Fighting is all these survivors can do now.
'The Walking Dead' has left us feeling a little silly with the mid-season 6 premiere 'No Way Out'. We were feeling pretty tense after the 4-minute clip released prior to the showing which saw Abraham, Sasha and Daryl confronted by some armed bandits, but we can finally breathe a sigh of relief having seen that moment's unlikely resolution.
Daryl saves the day in 'The Walking Dead' mid-season 6 premiere
If you didn't see the clip, here's a quick recap. Daryl (Norman Reedus), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) are on their way to Alexandria when a bunch of bikers known as The Saviors intercept them and demand they hand over their weapons - and, indeed, any other supplies they may have - claiming that everything now belongs to the mysterious Negan. They truly looked defeated but, as usual, Daryl had some tricks up his sleeve.
The season 6 mid-season premiere looks seriously tense.
Unsure of how to celebrate Valentine's Day this year? How about cuddling up on the sofa to the season 6 mid-season premiere of 'The Walking Dead'? Be warned though, it's pretty intense. And if you don't believe us, AMC have just launched a clip with the first four minutes of the opening scene for all you eager beavers.
Things go from bad to worse when Abraham steps in
The weekend literally can't come soon enough now we've seen this. Ahead of the upcoming season 6 episode, fans can get a generous glimpse of the events to come before Sunday (February 14th 2016). The clip features bits you've probably already seen from the 'hidden scene' of the mid-season finale.

The Walking Dead just took the gore level up to 11.
Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead featured one of the most gruesome scenes of the entire series so far. Twitter sparked into life after Gareth (Andrew J. West), leader of Terminus, forced Lawrence Gilliard Jr's Bob to watch as he took a bite out of his newly amputated, charred leg.
Remember The Walking Dead season 4? Well, things just got weirder
"We didn't want to hurt you before," Gareth tells Bob, who had woken up chained to a post. "We didn't want to pull you away from your group or scare you. These are not things that we wanted to do," he added.

The Walking Dead just got renewed for a sixth season, but plans for its spin-off are in full swing, too.
The upcoming spin-off for The Walking Dead keeps getting more alive by the day. After AMC announced a pilot order back in September, character descriptions for the cast have now surfaced. Are they as intriguing as the ones we know and love on The Walking Dead? Let’s take a look.
Prepare yourselves: a Walking Dead spin-off is happening
According to TVLine, the series will apparently follow two families and an additional survivor: Sean Cabrera and his son Cody, Nancy Tompkins and her two children Nick and Ashley, and a lone wolf by the name of Andrea (don't worry: it's a different Andrea). Sean is described as a Latino male in his 40’s “trying to do right by everyone in his life,” while his teenage son, Cody, is full of rebellion. The Tompkins, on the other hand, seem like they’ll add a bit of dysfunction. Nancy looks like “the girl next door” with an edge, and her children are opposites from each other in the sense that the son Nick doesn’t want to flee, but the daughter Ashley wants to “get out of dodge.” As far as Andrea goes, she has “retreated to the outskirts of the city to recover after a horrible marriage.”

Lincoln, Reedus and Cohen are all in agreement: season 5 is big. Also, some season 4 spoilers follow
After four seasons of some pretty intense zombie action, The Walking Dead enters its fifth this October. And according to some of the stars of the show, The Walking Dead Season 5 opens with some NSFTV stuff.
For those of you who don't remember what happened at the end of The Walking Dead season 4
"This episode is so disturbing," said actress Lauren Cohan whose character Maggie Greene spent the majority of season 4 fighting to find her husband, Glen. "Some of the the stuff they shot yesterday, I don't know if it'll make it to TV,” she added.
'The Walking Dead' producers say that the show could go on until season 12, but can its ratings keep improving like they have been?
There’s nothing better than your favorite show being in its fourth season and hearing from its creators that they already have plans for season number twelve. It’s exactly what fans of 'The Walking Dead' got when showrunner Scott Gimple and producer David Alpert revealed the info. Gimple started it all when he said the show could go on for ten seasons a few months back, but Alpert recently backed him up stating that, whether 'The Walking Dead' makes it to season 12 or not, they already know where they’re going to take the hit zombie series.
The Walking Dead could last till season 12?
"I happen to love working from source material, specifically because we have a pretty good idea of what season 10 is gonna be," Aplert said at an appearance at the Produced By conference this week. "We know where Season 11 and 12...we have benchmarks and milestones for those seasons if we're lucky enough to get there." The ones involved with the show aren’t the only ones who feel this way. Robert Kirkman, the creator of 'The Walking Dead' comic, has said that he knows where he’ll be taking the comic for issue number 200, and he even knows how it’s going to end. Started in October 2003, the book is currently at issue 128.

