*SPOILERS AHEAD*

Over the summer, when they were filming the second half, The Spoiling Dead Fans shared some scary intel about Tyreese (Chad Coleman) getting bloodied-up and having to be carried out by Rick and Glenn. Actor Chad Coleman wasn’t seen on set after that point, and in November he was named a series regular on a new show.  

Similar story with Noah (Tyler James Williams), although without the bloody spoiler. He was never confirmed to be on the set being used as the Alexandria Safe-Zone, which we should see around Episode 11. Some locals claim to have seen him, but it’s not clear — and it’s clear for everyone else in our group, other than Tyreese/Chad and Noah/Tyler. (There was a question about Tara/Alanna for a while, but she was apparently seen by the end of the season.) Also, Tyler was just named a series regular on a new show. Nail meet coffin?

So it’s possible that both Tyreese and Noah die in Episode 9 or Episode 10 (depending on when this is covered), before our group meets Aaron, a recruiter for the Alexandria Safe-Zone and we head up to the D.C. area. Or maybe just Tyreese dies, with something else happening to Noah. Or it could be that one or both of them just leave our group. That’s rarely how it works, but it’s possible. (Update: Spoiling Dead Fans tweeted that they confirmed that Tyreese does die. They added, “Should be episode 10/11,” so we’ll see.)

In the video below, you can see locations that are also featured in the poster AMC shared, giving further weight to the idea that it’s coming soon in the second half. There’s a gate at the Safe-Zone, with houses ahead of and behind it, plus a church and the bell tower that sharp-shooter Andrea uses in the comic book. Maybe Sasha will be the new resident sniper, since she’s good at that.

The video shares more than 7 minutes of footage, but if you are tempted to head to Georgia to see the place in person — it’s very close to the location used for Woodbury — just be mindful of the areas marked as private property. Just a guess, but we’re thinking area authorities are going to crack down on visitors.

The Walking Dead Season 5, Episode 9 premieres Sunday, February 8, 2015 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.

The Walking Dead Tyreese And Carol

Recent season 5 spoilers for “The Walking Dead” tease the inevitable death of Tyreese, a reunion with Morgan and crazy hallucinations during next Sunday’s midseason premiere.

The news comes to Design Trend through a smattering of sources mostly curated by the Spoiling Dead Fans Facebook page. The scandalous social media group has become infamous for providing accurate spoilers for AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” Most recently, their sources spoiled the shocking demise of Beth Greene months before November’s midseason finale.

As for the most recent season 5 spoilers, it’s been heavily deduced that Tyreese will likely be the next casualty of Rick Grimes’ group. This news was speculated by Design Trend earlier in the week, but further details on the circumstances of the death have since emerged. Posts on Spoiling Dead Fans point to the possibility that Tyreese could be bitten by a walker shortly after arriving at a new series location called Shirewilt. A recent magazine scan refers to this place as the community where Noah’s family resides. It’s suspected that Tyreese’s death could occur as soon as episode 9 or 10.

Reportedly, viewers may get their first glimpse of this new location during Feb. 8’s midseason premiere.

The title and synopsis for The Walking Dead Season 5: Episode 9 were revealed earlier this week, to the joy of the show’s fans. The show’s mid-season premiere airs February 8 on AMC, dealing with the aftermath of Beth’s death at the end of Episode 8, “Coda”. It was recently confirmed that following the series’ huge success, a spinoff show had been commissioned, also to air on AMC and reportedly filming under the title Fear The Walking Dead. While producers have so far revealed very little information about what to expect from the new series, new information suggests that plans could be in the works for a crossover between FTWD and its parent series. melty.com explains more below

According to Nerdist News, sources have confirmed that Season 6 of The Walking Dead, due to premiere later this year, will include a character from the new spinoff for a six-episode story arc. Reports suggest that the spinoff will take place during the early days of the zombie outbreak. This could mean that the character in question will meet up with Rick and co. in the main Walking Dead timeline or, alternatively, that the story arc will include flashbacks. In addition to its title, the script for The Walking Dead Season 5’s spinoff, Fear The Walking Dead, was leaked online several weeks ago. Producers have announced that the series will focus on ‘family’, with ex-Harry Potter star Frank Dillane already signed on to the project. Do you think the spinoff will be a hit?

(Frank Ockenfels 3/AMC)

The Walking Dead returns on Sunday, Feb. 8 with its midseason premiere, “What Happened and What’s Going On.” Written by Scott M. Gimple and directed by Greg Nicotero, the episode will show us how and where the group picks up after the hospital tragedy that left Beth dead. And to get you ready, we have three new exclusive gallery photos of the cast, starting above with Mr. Daryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus.

