Season 6 of The Walking Dead kicks off October 11 on AMC, taking us back to the Alexandria Safe Zone where Rick is (likely) still standing over Pete’s bloody corpse, Morgan and Daryl open-mouthed at his side. Fans are bracing themselves for some serious drama when everyone’s favorite post-apocalyptic show returns, but let’s not jump the gun: actor Lennie James has gone on the record warning fans not to take Season 6’s trailer too literally in the face of speculation regarding Rick and co.’s future in the Safe Zone. That said, co-star Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne, did recently hint at trouble between the pair when new episodes debut this fall. Speaking to Access Hollywood at Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con Party on July 11, the actress suggested that her character might have a little trouble adjusting to Morgan’s return.

Can Morgan be trusted?

Gurira commented: “When we think about the last time these two characters met… Michonne was weirded out. Michonne was like: “Who is this guy? He’s crazier than me and this is weird.'”… So she’s kind of like: “He’s back in our lives and he does this weird thing to Rick.” So she’s kind of like on this weird path with him… because she doesn’t know who he is. What she remembers is not something safe or something comfortable.” Showrunner Scott Gimple has confirmed that Season 6 will feature multiple flashbacks, including one full episode told entirely through this medium, which leaves us thinking that Morgan’s backstory is likely to be explored next season. Will this be enough to put Michonne’s mind at rest, or will her loyalty to Rick prove her undoing if and when Morgan takes a stand against his former ally? Let us know if you’re excited for Season 6 of The Walking Dead!

(This contains some *POSSIBLE SPOILERS* for Season 6)

If you have been reading a lot of my articles lately, you know that I’m pretty gassed up and ready to go for Season 6 of The Walking Dead. In fact, I have dreams about the show consistently, I’ve already got Fear the Walking Dead set up on my DVR, I’ve been re-watching on Netflix, and the bottom line is that I might not be able to make it all the way until October 12th. It’s just too far away.

So, when I came across this photo on Reddit, I had to make an article about it to see what you all think. Check it out…


Would bringing in the Hilltop community and Negan some time in Season 6 lead to some of the best potential episodes of the entire series? I doubt they’ll follow the comics to a tee, but I have a feeling they might unveil the Hilltop Colony towards the end of the season.

A Reddit user, SimplyMe94, points out that this could be the proper time for an unveiling:

“There’s barely any material between No Way Out and A Larger World. What little material there is, such as the coup, looks like it’ll be done early on in the first few episodes, going by the trailer.”


Talk about an epic cliffhanger if they can get to this point in the show (and maybe deviate slightly from the comics) towards the end of Season 6. Season 7 would have even more anticipation connected to it than this one… and that seems damn near impossible.

Fear Begins Here!



Welcome to your online companion!


The Walking Dead’s companion series, Fear the Walking Dead, begins in less than a month! As fans waiting for the series to start, this is your companion! All the news and information we have at Undead Walking, continuously updated to keep you aware and excited about the newest walkers on the block! Everywhere you see words in bold, there are connected articles with more detailed information.

So get ready to meet the cast and get to know the characters. Find out dates, times and other important information.  And read all about what our writers think about the new companion series. Do you have goosebumps?


Robert Kirkman talks about Fear!


If your answer was, “not yet.” read what Robert Kirkman wrote in an open letter about Fear–that should bring those goosebumps.

“The Walking Dead has always been about the characters” Kirkman wrote. “Now we get to introduce you to Madison, Travis, Alicia, Nick, Liza, Chris, Daniel, Ofelia and well… the cast continues to grow each episode… and yes… we do lose a few along the way.  But where the “exciting” and “new” comes in… is that these people have their own experiences and reasons to survive. They’re complicated, real characters who will not be dealing with the undead the same way.  They’ll learn new things, they’ll find new tools, they’ll learn faster or slower but what we end up with is a very, VERY different show… set in a world we LOVE exploring as much as we’d all NEVER want to live there.”

Daredevil” Season one showrunner Steven DeKnight isn’t returning for Season 2 – much to the chagrin of fans. DeKnight was already slated to write and direct a feature film and his schedule would not allow him to move forward with the Netflix series.

