This weekend, the 45th Saturn Awards honored the best in fantasy, sci-fi, and horror motion pictures, television shows and more. Held at the historic Avalon Theater in Hollywood and streamed online on eight different platforms, the awards show was hosted by Aisha Tyler and featured appearances by some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. But no one had a bigger presence than Avengers: Endgame, which walked away with six total awards, including Best Comic-to-Motion Picture Release and Best Actor in a Film for Robert Downey Jr. Otherwise, the awards were spread out pretty evenly throughout the evening.

But The Walking Dead‘s expansion is a little more innocuous: It comes in the form of a new series: the third The Walking Dead series following the original and Fear the Walking Dead. It won’t be the last either, as AMC plans to keep developing new shows set in this zombie-filled universe.
The third The Walking Dead series was teased at Fear the Walking Dead‘s San Diego Comic-Con panel, but now we get a glimpse of its cast and concept art in a new The Walking Dead spin-off trailer.

The latest Comic-Con panel for AMC’s The Walking Dead arrives at a pivotal time for the series. Original star Andrew Lincoln has left the show and Danai Gurira will bow out after this season. The Image comic book, which has long been the chief inspiration for the show and its storylines, has come to an end.

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 »
