The Walking Dead Season 6 Postermore big

“The Walking Dead” Season 6 is one of the much awaited TV Series of AMC.  The plot of “TWD” Season 6 Episode 1 and 2 has been disclosed and it says someone is seriously hurt. In addition, the trailer premiere is set on July 10.

Design N Trend exposed that one of the main characters of “The Walking Dead” would get severely hurt in Season 6. But the question that was most asked was- is the injury fatal? Has the character been bitten by a walker?

To restate the recent article that contained spoilers of Season 6, Michael Cudlitz who played Abraham in this American horror drama television series was filming a scene wherein he found a group of military walker who were pierced through a fence. Seeing one of them carrying an RPG on its back, he tried to get the weapon. But the scenario got unpleasant when the walker tried to assault him by flailing his arm. The fence apparently started to wobble and bend. At that moment, an onlooker heard Abraham screamed. Abraham then fell back with his hands positioned perilously close to where the walker was still biting irately. That violent conflict ended with a well placed headshot to the opponent by an unfamiliar character as Abraham was pulled off camera.

Warning: Possible spoilers for The Walking Dead TV show so far, if you are not caught up, do not read! Definite spoilers for The Walking Dead comics, if you are planning to or have not finished reading them, then do not read this! Spoilers for the comics could possibly divulge the future of the TV show, read at your own risk!

As any fan of The Walking Dead does, I would like to speculate on the characters that I think will die next season. I will base my choices on a mixture of who died in the comics, my personal theories/hopes for the show, and pure logic. With no way to really tell who will die next season until the show premieres again, you should all know that these are just my current theories, and that I shouldn’t be blamed if I guess that your favorite character will die! So, enough of the warning label, let’s get started.

Glenn Rhee

Why I think he’ll die: Not only does Glenn die in the comics, but The Wolves were introduced in season 5. Some of you may know that the leader of The Wolves, Negan, kills Glenn. Even though Glenn is one of my favorite characters, things aren’t adding up in his favor. The only thing that could save Glenn at this point would be a decision from Robert Kirkman himself, saying he wants to keep the character.

Everybody loves Reg! I believe this rings true for The Walking Dead fans as we watched Mr. Steve Coulter bring the role of Reg Monroe to screen in Season 5. Unfortunately, this fan favorite met his demise in the finale at the clumsy hands of a drunken Pete.  So, I thought it would be a great idea to check in with Steve to interview him about his portrayal of Reg and find out what has been keeping him busy since his time on The Walking Dead. Once #TWDFamily, always, #TWDFamily — so let’s take a moment to catch up with everyone’s favorite cardigan-clad professor!

Everyone loved your portrayal of “Reg Monroe”. He was so likeable! Were you given a lot of specifics about the character’s personality or did you have some freedom there?

That’s so very nice of you to say. Actually, the character was very evident in the writing. His directness, his kindness. It was very clear from the script that this was a man who didn’t act out of fear, that he was kind and open-minded, and that he didn’t have any hidden agenda. It was very refreshing to play a character like that.

How long did you have to keep your role a secret and how difficult was that for you?

‘The Walking Dead’ never shies away from gore and intense moments. After all, there’s a reason why AMC’s hit series has such a massive following. Every series though has had its bad days, but ‘The Walking Dead’ is popular for having more good episodes than bad. Needless to say, narrowing them down wasn’t easy!

In the following slides, we’re counting down The Walking Dead’s top 10 episodes. These are the episodes that have stuck in fans minds the longest, the ones we go to bed thinking about how awesome/heart-breaking they were. These top 10 episodes delivered huge, plot/life changing moments in the series. They left us cheering, crying, grieving, angry, with our jaws on the floor, or a little bit of each.

From the episode that started it all, to controversial ones that made headlines – up ahead are Hidden Remote’s top 10 picks.

Oh, and of course there are major SPOILERS ahead…don’t read if you are not caught up to The Walking Dead, the following episodes are from several seasons.