DeKnight made an appearance at today’s TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour to field questions about the first season and assure reporters that Matt Murdock is in capable hands with Season 2 co-showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez.

The Walking Dead” star Jon Bernthal is set to join the “Daredevil” cast as The Punisher for the second season and DeKnight — a long-time Punisher fan — says he was heartbroken to discover that he would not be able to bring that character to life.

When asked if The Punisher’s introduction might reach the levels of violence that the 2008 Lexi Alexander-directed film “Punisher: War Zone” did, DeKnight laughed and said, “I don’t know. That was pretty violent.”

Then reflecting on the idea that “Daredevil” is a spectacularly violent show DeKnight added, “I don’t think ‘Daredevil’ is as violent as something like ‘The Walking Dead’, which is a show I love. For example, if a man were to get his head crushed in a car door on ‘The Walking Dead’ you would see it. We didn’t want to go that far.”

It has been frowned upon to use the term “illegal immigrant” for awhile now, with The Associated Press dropping the phrase from their stylebook back in 2013. However, the usage still persists — and that’s where Twitterbots come in:

“That term, ‘illegal immigrant,’ hangs in the air, permeates the conversation in social networks like Twitter and Facebook, and ends up in daily conversations at work, at school, and at home,” immigration activist and filmmaker Jose Antonio Vargas told Fusion. Fusion has since created a Twitterbot, @DroptheIBot, which automatically tweets back at users who write “illegal immigrant” in their posts. Fusion explains:

[In] a modest effort to help America shed some of its historical baggage, we built a Twitter bot that replies to some of the people who tweet the words “illegal immigrant,” letting them know that in 2015, the preferred terms are “undocumented immigrant” or “unauthorized immigrant.” To avoid spamming people, the bot only runs once every ten minutes, and it never replies to the same user twice. [Fusion]

Unfortunately, many of recipients of @DroptheIBot’s messages aren’t pleased:

Good thing bots don’t have feelings. Jeva Lange

SAN DIEGO, CA – JULY 10: (L-R) Producer Dave Alpert, producer Greg Nicotero and actor Andrew Lincoln speak onstage at AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ panel during Comic-Con International 2015 at the San Diego Convention Center on July 10, 2015 in San Diego, California. (Photo : Kevin Winter/gettyimages)

There are rumors that Morales, the “family man” from the first season of “The Walking Dead” might make a return to the show.

Morales was the “family man” during the first season and while everyone else made their way to Atlanta, he trekked to Birmingham together with his wife and two kids away from Rick’s group.

Like Us on Facebook

Comicbook.com published an article speculating the return of Morales in “The Walking Dead.” According to the website the speculation for his return has been built up several times but the fans see no better timing for his return other than season six.

A promotional image of Morales spread online a few months ago but others believe it was linked to the companion series “Fear The Walking Dead.” However, fans can’t help but speculate that it might be a giveaway since there is a caption that indicated, “NOT DEAD.”

“Morgan is a certified bad-a–, now. He carries that stick, has ninja moves, and will probably wind up saving some survivors with his abilities. Remind you of anyone from the comics? How about Paul “Jesus” Monroe? If Morgan is going to be the ninja-warrior replacement of Jesus, – which is only a theory at this point – who is going to fill in his connections to the Hilltop Community and other civilized groups? Morales, that’s who,” the article suggested.

The Walking Dead has inspired artists to use their talents to create tributes to their favorite show and its characters. I’ve highlighted several so far for our website. Lucia contacted me on Twitter to let me know about Ashlee, a great digital artist, whom I highlighted soon after.

Then one day I saw a great picture of Rick on Twitter and I noticed the profile picture and name. I thought, isn’t that the person who told me about another artist? And she’s an artist! How humble! So I contacted her, and here we are.

Lucia is from Italy. She is 34 years old and a former set and costume designer who decided about 5 years ago to focus on illustration. While she loves to use traditional media such as Acrylic, pencils, inks or watercolours, and still uses it from time to time, she has started working more with digital painting as it allows her to work more quickly and takes up less space in her apartment. She continues to use her sketchbooks.

