walking Dead covers in a special bundle pack) right here.
With Michonne and the Governor, The Walking Dead is bringing two of the most famous characters from the comic to the screen for season 3 (which kicks off on AMC Oct. 14). But there will also be at least one completely new original character to join the fray. Dallas Roberts (who also starred on AMC’s Rubicon and has a recurring role as Juliana Margulies’ brother on The Good Wife) will be stepping in to play Milton, one of the residents of the Governor-ruled community of Woodbury.
“Milton is the details guy,” explains exec producer Robert Kirkman. “He’s the guy that works with the Governor, who is monitoring all situations and is trying to help the Governor make sense of this world that they’re living in. He’s not exactly a scientist, but he’s a smart guy that is trying to find out how zombies behave. Watching him do his little experiments is going to be a lot of fun.” (Zombie experiments? Here’s hoping Bub from Day of the Dead makes a cameo as one of the subjects.) READ FULL STORY »
'The Walking Dead': New time-lapse video shows how to make a zombie in under 90 seconds -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
From my time as an extra, I am all too familiar with the process of being turned into a zombie for AMC’s The Walking Dead. It basically involves sitting still for 90 minutes while people slap prosthetics and blood all over your face, and then blind you by sticking demon contact lenses into your eyes. But if you want to see for yourself just what it’s like, then we have a special treat for you — a time-lapse video showing the entire process of a lovely lady being transformed into a flesh-eating ghoul right before our very eyes. And why would she subject herself to such a process? To be part of Entertainment Weekly’s Walking Dead cover shoot!
That’s right, while there may not be a new EW on stands this week due to last week’s Fall Movie Preview double issue, next week will bring a special first look cover at season 3 of The Walking Dead. What will the cover look like? Who will be on it? I can’t tell you! (Yet.) But we can show you monster makeup guru and Walking Dead exec producer Greg Nicotero (in the badass red Millennium Falcon t-shirt) and his team in action, and what it takes to turn a perfectly nice woman into a member of the undead. In this special time-lapse video below we show you the entire 90-minute process in under 90 seconds. See what it takes to become an Entertainment Weekly zombie, and then keep your eyes peeled for next week’s big Walking Dead cover. Or should I say…covers?

'The Walking Dead': Deleted scene from original season 2 opening reveals abandoned storyline -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
It is well known that instead of starting with Rick talking into his walkie-talkie and then the group being pretty much already out of Atlanta, the original plan for The Walking Dead’s season 2 premiere was to pick up just seconds after the CDC was blown to bits in the season 1 finale. I was on set playing the part of a zombie for an intense sequence in which Shane’s car breaks down just a few blocks away from the explosion, leaving him isolated from the group and having to fight off and outrun an army of the undead before finally being rescued by the group in the RV. But what happened after that?
More of the story will be revealed when The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season DVD and Blu-ray sets are released on August 28. And you can get your first taste right here. In this exclusive clip following Shane’s rescue, we see the survivors trying to seek shelter with some familiar faces from season 1— Guillermo and the Vatos. But when Rick and Co. arrive back at the nursing home where Glenn was once held hostage, well…the people they find there are not people at all, setting off a frenzied attack.

Stars from 'Walking Dead,' 'True Blood,' more take the stage at EW's Women Who Kick Ass Comic-Con panel
As a big supporter of strong women, Entertainment Weekly brought together some of entertainment’s most bad-ass females for a panel during San Diego Comic-Con. Moderated by EW’s Lynette Rice, the Women Who Kick Ass panel featured Kristin Kreuk (Beauty and the Beast, Smallville), Nikki Reed (Twilight, Breaking Dawn), Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead), Anna Torv (Fringe), Kristin Bauer van Straten (True Blood), and surprise guest Lucy Lawless (Spartacus) for a wide-ranging chat about stereotypes, the challenges that come with playing a tough woman, and…going to jail?! Read on for the highlights:
+ FREE LUCY Lawless, who was arrested in February after she and other activists protested aboard an oil-drilling ship in New Zealand, told the crowd that she’s not sure what will go down at her sentencing on Sept. 12, but admitted, “I am guilty — of trying to save the environment!” Massive cheers erupted.

