walking-dead-season-5-1024x772

AMC has now released the official art for “The Walking Dead”, set to premiere Sunday, October 12 at 9 p.m.

Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun), Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) and Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) were left handcuffed in the Terminus train car, echoing the survivors’ predicament in the Season 4 Finale cliffhanger.

“Following the devastating events of the mid-season finale, Rick and the group are still reeling from the loss of their home, family, and friends. With the destruction of the prison, we see the group of survivors broken apart and sent on divergent paths, unsure of everyone else’s fate. What was a challenging life behind fences and walls grows that much more perilous and precious as they are exposed to new dangers, new enemies, and heartbreaking choices. They will have their faith thoroughly tested — a faith that breaks some of them and redeems others.”

The poster features Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes, not where we left him (in a train car at Terminus), but crouching in the shrubs and brandishing his trusty gun.

The Walking DeadAMC

New year, new slogan. AMC released new key art for The Walking Dead season five, featuring a very sweaty Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) with the tagline “Hunt or Be Hunted.”

“From the opening tease in the premiere onward, season five is without question the most ambitious and satisfying season this amazing team has ever crafted,” Charlie Collier, AMC president, said in a statement when the fifth season trailer came out. “In the zombie apocalypse, event television is alive and well, and I am proud to acknowledge that this uniquely talented writing staff, production team and cast have once again raised the bar (and the crossbow).”

The show, which has continuously been a ratings hit in the 18-49 demographic, returns for a fifth season on Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. on AMC. Season four ended with Rick and Co. trapped in a train car by the people of Terminus. Much of the second half of the fourth season featured the survivors on the road to Terminus. Once they got there? Well, things weren’t exactly what they seemed.

It’s safe to say they get out of the train car, but at what cost? Steven Yeun, Glenn on The Walking Dead, told E! News that the season-five premiere may be too extreme for TV.

Glenn and Maggie spent a good chunk of last season of The Walking Dead trying to find each other. They finally did! Annnnnnnd then they promptly got captured at Terminus. Well, that kind of sucks.

‘The Walking Dead’ cast reveals how they would like their characters to die

So that begs the question: Are Glenn and Maggie better off being safe but separate, or trapped together? And when a question begs, we ask it, so ask it we did of the actors who play Glenn and Maggie — Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan. Which scenario would Glenn and Maggie prefer? “That a good question,” said Cohan while taking a break from her EW Walking Dead cover shoot. “Are they better together but in peril, or separately but free? I think that really Maggie and Glenn are better together. Even if it’s the most perilous situation you know that they’ll find a way out of it — or at least you hope that they’ll find a way out of it. They spent a lot of time trying to find each last year — it’s like, no more!”

‘The Walking Dead’ is set to return this October and AMC is already starting to release a ton of new shots for the series. This time around we have a look at the new character Father Gabriel who is set to be portrayed by Seth Gilliam (‘Starship Troopers’, ‘The Wire’). On top of that some of the major cast members had a fun photo shoot over at EW that fans of the characters should be sure to enjoy!

First up here is a look at Seth Gilliam in character.

Also Seth had time to sit down and share a little about what research he did on the character as well as how he tried to keep covered up to not ruin the surprise from when filming started.

“I only read the comic book where Father Gabriel was introduced, which I think was episode 61 in the comics. I didn’t read anything before that, and I haven’t read anything after that. I discovered from reading about the show that often times characters’ names and journeys are kind of crisscrossed and mismatched, so I thought if I did read too much I might be giving myself a lot of information that would be useless, or just outright wrong. So I figured, like with everything, I’d just take the script and try to fill him out the best I possibly can…

Hello Friends.

A lot of the post San Diego Comic Con glow has worn off.  During those five heavenly days, I participated in The Walking Dead Escape.  I couldn’t tell my story then, but I’m ready now.

The keenest eyes among you will remember that I ran in the inaugural Walking Dead Escape back in 2012 and wrote this article.

In 2012, I pushed, I shoved, and I used my less agile geeky brethren as human shields so that I might live to see another day.  Do I wish I could have acted more civilly?  Perhaps.  But do I regret my actions?  That’s a harder question.  You see, regret is a dimension through which we analyze our behavior only when survival is a given.  In the middle of a zombie apocalypse, there is no pride, no shame, only life.   I choose life.

Everyone who’s alive right now. Everyone’s who’s made it this far. We’ve all done the worst kinds of things just to stay alive. But we can still come back. We’re not too far gone. We get to come back.

