‘The Walking Dead’ Season 8 trailer is all action and a whole lot of of hope

TwitterFacebook

After weathering criticism that Season 7 of The Walking Dead was unrelentingly bleak, Season 8 of AMC’s zombie hit looks like a very different animal, at least judging from the first trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday afternoon. 

While Negan is still sauntering around swinging his bat and warning people that they’re about to «shit their pants,» the tone of the trailer is one of defiance, as Rick Grimes and his allies take the fight to the Saviors, with the Alexandrians joining forces with the residents of Hilltop and the Kingdom to defeat the big bad.

There are some moments in the trailer that hint at a little more levity than previous seasons — including a somewhat innocent moment of a walker trying to catch a plastic bag caught on a tree — but much of the footage focuses on Rick and Maggie rallying their troops with motivational speeches… and Daryl blowing shit up.  Read more…

Fear the Walking Dead Season 4 given the green light

AMC announced today that it has renewed Fear the Walking Dead for a fourth season, ahead of its upcoming season three premiere on June 4. In addition, Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time) are boarding as co-showrunners, starting with Fear the Walking Dead Season 4. Additionally, Scott M. Gimple, executive producer and showrunner of The Walking Dead, will become an executive producer of Fear the Walking Dead.

“We’re very excited to continue the journey of ‘Fear The Walking Dead,’ and truly look forward to working with the talented team of Andrew Chambliss, Ian Goldberg, and Scott Gimple,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV.

“We are thrilled to be joining ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ and couldn’t be more excited to work alongside the wonderful team at AMC on this show,” said Chambliss and Goldberg.  “We love this universe and are truly honored to have the chance to contribute to it.”

In the second half of its second season, Fear the Walking Dead averaged 5.3 million viewers per episode, including 3.4 million adults 25-54 and 3 million adults 18-49 in Nielsen live+3 ratings, firmly establishing “Fear” as one of the top shows on cable.

AMC previously announced that Fear the Walking Dead showrunner Dave Erickson would be transitioning off of the show upon completion of production of season 3 to develop new products for AMC Studios.

A wholly original companion series to The Walking Dead, the #1 show on television among adults 18-49 for the last five years, Fear the Walking Dead is executive produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert, David Erickson and Scott M. Gimple and produced by AMC Studios.

Fear the Walking Dead Season 3 Premiere Date Revealed

Fear the Walking Dead Season 3 Premiere Date Revealed

Fear the Walking Dead season 3 premiere date revealed

Following the season finale of The Walking Dead (our recap of which you can read by clicking here), AMC has announced the Fear the Walking Dead season 3 premiere date, revealing the companion series will return on Sunday, June 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The first half of the season will consist of eight episodes airing over six weeks, with two back-to- back episodes on Sunday, June 4 and a mid-season finale of two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, July 9. You can check out some new photos from the upcoming season in the gallery below!

As Fear the Walking Dead returns for season three, our families will be brought together in the vibrant and violent region formerly known as the U.S.-Mexico border. International lines done away with following the world’s end, our characters must attempt to rebuild not only society, but family as well. Madison has reconnected with Travis, her apocalyptic partner, but Alicia has been fractured by her murder of Andres. Madison’s son is only a few miles from his mother, but Nick’s first action as a leader saw him and Luciana ambushed by an American militia group – the couple escaped death, Luciana was shot, and Nick no longer feels immortal. Recovering both emotionally and physically, Strand has his sights set on harnessing the new world’s currency, and Ofelia’s captivity will test her ability to survive and see if she can muster the savagery of her father.

Viewers can catch up on all past episodes of Fear the Walking Dead only on Hulu. The complete first and second seasons of the series are now streaming at hulu.com/fear-the-walking-dead.

The series is executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert and stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia, Colman Domingo as Strand and Danay Garcia as Luciana. Joining the cast as series regulars for season three are Dayton Callie (Sons of Anarchy, Deadwood), Daniel Sharman (The Originals, Teen Wolf) and Sam Underwood (The Following), who will play the Otto family, founders of a survivalist organization who prepared for the fall of democracy, but didn’t anticipate the rise of the dead, as well as Lisandra Tena (Chicago P.D.) as Lola Guerrero.