Take a look at Rick looking all angry below. And there are major spoilers for various Walking Dead properties all over the place.
The Walking Dead season 4 ended in high-octane fashion: Rick, Daryl, Michonne and Carl found Terminus but were soon wise to eerie feeling that surrounded it. A gun fight followed, and the subsequent dance that ensued saw the gang reunited, albeit locked up in a metal box.
In the photo, it looks as though Rick might be opening said metal box with a view to following through with his end-of-season words: “They’re screwing with the wrong people.” It was a solid end to a weird season, but one can’t help but thinking the whole ‘Rick’s back’ storyline has been done before, when he recovered from the loss of his wife.

There are spoilers ahead. If you haven't watched 'The Walking Dead' season 4, then what are you doing?
Walking Dead’s fourth season was a fractured affair, and one that got better with age. Once we’d recovered from Hershal’s death and the attack on the prison, our survivors were dispersed into groups as AMC’s zombie drama explored some of the darkest themes of its hugely popular run.
The season’s finale offered up a beautifully poised cliffhanger to lead us into season 5. Although cliffhanger might not be the right word, given we know the people of Terminus aren’t friendly, and we know Rick’s going to go all out to survive, especially considering what he’s done to get to this point.
As season 4 ends on a cliffhanger, season 5 promises more action
For those of you that watched the season 4 finale of The Walking Dead on Sunday night (Sunday, March 30) will know that Rick will do almost anything to survive, and that includes biting a man’s neck off. And survival is a motif continued by the first poster for season 5, which features Rick crouching solemnly, holding a gun; the word “survive” emblazoned above him. You can view it right here on AMC's Walking Dead Facebook page.
"Where did you get the watch!?" bellows Rick as he tries to get to the bottom of what's happening at Terminus
It brings us back full circle to the pilot episode and the first season in general, when ideas on the zombie apocalypse were first forming and the walkers seemed like a genuine threat, even attacking alone or in pairs. Nowadays, a single walker doesn’t represent much of a problem for our survivors, but Rick’s goals were simple: find his family, keep them alive. Survival was key.

Spoilers ahead. There's literally no point in playing Episode 1 after reading this.
It feels like an eternity since the season two of Telltale’s excellent Walking Dead game kicked off with its first episode. Now, finally, the trailer for episode two has been released, bringing with it an imminent release date and major hype for the next instalment in Clem’s story.
Clem has to fight for herself in Season 2 of The Walking Dead
In the trailer, we are confronted with a new character; a man hell bent on finding the group Clem came to loggerheads with in the first episode. It’s pretty obvious why he wants to find them: Rebecca and the baby. Clem seems stuck in the middle, talking to the enigmatic man while still travelling with her new group. With this new trailer for A House Divided, we edge closer to the actual release, which should have a date soon enough if Telltale’s previous patters are repeated.
Spoilers ahead. Anyone who reads this without watching S04E09: 'After', will have it ruined for them. That much should be obvious...
AMC’s ratings behemoth The Walking Dead returned to American TV screens on Sunday night (Feb 9th) and last night on FOX for British viewers. We re-join zombie dystopia after the devastating battle that left the prison decimated, our beloved survivors scattered, and a few key characters dead or missing.
Let's just kill Carl off and be done with it
The mid-season premiere focused on Rick Grimes and his son Carl as they scavenge for supplies in a dilapidated town, which, surprisingly – considering it’s walking distance from the prison - is full of nourishing goodies like a 112-ounce can of chocolate pudding. This is as good a time as any for me to list the reasons why The Walking Dead isn’t very good any more:

Ahead of tonight's return, the stars warn these 8 episodes aren't for the faint-hearted
For fans of The Walking Dead, season 4’s hiatus has felt like a lifetime. So tonight’s mid-season premiere will come as a welcome relief. There won’t be long to bathe in the sweet sunlight, though, as things are getting serious…
Danai Gurira is Michonne, and she walks about like this
“Keep the lights on and stay near a loved one,” says Danai Gurira, who plays grump samurai sword weilding Michonne on the AMC zombie drama.