Rick Grimes The Walking Dead

“The Walking Dead” may not have a reputation for being an inspiring show, buts its message of perseverance has spread throughout the AMC series. Lead actor Andrew Lincoln’s protagonist, Rick Grimes, has said quite a few uplifting things over the course of the show. Here are five Rick Grimes quotes from season 5 and beyond that inspired us all.

1) “Things don’t get better because you want them to. Starting now, we have to live in the real world. If you don’t fight, you die.” (Season 5 Episode 5)

Despite the fact that Rick said this one after trying to murder an Alexandria resident with his bare hands, it certainly has a ring of truth in the zombie apocalypse and in real life. It basically reminds us that happiness or success isn’t something that comes easily. In Grimes’ mind, you have to fight for it. This mindset has been accurate throughout all of “The Walking Dead’s” 5 seasons. The survivors fought to save the prison from attack, they risked their lives to make it to Alexandria, and, even as far back as season 2, they battled with Hershel’s ideology to reach safety. In sum, happiness is hard work.

2) “We can still come back. We’re not too far gone. We get to come back. I know we all can change.” (Season 4 Episode 8)

The Walking Dead‘s sixth season is still a few months off but the zombie slayers will be assembling at San Diego Comic Con in less than a week.

But what can we expect from The Walking Dead‘s San Diego Comic Con panel? We all suspect the series’ beloved cast of Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, Ross Marquand, Michael Cudlitz and more will be on hand, but will there be any surprises? Here’s what we expect at the panel.

New Cast Members

We’ve learned about several new cast members who will be playing key characters from The Walking Dead‘s comic book series but for the most part, we’re yet to hear from them. It’s likely the new cast members will assemble on stage and discuss their experience with the production so far but more importantly, reveal who they are playing.

In the off-season we have learned Corey Hawkins of the upcoming Straight Outta Compton will be playing supply runner turned zombie herder, Heath. We’ve also learned of a casting call fitting the description of Dr. Denise Cloyd from the comics. These characters and probably others will be introduced at Comic Con but don’t hold your breathe for Negan – it’s probably not happening this soon.

Daryl Dixon gets all the lady love in Season 6.

At least, that’s the impression we’re getting from this fun new behind-the-scenes set picture Norman Reedus just shared from the set of “The Walking Dead.”

In the pic, which he posted on Instagram page Friday (July 3), Reedus is getting some well-deserved attention from both Carol (Melissa McBride) and Tara (Alanna Masterson).

Only, last time when he was caught planting one on Danai Gurira — thus sending us into an immediate wormhole of Dichonne love championing — there was no smoochy action involved in this one.

Instead, it looks like Melissa’s cutting Reedus down to size there with her fingers while Alanna’s digging for some green gold in the shot. Ha! Good times.

Since we’re fully expecting the next season to go full throttle with the intensity and all the dreeeeeeeeead, it’s kind of nice to see the cast being playful with each other in between takes like this.

The first season of The Walking Dead features one of the most idyllic locations of the series. The Bellwood Quarry is where scenes from five episodes were shot, including the one pictured above in which Shane, Daryl, and Rick have some guy time.

Halfway down to the water.

The quarry is currently on track to become a 1.9 billion gallon reservoir, and the locations used in The Walking Dead will be at the bottom of all that water. The water currently in the quarry is from rain and runoff, and is filtered through the surrounding granite.

The bottom of the quarry is where most of the scenes from The Walking Dead were filmed. It is beautiful, and tranquil, and at 10 a.m. in late June, really freaking hot.

The contrasts in shape and color left by blasting and mining the rock are themselves mesmerizing works of art.

It is difficult to comprehend that the beauty and serenity of the quarry are a result of excavation by humans and machines.

In addition to the planned reservoir, Bellwood Quarry and the surrounding land are slated for an enormous park. It would be incorporated into the Westside Beltline, and be the largest recreation area in the city of Atlanta.

The Governor was not a very well-liked character on The Walking Dead.  Much of that can be attributed to the great acting skills of David Morrissey.

Morrissey is no stranger to acting.  In fact, his acting credits go all the back to 1983 when he landed a role on the TV miniseries “One Summer”.  Since then, we’ve seen him on hit shows like Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, and most recently, the CBS drama Extant.

