Things looked bleak for Merle Dixon on The Walking Dead’s midseason finale cliffhanger. The Governor had reunited Merle with his long lost brother Daryl and appeared ready to kill them both. But if one of these exclusive pictures from the show’s return episode on Sunday, Feb. 10 on AMC is to believed, it looks like Merle may make it out of the encounter alive, only to have an up close and personal encounter with another dangerous foe — an encounter that ends with said foe missing a face. But before we can get to that gnarly picture (seriously, don’t view after eating lunch) here are some other revealing shots from the next episode of The Walking Dead. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Glen Mazzara teases what's next for the survivors and says a 'major character' from the comic to appear soon
The midseason Walking Dead finale left us with many questions: Are the Dixon brothers done for? Has Rick lost his marbles? And how will new addition Tyrese fit into the equation? So with the show returning Sunday, Feb. 10 on AMC, we sought out showrunner Glen Mazzara (who will be leaving the drama after this season) for answers as to what to expect in the season’s last eight episodes. In the following Q&A, Mazzara promises a “major personal crisis” for Rick, a conflicted Daryl, and a vengeful Glenn. He also sheds some light on what we can expect from Tyrese, reveals another character from the comic will soon be making the leap from page to screen, and hints that there may be more death on the horizon.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So when we last left off, Rick and company came into Woodbury and got Glenn and Maggie out. So I assume that’s it between them and the Governor. All water under the bridge, right?
GLEN MAZZARA: Yeah, I think they buy a house together. It’s very nice. And then they pick out curtains.
EW: What can you say about this brewing confrontation between the two sides?
MAZZARA: One of the things I’m excited about is we’re on the path for this showdown, and the Governor and Rick have still not seen each other as we went through those first eight episodes. They know about each other and each one realizes that the other guy can threaten everything that he has spent the past year building. And the Governor is certainly a big threat to Rick and can destroy his entire group, and the Governor sees Rick as a threat that can destroy all of his plans by showing that he was not the most powerful force in this world — that he was unable to protect Woodbury. Rick and Michonne and the group came in and sucker-punched him. So both guys now have a vendetta against each other. READ FULL STORY
What’s next for Rick, The Governor and, of course, the Dixon brothers in the zombie Thunderdome?
AMC has released a new trailer for the 2013 midseason return of The Walking Dead. “We’re going to war” starting Feb 10 when TV’s highest-rated series in the adult demo returns. And for those who missed it, here’s the show’s midseason “Eye For An Eye” poster.
First, here’s the new video:
The Walking Dead is such a big hit that AMC is releasing a new marketing poster for its second half of the season. The image teases the next showdown between Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the now one-eyed Governor (David Morrissey). Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
There’s nothing better than a loyal friend (or two) to help fight your battles. On Friday, Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and Last Resort creator Shawn Ryan turned to Twitter to show their disdain for AMC and the sudden exit of their pal Glen Mazzara as showrunner of The Walking Dead.
Sutter, who has a tendency to let his strong feelings known via social media, took the first shot, calling AMC suits “small-minded” and ‘bottom-line thinkers who have no appreciation or gratitude for the effort of its creative personnel.” (Sutter, like Ryan, worked with Mazzara on The Shield.) “Time and time again we see events like what happened today with Glen Mazzara. They continue to disrespect writers, shi– on their audience and bury their network.”

The recent midseason finale of The Walking Dead finally saw Daryl and Merle Dixon reunited shortly before the closing credits. It’s almost like the producers deliberately left fans wanting more!!! (Of course, as Walking Dead exec producer Robert Kirkman told yours truly, that was indeed their dastardly plan all along).
The Parents Television Council has finally discovered The Walking Dead.
The oft-outraged and oft-mocked parents organization is taking on TV’s top-rated drama for its “inaccurate” age-appropriateness rating of TV-14.
Some of you doubtless have no idea what that refers to. Ad-supported TV shows have mandatory content ratings that are, lets face it, widely ignored. But not by the PTC.
PTC president Tim Winter said in a statement: “Throughout its run, the AMC program The Walking Dead has featured some of the most graphic and brutally intense violence and gore imaginable.”
Yeah it has!