-Rick Grimes

Well pals, this year, thanks to the fine folks at the Walking Dead Escape and Skybound, I got to come back.  As I put my press lanyard around my neck, I though back to 2012, to the choices I made.  I did the worst kinds of things to survive.  I’m pretty sure that if I had filmed any of my adventure and posted it online, “Otis-ing” would have gone viral and become a thing.  Now that I was a couple of years older and wiser, the question remained, was I too far gone?

Put the kids to bed early this October because, according to Andrew Lincoln, Season 4 of “The Walking Dead” isn’t for children.

“We’re really earning our rating this season,” Lincoln told Entertainment Weekly for their special four-cover issue. “There are families that watch it together, but just so it’s on the record, guys — it’s a grown-up show this season.”

Some of the gore is likely contributed to by the mass number of walkers that will be seen this season. Season 4 had 9,000, according to Huffington Post.

“I can tell you that in the mid-season finale that we just finished shooting there were upwards of 800 walkers for just that episode,” Greg Nicotero, the show’s executive producer and makeup artist, said. “I haven’t done the tally yet for this season, but being out in the world it’s a little trickier to avoid zombies. When you’re in the prison, you have a safe haven. The zombies aren’t so much of an everyday occurrence, whereas in this season we’re out in the world at some point so they’re there.”

The Walking Dead prepares to make its return to TV as season 5 promises to be one of the most intense and goriest yet.

Daryl The Walking Dead Season 5 Gets New Magazine Covers  CharactersTo celebrate the return of the zombie thriller, Entertainment Weekly released 4 character variant covers and an inside scoop on what’s to come.

It comes as no surprise that AMC’s The Walking Dead has created a pop culture tidal wave of zombie fandom. Or perhaps sword wielding, cross-bow slinging fandom. Either way the monolithic series is slashing its way to TV this fall and we’ll be the first to admit – we’re ready for it. Heck, we’re counting down the days ’til the Atlanta gang do what they do best: survive.

Executive producer Robert Kirkman promises that the action will be fast and plentiful when things pick back up on October 12th:

“By minute two or three of our season premiere, I think the vast majority of our questions have been answered,” says Kirkman, “and five or six more have been presented, so you’re very much going to be invested, well-informed, and ready for the ride that we’re going to take you on.”

If memory serves, things weren’t looking too good for Rick and the gang in the season 4 finale, as they were trapped inside a train car, under the thumb of some rather questionable characters. So there’s no surprise that things hit the ground running in the first episode. Fans aren’t lacking for questions, that’s for sure.

Having just finished my review of the final episode of The Walking Dead Season Two [$4.99], I thought it might be nice to decompress with a little pinball, as I often do after finishing a story-heavy game. Luckily for me, the developers behind Zen Pinball [Free] just released a thematically-appropriate new table as both a standalone app and an in-app purchase within the regular app. The Walking Dead Pinball [$1.99] follows most of the well-established trappings of Zen Studios’s take on silverball, so it’s hard to say if people burnt out on their offerings will be all that excited with it. For fans of The Walking Dead game, however, it brings just enough of the character of Season One [Free] to make it worth checking out.

The Walking Dead Pinball is a table built around settings and situations from Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season One. As with their other tables, it takes advantage of being a video pinball game to do some things that a real mechanical table couldn’t. Most immediately, that means that you’ve got fully 3D models of Lee and Clementine hanging out on either side of the bottom of the table. They’ll sometimes move around and interact as you perform certain shots, and they both retain their original voices, though I think they’re mostly just clips from the game and not anything new. Other characters appear on the board and occasionally show up in the faux-digital display during certain events. You’ll also hear clips of their voices from time to time.

As we all know, many of The Walking Dead cast aren’t long for this world. We’ve lost a lot of great characters over the last four seasons and with hints dropping left, right and center about Season 5 I’m sure we’re going to lose a few more soon.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly the actors were asked how they wanted their characters to die on the show and the answers were pretty interesting! Check out how they think their characters should kick the bucket:

——————————————

Andrew Lincoln – Rick Grimes

It seems like Andrew Lincoln doesn’t really care how Rick Grimes goes out as long as there’s a killer sound track:

I don’t care how it goes, but maybe a kid should take me out…I texted Scott Gimple and I said, “Promise me, when I die, on the credits sequence, you play Johnny Cash’s version of ‘Hurt.’” And he just said, “I can’t make that promise obviously.” So when I die…even if Scott Gimple decides not to, please everybody play “Hurt.”