Of course, the big question is how Daryl will react to the death of Beth. The two became close after the fall of the prison and it has to be devastating for Daryl to finally find her, only to then lose her a few moments later. We’ll start to get some answers soon, but until then you’ll have to gaze into Reedus’ eyes and hope for the best. Now let’s move on and check out some exclusive new Eugene and Rosita photos as well.

Would you trust this man? If you answered yes, then you are waaaaaaay too trustworthy. Eugene admitted his big lie that he was not, in fact, a scientist, so you have to figure he’s probably not exactly the belle of the ball when things pick back up on Feb. 8. And although we have seen Abraham’s extreme reaction to the news, we haven’t yet seen how Eugene will react to Abraham’s reaction. (Other than, you know, passing out.) Either way, his mullet is still looking fierce!

If they mean the Safe-Zone, do you think they mean comic book characters like recruiters Aaron and Eric as the “familiar faces”? At first, we figured “familiar faces” would be people we’ve seen on TV before. That would certainly include Morgan, and it would be great to think Morgan would re-enter the mix sooner (Episode 9 or 10) rather than later (Episode 16 or Season 6).

If they do just mean TV characters as the “familiar faces,” who could they mean, beyond Morgan? Morgan’s son Duane is dead, sadly, but do you think maybe Morales could show up? There were rumors about him possibly being in the midseason finale, or the spinoff, even if both seem like stretches, considering the character was last seen with his family in Season 1, heading to Alabama.

What’s your theory about the “familiar faces” we’ll see along the way to sanctuary?

Here’s the Andy/Changes portion of Scott’s TV Guide interview:

The midseason premiere will reintroduce fans to this zombie-infested world in a unique way. “After reading the script, Andy Lincoln called me up and sang the David Bowie song ‘Changes,'” Gimple says with a laugh. “Some big things happen. We’re coming out of the gates offering up a very new Walking Dead.”

Cool. Or not. We’ll see! We’ve already noticed some differences in the sneak peek AMC shared. (Watch it below.) Normally the sneak peeks are whole scenes, often from early in the next episode. But AMC’s sneak peek for Episode 9 is a montage of seemingly disparate shots, more like a promo. Will that air as it is, perhaps even as the first scene of the episode? That would be unique.

Scott wrote Episode 9 and it was directed by Greg Nicotero. Greg and Andy both said Episode 9 is one of the greatest episodes the show has ever done. Andy also said Episode 10 was the episode he always wanted to make. If he’s singing “Changes” after Episode 9, is it because we already meet a certain someone who will usher us to a certain place as early as Episode 10?

What do you think about the big changes and very new show coming right in Episode 9? And how do we get on the list of people Andy calls up and sings to?

Former Governor actor from AMC’s The Walking Dead, David Morrissey, is set to star in the upcoming Showtime series The Driver.

An American adaptation of the BBC One series, The Driver follows a down-on-his-luck taxi driver, who through unfortunate circumstances, begins working for a notorious criminal. But the project isn’t exactly new territory for Morrissey. He starred as the cab driver in the original BBC One version, and even executive-produced the series. Morrissey will also executive-produce this iteration. Justified’s Taylor Elmore will write the Showtime treatment alongside Danny Brocklehurst, who wrote the original BBC scripts.

“The Driver contains subjects I love to explore – ordinary people in extraordinary situations, father and son relationships, double lives, the lies we tell ourselves, the need to escape the mundane,” Brocklehurst explained to the BBC’s website. “But most of all, I’m proud of the fact that we have mixed together a character drama and a thriller and come out with a show that can break your heart, whilst also having some kick ass car chases.”

Many will remember Morrissey’s turn as Rick Grimes’ rival, The Governor, on The Walking Dead’s fourth season.

Rochester, NY (WROC)-  Rochester’s zombies made an appearance during a commercial shoot today.  A makeup artist from the TV show “The Walking Dead” turned a Rochester school teacher into a blood-thirsty corpse!  Two actors will be made into zombies for a Rohto eye drops commercial.
   
Martino Flynn, an advertising firm in Pittsford, created the “zombie eye” concept for this shoot.  With all the zombie lovers out there, why not give “walking dead” fans something else to take a bite out of.

“The before is dramatized as almost a zombie kind of look and then the metamorphosis throughout the spot is our hero turns from zombie to a clear bright-eyed cheery person ready to take on the day thanks to Rohto,” said makeup artist Tim Downs.

