Frank Darabont’s new show Mob City is set to debut at the beginning of December, just in time for families celebrating the holidays to get a taste of the neo-noir series. Though Darabont is excited for Mob City, he still has much to say about his departure from AMC’s The Walking Dead.
With Breaking Bad gone and Mad Men leaving soon, AMC is in trouble. It’s last (and biggest) hit, The Walking Dead, is fairly critically reviled (or, these days, ignored), and many of its other high-profile attempts to launch dramas that capitalize off of any of the channel’s big successes have largely flopped. From the early, ambitious failure of twisty conspiracy thriller Rubicon to the most-hated show of 2011, The Killing, AMC just has not managed to really follow-up any of its hit dramas in a meaningful way. Rather than continue to double-down on ‘prestige dramas’, they have apparently decided to take a swing at adapting another long-running, darkly violent comic book series. Are you ready to see Preacher on AMC?
At Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta this past weekend, Comicbook.com asked Andrew Lincoln if there were perhaps any big events or moments coming up in Season 4 that would match up to his performance he gave after Lori passed in Season 3. Losing a spouse is indeed one of the hardest things one can experience, could there really be something bigger in store for the Sheriff?
Though The Walking Dead isn’t set to release until October 13th, all of those in the fandom with walker withdrawals will be able to get their fix today with The Oath, a webseries set in the world.
If you’re AMC right now and seeing the going trends of how well The Walking Dead does from season to season, you’d have to wonder how to capitalize on this further if you’re them. You could make more zombie shows, you could start figuring out more series to pair up with the show, or hey here’s a cool idea, spinoff The Walking Dead! That’s right, in 2015 you have a Walking Dead spinoff series on the way executive produced by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, along with two other executive producers Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert.
We’ve all been wondering if Daryl and Carol will ride off with one another slaying zombies into the sunset for a while now. The nature of their relationship has really been put in question, especially last season. Which keeps fans asking, “Will Daryl and Carol ever be together?” Robert Kirkman, writer of The Walking Dead, said that they may in fact never be together.
AMC’s runaway hit Comic Book Men looking to cast more folks for the upcoming third season of the show. Produced by Kevin Smith, the show is casting for a few more weeks and is looking for people who are looking for some TV experience and who would like to buy or sell any of their fun, valuable or unique items from comic books or pop culture at Smith’s Comic Book Shop in Red Bank, New Jersey.
Last season of The Walking Dead left many fans of the comic books disappointed, as they felt that the show began to stray away from the original vision. The weekly talk at the water cooler suddenly started to become sour and arguments ensued between those who read the comic and those who had only had seen the show. But this season should please everyone, as it should include a little more from the comics.
Now that season three of The Walking Dead has ended, what does creator/executive producer Robert Kirkman have in store for the next season? According to Kirkman, a lot of elements will carry over from season three to season four, but he “can’t stress how different things are going to be.”
If you haven’t seen the season three finale of The Walking Dead, you’ve been warned: SPOILERS AHEAD!
At New York’s Toy Fair last weekend, Cryptozoic Entertainment revealed a new board game based on the hit series from AMC, The Walking Dead. The Walking Dead: Road to the Prison will feature cooperative gameplay surrounding the events from the second and third season of the popular show. Cryptozoic already has one Walking Dead board game on the shelves, but Scott Gaeta, COO at Cryptozoic assures fans that this new installment is “…not an expansion…It’s a totally separate game with all new game play.”
The Walking Dead has been generating lots of buzz lately, with the news that Scott Gimple will replace Glen Mazzara as showrunner and this trailer for the return of season three. But the show is taking it back to the streets this year with the Zombie Walk at San Diego Comic-Con. Apparently it will be even bigger and deadlier than last year.
AMC’s The Walking Dead made headlines when writer and showrunner Glen Mazzara announced his departure last December. Rumors flew that Mazzara was leaving due to issues with creator Robert Kirkman and AMC, but Kirkman wants it known that there are no hard feelings, and that the parting was amicable.
“What’s black and white and dead all over?” AMC’s The Walking Dead, of course. Or it will be starting in February, when AMC plans to air all of season one and two in black and white.
The TV Series Is Better
It’s inevitable that when a comic book gets made into a movie or a television series, comparisons are made. The adaptation gets scrutinized for how “faithful” it is to the source material. The adaptation is judged for how well the story and characters are brought to life. There are some fans that may love an adaptation only if it’s supremely faithful to the original comic book, and there are some fans that prefer to judge an adaptation based on its own merits. I’m definitely one of those fans in the latter group. And I stand with Robert Kirkman’s handling of The Walking Dead graphic novel series and The Walking Dead hit television show.
Less than one month to go until The Walking Dead returns to AMC! As if that wasn’t exciting enough news for zombie fans, AMC has confirmed that they’ll be releasing webisodes a few weeks prior to the third season premiere on October 14th.