Continues Winter: READ FULL STORY
Like a good midseason finale, the final pre-hiatus episode of The Walking Dead threw several balls into the air and just left them hanging, leaving you to writhe in anguish for a few months. Would the reunited Dixon brothers fight their way out of Woodbury? Could the Grimes Gang turn their prison home into a fortress, to hold off the Governor’s army? And seriously, what’s up with Milton? Well, AMC has just released three videos which offer tantalizing glimpses of the new season. First up: The cast talks about what’s in store for their characters in the season’s final eight episodes. Key revelations: The Governor “literally doesn’t care anymore,” Glenn is in a vengeful mood, and everyone has British accents in real life.
Few things are more satisfying than realizing that a TV show you love is getting better. Evolution and experimentation is built into the long-form television medium. Sometimes that experimentation goes horribly wrong, and some course-correction is required. Other times, a show that’s always been good starts firing on all cylinders at once. Here are our five picks for the Most Improved TV Shows of 2012.
'Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's midseason finale and the surprise return of [SPOILER]
While tonight’s midseason finale of AMC’s drama The Walking Dead technically belonged in the zombie genre there were times when it looked more like an old school war movie as Rick and his fellow prison-dwellers made their move on Woodbury. “I was there for the filming of this episode,” says Walking Dead executive producer and Walking Dead comic writer Robert Kirkman. “We filmed what I like to call ‘the machine gun scenes’ from two to four in the morning. We got some complaints.”
'The Walking Dead': Showrunner Glen Mazzara breaks down the shocking midseason finale and tells you what to expect next
It was a fall finale filled with intense action, a wildly anticipated reunion, the introduction of a new key player, the killing of humans and zombies alike, and a super secret blast from the past. (SPOILER ALERT: If you have yet to watch Sunday’s Walking Dead episode, I suggest you stop right now before all is revealed. Seriously. Look away!) So we went to the man in charge, Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara, for answers to all the burning questions. In the following Q&A, Mazzara discusses the reason for adding comic book favorite Tyreese into the mix now, how they got Jon Bernthal to return as Shane, the shocking — and blinding! — fight between Michonne and the Governor, as well as the long-awaited reunion between Merle and Daryl Dixon. Plus, he tells us what to expect when the show picks back up again in February. It’s as essential download of information for any Walking Dead fan. (Click through all three pages to read the entire interview and see additional photos.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Wow, I seriously don’t even know where to begin with everything that went down in this midseason finale. This had to be the most balls-to-the-wall hour of action you’ve ever done. I felt like I didn’t have a second to breath this entire episode.
GLEN MAZZARA: You’re not supposed to. I feel last week’s episode really amped it up and this is what we’ve been waiting for, these groups getting together. Remember how when Rick and company were on that farm they were the plague to Hershel and his family? Now, here’s Rick and the group acting as attackers to the town of Woodbury. They’re terrorists, as the Governor calls them. They just come in and, rightfully so, shoot it up to get Glenn and Maggie out. But to the town of Woodbury, they feel like they’re under attack. So it was kind of nice to muddy the line between who’s the good guy and who’s the bad guy because Rick and his crew definitely seem like the bad guys to the town of Woodbury. READ FULL STORY
And now the battle is joined. Rick Grimes and Co. infiltrated Woodbury in Sunday’s midseason Walking Dead finale and if you don’t want to know any more about it, then I suggest you stop reading right now. (SPOILER ALERT: Look away immediately unless you have already watched Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead.) Not only did the two sides battle it out, but the episode also saw the return of Jon Bernthal as Shane, who appeared as a figment of Rick’s imagination during the fight. We talked to the man who plays Rick, Andrew Lincoln, about finally paying a visit to the town he and costar Norman Reedus had derisively dubbed “Woodbury 90210″, as well as his off-screen taunting with the man who plays the Governor, David Morrissey, and the super secret return of Shane.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, you finally got to pay a visit to Woodbury 90210. What did you think of the place?
ANDREW LINCOLN: I hate it there. [laughs] I just can’t bear it. It’s so funny because every time Norman and I have to shoot around there, we just go, “Ugh, I hate it!” I love the prison. I love the dirt. I love the fact that we never clean up. I don’t know, there’s just something not right about that place. It was great shooting the hell out of it! We took it to them. There weren’t as many of us but we took the battle directly to them. But it was weird because David and I – we still haven’t quite met yet in the season. He’s been texting me all the time when I’m not there, just saying certain things. And that’s all we’ve been doing is just texting derogatory things like “Get out of my prison!…Leave my friends alone…Get your creepy British hands off one of my friends.” It’s all that kind of stuff going on. So it’s good fun. READ FULL STORY