Lucia’s answer about her love for drawing Walking Dead things was very interesting:

I like to try to “catch” the attitude of the characters. After I spent years focusing my work on designing static structures and clothing I’ve discovered my passion for the expressivity of the human body and how complex a character could be. Okay, let’s face it: I love to draw pretty stuff, HA!

Fear The Walking Dead hasn’t aired a single episode, but is already expanding its second season. 

AMC hasn’t aired a single episode of their new series Fear The Walking Dead, but executives must love what they’re seeing already. After ordering six episodes for the spinoff/companion series to The Walking Dead, AMC will be bringing back Fear The Walking Dead in 2016 with an expanded episode order.

Greg Nicotero teased that the second season of Fear The Walking Dead would feature 15 additional episodes aside from the six that were previewed at Comic-Con.

We’ll start shooting the first of fifteen episodes for season two sometime in November or December, so I think the plan is to have a zombie TV show on 52 weeks a year. In The Walking Dead we had six episodes for our first season and I think we did twelve or thirteen in our second season.

This is great news for fans of The Walking Dead who are looking forward to the release of the new show. No one has seen enough of the new series to accurately judge how everything will go down, but so far the buzz has implied that things will be amazing once we finally dig into things.

For fans of more character driven storylines, like myself — who has been hard on The Walking Dead — this could be the series we’ve all be waiting for. Of course, we could trade standing around aimlessly in a field for an entire season with standing around for a whole season in a school — which is worse because everyone hates schools.

Kevin Durand

Last September, website Nuke The Fridge reported that Kevin Durand has been approached to play the comic book villain Negan on “The Walking Dead.” But in his recent Reddit AMA, the 41-year-old Canadian actor clarified that the role has not been offered to him.

“A lot of people seem to think I’ve been offered the role, and that’s not true,” Durand wrote. “But ‘The Walking Dead’ fans have been approaching me asking about Negan for quite a while. I think he’s an incredible character, what an awesome ride that would be.”

“However at this point in time, shooting ‘The Strain’ and ‘Vikings‘ takes up most of my year,” he explained. “[But] if they didn’t bring Negan in for like another three years then I would be honored [to play him], I’m a huge ‘Walking Dead’ fan. And I’m honored that the ‘Walking Dead’ fans have me in mind, but at this point in time, the Vampocalypse is keeping me in Fet (his character on ‘The Strain’).Really busy trying to save the world right now.”

While there’s no word yet on when exactly Negan will be introduced to the show, “The Walking Dead” executive producer Robert Kirkman confirmed in an interview with MTV News in April 2014 that bringing the evil comic book character to the TV adaptation is definitely part of their future plans.

You remember Morales. He was The Walking Dead‘s family man from the first season. He, his wife, and their two kids strayed from from Rick’s group, heading to Birmingham, when everyone else trekked to the CDC in Atlanta. So will he come back for The Walking Dead’s sixth season? I think so.

The speculation of his return has built up, settled down, built up again, and so on… But season six seems like the most likely window for Morales to return if he is ever going to.

First of all, a promotional image of Morales popped up a few months ago which people associated with the companion series, Fear The Walking Dead and Juan G. Pareja’s name was tossed into the IMDb page for the series. Now, the IMDb page can’t be held accountable with 100% certainty (and his name has since been removed), but if the  promotional image of the actor in character was indeed real and new, he must have some involvement with one of AMC’s series and it is probably not Fear. Plus, it indicates he’s “NOT DEAD.”

How would he fit into the story, though? Well, let’s look at the comics.

In the comics, Morgan is not a major player at Alexandria. Morgan reaches the Safe-Zone with the group and becomes a chef, but ironically after becomes zombie chow in the “No Way Out” storyline, which the Walking Dead’s sixth season could likely adapt. Will Morgan meet his doom so quickly when the show returns? Probably not. He does seem to be a focal point of the story. Plus, he and Rick have a lot of unfinished business.