The Walking Dead Season 7 Finale Recap

The Walking Dead Season 7 Finale Recap

The Walking Dead Season 7 finale recap

Let’s start in the jail cell, where Rick has his gun to Dwight’s head. He wants Negan dead, but can’t do it himself; “they’re all Negan.” He weakly defends himself for killing Denise, which makes Daryl throw him against the wall, a knife millimeters from his eye. Tara eggs him on; so does Dwight. Dwight admits what he did was for someone else (his wife); now that she has escaped, he doesn’t want to help Negan. Daryl eventually puts his knife down, and Rosita points out that Sasha is over there. Dwight may be their only chance to get her back. Tomorrow, Negan and his crew return to Alexandria. Dwight offers to slow them down, buying Rick time to get set up. They take them all out, then Dwight will radio back and tell the Sanctuary that everything went well. Rick’s team will drive the trucks back, and with the right plan, they can take down the Sanctuary. Dwight is certain they can get the workers on his side, then they will go from outpost to outpost, taking out every last Savior. They agree, and Dwight goes back home. Regardless of how it turns out, Daryl still wants to kill him. “If he’s lying, this is already over,” Rick warns.

At the Sanctuary, Negan brings Sasha breakfast (pancakes with a happy face drawn in blueberries). He tells her his plan, which we don’t hear, save for the epilogue: Lucille gets her three. Sasha cries a little and agrees to the plan, but doesn’t believe anyone has to die. As a compromise, Negan decides only one person has to die.

Maggie rallies the troops at the Hilltop. Apparently the little getaway Gregory went on last week was permanent. Maggie is considering whether or not to lead the Hilltop into war. Enid gives her Glenn’s watch while she considers her options.

Carol has taken lead over the Kingdom’s troops. They come across Morgan, who was going to ambush the Saviors on his own. Ezekiel speaks to Morgan, who admits he wants the Saviors dead. He encourages Morgan to join them. Shiva is helping out; why not Morgan?

IMG_0636

The Scavengers arrive at Alexandria. In one of the funniest moments of the season finale, Jadis asks Michonne if Rick is “hers.” She asks if she can lay with him after. Michonne is dumbstruck for a moment, then suggests they get back to work. Rick backs away slowly, weirded out. Jadis shrugs. Can we take a moment to discuss the Scavengers? The apocalypse has only been going on for a few years now. Why would Jadis feel the need to devolve so significantly? It’s not just asking to share Rick; it’s the way she speaks. And how did she convince a big group of people to devolve with her?

Anyway, Daryl, Aaron, and Rosita work with a couple of Scavengers to set up explosives outside the wall. Michonne sets up a blonde Scavenger at a sniper point, but wants to split up so they have more sight lines. The blonde will take another position, but promises “we win.”

True to his word, Dwight felled a number of trees in the road, slowing down the Saviors’ approach on Alexandria. While the muscle is clearing the trees, Eugene asks Negan for the chance to speak to Rick first, not go in with guns hot.

Bird calls are exchanged as the Saviors approach Alexandria. Everyone is ready, in position, with the Scavengers hiding so they won’t be seen by the Saviors. Rick was not expecting Eugene to be at the fore of this caravan, calling to him over a megaphone, telling them compliance is their only chance to survive. “Will you comply, Rick?” Rick asks for Negan. “I’m Negan,” is Eugene’s answer, which sickens Rick. He weighs his options, then signals sadly to Rosita, who looks away as she presses the button. Rick ducks; nothing happens. The explosions are a dud. Then the Scavengers pull their weapons on the Alexandrians. It was all a set up. When Rick asks Jadis why, she just shrugs. “Made a better deal.”