I have to say it would be a pretty fitting song for Rick Grimes to go out on, but Andrew Lincoln should care more about how Rick might die! I’ll be rioting on the street if Sheriff Rick is taken down by a kid!

——————————————

Norman Reedus – Daryl Dixon

Norman Reedus: professional bad-ass, has a pretty cool idea about what should happen to Daryl:

Tags: , ,

Emotional distress can represent a multitude of ailments. From anger to heartbreak, that feeling of despair, of a severed connection, can overwhelm us completely. Such was the absolute sadness crashing over me while completing Episode 5 of Telltale Games’ “The Walking Dead: Season 2.”

The appropriately titled “No Going Back” is a test case of suffering the consequences of our actions, both previous and current. We’re forced from the very start to make debilitating, life-or-death choices that revel how we feel about those we’ve traveled with, the ones we cared about and the ones we easily leave behind.

And if you’ve become as invested in these characters as I have, those choices will leave you traumatized. Which, I believe, is the effect Telltale is trying to achieve. It’s not so much what happens to those surrounding us, it’s that we find ourselves at the center of all this chaos, somehow always responsible in ways we can’t control.

While explosive at its opening, Episode 5 does take a little while to get going, utilizing the first hour of this two-hour downloadable episode to temper the angst and adrenaline. We spend this time conversing with the remaining survivors, trying to find some calm in this living nightmare. While never jovial (the walking dead pop up constantly to ruin the mood), the mood lightens, granting a bit of a reprieve.

It’s quickly shattered.

seth-gilliam-the-walking-dead-father-gabriel-stokes.jpgAnother famous
“The Walking Dead” comic book character is heading to the small screen: in the upcoming fifth season of the AMC hit, Seth Gilliam will play Father Gabriel Stokes.

“I actually did not realize I was reading for the role of Father Gabriel during the casting process,” Gilliam tells
Entertainment Weekly. “The sides were for a school guidance counselor named Michael who had an issue with a couple of his students.”

A week after Gilliam auditioned, he was offered the role — and producer Gale Anne Hurd revealed who the character was really supposed to be. Although Gilliam then caught up on the show, he hasn’t caught up on the comics — but that’s on purpose.

“I only read the comic book where Father Gabriel was introduced, which I think was episode 61 in the comics. I didn’t read anything before that, and I haven’t read anything after that,” he says.

He continues, “I discovered from reading about the show that often times characters’ names and journeys are kind of crisscrossed and mismatched, so I thought if I did read too much I might be giving myself a lot of information that would be useless, or just outright wrong. So I figured, like with everything, I’d just take the script and try to fill him out the best I possibly can.”

The inclusion of a new character in the form of Father Gabriel Stokes is going to be interesting. Recently, Seth Gilliam, who is playing Gabriel in the upcoming season, talked to Entertainment Weekly.

“I actually did not realize I was reading for the role of Father Gabriel during the casting process. The sides were for a school guidance counselor named Michael, who had an issue with a couple of his students. I had not seen the show before I was cast on the show. So I just thought, Okay, I guess they’ve discovered some guy who’s holed up at a school or something like that and was carrying around this horrible exchange that he had with his students,” Gilliam said about his casting process.

Gilliam also shared that he “only read the comic book where Father Gabriel was introduced.”

“The Walking Dead” Season 5 premieres on Sunday, Oct. 12, 2014 on AMC.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Spoilers: Daryl Dixon Loves Beth but Beth loves Andrew?

As filming for The Walking Dead season 5 continues, fans are more than eager to get updates about the zombie horror-thriller.

Meanwhile, AMC has released the title of the premiere episode, which is as exciting as the trailer of the popular series.

The first episode of season 5 is titled ‘No Sanctuary‘, which precisely describes the current situation of Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon and the rest of the group who aspired to reach the ‘safe’ sanctuary of the Terminus all through the last season.

But contrary to their hopes, they were caged inside by the Terminus leader Garreth. It is still unclear whether the members of the Terminus are cannibals or doing some deadly experiments on survivors of the zombie apocalypse that plagued the human race.

Meanwhile, the filming of the most awaited show is in full swing and The Spoiling Dead Fans keep posting updates about the TWD crew’s filming locations and other details.

The Facebook fan page also posted some pictures of Rick, Gabriel, Sasha, Abraham, Maggie, Carol and Rosita on location.

