The Walking Dead Fights Back In This Tense New Teaser

fb share tweet share

Over the years The Walking Dead and I have had a troubled relationship. AMC’s hit zombie drama has some things that I legitimately enjoy and appreciate, but then there are aspects that drive me absolutely bonkers (both as a long time fan of Robert Kirkman’s comics and as someone easily frustrated by bad television). To call the massively popular series (a popularity that still baffles me) uneven is an understatement, but even I, with my overwhelming skepticism, find myself getting increasingly excited for the upcoming season 5. My feelings are primarily based on the fact that the last half of season 4 is the best the show has ever been, but badass new promos like this one definitely don’t hurt matters any.

You see quick flashes of the core group of characters stuck intense, harrowing situations, some involve walkers, some do not, but beyond that, you this video drives home that the beginning of season 5 is going to see some serious human conflict. When Rick (Andrew Lincoln) adopts his serious man voice, telling his compatriots that, if they come across one of these people, to kill them, because they’ll certainly kill you, we assume that he’s referring to the people currently holding them prisoner at Terminus. And the way they left things last year, you know that it’s going to get brutal and bloody very quick.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Photos Show Off Blood And Insanity

the-walking-dead-season-5-ten-new-photos9You may not have known this since they’re keeping it a secret, but AMC, that network that had Breaking Bad, also has a zombie show. It’s called The Walking Dead and it’s getting ready to come back for a season 5. Shocking, I know, it’s not like there’s been a ton of teasers, posters, or photos indicating that such a thing was happening, right? That’s why this new gallery of stills from the series came as such a surprise, but here they are.

Okay, I’m done trying to be funny, I promise. (An ex once told me, “oh dear, you’re just not funny,” and all of my friends and roommates apparently agreed. I thought I was hilarious, but I was wrong.) But The Walking Dead is coming back (it’s not funny either, so we’re kindred spirits in that regard), and there are even more photos, this time from AMC and Spoiler TV.

The Walking Dead Photos Show Grim Portraits Of Rick And Company

The Walking DeadAMC is once again getting ready to unleash a swarm of rotting corpses on your TVs in the form of their hit zombie drama The Walking Dead. The biggest show on television, when it returns for season 5 in mid-October, that doesn’t show any signs of abating or even slowing down at all. The network has now released a handful of new still images that show off most of the main cast of characters.

The last half of season 4 of The Walking Dead not only delivered the best episodes of the series to date, and the strongest narrative arc we’ve seen, but it ended on one hell of a cliffhanger. While there is usually a gap of time between the events of one season to the beginning of the next, that’s not going to be possible this time around, and we’ve been told that they plan to “hit the ground running” in season 5. Hopefully they’ll be able to maintain the momentum the built up, not just with the story itself, but when it comes to character growth.

The Walking Dead Is Working To Bring Us The Nastiest Villain Yet

fb share tweet share

the walking deadAMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is gradually working its way back to our TV screens for season 5, so what better time to look to the future of the massively popular horror show? The show loosely follows the path laid out by Robert Kirkman’s comics—at least in terms of big plot points like Hershel’s farm, the prison, the Governor, though they all appear with enough tweaks and changes so they’re not carbon copies of one another. So those of us who know the story are constantly waiting to see our favorite bits and pieces, and we now have news about one of the most notorious villains Kirkman has ever dreamed up.

Aside from the Governor, the biggest single villain Rick Grimes and his group of survivors is Negan, and it’s starting to sound like we could see him sooner rather later. Executive producer Dave Alpert recently gave an interview, oddly enough to AMC, the show’s host network. He talked about a great number of things, like his favorite moments, working with Kirkman on the sci-fi movie Air (which stars The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus), and various things Kirkman added to the show that he wishes, in retrospect, could have been in the comics.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer Never Lets Its Guard Down

fb share tweet share

AMC’s The Walking Dead is shuffling towards season 5, which is sure to be another year of monster ratings. Though we’ve been hot and cold on the show over the years, the last half of season 4 was the best the hit zombie drama has ever been, and more than enough to get us as excited than we’ve been about the series since before it premiered in 2010. Just in cast you forgot, or let the show slip from the forefront of your mind, they’re back with a new trailer to remind you.

We’ve had a bunch of quick, ten or eleven second teasers lately that are more tone than content, and this video stitches some of those together, with a bit of new footage thrown in to keep things interesting. If nothing else, this is like a full minute of zombies blowing up (this explosion already looks better than the last one, in the final episode of season 1, which honestly wasn’t so hot) and sloganeering for zombie apocalypse survival. Seriously, can’t you imagine phrases like “Hunt or be hunted,” “It’s not over until we’re dead,” or “Never let your guard down” spray-painted on a bunker wall somewhere, like a kind of post-apocalyptic motivational poster (I can’t help but think of the kitten dangling from a branch with “Hang on” written over it).

The Walking Dead: Daryl And Carol Reunite And More Chaos In New Season 5 Photos

fb share tweet share

The Walking DeadAMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is gradually shuffling towards the October 12 premiere of season 5. Given the massive number of viewers the show raked in last year, the debut is sure to be a ratings juggernaut—we’ve also been promised that they hit the ground running after the cliffhanger at the end of season 4 and that the first scene shocked even the stars when they saw it edited together the first time. Just in case you didn’t already have this day circled on your calendar (do people still do that?), the network released a gallery of 20 new images from the upcoming episodes.

Daryl’s (Norman Reedus) sexuality has been a hot topic of discussion lately, with rumors that he might be gay making the rounds. That has neither been confirmed nor denied, though producers did confirm that there is a gay character, Daryl or not, on the way before too long. One of the reasons for this speculation about the younger Dixon brother is his relationship with Carol (Melissa McBride), who obviously seems to fancy him. Apparently not hooking up with any woman he can makes him gay, or, you know, they could just be friends, or maybe even he was giving her time to come to terms with the fact that she lost both her husband (even though he was an abusive asshole) and her daughter.
