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.
Last night, the first half of The Walking Dead Season 6 came to a close with the midseason finale Start to Finish, the beloved show's final episode in 2015. During a new episode of Into the Badlands and later on the after-show Talking Dead, AMC aired a two-minute prologue for the next chapter of The Walking Dead, where fans heard the first mention of an iconic villain from Robert Kirkman's comics, Negan. Unfortunately, we don't actually see Negan in this footage, but we do get our first look at a few members from his group, known in the comics as The Saviors.
We reported earlier this month 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).Read More
With the midesason finale of The Walking Dead Season 6, Start to Finish, airing next week, AMC has released a new preview and a clip for the final episode of 2015. If you didn't catch last night's episode of The Walking Dead, Head's Up, there will be a massive SPOILER in the clip, so be sure to watch at your own risk. If that wasn't enough, we also have new photos from both Head's Up and Start to Finish. This is your last chance to avoid any spoilers, so stop reading now if you didn't watch last night's episode.
At the end of Head's Up, a large tower just outside the Alexandria walls, came tumbling down, breaching the wall and giving the zombies a way in to this once-peaceful town. The trailer for Start to Finish reveals numerous zombies flooding into Alexandria, as Rick (Andrew Lincoln) tries to lead the Alexandrians to safety. With the walls breached, will Rick and the rest of his crew be forced to leave their new home? We'll find out in just a few short days.Read More
With the midseason finale of The Walking Dead just two weeks away, AMC has released a new clip and photos from next week's episode, Head's Up, airing Sunday, November 22 at 9 PM ET. The clip features Rick (Andrew Lincoln) examining the wall that surrounds Alexandria, when he spots blood trickling in from a small hole. Rick also has a brief encounter with Morgan, saying that they need to talk soon, as Morgan practices his martial arts moves. Could this small hole in the Alexandria wall tease that it may be coming down soon? Be warned, there will be SPOILERS about last night's episode, so read on at your own risk.
Last night's The Walking Dead episode, Always Accountable, featured Daryl (Norman Reedus) lost in the woods on his own, when he comes across two young females, before their male companion knocks him out from behind. Always Accountable shows one of the few times that Daryl hasn't had the upper hand in encounters with others, as this mysterious trio ends up stealing his motorcycle and his crossbow before taking off for parts unknown. It isn't known if we will see these two again, but Daryl promised that they will be sorry for what they did.Read More
It finally happened! The Walking Dead has cast Negan. The iconic villain role will be played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan 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. The character was first introduced in Robert Kirkman's comic book upon which the AMC series is based. He has a long and storied history in the pages of the comic. And he quickly became a fan favorite, one that audiences have been clamoring for ever since the show was launched in 2010.
The casting search for Negan was an extensive one. And last week, it was believed that Garret Dillahunt had walked away with the role. Though, that actor may still be involved with the series somehow. Negan will be the show's next major villain. And he is known as an F-bomb dropping, dastardly presence. Warning. There will be SPOILERS throughout the rest of this series. He will first be introduced in The Walking Dead Season 6 finale to be directed by producer and KNB Effects guru Greg Nicotero.Read More
With just three more episodes left in the first half of The Walking Dead Season 6, AMC has released a new clip from next week's episode, Always Accountable, airing Sunday, November 15 at 9 PM ET on AMC. This clip features Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) on his own, pushing his motorcycle through the woods, after his bike apparently ran out of gas. He tries to contact Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) on his walkie-talkie, but no one responds, as Daryl notices the charred skeleton of a walker below him.
Warning: SPOILER ahead! Last night's episode, Now, saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) finally returning to Alexandria, just ahead of the zombie herd that is closing in on the peaceful town. In this clip from next week's episode, it isn't exactly clear how far from Alexandria Daryl is, or if he will make it back before the zombie herd closes in. After the shocking death of Glenn (Steven Yeun) just a few weeks ago, his girlfriend Maggie (Lauren Cohan) dropped a surprise of her own in Now, that she is pregnant.Read More
