Well, we’re not sure what’s going to land and stick around, but we’ve come up with a list of 16 Most Anticipated New Fall 2015 TV Shows, ranging from the return of The Muppets on ABC to the small screen versions of movies like Limitless on CBS to cable offerings such as Ash vs the Evil Dead and even a couple new Netflix shows.

Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin have been shooting the pilot for their TV series adaptation of the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic book series Preacher, and the show hits AMC in May… or, well, sometime in 2016.
Which means that, yes, AMC has seemingly formally ordered Preacher to series. To celebrate that distant arrival, Rogen shared the first Preacher poster, which echoes the art above, and you can see it after the fold below. Read More »
Easily one of the coolest things about The Walking Dead, besides Daryl Dixon, is the extraordinary make-up effects used to make the zombies look that much more horrifying. The AMC series has the best make-up effects you’ll see on television, and it even rivals some work being done on the big screen, despite having a lower TV budget at its disposal.
However, when it comes to showing the continued decay of zombie bodies as time goes on, there’s only so much that make-up can do to make it look like a real body is falling apart. And that’s why we’ll see some The Walking Dead zombie visual effects being used in conjunction with the practical make-up effects. Read More »
We’ve heard over and over that the characters from The Walking Dead won’t cross over with those in spin-off/prequel show Fear the Walking Dead. But there is something happening with the timelines of the two shows, and now we have word of a new intersection between the series.
A special web series will take place during the Fear timeline — that is, in the earliest days of the walker outbreak. But it will be a little more walker-centric, as the series takes place on an airplane as walkers attack passengers. Read More »
AMC premieres the new Walking Dead spinoff show Fear the Walking Dead this weekend. Set at the beginning of the zombie outbreak in Los Angeles, Fear centers on two families, the Clarks and the Manawas. Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) has moved in with Madison Clark (Kim Dickens), and their respective kids don’t get along, so the zombies are seemingly the least of their problems.
The cast and producers of Fear the Walking Dead gave a panel for the Television Critics Association last month. During the panel, show runner Dave Erickson answered common questions about the series. Fear won’t catch up to Rick waking up from his coma for at least two seasons, for example. And no, cast members from the Georgia-set Walking Dead won’t show up in Fear.
After the panel, I got some one on one time with Erickson to find out some of what we will see on Fear the Walking Dead. Read More »

There’s no footage from the actual show used, but it’s a pretty cool teaser showing a time lapse of the zombie outbreak from a distance as it wreaks havoc on Los Angeles. Parts of the city begin losing power and going up in flames. The City of Angels clearly isn’t safe anymore.

Better Call Saul surprised a lot of people in 2014. How could a spin-off prequel show featuring a side character from a TV show, even one as excellent as Breaking Bad, tell a viable story? Creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, with Bob Odenkirk to play Jimmy McGill, showed everyone how to do it, and Better Call Saul became a hit with audiences and critics alike, scoring seven Primetime Emmy Awards nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series.
The producers are bringing the show to AMC’s panels at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, and we’ll likely have more news from that later today. For now we’ve got two Better Call Saul S2 first-look photos (one featuring creators Gilligan and Gould) taken from the set of the show as it films in Albuquerque, NM. Read More »