Spoilers ahead for people who aren't up to date
With the midseason opener set to hit screens this Sunday (Feb 8), The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohen – who plays Maggie on the hit zombie drama – has spoken up about what we can expect: loneliness and gore. Lots and lots of gore.
Lauren Cohen's Maggie has survived the zombie apocalypse so far
The first eight episodes were weirdly paced, but gathered momentum in the last two as The Governor executed his plan to revert back to his killing ways.
How would you have reacted?
The Walking Dead is back this Sunday, so we’ll be able to see Rick Grimes stab zombies in the head with a shiv once more while his son walks about, looking moody, constantly trying to prove himself.
Chandler Riggs' Carl is not really fussed by zombies any more - not even looking
To celebrate this (market this), AMC have put some zombies under a subway grate to scare the bejeezus out of unsuspecting New Yorkers. Manhattan's Union Square was infested with zombie extras, reaching out to grab the ankles of commuters, tourists, homeless people and joggers.
AMC will keep making The Walking Dead as long as you keep watching it.
AMC don’t want to let The Walking Dead go, and why would they? The zombie thriller gets bums on sofas, while the critics continue to buy into the lavish scenario of an un-dead apocalypse.
Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) go hunting for zombies
We’re three episodes into season four, but a 5th season is on the way as AMC confirm Robert Kirkman’s franchise will continue to thrive on the small screen.
The zombie thriller carries on its record breaking viewership
The Walking Dead has always been a ratings winner for AMC. Seasons 1-3 have been a great success for the network, which has boasted Breaking Bad and Mad Men over the past fix years, but season 4’s premiere has topped it all with 16.1 million fans tuning in to see how Rick Grimes can protect his even larger group.
Rick Grimes had plenty to think about in the opening episode of season 4
If Nielsen are to be believed – and they are – The Walking Dead received the highest rating across all U.S programing on Sunday night. This includes NBC's NFL "Sunday Night Football" game, which usually draws the largest viewership in the 18-49 demographic.
The Walking Dead season 4 episode 1 began with calm, though quickly moved into chaos.
All was calm in the prison community during The Walking Dead season 4, episode 1, which aired on AMC on Sunday night (October 14, 2013) to fill the Breaking Bad sized hole in the networks' schedule.
Rick Grimes Takes Time Out From His Gardening To Chat With The Walkers
The long struggle between the suvivor's of the Governor's Woodbury and Rick's hastily put together prison community is now over and the survivors are trying to create structure. There's a nice little garden, a decision making council, some farm animals and communal meals.

Andrew Lincoln was a surprise casting as Rick Grimes, though he's more than proved his worth.
The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln was living a pretty stress free life in Britain. After graduating from the super-competitive Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, he landed a part in the BBC series This is Life before going on to split his time between television, theater and movies.
Andrew Lincoln Beat 100 Rivals To 'The Walking Dead' Lead
After the success of Channel 4's Teachers, Lincoln had a solid reputation - in British acting circles at least - and a handful of movies followed, including the smash hit romantic comedy Love Actually. Though the 40-year-old was in work, he'd hardly set the screen alight.
Rick has new people to worry about as a new threat looms
Having kicked off as an all-out zombie drama, where survival was key at all costs and the most enjoyable scenes featured at least a mauling or two, if not the death of a main character, The Walking Dead has evolved into a fully fledged character drama over three seasons.
What should I do to them? Grimes thinks, and probably should say
And ahead of season four, which premieres this Sunday (Oct13) on AMC, the character responsible for the biggest arc – a certain Rick Grimes – is set to herd his sheep through a maze of greedy, barbaric humans and non-sentient zombies looking for their next meal of human flesh.
All you'll need before season four's debut - there are spoilers
The Walking Dead finally returns this week (Oct13) to AMC. With the network’s keynote show, Breaking Bad, having culminated in its fantastic finale not so long ago, TV lovers will welcome the return of Robert Kirkman’s high-octane zombie drama to fill their winter Sunday nights.
Of course, binging on seasons one, two and three to catch up on all the action is one option. But that would mean some serious time off between now and Sunday night. No, to get up to speed on the action gone by, and hints of action to come, this comprehensive preview should satisfy all your needs.

Spoilers ahead, you have been warned.
Fear not, grieving Breaking Bad fan, because there’s nothing like saying goodbye to your favorite TV show then welcoming the new one you really quite like. Flesh-guzzling zombies, The Governor and the must-talked-about ‘new threat' loom in season four of The Walking Dead: take a look at this sneak peak now.
The guys are back to thrill and shock us - not Andrea or Lori or T, though: they're all dead.