The Panel: Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Laurie Holden (Andrea), Steven Yuen (Glenn), and Laura Cohan (Maggie) were joined onstage by new cast members Danai Gurira (Michonne) and David Morrissey (The Governor), along with Walking Dead comic book co-creator/emergent geek god Robert Kirkman, exec producers David Alpert and Gale Ann Hurd, exec producer/zombie makeup maestro Greg Nicotero, and showrunner Glen Mazzara.
The Big Revelations: Dead finally has a premiere date for its third season: the show is returning on Sunday, Oct. 14th, at 9 p.m. Most of the broad strokes of the new season were already revealed before the panel, so fans were excited to get a look at the season’s two new settings: The survivor colony-town Woodbury, and a zombie-infested prison.

'The Walking Dead': See the first season 3 poster with Michonne, Rick and The Governor here! -- EXCLUSIVE
Back in May, we gave you the first look at fan-favorite Michonne from season 3 of The Walking Dead (which returns on AMC in October). Then, earlier this week, we hooked you up with a sneak peek at the highly-anticipated prison. Now we have another exclusive goodie for you — the first season 3 poster for the zombie drama, which will be plastered all over Comic-Con in San Diego next week. Not only that, but showrunner Glen Mazzara also provided us with some fresh intel on what’s to come, especially with the two big new characters seen on the poster: warrior Michonne (played by Danai Gurira) and super villain The Governor (David Morrissey). See below for both the poster and comments from Mazzara. (Is that a helicopter I see flying behind The Governor? Hmmm…) READ FULL STORY »
InsideTV Podcast: 'The Walking Dead,' 'Game of Thrones,' 'Fringe,' 'True Blood' and more in special Comic-Con edition!
With Comic-Con less than one week away, it’s time to let our geek flag fly. Jessica Shaw and I invited Jeff Jensen and Darren Franich into the studio for our first ever Entertainment Weekly podcast crossover episode! (It’s just like that time the beauties of Charlie’s Angels went on The Love Boat looking for a stolen statue, only with significantly less Lido deck.) What TV show panels are we most looking forward to out in San Diego? Which panels can’t help but deliver a healthy dose of awkward (Community with no Dan Harmon)? And why am I the only one excited about the upcoming Shazam! extravaganza?
In addition, Darren explains why he worries about Game of Thrones not sending its heavy hitters, Jeff drops some intel about the highly anticipated Firefly reunion he is moderating, and Jessica rolls her eyes over all the incredibly nerdy things being discussed in her presence. READ FULL STORY »
Ask most readers of The Walking Dead comic book what their favorite setting is and they’ll say two words: the prison. Seen briefly in the distance in the final shot of season 2, the prison will become the new fortress/home for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company when the AMC drama returns in October… if they can clear it out the undead walkers, that is. And now we have our exclusive first sneak peek of the jail, as well as the current zombie inhabitants that call it home. In the first photo, our survivors assume a defensive, Avengers-like position to handle any incoming ghouls, while in the second, a machete-wielding Maggie (Lauren Cohan) prepares to deliver a kill shot to a zombie inmate. Check out the photos below as well as intel from executive producers Glen Mazzara and Robert Kirkman on the highly anticipated new setting for season 3. READ FULL STORY »
The lineup for Friday’s Comic-Con panels was just released, and much like Thursday’s schedule, there is quite a lot to be excited about. In addition to already-announced panels such as Bones and Spartacus, we now have exciting details about the Game of Thrones panel. It will be moderated by none other than George R.R. Martin and will feature Alfie Allen, Emilia Clarke, Michelle Fairley, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, and Richard Madden.
It has been 10 years since Firefly, and Comic-Con is giving you the perfect excuse to reminisce. Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, Morena Baccarin, Sean Maher, and Summer Glau will get together for a panel that doubles as a trip down memory lane. READ FULL STORY »
You know who would make an awesome zombie? Walter White.
Just wanted to share that thought while writing up AMC’s press release announcing its Comic-Con plans. The cable network is bringing The Walking Dead (duh!), Breaking Bad (ohhhh), and Comic Book Men (you know, the Kevin Smith show).
Here’s the rundown: READ FULL STORY »
Ever since we saw that cloaked figure brandishing a katana sword while accompanied by two chained up armless zombies in The Walking Dead’s season 2 finale, fans have been salivating for a first look at the woman under the hood — Michonne.