The description of the fan page reads:

“Thanks Dee:

So far we can see Rick, Gabriel, Abraham, Rosita, Michonne, Carol, Sasha, Maggie and what looks to be Tara with with her shirt hanging from her back and her hair up.”

The Spoiling Dead Fans shared and posted two photographs.

The on-set images show Andrew Lincoln, Melissa McBride and other stars filming in an undisclosed woody location.

Let’s be honest: Michonne’s timing kind of sucks. Just when the loner with the samurai sword starts opening herself up to others and trusting people, she ends up locked in a train car by people who may or may not want to eat her. So, it’s not exactly kumbaya time, is what we’re getting at.

Keeping all that in mind, what kind of Michonne can we expect to see in season 5 (which kicks off Oct. 12 on AMC)? Actress Danai Gurira says that there will be an internal struggle as Michonne will feel pulled in two different directions. “She does yearn for something more stable in life,” Gurira told us while taking a break from posing for her new EW Walking Dead cover. “She really believes that Carl needs something more stable than where they are and what they have been experiencing, but also she’s very committed to what has to be done. She’s a woman who does what has to be done, so that involves a lot of ferocity.”

According to Gurira, also complicating matters is the fact that she may have no choice but to stand strong and fight when faced against foes both living and undead. “It is a very interesting arc that she is on in terms of how is that going to show itself,” says Gurira. “Is she trying to move away from how much of a warrior she is? But will the world allow that?”

Today we have our first look at Seth Gilliam in the role of Father Gabriel on The Walking Dead season 5, premiering this October.

The uneventful still, above, depicts Father Gabriel in front of a line of trees as the sun glistens on his face. Perhaps this is one of his early encounters with Rick and company as they’re making their way up to Washington D.C.

In the comic series by Robert Kirkman, Father Gabriel welcomes the humans into his church when they’re in need of a place to stay. The Father is looking to do some good deeds in light of past events.

Speaking to EW, where the new still debuted today, Gilliam spoke about preparing for his new role. He says he only read one of the Dead comic books, and it was the issue where Gabriel was introduced. “I didn’t read anything before that, and I haven’t read anything after that. I discovered from reading about the show that often times characters’ names and journeys are kind of crisscrossed and mismatched, so I thought if I did read too much I might be giving myself a lot of information that would be useless, or just outright wrong. So I figured, like with everything, I’d just take the script and try to fill him out the best I possibly can.”

As the central character in The Walking Dead, most believe that Andrew Lincoln’s character Rick Grimes is fairly safe. However, Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman often insists no one is safe, so the possibility of Rick eventually dying is a reality.

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lincoln weighed in on what he would like to see happen if Rick ever did get killed off on the AMC show.

“I’ve always said, I don’t care how it goes, but maybe a kid should take me out,” said Lincoln. “It’s funny, because I was in the car yesterday, and I texted Scott Gimple and I said, ‘Promise me, when I die, on the credits sequence, you play Johnny Cash’s version of Hurt.’ And he just said, ‘I can’t make that promise obviously.’ So when I die, please print it in your magazine so that the fans will know to play it, even if we can’t. Even if Scott Gimple decides not to, please everybody play Hurt.”

The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on Sunday, October 12, 2014 at 9 PM ET on AMC.

Per a new batch of spoilers from TVLine, Season 5, Episode 1 is called “No Sanctuary.” As you may recall, Terminus was referred to as a “sanctuary” of sorts during Season 4 (remember those creepy radio announcements?) but the premiere’s moniker makes it clear that this place is most definitely not a safe haven. You know, if the termites trapping Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his crew in a train car didn’t drive that point home already.

Want more hints that Terminus is pretty much the worst sanctuary ever? Rick threatens to kill Terminus leader Gareth in this sneak peek as Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) are bound and gagged.

This teaser has gas masks, sketchy surgery, and haunting screams, and we still don’t know what (or who?) Mary was cooking on that grill in the Season 4 finale. However, while we may be in the dark about Terminus now, we’re expecting to get “a ton” of info in “No Sanctuary.” As comic book creator Robert Kirkman recently explained, “By minute two or three of our season premiere, I think the vast majority of our questions have been answered.” But in true TWD fashion, it’s not that simple. He continued, “and five or six more [will] have been presented, so you’re very much going to be invested, well-informed, and ready for the ride that we’re going to take you on.”