Extant offers a very different challenge to David Morrissey than The Walking Dead did.  The methods of creating the great visual effects on the two programs very differently according to an article on the Express.co.uk website where they spoke with Morrissey:

“The guys that play the walkers, the zombies, they’re right there. There’s very little CGI in that show, it’s all about great make-up and what those actors bring to it. So there’s less green screen and post-production whereas on this there was quite a lot. So I’m very excited to see [Extant].”

The Governor, The Walking Dead – AMC

Differences in filming technique weren’t the only challenges facing David Morrissey when tackling projects.  Transitioning from an actor in the U.K. to being recognized in the United States presented an obstacle that many stars can’t overcome.

Yet, I learned of him when I saw him on an episode of Doctor Who in 2008.  He played a man who thought he was the doctor until he encountered the actual Doctor himself.  The mass appeal of Doctor Who helped David Morrissey cross over into America.

That image above (click to enlarge) is a shot of the back cover of Ian Malcom’s book as seen in Jurassic World, via the film’s official Twitter account. In addition to that, this edition of Sequel Bits features:

  • Jason Clarke talks about his initial reaction to a Terminator Genisys plot twist,
  • A new Fear the Walking Dead teaser has dialogue, but no zombies,
  • Bette Midler stumps for Hocus Pocus 2 during a live show,
  • Marlon Wayans threatens to make White Chicks 2,
  • and there’s a behind the scenes video for Sharknado 3.

There’s a bit new character change in Terminator Genisys — one that has been spoiled in posters and trailers, but which is still a big deal int he film. If you’ve managed to avoid this so far, be aware that spoilers for Terminator are ahead, even if they’re the same spoilers that have been used as official marketing.

Jason Clarke told CinemaBlend that plot turn was surprising even to him, when he first read the script.

What the fuck is going on here? What did they send me? I don’t want to play the villain. [But then, after reflection] For me it was, yeah, you go, ok, I’m the villain. I’m the protagonist. I’m the predator. I’m the chaser, but then when it resides, what I thought about it and read it again, John’s at the heart of the story and the problem of the machines, of technology, you know.

Among the stars on the red carpet for Ant-Man‘s World Premiere in Hollywood on Monday was Talking Dead and @midnight host, Chris Hardwick.

Hardwick stopped to chat with ComicBook.com about Ant-Man, some Marvel hero hypotheticals, the upcoming season of The Walking Dead, and a few too many laughs. Join us in the video below.

 

Hardwick told us he’s particularly excited for Ant-Man because of the precedent it sets in the comic book fan community. “If you understand what’s happening in our little subculture, it’s one that we’ve been waiting for for a long time and I think one that not until a few years ago people even thought, ‘Oh, this could be a movie.'” Hardwick makes a valid point. Before Iron Man launched the Marvel brand in 2008, comic book movies were a much more rare commodity. At the time, the X-Men franchise and Nolan’s Dark Knight saga were the hot items in comic book movies, but here we are in 2015 getting to watch Ant-Man shrink on the big screen. “I’m just excited to actually get to see it,” Hardwick added.

The conversation quickly journeyed into Walking Dead territory. The professional Walking Dead recap host dove into an analysis of which Marvel hero would be the best suited for a zombie apocalypse and drew from his Marvel Zombies knowledge to help his argument. “I can’t figure out, as Wolverine, would your healing powers cure you of whatever the virus is or would you just be an unbeatable zombie?” Hardwick debated, concluding “I feel like Wolverine would just be the best because the claws… He has six Michonnes at his side.”

Monty Simons of Stunts Unlimited and The Walking Dead stunt coordinator took the time to make two girls’ visit to the little town of Hampton, GA extra special and memorable. One girl is mom and the other is her precious girl with cerebral palsy. I happen to be that mom and the daughter is my Kasey.

The two of us ventured down to the small, quaint town of Hampton, GA in hopes of catching a glimpse of cameras, lighting equipment, and the general buzz that goes along with filming the show. I was not there as a blogger, but simply there as a fan. We were not interested in spoilers or interfering in any way. We simply wanted to “be” there and experience the amazing high energy of the #TWDFamily in action. And let me tell you, they work SO hard!