Minor spoilers ahead, so, you've been warned.
In a world in which HBO are the darlings of the boxset generation, AMC represent the plucky underdog. They’ve got Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead up their sleeve, and they’re not afraid to milk them. First came Better Call Saul, now we’ll have a whole new wave of Zombie survivors as a Walking Dead spin off series has been confirmed.
Andrew Lincoln is back as Rick Grimes
With season four ready to return in October, we’ll finally get to see how the new prison inhabitants settle in, and just what The Governor has planned now that he’s gone ‘full on crazy’ and ‘mental’. So far, Robert Kirkman’s creation has included many of the characters brought to life by his comic book series, although it’s unclear if any of those characters – or indeed the ones we know and love – are set to feature in the spin off.
Enroll in 'The Walking Dead' course now, and make it one day longer in hell.
How many days could you survive a zombie apocalypse? Seven? ‘Forty three’? No – you’re wrong. You all think you could survive for ages, but that’s because never been attacked by something intent on ripping your brain out and throating it whole – no sautéing or anything.
Yeah, books sold at a ridiculous a markup on some geek site might claim to have all the tools you need for survival - cut your hair so it can’t get grabbed (thanks Lee), for example – but what you really need is an official course.

There are SPOILERS AHEAD you have been warned.
We all thought The Governor would die at the end of season three of The Walking Dead – we just did. Then he went berserk and killed a load of people – people, not zombies – and disappeared in a big scary truck. He’s not dead, and now we can’t wait for his return in season 4.
The excellent Morrissey is turning into AMC's main man
But there’s a caveat to all this; you see, when we find out about actors getting work in real life, we, as humans, do sums in our little heads – the cogs start turning and then someone goes, ‘hang on?’ David Morrissey is leading a new pilot for AMC’s Line of Sight, so, doesn’t that mean the Governor is going to be killed off early doors?
Walking Dead spoilers ahead, beware.
There’s a lot of brilliant TV hitting our screens very soon; we’re a lucky bunch. With Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire and The Walking Dead all returning in August, September and October, it promises to be a monumental Fall for TV dramas.
The latter – the zombie thriller spearheaded by Andrew Lincoln – provides something a little different. As well as the high drama, sometimes expertly written in to the show, the pure visceral thrill of the apocalypse has given a real edge to ACM’s programming, not to mention ‘Sundays’.
Fan's wait patiently for the new season, and this 4.5 min trailer should keep them happy.
In the extended Walking Dead Season 4 trailer, let loose at Comic-Con 2013, we see a more hardened version of the survivors we’ve come to know and love. And as David Morrissey explained to io9, there’s a whole new threat to be wary of. From the trailer, we can deduce that the group (or probably Rick) decided that staying at the prison was best; they’ve built a farm and even have little piglets.
The opening scene sees Daryl using all his experience. “Just give it another second,” he says knowingly, presumably drawing walkers to him so they can loot wherever they’re residing. But how long can this last? Eventually, and we can only assume this is The Governor’s work, the group’s safety is compromised by someone feeding walkers near the gates, and attacking cell blocks.

The hit AMC zombie series was one of the stand-out panels at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con International
The Walking Dead will return to AMC on Sunday 13 October at 9 p.m. - the shows crew and cast revealed to a packed out Hall H at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con International. The show's panel was one of the most popular throughout the whole weekend and with a host of treats lined up for fans, including the official release date of the much-anticipated four season, it also proved to be one of the most enjoyable panels of the weekend too.
The stars revealed more in San Diego than they did at the New York Comic Con
New showrunner Scott M. Gimple made his debut appearance with the rest of the Walking Dead crew on the panel, which included the comic book series creator Robert Kirkman, executive producers Gale Anne Hurd and Sarah Wayne Callies as well as stars Andrew Lincoln, Lennie James, David Morrissey, Norman Reedus and more. Whilst there, the panel discussed the divisive season three, the complexities of their characters and where the next season might be heading, but made sure not to give away too much information about the zombie drama's next steps.
We take a look back at season three, and look towards season four
For many, season three of The Walking Dead ended disappointingly. Early threats of ‘war is coming’ died down and with a damp squib, the run petered out with many of the conflicts and plot lines intact. Perfect for those who enjoy the moody exchanges between Rick and The Governor, but the season’s denouement did little for the show’s progression.
It wouldn’t be fair to judge season three entirely on its own merits, though – season four is looking like it’ll have a profound effect on peoples’ opinions on the last.
The Walking Dead fans get into the swing of things
A harrowing zombie alert was issued by hackers managed who found their way into the emergency alert system of Great Falls affiliate KRTV and its CW station. The message was quickly removed and KRTV broadcasted an apology.
The EAS warning interrupted a broadcast of "The Steve Wilkos Show" devoted to "teen cheaters" and contained some pretty serious stuff, if you've been watching The Walking Dead, that is. "Civil authorities in your area have reported that the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and attacking the living," went the broadcast. "Follow the messages onscreen that will be updated as information become available. Do not attempt to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are considered extremely dangerous." Even though broadcasting fake messages of distress is against the law, and cannot be condoned, we would have quite liked the short-lived feeling of dread followed by the secret relief. At least four people experienced just that, as the station received separate calls enquiring into the validity of the zombie news. Local police also had to confim that there was no emergency. "We can report in the city, there have been no sightings of dead bodies rising from the ground," Lt. Shane Sorensen of the Great Falls Police Department told the Great Falls Tribune.
On its website, KRTV posted a notice saying: "Someone apparently hacked into the Emergency Alert System and announced on KRTV and the CW that there was an emergency in several Montana counties. This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency."