Negan is mock-surprised that Rick would blow up Eugene, one of theirs. “You people are animals!” Dwight and Simon stand up a coffin on the flatbed truck, next to Negan. He says Sasha is in the coffin, alive and well. “I brought her so I wouldn’t have to kill you all.” Negan makes his demands: he wants every gun they have, every last bit of lemonade, a person of his choosing for Lucille, he wants Daryl back, and a pool table. If he doesn’t get that, Sasha dies, then all of you, “probably.” Rick wants to see Sasha.

IMG_0637

Throughout the episode, we have seen tight close-ups of Sasha in the dark, listening to an iPod, and thinking back to the last conversation she had with Abraham, trying to convince him not to go on the trip to take Maggie to the Hilltop. I hate when they do these little scenes that are trying to be misleading, peppered through the episode, then colliding with a big “ohhhh” at the end of the episode. Anyway, at this point we go back to when Negan and his crew are loading up to head to Alexandria. Negan tells Sasha she doesn’t have to ride the whole way there in the coffin, but Sasha could use the nap. She just needs a bottle of water, and she will be fine. Eugene gives her the iPod to keep her company on the trip, which should last a few hours. Before she gets in the coffin, Negan actually sounds genuine when he tells her how much he appreciates what she is doing. He won’t be saying that soon. Once Sasha is sealed in the coffin, she turns on the iPod and takes out the suicide pill Eugene made her. She swallows it.

So now, when Negan opens the coffin, zombie Sasha ambles out in an awesome reveal and lunges onto Negan. Carl takes this opportunity to shoot the Scavengers. Other Alexandrians follow his lead, and gunfight erupts all over the community. One of Negan’s men pulls Sasha off his leader, and she chomps on him. Simon grabs Negan and pulls him to safety. Jadis shoots Rick in the leg and kicks him off the guard tower. Daryl shoots a Scavenger and takes his weapon. On the sniper post, Michonne has been accosted by the blonde, who bashes her head into the ground. Jadis forces Rick through the streets at gunpoint.

Rick is forced to kneel beside Carl, who is positioned in front of Negan. Jadis reaffirms her deal with Negan, for 12 people. Negan renegotiates for 10. “People are a resource.” They stare each other down, but eventually Jadis caves. She will take 10. Negan turns his attention to the Grimes men, taunting them. From the sniper post, there is a scream and someone falls. Negan taunts Rick about losing someone he loves.

This really irked me. The producers clearly wanted the audience to think that Michonne died. But there was no way that screechy scream came from Michonne, whose voice is too deep and who I don’t believe would scream if she was pushed to her death. Obviously, Michonne isn’t dead, but Rick believes she is, and the audience is supposed to believe this as well.

IMG_0639

But back to Negan’s extended blathering. He promises to try to kill Carl in one swing, “because I like him.” Rick stares him down. “I told you already I’m gonna kill you, all of you,” Rick spits. “Nothing is gonna change that. You’re all already dead.” Negan just giggles, then takes off Carl’s hat. He swings Lucille back, but before the bat can connect, Shiva pounces on one of Negan’s men, scaring the hell out of Negan. Shiva for the win! The Kingdom cavalry has arrived, followed closely by the Hilltop. (Did they run into each other on the way in?) Negan is shocked that they have a tiger, then is more shocked when he sees Maggie is alive and well and really good with a gun.

It is full-out war. Negan hides. Shiva attacks Saviors. Morgan grabs a gun and fights at Rick’s side. Gabriel has an automatic rifle. A Scavenger sends up a flare, and several people toss in homemade smoke bombs. It looks like scenes from a Vietnam movie.

Eventually, the Saviors and the Scavengers fall back. Negan escapes in a truck, giving Alexandria the finger as they go. Aaron leads a team to close the gate, which seems to be stuck on something. Ezekiel insists they finish this, but by the time Daryl climbs atop a truck to see over the wall, everyone is gone.

Rick and Carl rush to what they fully expect is Michonne’s corpse, but find the blonde Scavenger. Upstairs, they find Michonne, badly beaten but alive.

Back at the Sanctuary, Dwight assures Negan that, say the word, and they are ready to roll out. Negan turns to Eugene suspiciously, and asks how Sasha ended up dead in the coffin. Eugene determines she suffocated. Negan isn’t so sure, but he has more important things to worry about. “We are going to war!”

