While viewers watched Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) group battle against The Governor (David Morrissey) all last season on The Walking Dead, audiences are now wondering where the antagonist has disappeared to this year.  The producers are well aware of that fact and have commented on the villainous character’s current whereabouts, how the fallout from season three has changed him, and if and when we can expect to see him again.  Hit the jump to find out more from Robert Kirkman and Scott M.

THE WALKING DEAD Renewed for Season Five

In a surprise to absolutely no one, AMC has renewed the ratings juggernaut The Walking Dead for a fifth season.  This year’s season four premiere drew an insane 16.1 million viewers, making the show not just a force of nature on cable TV but also a serious threat to network TV; we’re talking Big Bang Theory numbers, people.  The show has continually risen in the ratings since its debut in 2010, and it appears that no amount of showrunner changes or character deaths will deter viewers from watching.  Creatively, the current fourth season has been a mostly positive mixed bag as the series’ focus has turned to various tensions within the ever-dwindling group of survivors (catch up with Dave’s recaps here).

Hit the jump for more on the renewal, including some behind-the-scenes news for next year.

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 292 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.]
