Most film and television productions have ground to a halt because of the coronavirus pandemic, and we’ve previously written about how most network TV shows probably won’t be able to finish airing their current seasons. But now the reality is fully sinking in for several productions that won’t be able to complete production or post-production in time to hit their previously-established air dates. Read More »

The Walking Dead: World Beyond is taking the zombie drama franchise in a different direction when it arrives on AMC sometime early this year. The series takes place roughly 10 years into the zombie apocalypse, which puts it around the same time that the 10th season of The Walking Dead would be taking place after the show’s most recent time jump. Does that mean we could be looking at some kind of crossover with the main series? The Walking Dead chief content officer Scott M. Gimple recently discussed the possibility of seeing the new spin-off running into the primary series and how all the shows are connected. Read More »
This past week, we got our first look at the second series to spin-off from AMC’s zombie drama The Walking Dead. The new series still doesn’t have a title, but the first trailer has been dubbed the next installment of The Walking Dead Universe, and for the first time ever, it focuses on two young female protagonists as part of the first generation to come-of-age in the wake of the zombie apocalypse. Though society seems to have gotten a little more “normal,” there’s still plenty danger lurking out in the world as a group of teens ventures out into it for themselves. But there may also be hope for a brighter future for these kids out there. Watch The Walking Dead spin-off trailer below. Read More »
AMC will never let The Walking Dead die. Even as ratings (and quality) decline, it’s still the biggest hit they have. In addition to the still-going main TV series they also have the spin-off Fear the Walking Dead. And then there’s a Walking Dead movie with Andrew Lincoln heading to theaters. You’d think that might be enough, but no: there’s another spin-off coming as well. This still-untitled show follows young protagonists who are the first to come of age in a post-zombie world. The first official new Walking Dead spin-off images have been released, and you can see them below.

Last November, we exclusively told you that Vince Gilligan‘s Breaking Bad movie would feature the return of Aaron Paul and be about what happens to Jesse Pinkman after the series finale. Since then, Gilligan has done a masterful job of keeping the plot details vague and not giving anything away, but a new report has some El Camino details, including that it’s a “closed-ended story” and that it features more than 10 characters from Breaking Bad.
Plus: Netflix is giving the movie a limited theatrical release, and you can find out if it’ll play in a city near you below.

Things are going to get even more emotionally devastating on Better Call Saul season 5. The Breaking Bad prequel has been slowly ratcheting up the tension, with each season bringing more and more shocking moments as Jimmy McGill transforms into Saul Goodman. Season 4 ended with perhaps the most jaw-dropping story development yet, but according to star Bob Odenkirk, we haven’t seen anything yet. Odenkirk says that the approaching season 5 is going to be mind-blowing and that it’s “shattering in every direction.”

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
One of the best shows on television last year, bar none, was AMC’s The Terror. The first season adapted the Dan Simmons novel of the same name, telling the complete story of a doomed Arctic expedition aboard the HMS Terror and HMS Erebus. It was based on Sir John Franklin’s lost expedition, a real historical incident. The ship’s names really were synonyms for “fear” and “hell,” and in their search for the Northwest Passage, they really did disappear with 129 men aboard.
You don’t have to be a J-horror lover to be excited about The Terror: Infamy (read our review here) … but it certainly helps. This second season of The Terror is reinventing the show as an anthology series that serves up period drama with a horror twist. If you were so inclined, you could even go into it without having watched the first season (but why would you do that when the first season was so bracingly good?) What’s clear from the trailers and promos is that The Terror: Infamy will be drawing from both the real history of Japanese internment camps in the U.S. and the genre of kaidan (ghost tales) in Japanese literature.
How well do you really know your Japanese ghosts? Can you tell a ghost from a shapeshifter? How well do you really know your World War II history? Below, we’ll debrief the intrepid viewer on the supernatural folklore, Japanese cultural traditions, and real-life wartime events behind The Terror: Infamy. Consider this your field guide for the, ahem, terror that awaits viewers in the weeks to come. Read More »
Fear the Walking Dead has never achieved the popularity of its sister show, but it remains a key piece of one of the biggest franchises on television…and a constant presence in Hall H at Comic-Con. AMC brought the series back to the world’s largest pop culture convention in the middle of the series’ fifth season, which continued the show’s attempt to soft-reboot itself with new cast members and a new direction.
Here’s what we learned from the panel.