While scoping out a spot for lunch, we happened upon a familiar face walking in the same direction — it was stunt coordinator Monty Simons! We politely asked if a photo might be possible and told him how much our family enjoys the “Making of . . .” behind the scenes videos in which he is frequently featured. He generously obliged and we were thrilled! We parted ways and scoped out lunch locations.

We found a lunch spot and were ready to order when Monty walked through the restaurant door announcing that he’d been looking all over for us. For us?? Yes, indeed! He was bringing Kasey her very own The Walking Dead Season 6 Stunts Unlimited hat! He autographed it for her as well. We showed him her speech generating device, which she used to tell him “thank you”.

Fear the Walking DeadYOUTUBESCREENSHOT

AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead”

The excitement is getting more intense for AMC’s upcoming small screen offering, “Fear The Walking Dead,” with the arrival of new image stills and a teaser video which offered some fresh perspectives about the cast of “The Walking Dead” spinoff series.

The report from Entertainment Weekly showcased a handful of exclusive new photos, with the first featuring Alycia Debnam-Carey’s character. Alicia is seen standing among the empty bleachers of her high school. She looks like she’s wondering where everybody is. Has the apocalypse already begun by this time?

The next pair of photos meanwhile shows Madison (Kim Dickens) and her boyfriend, Travis (Cliff Curtis) looking a bit so pensive.

Executive producer Dave Erickson said that the characters of the show will be introduced going on with their normal, daily lives before the proliferation of the undead beings.

“Ultimately, it’s a family drama,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “One of the things that Robert [Kirkman] and I discussed from the very beginning was, we’re starting a little earlier in the apocalypse.”

“And what that allowed us to do in the pilot and season 1 is establish our core family, establish the problems and the conflicts that they have, and really let that be the initial world that we live in.”

“And we layer in the onset of the apocalypse, we layer in our first walkers, but it’s really an effort to exacerbate the problems that already exist with Kim Dickens’ character and Cliff Curtis’ character and their sort of dysfunctional blended family. It’s really filtering the apocalypse through that.”

Tension between Deputy Rick Grimes and Morgan Jones. The “death” of Sgt. Abraham Ford. A bolder plotline with more risks and surprise twists. These are some of the developments to look forward to when Season 6 of The Walking Dead begins airing on October 11, 2015. 

“I think the writing is getting stronger and stronger. I’m thrilled,” actor Andrew Lincoln, who plays Grimes in the American horror TV series, told Collider at the 41st Annual Saturn Awards, according to various entertainment news sources. “I thought that last season, Rick’s journey was some of the finest and most complex that I’ve had to attempt. Scott (Gimple) and the writers’ team are magnificent. As long as they’re pushing us in the direction they’re doing, I think we’re gonna open up the world in a way we’ve never ever experienced before.”

Asked about his character and Jones, played by Lennie James, Lincoln quipped: “There will be tension between these two characters, definitely.” 

The sports and entertainment news website Fansided also reported the discovery of some set pictures and details hinting at the death of, or serious injury to, Ford. According to the website, the character atttempts to climb a fence hanging off a bridge and tries to pull a rocket-propelled grenade off the back of a zombie. In the ensuing struggle, Ford screams and collapses, hands and arms within the zombie’s reach.

Before we get a first-look trailer of The Walking Dead’s return this fall, images from the set have been revealed, and it sure looks like danger is lurking.

Daryl, Glenn and Maggie are the subjects of these photos, and they don’t look friendly. Given what happened at the end of season 5, you can understand why they’d be on edge. Glenn has fired a round at someone—but who? Maggie, meanwhile, has her pistol drawn, while Daryl is doing his usual nonchalant cool guy look.

With Comic-Con set to kick off next week, we’re expecting plenty of new information to drop for The Walking Dead (and Fear the Walking Dead, too). How does the group rebound from the events in Alexandria? We’ll find out soon enough.