‘Walking Dead’ Record set by post-hiatus episode. The return of The Walking Dead on Sunday had been eagerly awaited and resulted in record breaking ratings for the zombie outbreak TV show. The third series of the show had been on hiatus but according to CBS News, came back with a bang, beating even its series debut ratings back in October.
The Nielsen Co., who monitor TV viewer numbers in the US revealed that Sunday’s show attracted a fantastic total of 12.3 million viewers. the best part of the news for AMC, who air the series, is that 7.7 million were part of that lucrative 18 – 49 demographic. According to Nielsen, a cable series has never drawn such a huge audience in that age group. When the series opened in October, it attracted a record 10.9 million viewers but it appears that absence really does make the heart grow fonder, when it comes to hip young zombie fans, who tuned in in their droves to find out what happened next.
The previous week, NCIS had been the most popular drama on air, with an impressive 22 million viewers, though fewer than 5 million wee in that all-important under-50 age group. The Walking Dead airs again on Sunday at 9pm, ET on AMC. The series has already won two Emmy Awards, as well as a Golden Globe nomination for best television series.
The third season of The Walking Dead rumbles on, with Collider pointing out that some 11 zombie kills were made during the course of the latest episode, with about 15 casualties on the side of the live ‘uns. It was nothing outstanding in terms of the body count compared to some episodes of the show, and allowed the plot to focus heavily on Andrea and Michonne (played by Laurie Holden and Danai Gurira).
The first surprise of the episode – titled Walk With Me – came when our old friend Merle’s voice was heard off-screen, before it became apparent that he’d aligned himself with that dastardly Governor! Gosh. Andrea and Michonne discover this after seeing a helicopter crash into some trees and heading to check out what’s gone on. It’s there they meet the Governor who takes them to a settlement that looks almost too good to be true – Woodbury. In typical fashion, Andrea seems swept up in this relative utopia among the decay of the wider world, though Michonne is more suspicious, and we’re pretty sure she has good reason to be.
What was interesting about this episode was that the entire hour unfolded in Woodbury; you might remember that the season kicked off back at the prison the previous week, but those characters have been left out this time round, which means only one thing – we now get to wait until the two camps become aware of each other. Then things are going to get really interesting.
There was much anticipation ahead of the third season premiere of 'The Walking Dead'. The sci-fi zombie thriller series managed to break demographic records in the US for the 18-49 age group with its season two premiere, causing its network AMC to renew it for a new season.

The Walking Dead is readying itself for series 3, which will hit screens later this month, and one thing is for sure is that there wont be any shortage of gore, guts and glory. So, for those who still can't wait any longer even though the airing date is looming ever closer, here's a few mini-spoilers of what can be expected for season 3.
First off the bat, will be the introduction of Michonne, who was first brought in to the show during the shocking finale of series 2. Michonne, played by Danai Gurira, will have her character dissected and background laid out for all to see, and whether she will prove to be an ally to Jack and the rest of the survivors from series 1 will have to be seen.

Despite noticeable similarities between 'The Walking Dead' and '28 Days Later', series creator, Robert Kirkman, has gone about setting the record straight - neither are based on one-another.
AMC's post-apocalyptic zombie drama, 'The Walking Dead', made its television debut on 31st October, 2010, to tremendous praise. The series, staring Andrew Lincoln, is based on the graphic novel series of the same name by writer Robert Kirkman, who has been disputing claims that he based a lot of his series on the movie '28 Days Later' - yet he puts those rumours to bed, by explaining how 'The Walking Dead' came first.
'The Walking Dead''s 90-minute pilot episode features an incredibly similar opening to '28 Days Later', with both featuring the main character entering into a coma before the start of a zombie apocalypse, and waking after the world has all but ended. Kirkman, however, insists on playing-down the similarities, saying: "Yeah. It was a little annoying. But great minds think alike, right".
