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.
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
During the Hall H panel for The Walking Dead at Comic-Con earlier this month, it was revealed that Emmy winner Merritt Wever and Ethan Embry have signed on, but it wasn't revealed who they are playing, and if their characters are from the original comic books by Robert Kirkman. Today, Entertainment Weekly has the first photos of these new cast members, revealing that Merritt Wever is playing Dr. Denise Cloyd from the comics, while Ethan Embry is portraying Carter. We also have a new photo of Corey Antonio Hawkins' Heath, who was introduced last month.
A few weeks before Comic-Con, we reported that the show is casting for two more new characters, the married couple Kirk and Hilda. There are no characters in the comics named Kirk and Hilda, but fans have already speculated that this couple could be Dwight and Sherry. While that may be possible, the couple do not surface in the comics until after the villainous Negan is introduced, which hasn't happened on the show yet.Read More
The Walking Dead Season 6 won't debut until later this fall. And even though the companion series Fear the Walking Dead is set to debut in less than one month, many fans are finding the wait excruiating. A never-before-seen moment from The Walking Dead Season 5 has arrived, which will be included in the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD set, which releases on August 25th. And it features two fan favorite characters on the verge of a big disagreement.
This deleted scene comes from the second half of Season 5, in the highly regarded episode Forget. As Rick and the others continue to acclimate to their new surroundings, they consider a return to normalcy. But the boarded-off suburban berg known as Alexandria is not all it appears to be on the suffice. Still feeling out his surroundings, Rick has agreed to turn over his weapons to the town's leadership as an act of peace. But Michonne doesn't agree with Rick's decision. She questions his motives, at odds with his actions. It's a nice scene that helps build the tension between the two friends, which will slowly start to explode as The Walking Dead Season 5 reaches its epic and life-altering finale episode.Read More
Straight from Hall H of the San Diego Convention Center, AMC revealed the first Season 6 trailer for The Walking Dead, while announcing that the new season will premiere Sunday, October 11 during the show's annual Comic-Con panel. As you may recall, at the end of Season 5, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) was finally reunited with Morgan (Lennie James), just as he killed Reg (Steve Coulter), the husband of Alexandria leader Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh). The trailer revealed that there is a growing group in Alexandria who are concerned about Rick's methods, and the cast and crew shed new light on this season as well during the panel.
It was also announced at the panel that Merritt Wever has been cast as a character from the Walking Dead comics, but they wouldn't reveal her identity quite yet. You can take a look at all of the tweets from the show's official Twitter feed, and stay tuned for more details on this hit series. Are you excited for Season 6 after this panel?
