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.
Zombie lovers are digging into AMC's new spinoff Fear the Walking Dead, which debuted over the weekend. But that show's arrival also means we're getting closer and closer to the Season 6 premiere of the flagship series The Walking Dead. While we wait for the October 11 premiere, AMC has released two new trailers, one of which features our favorite characters literally emerging from the shadows. Unfortunately, this video doesn't give us a look at any of the new faces fans will meet this season on The Walking Dead. We also get the first clip featuring Michael Cudlitz as Abraham and Sonequa Martin-Green as Sasha as they go for a ride.
In the comics, Scott is a supply runner who is smart, agile and knows the land, but he doesn't have the best run of luck. He is also best friends with Heath, a relationship that is tested in the comics. When we first meet Scott in the comics, he has suffered a broken leg while jumping off of a roof while on a run. Scott is mostly seen laid up recovering from his injuries in the comics, which leads to Heath teaming up with Glenn (Steven Yeun) on supply runs, which we saw in the Comic-Con trailer. It isn't known how many episodes the actor is signed on for, and it isn't known if he will meet the same fate as in the comics.Read More

Yesterday, Entertainment Weekly released the cover of this week's issue, which featured The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), and Melissa Suzanne McBride (Carol Peltier). Unfortunately, these images were for the magazine's photo shoot, and didn't depict any scenes from the upcoming Season 6. If those images weren't enough to get you that Walking Dead fix you so desperately need, then you're in luck, because AMC has released five photos featuring some of the new zombies Rick, Daryl, Carol and the rest of these Alexandria survivors will have to contend with.
AMC revealed the first trailer for The Walking Dead Season 6 during the show's Hall H panel at Comic-Con last month. The footage introduced one of the new characters, Ethan Embry's Carter, who doesn't seem to be a fan of Rick and his violent ways. Norman Reedus teased that this season will feature "a lot of internal conflict" between Rick and his crew. You may recall that, in one Season 5 episode, Rick stated that they would just "take" Alexandria over if the townspeople didn't agree with their methods. We may actually see that happening when Season 6 gets started.Read More
The nation's insatiable appetite for AMC's The Walking Dead will continue to terrify Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort when the most intense moments from Season 5 of the critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning television series take a bite out of Halloween Horror Nights, beginning Friday, September 18, 2015. Attempts to evade the terror of the undead and the inhumane brutality of mankind will be the underlying theme of these mazes as guests navigate authentic three-dimensional recreations of one of television's most talked about shows, The Walking Dead.
Universal's Halloween Horror Nights is the ultimate in extreme Halloween events. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando and Hollywood to become victims of their own horror movie. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are constructed throughout the event, inspired by iconic slasher films, hit horror movies and television series or hauntingly real original stories. Numerous scare zones also infiltrate Halloween Horror Nights, designed to provoke an unrelenting sense of fear and terrorize guests as they navigate the darkness from one frightening maze to another.Read More
Yesterday, fans were introduced to two new characters in Season 6 of The Walking Dead, Merritt Wever's Dr. Denise Cloyd and Ethan Embry's Carter. Today, Entertainment Weekly has revealed the cover of this week's new issue, which features The Walking Dead fan favorites Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) and Melissa Suzanne McBride (Carol Peltier). The cover image also features a clever reference to the delicious cookies Carol baked last season.
In addition to the EW cover, we also have two more photos featuring Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus and Melissa Suzanne McBride. We reported last month that the zombie TV series will also introduce two new characters, a married couple named Kirk and Hilda, but these roles have not been cast at this time. We still have a long ways to go before the Season 6 premiere debuts on Sunday, October 11, so stay tuned for more casting and plot details. In the meantime, check out the EW cover and photos.Read More
