If there’s one shade I associate with AMC’s The Walking Dead, it’s red — as in the color of all that stomach-turning blood and gore. But perhaps that’s only because I haven’t read Robert Kirkman‘s comic, which is illustrated in stark black and white. And starting in February, older episodes of the series will be presented the same way. Get ready to revisit the early days of the zombie apocalypse, only this time without color. More info after the jump.

As we get closer and closer to the Season 2 premiere date, the promos for AMC’s zombie drama The Walking Dead get more and more revealing. With about two and a half weeks to go, a new 90-second trailer has been unveiled which offers the best look yet at the upcoming season.
The zombies are still after Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company, obviously, but just as worrisome is what the survivors are up to when they’re not busy fighting zombies — they’re picking fights with each other and threatening to split off from the group. Watch the trailer after the jump.

We were told that there would be no significant interruption in production. To achieve that, a new showrunner has already been named: Glen Mazzara, who wrote for the first season and was hired as Frank Darabont’s right-hand man for season 2. Read More »

The new television season isn’t quite upon us yet, but the networks have definitely started gearing up. HBO’s just released an extended trailer for the eighth (and last) season of its escapist Hollywood fantasy Entourage, set to premiere in two weeks.
[UPDATE: Sadly, it turns out that the Walking Dead video posted below is fan-made and not an official teaser. Original story follows.] Over at AMC, the producers behind The Walking Dead have only recently begun casting for its new characters, but a recently released photo and now a brand-new teaser promise that the next season will be just as zombie-tastic as the last. Watch both trailers after the jump.
