AMC’s The Walking Dead as you know it may be in trouble.
The Walking Dead has been a big money-making success at AMC, pulling in an impressive amount of viewers for the network. But Skybound—the entertainment company founded by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman—just announced that Amazon will be the home of all their new TV content moving forward.
Zombie stories almost always have the same end game: Either humanity finds a cure, or everyone dies. In Friday’s Walking Dead panel at San Diego Comic-Con, franchise creator Robert Kirkman said definitely his show will never, ever, look for a solution to the undead apocalypse. (Looks like everyone dying is still on…
In Robert Kirkman’s Thief of Thieves, world-renowned thief and conman Conrad Paulson gives up his life of stealing in favor of a new life of stealing... from other criminals. Naturally, Paulson’s former colleagues don’t take kindly to his new lifestyle and he’s forced to go on the run.
Robert Kirkman created The Walking Dead. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg finally got a Preacher adaptation made. Now, Rogen and Goldberg will be turning Kirkman’s long-running superhero series into a major motion picture for Universal.
Robert Kirkman is apparently discounting the possibility that ratings fall and AMC cancels The Walking Dead. Or, the expense eventually makes the show not worth it, and AMC cancels it. Or, and I think we all agree this is the most likely option, the world ends in an apocalypse that makes The Walking Dead both…
In fact, not only won’t Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman tell the network that runs the hit show based on his comic, he won’t tell showrunner Scott Gimple what’s going happen in the comics, either. The crazy thing is that Gimple is such a TWD fan, he doesn’t want to know.
After “categorically denying” that he was working on a remake of An American Werewolf in London back in August, it looks like Max Landis (son of the original film’s writer-director, John Landis) has revised his position. Deadline just reported that the film is officially a go, and the younger Landis will write it.
You know how world leaders have body doubles to give assassins a hard time? Well, The Walking Dead has employed a similar technique to avoid any plot details from leaking. This is a normal and proportional response to the problem of spoilers.
For more than 10 years, Invincible has been a love letter to the superhero genre, paying homage and remixing plot beats and character archetypes into a series that’s become a hit unto its own. That run will be ending next year.
Good news for fans of The Walking Dead and clean places to sleep. TWD creator Robert Kirkman has announced the seventh season of the series will not end with a cliffhanger that infuriates virtually of its viewers. Probably a good decision, guys!
The Walking Dead comic has been around for over a decade now. The behemoth series has yielded over a whopping 156 issues so far, and of course, shambled into alternate mediums with seven seasons of the Walking Dead show. But according to Kirkman, at one point the comic was going to be a lot shorter than it currently…
Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) will bring Roger Zelazny’s 10-part Chronicles of Amber book series to television, with co-producer David Alpert of Skybound Entertainment calling it “one of my favorite book series of all time” and “a lifelong dream” of a project. Sounds like it’s in good hands.
Comic books have been good to AMC. They’ve been the basis of its biggest series ever in The Walking Dead, a new series in Preacher and even a reality series by Kevin Smith. Next, the network will give back by producing a miniseries exploring the origins of the art form.
Movies about demons, possessions, and exorcisms have always been very common. That’s because they’re such terrifying, malleable ideas with huge implications. A new show with those themes, Outcast, is coming in June—and the latest trailer will freak you out.
The Walking Dead’s season six finale aired a full month ago, but its cliffhanger ending—who did Negan pick as his victim?—proved so controversial that fans are still fuming about it. Now, TWD comic writer and creator Robert Kirkman has addressed the issue, although it still might not assuage those fans who felt…
The Walking Dead has never been accused of being a happy show, but it’s one of the few series to be called “misery porn”—an exercise in watching characters face tragedy after tragedy until their eventual horrible deaths. I’ve never thought this was true... but having seen this Sunday’s mid-season premiere, I wonder if…
We’ve got two TV shows based on Robert Kirkman’s zombie comic The Walking Dead, and now Kirkman’s exorcism comic Outcast is getting the small screen treatment as well. And if the latest trailer is any indication, it’s going to be a moody ride, punctuated by terrible violence.
Darryl Dixon isn’t even in the Walking Dead comics—but he’s become such a beloved character on the TV show that tons of people wear T-shirts threatening to riot if he’s killed. We asked actor Norman Reedus what it is about Darryl that makes him so beloved.
