x Though death has come knocking for young Carl Grimes (see AMC’s heartfelt tribute to Rick’s closest ally here), Norman Reedus believes The Walking Dead season 8B will still bring closure and “resolution” when it airs this Sunday. Set to kick things off with the super-sized “Honor” on February 25th, the back-end of The Walking Dead is all about tying up loose ends, according to Norman Reedus, who spoke candidly to Entertainment Weekly ahead of the show’s return this coming weekend. And don’t worry, it’s totally free of spoilers, as Reedus paints in broad strokes when discussing season 8’s long-anticipated climax: It’s all resolution. It’s all the tying up of these ends of what’s laid out in front of us in all these different directions. There’s a lot of closure coming in the back eight, which is great. There’s been all this action and all the fighting and all these different factions that … [Read more...] about Norman Reedus Talks Resolution Ahead Of The Walking Dead Season 8B

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Sunday's "Judge, Jury, Executioner"episode.] After Rick and Shane finally agree on something -- prisoner Randall poses a threat and should be whacked -- Dale steps in as a voice of reason to fight for the group's humanity on Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead. After surveying the group and coming up short, despite wooing Andrea at the last minute, Dale learns that his efforts failed to make a difference in sparing Randall's life. Meanwhile, Carl continues to further explore a dark path, baiting a zombie out of ankle-deep mud. The two stories converge when, at the end of episode, the same walker attacks Dale, forcing Daryl to step up and mercifully end the life of the group's moral compass. The Hollywood Reporter caught up with executive producer Robert Kirkman, who created the comic book series on which the AMC drama is based, to discuss Sunday's "Judge, Jury, Executioner" episode, what Dale's death means for the group and how Carl … [Read more...] about ‘The Walking Dead’ Dissection: Robert Kirkman Spills on [Spoiler’s] Death
Life is never easy for Rick in Image/Skybound Comics'The Walking Dead. Just as Rick has seen a glimpse of the future in the Hilltop community, the group of survivors appears to have something more pressing on their plate before they can prepare to go to bat for their new friends. In Issue No. 97 of the comic series created by Robert Kirkman, Rick's son, Carl, has seemingly wandered off in the time it took for Rick to explain why he's willing to risk the lives of Michonne, Glenn and Andrea, among others, to go to bat for Gregory and the Hilltop community. While Andrea and Michonne think it's a mistake to fight for a group whom they see as a cult, Rick and Glenn see it as the start of something new, where they can begin to rebuild civilization -- and something worth fighting Negan and the violent leader of the Saviors. In the first five pages of Part 1 of Something to Fear, exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter, Carl is missing, while the fierce Maggie is surprisingly ill and Abraham and … [Read more...] about Image/Skybound Comics’ ‘The Walking Dead’ No. 97 Preview (Exclusive)
[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the Walking Dead comic books on which the AMC series is based.] When it comes to The Walking Dead, the shark isn't the only thing that gets jumped. In the original comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Charlie Adlard, the story of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his companions is mostly told in real time, from the Atlanta days to the Alexandria days, and even through the war against Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors. Then, something jarring happens: in the 127th issue of the series, the story suddenly leaps forward several years, revealing an Alexandria Safe Zone that truly lives up to its name. Between the Hilltop, the Kingdom and other sanctuaries (including the literal Sanctuary), Rick has managed to actualize his vision for a safer future. He's successfully organized a network of communities working together in harmony, clearing out walkers and creating safe roads between the various … [Read more...] about Will ‘The Walking Dead’ Feature the Big Time Jump From the Comics?
x The Walking Dead‘s midseason premiere is now so close we can almost smell the rotten flesh wafting up from AMC’s horde of flesh-munching walkers. Titled “Honor,” we know it’ll signal the untimely death of young Carl Grimes, who, much to the horror of his father Rick, suffered a fatal walker bite just prior to the show’s winter hiatus. Such a tragic twist of fate has laid the foundations for a truly gut-wrenching premiere, as viewers prepare to bid farewell to a character who has been a cornerstone of The Walking Dead ever since AMC’s adaptation made its humble debut back in 2010. But what about those other characters who have fallen along the way? Indeed, if series creator Robert Kirkman was able to resurrect a fallen ally (or villain!), who would he choose? That question was posed to The Walking Dead‘s founding father this past weekend, where he pointed to the fan-favorite Tyreese (Chad Coleman), while also giving an honorable … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Creator Reveals Who He’d Like To Bring Back
