fb share tweet share

The Walking DeadAMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is going to have a strong presence at San Diego Comic-Con next week, which is pretty standard for the comic book-based series. We expect to see some significant reveals come out of that event, but just because they have big things in the works doesn’t mean that there won’t be anything for fans to gorge themselves on. Four new photos from the upcoming season five have appeared online, and comic creator and series executive producer Robert Kirkman shared some details on the new direction of the show for season five.

There are potential SPOILERS beyond this point. You have been warned.

Telltale Unveils The Walking Dead Episode 4 Trailer And Release Date

fb share tweet share

Though they generally put out fantastic products, Telltale Games is often thought of as the scourge of humanity by gamers who hate the company’s seemingly random release dates. Fans wait months between episodes of games like The Walking Dead and the now-completed first season of The Wolf Among Us, with the announcements usually arriving only a week or two before the episodes hit the Internet. Such is the case once more, as Telltale revealed the full trailer for the fourth episode of The Walking Dead: The Game Season 2, “Amid the Ruins,” and confirmed the installment will be available for download on July 22. Maybe I’m biased here, but it certainly looks like it was worth the wait.

Spoilers ahead!

The Walking Dead Walls Off A Georgia Neighborhood For A Key Season 5 Location

fb share tweet share

The Walking DeadFans of AMC’s hit The Walking Dead may have just received a big hint about the location, and by extension the story, that season five of the zombie drama will explore. Reports from the region surrounding the Georgia-based set say that the production is building a 15-foot high wall as part of a filming location.

Readers of Robert Kirkman’s comic books that serve as the source material for the wildly popular series will have a strong idea of what this means for the show. It’s hard to hear a description of a set that includes tall walls made out of a concrete, or at least a substance designed to look like concrete, and not immediately think of the Alexandria Safe-Zone.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Photo Puts Daryl In A Dangerous Situation

fb share tweet share

The Walking DeadDespite the fact that he doesn’t appear in Robert Kirkman’s comics that serve as the source material for AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead, it didn’t take long for Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) to become a fan favorite on the series. Since the beginning, he’s been the best character on the show, often the lone bright spot when the show bogged down in the tedium of seasons two and three. Fans are also hugely protective of the younger Dixon brother, and as a result of those feelings, the latest still released from the upcoming season five is going to cause some trepidation.

In past years a significant amount of time, at least a few months, usually passes for the between seasons for the characters of The Walking Dead. Due to the cliffhanger nature of the season four ending, that’s not going to be possible this time around. Without giving too much away, the season ends with most of the key people involved in a perilous predicament, one that will have to be dealt with sooner rather than later. This year there has been more security/less news from the Georgia set, though we’re willing to bet there will be substantial reveals at San Diego Comic-Con later this month. They are taking over the massive Hall H for a panel on Friday, July 25.

Cosmos, Futurama, And More Represent Sci-Fi With Primetime Emmy Nominations

fb share tweet share

cosmosAs sci-fi fans, we all know that unless an awards ceremony is specifically centered on science fiction, genre programming doesn’t stand much of a chance against the plethora of mainstream media out there. That said, the nominations for the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards were announced this morning, and science and sci-fi programming actually made a strong appearance, thanks in large part to Fox’s Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey. The biggest story of the announcement was actually what didn’t make the list—they will rue their ignorance of Orphan Black’s dramatic superiority—but that’s for another story. For now, we celebrate.

The Neil deGrasse Tyson-hosted Cosmos was the definite standout, though it obviously didn’t get recognized in the Outstanding Lead Actor category or anything like that. Some of the infotainment series’ more notable and deserving noms were for Outstanding or Documentary Series, Outstanding Cinematography for Nonfiction, and Outstanding Special and Visual Effects, while the show’s art direction, music, main titles, and sound editing were also recognized. With twelve total nominations, it tied with acclaimed narrative series like True Detective and Orange is the New Black. (Breaking Bad earned 16 nominations.)