Baby on the way! Alanna Masterson is pregnant with her first child. The ‘Walking Dead’ star showed off her baby bump in a sweet Instagram pic to announce the exciting news.

Congratulations are in order for Alanna MastersonThe Walking Dead actress, 27, is expecting her first child with her boyfriend, photographer Brick Stowell. Alanna announced the news in a beautiful Instagram pic, cradling her very apparent baby bump. See the pic here!

“Guess what…” Alanna captioned the pic of herself displaying her baby bump while wearing a chic white dress and sunglasses. So exciting! Brick also posted a pic of Alanna showing off her bump in a sexy bikini next to him, and wrote: “Baby season.” There’s no hiding it any longer!

Alanna, who plays Tara on the hit AMC show, had been strategically covering up her growing bump in her pics before. Whether she used a soda cup or a book to cover up her belly, she totally kept it a secret! Perhaps the biggest clue before her reveal was her big appetite! She posted a pic of her food on July 24 and wrote: “Oh boy, do I love to eat.”

While fans are over the moon happy for Alanna, some are concerned what this will mean for Tara’s fate on the zombie drama. It’s a possibility that her character could be killed off so she can focus on her pregnancy — or she’ll remain filming while pregnant and will conceal her bump. Let’s not forget that when her costar Sonequa Martin-Green was pregnant with her first child during season five they hid her baby bump!

Fans of The Walking Dead just can’t let go of Morales.

Back in January, there was speculation that the character would make an appearance on the companion series to the hit AMC zombie survival drama now titled Fear The Walking Dead.  In fact, the hope went so far that Juan Gabriel Pareja (the actor who plays Morales) was listed on the show’s IMDB listing.

It turns out Pareja’s name was removed from the Fear The Walking Dead cast list, but since then there has been even more chatter about Morales popping up in the future.

Much of this speculation leads from a post that Pareja posted to his Twitter account when preparing for Walker Stalker Con back in October of 2014.  Here is the picture that has everyone both excited and confused at the same time:

Now, an article from ComicBook.com brings back some way that Morales could be logically placed into the equation for a return during The Walking Dead’s sixth season.  Here is what they said:

“Morgan is a certified bad-a–, now. He carries that stick, has ninja moves, and will probably wind up saving some survivors with his abilities. Remind you of anyone from the comics? How about Paul “Jesus” Monroe? If Morgan is going to be the ninja-warrior replacement of Jesus, – which is only a theory at this point – who is going to fill in his connections to the Hilltop Community and other civilized groups? Morales, that’s who.”

Walking Dead Season 5 Noah's Journey

Everybody Hates Chris, but everyone on The Walking Dead loves Tyler James Williams.

Williams headlined The CW’s Everybody Hates Chris for four seasons and he recently had a starring role in the movie Dear White People. But Walking Dead fans will remember Williams as Noah, one of the new survivors who was introduced during the fifth season. Noah was an original creation who didn’t have a counterpart in the Walking Dead comic book by Robert Kirkman and artist Charlie Adlard.

Noah was also given one of the most brutal and memorable exits of any character on the series. It was remarkably gruesome, even for The Walking Dead!

Ahead of The Walking Dead: The Complete Fifth Season’s release next month on Blu-ray and DVD, Anchor Bay Entertainment has provided CraveOnline with an exclusive clip from “Noah’s Journey,” which is one of several featurettes included on the five disc set. In the video, Walking Dead executive producers Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, and Scott M. Gimple share their thoughts on Noah and his impact on the series alongside cast members Steven Yeun and Josh McDermitt.

The Walking Dead: The Complete Fifth Season will be released on August 25. The Blu-ray and DVD sets will include three hours of bonus features, including additional deleted scenes, and more behind-the-scenes featurettes. The Walking Dead Season 6 is slated to premiere in October, while the spinoff/companion series, Fear The Walking Dead will premiere next month on AMC.

