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.

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).

The producers of The Walking Dead gave a press conference at San Diego Comic-Con. This included Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, Greg Nicotero, Dave Alpert and Gale Anne Hurd. In their panel, The Walking Dead showed a trailer revealing new characters Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Shiva, a tiger, both of whom fans of the comic book will recognize. Kirkman said even more familiar characters are coming, but we should focus on Ezekiel and Shiva.
“We’ll always be bringing characters from the comics,” Kirkman said. “We were reaching that point where Ezekiel is in the storyline so it was just a natural progression. As we move through the storyline, we’ll be bringing some characters in episodes, some characters later and stuff like that but there will definitely be other characters that you can see this season and some surprises coming I think. Right now it’s all about Ezekiel and Shiva as far as new characters.” Read More »

Outcast marks Robert Kirkman’s third series on television simultaneously, along with The Walking Dead and its spinoff Fear the Walking Dead. Based on Kirkman’s own new comic, the Outcast adaptation on Cinemax, tackles the horror subgenre of demonic possession and exorcisms. Kirkman and showrunner Chris Black gave a roundtable interview with reporters to discuss the new series.
“While we are playing with the tropes of the genre, we are kind of coming at them in a little bit of a different way,” Kirkman said. “[We] will be actually exploring, like, what is levitation? Why is that happening? What is the phenomenon that actually causes that? Why are people who are possessed behaving this way? Why don’t they like light? Why are they harming themselves in terrifying ways for seemingly no reason. These are questions that you’re going to be getting as you watch the show and hopefully getting answers to eventually.” Read More »
