Right now The Walking Dead is in the middle of its seventh season, and it’s perhaps the most upsetting season for fans yet. The arrival of Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan is really shaking up every aspect of the show, and some fans haven’t been able to handle it. That’s not stopping the show from being just as popular, and the passion of fans just might result in the title heading to the big screen.
The Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple was recently asked about the possibility of a movie ever coming to fruition, and he revealed that it’s a topic that has been discussed occasionally. But does that mean the idea has potential? Find out what he had to say about the jump, and also get the remaining episode titles and synopses for the rest of the new episodes this year, but beware of some spoilers. Read More »
Last night brought Dave Chappelle to Studio 8H in 30 Rockefeller Plaza to host Saturday Night Live. This was a huge return to sketch comedy for the comedian who stepped away from a $50 million contract at Comedy Central, and the result was an outstanding episode of SNL overall. We’ll get to that later today, but first, there’s a sketch that you just have to see as soon as possible.
While we thought rights issues would prevent Dave Chappelle from being able to revive any of his signature characters from Chappelle’s Show, they must have worked something out with Comedy Central. Originally Chappelle wasn’t sure he wanted to bring back any of his characters while hosting SNL, and who can blame him, but he saw the perfect opportunity to do so by parodying the seventh season premiere of The Walking Dead where the twisted Negan decides which of the show’s main characters he’s going to kill with his trusty bat Lucy.

There is currently no end in sight for AMC’s The Walking Dead. Season eight has already been ordered, but earlier this year, AMC’s president said they want to keep the show going as long as Robert Kirkman‘s comic still provides enough material. Understandably, AMC has zero interest in ending The Walking Dead at the moment, but they also don’t know what the ending of the show is yet.

For the longest time, George Romero was the king of zombie movies. Thanks to the innovation that was Night of the Living Dead, zombies became all the rage, and the filmmaker has had a niche in the undead horror thriller world for decades now. Following the original film’s release in 1968, Romero made Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead, and more recently he’s followed those up with Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead and Survival of the Dead. But now even the king of zombie movies is having trouble getting them made.
In a recent interview, George Romero reveals that he’s been having trouble getting financing for the kind of zombie movies he wants to make, and he puts the blame on World War Z and The Walking Dead. Find out more below. Read More »
If there’s one person who knows a lot about walking, it’s John Cleese. Therefore, while it might seem completely out of left field to have the comedian from Monty Python give us a recap of all six season of The Walking Dead, it’s actually brilliant.

If you need a reminder of what’s happened over the past six years of the show, this recap is a rather entertaining way to catch up. Actually, it’s pretty entertaining even if you don’t need to catch up.

We are less than two weeks away from the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead, which is great news if you’re all caught up and eager to finally get resolution on that controversial season 6 finale.

Fortunately, AMC is here to help you out. The network has announced an 88-hour marathon to air in the days leading up to the season 7 premiere. Read More »
At the beginning of the year, during AMC’s annual Television Critics Association panel, Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development and Charlie Collier, president of the network, indicated they had no intentions of ending The Walking Dead anytime soon. In their minds, since the comic book that inspired the show is still going strong, the show can keep on chugging without a worry (and it won’t catch up to the comics in the way that Game of Thrones has caught up and surpassed George R.R. Martin’s books).
However, despite the fact that The Walking Dead has been using the comics as source material, that doesn’t mean that when the ending of the series will match the ending in the comic books. Find out why The Walking Dead ending will be different in each format after the jump. Read More »

Now we’ve learned exactly how much he is seeking in damages: a jaw-dropping $280 million. Read More »

So much of the promotion for The Walking Dead season 7 has centered around Negan — who he is, how he’ll shake things up, what really happened when he swung his trusty bat in the season 6 finale. But he’s not the only reason to look forward to the next run of episodes. The latest Walking Dead season 7 trailer shifts the spotlight to new character Ezekiel (Khary Payton), leader of the Kingdom and best friend to an adorable yet intimidating tiger named Shiva. Morgan (Lennie James) gets quite a bit of screentime too. Check it out below. Read More »