Happy Monday, undead fans. It looks like we can expect “lots of flashbacks” from Season 6 of The Walking Dead, with showrunner Scott Gimple recently promising a full episode told entirely through flashbacks when AMC’s wildly popular show returns. That’s probably just as well for Rick, who risks being – shall we say – somewhat misunderstood by former comrade Morgan following his shock return at the end of Season 5’s finale episode, “Conquer”. Following Reg’s murder at the hands of a drunken Pete, Jessie’s abusive husband and Alexandria’s resident surgeon, Rick was given permission by Safe Zone leader Deanna to take matters into his own hands, duly going on to execute Pete in full view of the majority of the camp’s residents. However, despite hints that the cast of The Walking Dead will have to choose sides ahead of the war rumoured to erupt in Season 6, actor Lennie James recently cautioned fans not to take this season’s trailer as gospel.

Speaking to Access Hollywood, James declared: “I can tell you that a lot of the trailer isn’t necessarily literal… [so] it’s about the themes and the theme that Morgan brings to Alexandria and the theme of, you know, the ethos that Morgan has, which is that all of life is precious and he’s no longer gonna kill people any more. But when he arrives, the man he thinks he’s gonna join up with is putting a bullet in somebody’s head. So the themes that those two men are carrying are going to run through this season.” So if Morgan isn’t ‘literally’ talking about “stopping Rick” , what on earth is he trying to convince Deanna to do? Frankly, our money’s still on a split within the Alexandrians next season. The only question? Whether Rick and co., Morgan included, stand united against Deanna, or whether the Safe Zone’s latest arrival emerges as a potential threat to the Ricktatorship. Let us know how you think things are going to go down next season.

Scott Gimple revealed at Comic-Con that there will be flashbacks in season 6 of The Walking Dead. Could there be a flashback to Father Gabriel when his flock came calling? That’s a short flashback I’m hoping to see.

The padre’s version of the story--I always lock the doors!— seemed to allow the group to accept him, at the time, after his confession, at least knowing now what someone thought he would burn for, and what he seemed to be hiding.

And the group’s acceptance of him motivated Eugene to later come clean with his own confession. But fans have never been kind about poor Gabe!

I’ve written about him several times. I’m pretty sure I’m the only one on the planet who feels sorry for him. I don’t know where the writers are going with his character. They’ve obviously set him up to be disliked and to be seen as a coward, and most recently a betrayer.

But they are the writers. A flashback to the scene at the church when he kept the doors locked might be just what fans need to see what happened, and feel what happened. Not just imagine or hear about it.

The one declarative sentence–he locked out his congregation–is pretty damning. But seeing how it happened might shed some different light.

We’ve seen many situations in this apocalyptic world where the survivors have had to make decisions to allow people to perish because there’s nothing they can do to help them at that time–it’s just too late and they are not equipped to help.

Hold onto your hats, folks. According to executive producer Scott Gimple, the upcoming sixth season of The Walking Dead will feature numerous flashback scenes, with one entire episode slated to be told via the medium. The strategy, no doubt intended to shed some light on what’s been happening with recently-returned fan favorite Morgan since Season 3, has seldom been used to great effect on AMC’s wildly popular show, and fans are excited to learn more about the character’s off-screen experiences following the tragic death of his son, Duane, at his mother’s hands. Morgan’s return heralds a new era for the Alexandrians, but with speculation mounting over the fate of one of the show’s most popular characters, actor Norman Reedus’ (Daryl Dixon) latest practical joke is unlikely to put a smile on many faces.

Several members of the show’s cast recently sat down with MTV to discuss which deceased character from the series they’d like to bring back. Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha) cast her vote for Shane (party of one), while special effects mastermind Greg Nicotero posited that Rick’s mental state would be markedly different if wife Lori was still alive. Steven Yeun (Glenn) made a moving case for Dale/Hershel, but the reactions of the cast when Norman Reedus (Daryl) throws ‘Glenn’ into the mix make for some uncomfortable viewing. Nicotero is quick to clarify that Glenn isn’t dead, but is it just us, or does the word ‘yet’ seem to hang unspoken in the air? Executive producer Robert Kirkman has a definite story arc in mind for Season 6 (and 7, 8, 9, 10, 50…) but do you think producers will really go so far as to kill off Glenn? Goddamn it, Norman.