You can see more of this make-up artwork on The Walking Dead, which returns with new episodes next month.

Welcome to the Spoiler Room, a safe place for spoiler addicts to come on a weekly basis to learn what’s coming next on their favorite shows and, hopefully, get a few of their own questions answered. If you want scoop on a specific show, send your questions to spoilerroom@ew.com.

Is there anything you can tease for the new season of Orange Is the New Black— Trisha 
Though I celebrated when Vee got hit by that car, not everyone will have the same reaction over her death. “It’s very emotional,” Danielle Brooks says. “It catches [Taystee] off guard.” Fear not, however: It sounds like she’ll bounce back from that. “She definitely goes on another journey with growing pains,” she continues. “We’ll find out if she falls in love or if she doesn’t.” 

What’s coming up on The Walking Dead— Jenny 
Though everything seems bleak right now following Beth’s death, there may be hope on the horizon for Rick Co. after they set out to find new sanctuary and run into a few familiar faces along the way. 

Is Liz finally going to actively question why Red is so intrinsically tied to her life on The Blacklist? — James  
That is going to come up sooner than you think. “That is a question that we’re going to continue to explore with the nature of their relationship, how they’re connected and what happened so many years ago,” executive producer Jon Bokenkamp says. “That is something that we’re going to talk about in the second part of the Super Bowl two-parter and it will continue to affect their relationship. The discoveries that Liz will make in the second part of the Super Bowl episode will have real ramifications on their relationship moving forward.”

Melissa McBride

“The Walking Dead” fans will see Carol’s funny side in the upcoming second half of the show’s Season 5.

In an interview with TV Guide magazine, showrunner Scott M. Gimple teased that moments of sorrow and misery in the back eight episodes of the current installment will be negated by surprising instances of lightheartedness involving Melissa McBride‘s character.

“Some moments are fun and even a little funny,” Gimple said. “I’m not saying that Carol is turning into Zooey Deschanel from ‘New Girl,’ but there are moments of lightness that are still mixed in with some badassery.”

Perhaps this cheery part of Carol’s personality makes McBride love her fan-favorite character even more.

The 49-year-old actress has been very vocal of how much she enjoys playing the role most especially after her storyline on the hit AMC zombie drama veered from the comics.

In fact, there was an instance when the “Mist” actress got teary-eyed while recalling how Carol has transformed from a meek, abused wife to a strong, independent, pragmatic survivor of the zombie apocalypse being portrayed on the show.

“It’s been the time of my life,” she told fans at the series’ New York Comic Con panel in October of her acting stint as Carol, Yahoo TV reported.

She then shared that her line “Look at the flowers” from the show’s Season 4 Episode 14 “The Grove” – where her character shot the emotionally damaged Lizzie (Brighton Sharbino) to death – is what people shout at her all the time now.

Here’s what a fan wrote on the thread, “So who will we see play Heath from the comics?”:

“So with The Walking Dead coming back soon was just thinking about who would play Heath from the comics, who is most likely to turn up in episode 10 or 11. He’s one of my favourite characters from Alexandria and I haven’t really seen anything about him recently. Also who could be playing characters like Doug, also, it might a little bit early for Jesus but who could play him? Hopefully we see a Bryan Cranston Doug, but we probably won’t. Besides the whole time I’d be thinking he’s Walter White.”

He seems to be referencing Alexandria leader Douglas Monroe with the “Doug” talk, but a few fans responded with ideas for Heath:

• I always thought Brandon Jay McLaren would be a good Heath. He’s on the show Graceland right now so I really doubt it, but it’d be cool.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1564963/?ref_=tt_cl_t4

• Maybe Jamie Hector, if he grows out his hair? Certainly wouldn’t be the first time they’d use someone from The Wire

• Since they seem to have a habit of casting Wire alums, I’d cast my vote for Michael B. Jordan.
 

Other fans went off topic with thoughts on who should play Paul “Jesus” Monroe, who doesn’t show up in the comic until a bit later and probably won’t be in Season 5 at all. He’s too big a character to cram into the second half before his time, or so we’re thinking.

With a show as mammoth as The Walking Dead, it’s bound to have its fair share of juicy behind-the-scenes secrets, and unfortunately for AMC, with such a dedicated fan base – as The Walking Dead fans are – secrets don’t stay secret for long!

