2019 Saturn Awards Nominations

The 45th Saturn Awards nominations have been announced. Normally the Saturn Awards winners are held in June, but this year, the genre-loving awards have been revamped thanks to shifting the presentation of the awards themselves to September. As part of this revitalization, the awards will also be partnering with a streaming site in order to get more exposure, and an announcement will be coming soon with information about where fans can watch the broadcast.

In order to accommodate this major change, the eligibility window for this year’s nominations stretches all the way back to March 1, 2018 and runs through July 7, 2019. That means you’ll see nominees ranging from Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One last year to this year’s third season of Stranger Things. That’s quite a huge window, and there are plenty to get through, so let’s check out the full list of 2019 Saturn Awards nominations below. Read More »

Walking Dead comic ending

The Walking Dead will live on in the form of TV shows, spin-offs, and movies for a while yet, but Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard‘s comic book that started it all has come to a dramatic surprise end. The ongoing series, which had been published regularly since 2003, ends tomorrow with issue #193, a lengthy wrap-up in the wake of a jaw-dropping development in the story. Read Kirkman’s explanation for why he decided to end the comic, but beware: there are spoilers ahead. Read More »

the walking dead spin-off

It’s going to take more than an axe to the head to kill The Walking Dead. AMC’s most lucrative TV series has already spun off into a moderately successful second series, Fear the Walking Dead, and now it will be adding a third series into the ever-expanding Walking Dead universe. AMC is reportedly planning a new The Walking Dead spin-off series that will be lead by two young female protagonists and debut sometime in 2020.

AMC refuses to let The Walking Dead die. Ratings for the zombie show have been in a steady decline, and yet AMC has plans to make Walking Dead movies featuring Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, as well as continue the Walking Dead spin-off Fear the Walking Dead. But even that’s not enough. There is now yet another Walking Dead spin-off in active development. What’s it about? AMC isn’t saying, but I’m going to take a wild guess and say it involves zombies.

The Walking Dead Losing Danai Gurira

In the pages of Image Comics’ The Walking Dead, Rick Grimes and Michonne are among the longest-surviving major characters and their war against the zombie apocalypse continues through the latest issues. However, the AMC television adaptation is about to feature a very different line-up. Following Andrew Lincoln’s departure from the show earlier this season, Danai Gurira is set to exit as well.

walking dead lawsuit

Eight years after its premiere, The Walking Dead is still one of AMC’s biggest hits as its surviving human characters continue their battle against undead walkers and keep a wary eye on other humans they encounter. But one of the people who helped turn the show into a huge success is still fighting his own battle against the network itself.

Frank Darabont, who developed the series for television and served as its first showrunner, filed a Walking Dead lawsuit back in 2013 that has finally made its way before a judge – and it sounds like a jury is going to decide whether the network screwed Darabont out of over $250 million. Get the latest update below.

Endings are natural. In its zeal to depict a post-apocalyptic world where no one is safe, The Walking Dead has killed off a lot of characters, so on the surface, it would seem to understand that idea very well. With its revolving door of cast members and showrunners, the show has superficially embraced change, all the while maintaining a certain underlying status quo.

When news broke this summer that the show’s star, Andrew Lincoln, would be leaving The Walking Dead in its ninth season, we didn’t know what the fate of his character, Rick Grimes, would be. It was probably too much to hope that he would ride off into the sunset. Yet while it might seem like common sense that Rick would simply be fed into the meat-grinder, there was always a chance that the show would find a way to write him off without killing him.

If so, he wouldn’t be the first character to disappear and be kept on hand for a later possible comeback. Other Season 1 names like Morgan, Merle, and Morales (remember that guy?) had exited the show, only to reappear seasons later as guest stars or even full-fledged recurring characters. Following last night’s episode, “What Comes After,” we now know how that squares with Rick’s fate. Let’s dive into heavy spoilers about Rick Grimes and how his 120-episode arc reflects what is arguably a fundamental flaw in The Walking Dead: namely, its early mission statement to be the “zombie movie that never ends.”

the walking dead movies

This Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead bid goodbye to its grizzled lead of nine seasons — or did it? Andrew Lincoln made a highly publicized exit from the AMC zombie show Sunday night, but it seems like that won’t be the last we’ll see of former Sheriff Rick Grimes.

AMC is expanding the Walking Dead franchise into multiple The Walking Dead movies, set to be headlined by Lincoln. Which answers the question to Sunday night’s episode, titled “What Comes After”, pretty clearly.

Spoilers for Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead below.
