With ratings that continually rival even the network juggernauts like The Big Bang Theory, it was only a matter of time before AMC announced a spinoff of its zombie series The Walking Dead.  That’s just what happened a few months ago, when the network unveiled plans to develop a “companion series” that will follow an entirely new group of characters in the same zombie-infested universe that continues to plague Sad Rick, Maybe-Psychopath Carl, and the rest of the Georgia-based gang.  Comics creator and TWD producer Robert Kirkman is executive producing the companion series alongside fellow Walking Dead producers Gale Anne Hurd and Dave Alpert, but beyond a 2015 premiere date details have been scarce.

Now a new report claims to have inside info on the possible premise of the new Walking Dead series, which may actually take place before the events of the current show.  Read on after the jump.

AMC Developing “Companion Series” to THE WALKING DEAD; Aiming for 2015 Premiere

The Walking Dead is one of AMC’s biggest hits, and once Mad Men and Breaking Bad finish their runs within the next year, it will be the network’s marquee title.  Since new concepts are risky, AMC is going to as close to a sure-fire bet as they can get with another Walking Dead (in addition to the “Better Call Saul”/Breaking Bad prequel series).  Variety reports that author Robert Kirkman and executive producers Gale Anne Hurd and Dave Alpert are working on a “companion series” (is this what we’re calling spin-offs now?) that would air in 2015.  The new series would feature a new story and new characters, but presumably the same ‘ol rascally zombies.  Kirkman added that the new series would be completely from scratch and not from his comic books.

The fourth season of The Walking Dead will premiere on October 13th.

AMC has released a new production video for the upcoming fourth season of the immensely popular drama series The Walking Dead.  The clip goes behind-the-scenes of the filming of the new season’s first episode, as we see nearly all of the cast members talk on camera about where we find their characters when the show returns.  Andrew Lincoln confirms there will be another time jump, as we will have skipped over winter and gone right to summer once again—a necessity borne out of the fact that the show shoots in Atlanta during the summertime.  The group is working to make the prison more of a home, and in keeping with that effort Rick takes up farming.

One of the most popular shows on all of television returns this fall with the fourth season of AMC’s The Walking Dead, and fans are eager to see where the series picks up following some pretty bleak events towards the end of last season. We’ve seen a few teaser images of season four previously, but little has been revealed about where the story might go in the new episodes. However, during today’s The Walking Dead panel in Hall H, we got a much better idea of what to expect from the show’s producers and cast, and we also got a look at an extended trailer for season four. The cast discussed how frequently people die on the show, where we find Rick, The Governor, Glen, and more in the new season, how last season’s events have impacted the group, and more.

Additionally, it was revealed that season four of The Walking Dead will premiere on AMC on October 13th. Hit the jump to read my full recap of the Comic-Con panel and to see the newly-released trailer.

New Comic-Con Poster for THE WALKING DEAD Season 4; Panelists Announced [UPDATED]

by     Posted 289 days ago

One of the best Hall H panels I saw at Comic-Con last year was for The Walking Dead.  While the show isn’t without its problems, the series’ Hall H panel was filled with intelligent, candid, and often humorous answers from the cast (it helps when Chris Hardwick is your moderator) and they also debuted the stellar first trailer for season three.  The AMC series is returning once again to SDCC this year, and the network has released a new Comic-Con banner for the upcoming fourth season of the show.  The new season will see yet another new showrunner take the reins, and I’m interested to see how the series will move forward given the events of last season’s finale.  For now, though, I’m hopeful that this year’s Comic-Con panel will prove to be just as entertaining as last year’s.

Hit the jump to take a look at the poster, and check back here for our full recap of the show’s panel during Comic-Con.  SDCC 2013 runs from July 18th – 21st.  The Walking Dead season four will premiere on AMC this October. [Update: AMC has revealed which castmembers will be taking part in the Comic-Con panel on Friday, July 19th. More after the jump.]

the-walking-dead-season-3-slice

The third season of AMC’s The Walking Dead has now come to its conclusion.  We started this season by watching as Rick and his followers fought their way into an infested prison which they promptly turned into a secure place to start a new life.  The prison was a central focus in the season finale but it has turned into a very different place.  We also lost a couple of characters in this last hour, though after suffering a season’s worth of emotional turmoil, it’s the survivors might actually be the worst off.

Starring Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Laurie Holden, Danai Gurira, Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Dallas Roberts, Emily KinneyChad Coleman and Lew Temple, AMC’s The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9.  Hit the jump for my review of the season three finale, “Welcome to the Tombs.”

The penultimate episode of season three of AMC’s The Walking Dead is now behind us.  Along the way we’ve had to say goodbye to some near and dear characters and tonight’s episode was no different.  While it was still just a precursor to the all out war that is expected on next week’s finale, it still packed an emotional punch that managed to carry the story forward ever so slightly.  Blood has been spilt on both sides of the conflict; no one is safe, no one is certain to survive.

Starring Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Laurie Holden, Danai Gurira, Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Dallas Roberts, Emily KinneyChad Coleman and Lew Temple, AMC’s The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9.  Hit the jump for my review of “This Sorrowful Life.”

Only two more episodes in season three of AMC’s The Walking Dead.  Tonight’s story felt like a retro horror movie at times but for the most part was a chore to slog through.  For fans who love Andrea (or just love to hate her), this episode was for you as the main crux of the plot centered on her and the mobilization of the forces at Woodbury.

Starring Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Laurie Holden, Danai Gurira, Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Dallas Roberts, Emily KinneyChad Coleman and Lew Temple, AMC’s The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9.  Hit the jump for my review of “Prey.”
