Get ready for a total zombie takeover. Earlier this week, AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan teased an expansion of The Walking Dead universe, which would extend through the next 10 years — if not longer. Now, a new report has shed some light on what those plans would entail, including a feature film, more shows and spinoffs, and a version of the hit series set in a different country.
It is a confusing time to follow The Walking Dead. A few major upsets had fans wondering if Season 9 might break from the comic entirely, but first photos from the Georgia set tease a strange new (albeit familiar) look for the AMC zombie drama. Is that time-jump happening after all?
Another season of The Walking Dead has come to a close, but all is not resolved. Reports indicate star Lauren Cohan has not finalized a deal to return for the ninth season, even as Sunday’s Season 8 closer set Maggie up for a major arc.
The Walking Dead will air its eighth season finale this Sunday, but it’s not just war at stake. According to cast departures and a new quote from exiting showrunner Scott Gimple, Sunday’s finale will be “the conclusion of the first eight seasons,” and lead to “a bigger, new narrative” next year.
April will soon become our most apocalyptic month. Before the impending finale fills us with Fear, The Walking Dead heralds its companion series’ fourth season with an extended trailer of Morgan crossing over with Madison, Nick, Alicia and the rest.
The Walking Dead made waves with a significant change to the source material in recent weeks, and fallout continues to rain. Series lead Jeffrey Dean Morgan is the latest to admit he’s “disappointed” with how AMC handled a major character exit, citing it as a reason he joined the series in the first place.
The Walking Dead has returned for 2018, at last confirming that huge death hanging over the series. The moment also had the unexpected side-effect of dismissing a huge time-jump from the comics, but producers say “Old Man Rick” and a major status quo update may still take place.
It’s starting to feel like The Walking Dead itself may have been bitten. Star Lauren Cohan recently went out for pilots in a likely bid to renegotiate her Walking Dead contract, but has now officially signed to a new series over displeasure with AMC’s offers.
The Walking Dead has tried and failed to get one over on fans before, but might be close to its biggest trick yet. According to creator Robert Kirkman, the show’s imminent and most shocking demise might not be so fatal after all. Slim hope, but we’ll take it.
