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.
Yesterday, Entertainment Weekly revealed six collectible covers for this week's print issue featuring some of your favorite characters from AMC's hit series The Walking Dead. With the show returning to kick off the back half of Season 6 on Sunday, Entertainment Weekly also brought back 11 characters who were killed off throughout the show's six-season run, who all reunited for one epic, yet creepy, photo. If that wasn't enough, the publication also spoke to Steven Yeun regarding the controversy surrounding his character Glenn.
First off, this new photo features Madison Lintz (Sophia), Kyla Kenedy (Mika), Jeryl Prescott (Jacqui), Brighton Sharbino (Lizzie), Chad Coleman (Tyreese), Tyler James Williams (Noah), David Morrissey (The Governor), Emily Kinney (Beth), IronE Singleton (T-Dog), Larry Gilliard Jr. (Bob) and Robin Lord Taylor (Sam). These actors came together back in June, when they all appeared at the Walker Stalker Convention in Orlando, with the photo featuring all of them wearing black, with their eyes closed, mourning their characters. EW will have interviews with these actors tomorrow, so be sure to check back for more on their journey through The Walking Dead.Read More
At the very end of The Walking Dead's fall finale, Start to Finish, fans were introduced to a group known as The Saviors, who inform Daryl (Norman Reedus), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) that all of their property belongs to the villainous Negan. Just a few weeks prior, we learned that Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been cast as this iconic villain, although he won't actually surface until the Season 6 finale, before becoming a series regular in Season 7. With just a few days remaining until the show returns with the midseason premiere No Way Out, the AMC Twitter feed released a clip with the first four minutes of this first new episode, with the show picking up exactly where it left off.
We still don't know exactly who these Saviors are quite yet, since the leader of this group doesn't identify himself in this four-minute clip. Still, Daryl, Sasha and Abraham are in quite a bit of a bind, since they're outnumbered and outgunned, and they eventually give up their guns to the mystery man. He also says that the Saviors plan on following Daryl, Sasha and Abraham back to their home, "to see where they hang their hats." While this would normally mean big trouble for the Alexandrians, most of them have already fled, after the walls were breached, so we'll have to wait and see how this will play out.Read More
Fans are still reeling from the first half of this season, where Glenn fell into a zombie herd with Nicholas (Michael Traynor) in this season's third episode Thank You. His fate was left 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 Lauren Cohan teased that Maggie and Glenn won't reunite right away, and when they do, it will be "overshadowed by darkness." Do you think this means Glenn will actually die in the Season 6 finale? We'll find out in eight short weeks, but for now, take a look at the EW magazine covers below.Read More
Now that the Super Bowl is behind us, the big TV event everyone is looking forward to will happen in just six days, the return of The Walking Dead. After a two month hiatus, the show will return with the back half of Season 6 on Valentine's Day, Sunday, February 14 at 9 PM ET on AMC. Earlier today, Spoiler TV uncovered a new piece of international promo art, which teases a huge SPOILER for the episodes ahead. If you want to go into the back half of The Walking Dead Season 6 unspoiled, then read on at your own risk.
The Russian promo art teases a major moment from Robert Kirkman's original comic book, involving Rick Grimes' (Andrew Lincoln) son Carl (Chandler Riggs). Here, we see Chandler Riggs wearing a makeshift eyepatch, resulting from a pivotal scene where Carl is shot in the face, causing him to lose one of his eyes. However, we know for sure that this scene won't happen as it did in the comics.Read More
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
