Walking Dead Key Art: Why Is Rick All Alone?

The Walking Dead fans can gorge on the AMC zombie drama's Season 2 premiere on Oct. 16. Until then, we offer an exclusive first look at the new season's (clue-filled) poster as a tasty appetizer. The first question that comes to mind: Why is Rick ( Andrew Lincoln ) all alone? The poster certainly continues the theme established by the striking Season 1 image of Rick riding into an abandoned Atlanta on horseback. But now that Rick's been reunited with his family and the other survivors, why is he still seen flying solo? Our educated guess after screening the 90-minute season opener : This season will test Rick as a leader, and his decisions may end up isolating him from the other survivors. That's a concept Lincoln saw developing at the end of Season 1 when Rick led the group to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention only to learn it was far from a safe haven. The Walking Dead creator weighs in on Season 1's biggest mystery http://www.tvguide.com/News/Walking-Dead-Season2-Poster-1037260.aspx?rss=breakingnews

'The Walking Dead': Glenn Mazzara on his new role, Frank Darabont's exit and season 2

"I think that there's been all this concern that I'm going to f--- up the show and really we're just trying to get it done." -- Glen MazzaraIn a small screening room in Beverly Hills on a sweltering late summer afternoon, newly-minted "Walking Dead" showrunner Glen Mazzara -- along with co-executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert -- was on deck to reassure a handful of TV reporters and bloggers (and, by extension, their fans) that AMC's zombie hit is very much on track, in form and moving ahead at full steam.In late July, show creator Frank Darabont abruptly left the production -- just days after enthusiastically promoting the show's second season at Comic-Con. Since Darabont's exit, the rumor mill has been churning with theories about his exit -- everything from Darabont's personality to clashes with AMC execs over budget cuts have been blamed for the shake-up.Darabont, it should be noted, will... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/09/the-walking-dead-glenn-mazzara-on-his-new-role-frank-darabonts-exit-and-season-2.html

'The Walking Dead' Season 2 Preview: More Action, More Emotion & More Zombies!

I was lucky enough to screen the premiere episode of 'The Walking Dead' Season 2 today, and the first words out of my mouth when it ended pretty much say it all: holy sh*t. Now I was one of the ones on the fence about this show after its way too short first season, and I know a lot of fans are worried about the series being in new hands since Frank Darabont passed the showrunning torch off to Glen Mazzara. But after seeing the 90-minute premiere, I can safely say that we can all stop worrying. This is non-stop, edge-of-your-seat, pulse-pounding zombie action and suspense at its best. Now they just have to keep that up for the second season's full 13-episode order ... no biggie. I caught up with Mazzara and fellow executive producers Gayle Anne Hurd, Robert Kirkman and Dave Alpert to find out more about Season 2's drama, the introduction of new characters Herschel and Maggie, Andrea's eventual evolution and giving back to the fans.

Awesome Lengthy Trailer for THE WALKING DEAD Season Two

We don’t ordinarily see trailers of this length for TV shows unless it’s around the time of upfronts presentation of new series. However, it looks like this fantastic new trailer for the second season of AMC’s zombie drama  The Walking Dead  comes from overseas since our broadcast of the show in the US doesn’t happen on FX. Wherever it comes from, there’s plenty of new footage from the second season and a great set-up for the action and suspense coming again this October. My favorite quick shot is that of some of the walking dead taking a rest in a church. But that’s just one great moment among many in this extended trailer for what promises to be another great season of  The Walking Dead . Check out the trailer after the jump and get excited for the premiere on October 16th. Read More... http://collider.com/walking-dead-extended-season-2-trailer/109083/

Why Frank Darabont left 'The Walking Dead': New details

>> Below: Video of Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies and Andrew Lincoln talking about Darabont at Comic-Con.The reasons behind showrunner Frank Darabont's exit from "The Walking Dead" are still largely shrouded in mystery, but a new article in The Hollywood Reporter fills in some of the details surrounding his departure.According to anonymous sources cited in the article, Darabont was fired by AMC execs in late July and the move came as a surprise to cast, crew and Darabont himself. The show's principal actors and crew were informed in separate meetings about Darabont's departure and replacement by lead writer Glen Mazzara.According to those anonymous sources, AMC is working overtime to discourage anyone attached to the show from talking about Darabont's exit. At Comic-Con, actors including Sarah Wayne Callies, Jon Bernthal and Andrew Lincoln talked about Darabont in almost reverent terms -- about the environment he'd created and the attention to detail going in to each episode.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/08/why-frank-darabont-left-the-walking-dead-new-details.html

AMC President Charlie Collier Addresses the 'Breaking Bad' & 'Walking Dead' Controversies

The AMC network has followed a trajectory not unlike that of Don Draper, the ad man at the center of 'Mad Men.' AMC's first two dramas, 'Mad Men' and 'Breaking Bad,' have been showered with acclaim, and the network had a huge hit last fall with the zombie chronicle 'The Walking Dead.' But just as Don Draper's image took a hit in the fourth season of 'Mad Men,' AMC has been enduring its own share of troubles during the past year. A timeline of AMC's ups and downs is here , but suffice to say, controversies over of 'Breaking Bad,' 'Mad Men,' 'The Walking Dead' and 'The Killing' make for a change from a few years of glowing coverage of the network's rapid ascent.
