walking dead negan casting

The Walking Dead remains one of the most frustrating shows on television. Fluctuating between genuinely thrilling genre filmmaking and insipid, wheel-spinning nonsense, no show on modern television demands that its fans grin and bear it quite like AMC’s ever-popular zombie drama. But when it’s good — and it has often been very good these past two seasons — it’s one of the most visceral gun-punches available on any medium right now. It just took more than a few years of tedium to get there.

And now, the TV series is about to embark on one of its constantly terrific comic book counterpart’s most famous and controversial storylines. The reliably great Jeffrey Dean Morgan has joined the Walking Dead cast as Negan, a human villain who makes David Morrissey’s Governor look downright cuddly. This character has defined the past few years of the comic book storyline for writer Robert Kirkman and artist Charlie Adlard. If handled well, Negan is going to be a big deal on the show.

Walking Dead special

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 »

Fear the Walking Dead promo

We’re still a few weeks away from the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead, the companion series to AMC’s hit horror drama The Walking Dead. but the spin-off series was recently given a 15-episode order for a second season, as recounted in our TCA coverage.

And along with news of that second season order, a new teaser promo for the series premiere has arrived. 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.
