The six-episode first season — written, produced and directed by three-time Academy Award-nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) and executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens, Armageddon, The Incredible Hulk) — follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, traveling in search of a safe and secure home after a zombie apocalypse.
When we last saw Rick and his small group of Alexandria survivors, they had covered themselves in zombie guts and were trying to make a break from the overtaken community. Of course, we don't know where exactly they are heading to, but it's been rumored that they will visit the Hilltop Colony, which was first mentioned in Issue 92 of the Robert Kirkman comics, just eight issues before the introduction of the iconic villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who will first be seen in the season finale later this year. When Negan first appeared in the comics, he killed Glenn with his baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, so we'll have to wait and see if the show follows this comic book story line or not. Are you excited to see Maggie and Glenn's reunion when The Walking Dead returns?Read More
This Sunday, the small screen will be dominated by the Super Bowl, but next weekend, the undead will take over when The Walking Dead returns with the back half of Season 6. To get fans ready for the midseason premiere, AMC has released a new preview, where several cast and crew members tease what's next for Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest of his survivors in Alexandria. What's most intriguing is Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) reveals that there will be another major death before Season 6 comes to a close.
This falls in line with an interview Norman Reedus gave last month, where he hinted at a "big fight." We also hear from Glenn (Steven Yeun), who almost died in the first half of the season, along with Melissa Suzanne McBride (Carol), Ross Marquand (Aaron), Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha), Christian Serratos (Rosita), Danai Gurira and Andrew Lincoln, who teases that the show is getting to a part in Robert Kirkman's comic book that he's been looking forward to. Of course, as many fans know, he's referring to the emergence of the villain Negan.Read More
On Valentine's Day, The Walking Dead will return for the back-half of Season 6. And true to form, a lot of our favorite characters will not be making it to the already announced Season 7. It's one thing that sets this zombie apocalypse drama apart from other hit shows. Someone always has to die. And it's usually someone audiences have grown very fond of. Have you ever wondered why character deaths are so important to the growth and continuation of the show?
Knowing that no character, except for Melissa Suzanne McBride's Carol, is ever safe brings a sense of dread to each episode that no other show has been able to achieve. And over the course of the past 6 years we've seen plenty of actors come and go. Anyone can die at anytime, except Carol, who has been named by the show's producers as the only survivor who will outlast the series. Character deaths are integral to the forward momentum of the story, no matter how much it hurts fans. According to comic book creator Robert Kirkman, it is one essential element that will never change.Read More
While we don't know for certain, it seems unlikely that the "motherf---er" everyone clashes with is the long-awaited villain Negan. We reported in November that Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been cast as Negan, who will be introduced in The Walking Dead Season 6 finale, before becoming a series regular in The Walking Dead Season 7. Negan's arrival may be a sign that a beloved character will be killed off soon, but we'll have to wait until the Season 6 finale to find out for sure. Negan is introduced in the 100th issue of The Walking Dead, where he and his group took Rick and the Alexandrians by surprise, before choosing a random person to kill, Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun).
It also seems unlikely that the person causing this fight is Glenn himself. After we saw him fall into a zombie herd with Nicholas (Michael Traynor) in this season's third episode Thank You. For several episodes, Glenn's fate was unclear, but we found out a few weeks later in Heads Up that he managed to escape alive, as he began his journey back to Alexandria with Enid (Katelyn Nacon). Towards the end of November's mid-season finale, Start To Finish, we saw both Glenn and Enid scaling a tree near one of the Alexandria walls, although it's possible that Glenn doesn't reunite with Maggie and the rest of the group right away.Read More
Unfortunately, this banner doesn't give us our first look at the long-awaited character Negan, who was teased at the very end of the fall finale, Start to Finish. Back in November, the series cast Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan, who will first appear as a guest star in the The Walking Dead Season 6 finale. He will then become a series regular in The Walking Dead Season 7.
Many fans are wondering if the arrival of Negan will mark the end of one of the show's beloved characters, Glenn (Steven Yeun). Negan has remained the primary villain in the comics ever since he killed Glenn with his iconic weapon, a baseball bat named Lucille, which is wrapped in barbed wire. In the comic books, Negan is the leader of a violent group known as the Saviors, who use force to take over survivor communities. And they will invade Alexandria in the Season 6 finale.Read More