Next month more secrets are bound to spill out like the guts of a freshly killed walker, when many of the show’s cast members show up in Chicago for the next Walker Stalker Con on February 21st and 22nd. While those of you lucky enough to have tickets may already be planning which questions to ask the stars, those without tickets shouldn’t panic because Moviepilot has you covered! We’re offering the chance for two lucky fans to win a double pass each to Walker Stalker Con Chicago, simply by answering our question at the bottom of this article! Guests at the con include: Steven Yeun (Glenn), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Melissa McBride (Carol), Chandler Riggs (Carl), Emma Kinney (Beth), Michael Cudlitz (Abraham), Josh McDermitt (Eugene), and more! With all of those guests I’m sure you’ll be eager to ask them for new secrets about the upcoming episodes, but before then check out these 5 secrets that have already leaked from The Walking Dead camp:

Secret 1: Carl’s stunt doubles are more suited to ‘Carla’ than ‘Carl’

In a show like The Walking Dead there are countless action packed and dramatic scenes. But while the show’s stars do a lot of the hard work, there is also a team of highly skilled stunt doubles on hand for the more dangerous scenes.

Warning; Possible spoilers for both The Walking Dead TV show and comic series ahead!

With The Walking Dead returning to screens very soon (about time!), there’s no doubt that you’ve all watched the trailers for Season 5b multiple times. On the odd chance you haven’t yet seen it, here’s the first one again:

The most recent trailer can be watched over here, but it was after watching the first season 5b trailer again that I really got thinking about the mysterious gates that Rick, Michonne and Tyreese are spotted running from.

Where could it be?

There are quite a few theories about where the gates shown in the trailer could be, though none have really stood out as a huge possibility, until now.

First thoughts were that the gates could have been to Noah’s walled community in Richmond. Virginia, or possibly the Alexandria Safe-Zone. However both of these theories have major weaknesses because of the sheer distance between the group’s location in the mid-season finale (Atlanta) and both Richmond and Alexandria – over 500 miles. That’s a long distance to travel, whether on foot or by car under normal circumstances, but with the ever present threat of walker hordes it seems unlikely they will be anywhere close, at least for the majority of Season 5b. Instead, I’m going to throw out the possibility that the gates could be to Wiltshire Estates.

Here at ComicBook.com, we spend a great deal of time scrutinizing the similarities and differences between TV shows, movies and their comic book counterparts.

Well, CineFix have set up a video that takes a look at The Walking Dead‘s first season…and find what the differences were between it and the comics on which it’s ostensibly based.

Check it out, along with its official description from the Cinefix YouTube page, below.

The Walking Dead’s mid-season premiere is coming up soon, and to celebrate, we’re taking look back. All the way back to the comics that inspired the show. We’ll look at the first volumes of Robert Kirkman’s comic, side-by-side with the first season of the AMC show, and tell you: “What’s the Difference?”

A lot changed in adapting the Image Comics ongoing graphic novel series for the small screen. From major character changes (Hi, Merle and Daryl!) to plot tweaks, we’ll go through every difference between Season One of The Walking Dead, and the comics that inspired them – get ready to get informed!

Have you read The Walking Dead Comics, or are you only familiar with the show? Did The Walking Dead show inspire you to pick up the source material? Are you looking forward to the upcoming midseason premiere on AMC? Did you enjoy our exhaustive rundown? Do you have other bits of The Walking Dead trivia you’d like to share?

Here’s a portion of the TV Guide interview, directly following the section about Daryl’s grief:

Gimple does point out that these instances of sorrow and misery will be countered by unexpected periods of levity, specifically involving Carol (Melissa McBride). “Some moments are fun and even a little funny,” Gimple says. “I’m not saying that Carol is turning into Zooey Deschanel from New Girl, but there are moments of lightness that are still mixed in with some badassery.”

Interesting! Carol has always had a sharp sense of humor. (Screw around, Pookie, etc.) But Tara, Eugene, and Abraham have been given the bulk of what could be considered funny lines, at least in in the past year. It sounds like there’s a lot of dark material coming directly ahead when Season 5 returns, and then we head into some comic book territory, but it’s good to hear that Carol won’t be kept on the sidelines, she’ll still have some moments of lightness amid her usual “badassery.”

What do you think of this funny business involving Carol?

As Tara on The Walking Dead, Alanna Masterson is the kind of person to whom people want to reveal things (well, at least Eugene). But we got Masterson to do the talking when she stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch the video and read the transcript below to find out about her intense binge-watching habits, the movie her older brothers (including actors Danny, Christopher, and Jordan Masterson) encouraged her to watch too young, and when she plans to upgrade from a Hermione wand.
