Before The Walking Dead shambles into Comic-Con tomorrow with a full trailer, AMC has debuted the first official teaser for Season 9. The brief sneak peek offers a look at the various communities attempting to rebuild in the wake of Negan’s terror, while Danai Gurira’s Michonne talks to Lauren Cohan’s Maggie about setting new rules for how they should treat one another. Should go over well!
The Walking Dead will not be devoid of Maggie in Season 9. Star Lauren Cohan confirms AMC worked out a deal for her return, though her character may still leave the series in light of Cohan’s new project.
The Walking Dead and its Fear-ful prequel remain about a decade and continent apart, but a link between the pair has finally been found. Months after reports of a crossover, The Walking Dead confirms Lennie James’ Morgan will rejoin the franchise in a crossover role on Season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead willfully steered itself into some Game of Thrones-style set shenanigans, knowing that each and every actor sighting would set off a frenzy of speculation as to which cast member will end up on the other end of Negan’s bat, come Season 7. We might be able to cross off Daryl and Glenn, thanks to some off-set Georgia commotion, but let’s investigate, shall we?
The Walking Dead has borrowed somewhat more liberally from its source material than adaptations like Game of Thrones, though there always remains a possibility of the AMC drama catching up to, even overtaking Robert Kirkman’s work. The live-action Walking Dead has covered roughly 2/3 of the comics over six seasons, so is Kirkman worried about catching up?
The Walking Dead Season 7 has already begun production, kicking off a new round of fan investigation to fill the void of Game of Thrones‘’ latest twist, and giving producers one hell of a challenge to keep Negan’s victim under wraps. That said, creator Robert Kirkman isn’t done defending the controversial cliffhanger, likening it to the best episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and wanting fans to hope, not grieve.
The Walking Dead has some immediate mysteries to answer by the time Season 7 premieres in the fall, but that won’t stop the AMC horror smash from opening up a whole new world beyond. Following a quick tease and an apparent leak, The Walking Dead has now officially begun casting the role of Ezekiel, a fan-favorite and major new ally for #TeamRick.
Every Walking Dead fan well knows by now that next week’s 90-minute finale will finally introduce us the the “Negan” teased all season, and he isn’t likely to be happy with Rick or his friends. Now, AMC releases a first official teaser photo of the character, as well as his prized possession, “Lucille.”
Were The Walking Dead not ubiquitous enough already, nor California already a zombified hellscape, Universal Studios Hollywood wants to do its part. Having previously featured The Walking Dead exhibits as a Halloween attraction, the zombie smash will now infect Hollywood fulltime.
The fine folk behind Honest Trailers have already taken aim at The Walking Dead once before, but if AMC plans to keep the horror-smash running indefinitely, why shouldn’t its parodies? Saddle up for another zombie evisceration, as Seasons 4 through 6 get the Honest treatment for destroying even more sanctuaries, aging CORAL five years, and insisting on Talking Dead.
