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.

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

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

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.

While we won’t see any new episodes of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead until October, if you tuned into the network over the Independence Day weekend, you probably got your fill of walkers and indecision, as they marathoned the entire series. Those of you watching also got your first look at season five, which is currently filming, but has been under much tighter security than previous years. Don’t worry if were too busy blowing shit up and burning meat to tune in, because now we have what you’re looking for.

Be warned, there are some SPOILERS for those of you who haven’t finished season four. But honestly, if you’re that concerned, you probably should have found a way to watch those episodes in the more than three months since it wrapped up.

The Walking Dead Takes You Behind The Scenes Of Season Five

fb share tweet share

AMC’s hugely popular zombie drama The Walking Dead is deep into production of its fifth season. In previous years, there has been a gap in the narrative between when one season ends and the next begins, but given the cliffhanger nature of the season four finale, that isn’t a legitimate option. Consequently, there hasn’t been as much news coming from the Georgia-based set as usual, but this weekend the network will treat fans to their first look at the upcoming episodes. As a taste of what’s to come, there are two new behind-the-scenes videos for you to check out, as well as some words from showrunner Scott Gimple about what season five, and beyond, might look like, and even a few tidbits about the still-in-development spinoff series.

The first video shows off the key members of the cast and crew talking about the premiere episode of the upcoming season, and they’re like kids on the first day of school, but nerdy kids, the ones who actually like being in the classroom. Sure it’s their job to hype the show they’re working on, but everyone does appear to be hyped up for the new season, even calling it this one specific installment the most ambitious first episode they’ve ever tackled.

Aubrey Plaza Curbs Hunger Pains In Zombie Comedy Life After Beth’s Trailer And Posters

Zombie movies used to reside strictly within the horror genre, and then Dan O’Bannon came along and revealed the comedic side of the genre with Return of the Living Dead. With Warm Bodies came the “romantic zombie comedy,” a microtrend that is being pushed forward with rampant glee by Jeff Baena in his directorial debut, Life After Beth. We now have our first good look at the film through two generic posters and a surprisingly enjoyable trailer, seen above.

I’m glad I’m married so that I don’t have to worry about random girlfriends turning into people-eating monsters. (Possibly not the only reason.) In Life After Beth, Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) plays Zach, whose true love Beth (Parks & Rec‘s Aubrey Plaza) suddenly dies, leaving him to mope and sulk to his broken heart’s content. That is, until he discovers Beth’s grave has been desecrated and that her parents are hiding something. As you can imagine, that “something” is Beth herself, who has been miraculously revived in some way. At first, things are fine and dandy, as the couple goes back to doing the things they used to, with Zach poking fun at Beth about having zombie tendencies.
