It's Back! The second half of season 8 of The Walking Dead on AMC just got underway last Sunday night. If you were tuned in and I'm sure you were, it was a tragic and tearful episode. Aren't they all? I won't spoil it for you so remain calm, there's no need to panic. But believe me you'll want to get caught up soon before someone does spoil it for you.
Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has booked plenty of gigs outside of AMC, but his newest move is bound to ruffle some feathers. Amazon has signed Kirkman to an exclusive overall deal for the next few years, along with Dead company Skybound Entertainment.
Four episodes into The Walking Dead Season 7, and little has happened beyond Negan inflicting the worst of horrors on even those who survived the deadly premiere. Things may get worse before they get better, as the full set of titles and synopses through midseason tease that Negan won’t stay away from Alexandria for long.
‘The Walking Dead’ makes Season 7 too real performing “Service” to Negan’s victory, but does the first trip to Alexandria spark a sense of rebellion, or languish in grief? And will anyone tell poor Tara about Denise? Find out in our full review!
AMC isn’t one to look a rotting gift horse like The Walking Dead in the mouth, extending its highest-rated series so long as creator Robert Kirkman provides comic source material. That relationship doesn’t necessarily extend both ways, however, as Kirkman acknowledges AMC has zero input or foreknowledge of any potential story shakeups.
The Walking Dead has spent the majority of Season 7 in the aftermath of Negan’s vicitms, but will finally return to Rick and co. in next Sunday’s “Service.” our first post-“The Cell” clip has arrived, as Alexandria prepares for the Saviors, and someone wants inside the gate.
The Walking Dead broke with its usual habit of super-sized premieres, going only six or so minutes past the hour for Season 7 return “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be.” We may yet get our 90-minute episode after all, however, as an upcoming hour featuring one of Negan’s biggest moments has been extended to 85 minutes.
The second outing of The Walking Dead Season 7 took us away from the gloom and doom of its heady premiere with a trip to The Kingdom, and it’s only fitting that next week’s third hour reveal yet another location. See where The Saviors call home, as a first clip from next week’s “The Cell” reveals Dwight and Negan’s captives in their native habitat.
The Walking Dead tried to have its cake and eat it by Sunday’s Season 7 premiere cashing out not one, but two series regulars; one in line with the comic, one intended to throw us off. Now, creator Robert Kirkman explains why AMC’s Walking Dead opted to follow the comic so closely, noting that too much story was lost otherwise.
Whether or not The Walking Dead justified its Season 7 guessing game by the reveal of Negan’s victim(s!) this past Sunday, few would argue the sequence itself reached a disgusting new height of gore effects, practical and otherwise. See for yourself, as new behind-the-scenes shots reveal some eye-popping makeup you’ll want to see before lunch.