Maggie has a vaguely sappy voice over footage of the Alexandrians in the aftermath. She talks about how she did this for Glenn, that he was the one that put them on this path, turned them into family. Some people walk the perimeter, checking the damage. Jesus and Maggie find zombie Sasha and Maggie, tearfully, puts her down. Gabriel has a funeral service for the dead. Carol sits beside Morgan on the porch. Maggie, Rick, and Ezekiel, now united, address the people about the next move.

Daryl, checking out the front gate, finds what was jammed in the track. One of Dwight’s wooden figures. “Didn’t know” is carved onto its back.

The Walking Dead Episode 714 Recap and Preview for Next Week

The Walking Dead Episode 714 recap and preview for next week

Maggie is making a life for herself at the Hilltop, one which makes Gregory uneasy. Before Rosita showed up, asking Sasha for help to bring down Negan, Sasha, Maggie, and Jesus were already writing up battle plans, teaching the “cannon fodder” how to fight, and sketching maps of the Saviors’ compound.

Sasha is caught by Jesus when she steals a couple of bullets from a hollowed out book in his trailer. He knows that she and Rosita are going after Negan. Jesus and Enid want to join them, but Sasha insists that they need to stay there, protect Maggie and the Hilltop. Jesus isn’t going to stop them, but wants her to wait until they have more people. Sasha is stubborn and refuses. Enid is going to tell Maggie what is going on in ten minutes. What Sasha chooses to do in those ten minutes is up to her. But there is no time. The watchtower raises the alarm: the Saviors are coming. Enid rushes Daryl and Maggie into a root cellar to hide, where Maggie insists she and Daryl hide behind shelves and other things. Just in case. Sasha and Rosita escape through a secret tunnel Sasha made when Maggie mentioned they should have a quick way to escape.

Simon and a throng of Saviors pay Gregory a visit in the main house. He is there for a certain someone….

Rosita is trying to hotwire a car when the necklace that Abraham gave Sasha falls out of her shirt. Rosita points out with vitriol that she made it. The car is dead, so they move on, and Sasha tries to make small talk. Rosita has no interest, and only wants to talk about the mission. Sasha steps away for a moment, taking a deep breath, before returning to angrily lay out her plan. They both have a different idea of how the mission should go. Sasha wants to set up in a neighboring building and sniper Negan. This way they may make it out alive. Rosita wants to infiltrate the compound, kill Negan up close so she is sure he is dead. No decision is made; no friendship is made, either.

IMG_0610

Enid runs to intercept a Savior who is sniffing around the root cellar. She brings him a basket of vegetables, but he doesn’t want it. Enid cannot stop him from entering the cellar, and poking around. Luckily Maggie and Daryl are well-hidden, and the Savior is an idiot. Daryl wants to kill him, but Maggie stops him. Eventually the Savior leaves with a couple boxes of produce. Maggie confronts Daryl about him almost killing the Savior; Daryl says he deserves to die. Maggie takes a different tact, and points out that since he has gotten here, he hasn’t said a single word to her. He faces her and, sobbing a little, he apologizes. Maggie assures him Glenn’s death wasn’t his fault, even though Daryl believes it was. They have a good talk, ending with a warm, tearful hug, and Maggie assuring him that she wants them all to die, too, but “we need to win.”

It turns out that Simon isn’t here for Maggie or Daryl or anyone else who is hiding at the Hilltop. He is there for Dr. Carson. “Why does Negan need two doctors?” he asks, then realizes he doesn’t. Negan’s doctor — and Carson’s brother — is dead. Carson doesn’t fight, he just asks Gregory to make arrangements for his “ongoing patients.” In exchange for the doctor, Simon leaves behind an enormous crate of aspirin. Gregory takes Simon aside to express his concerns to Simon, that he is worried that if he doesn’t have the trust of the Hilltoppers, someone else might take over, one who isn’t as willing to work with the Saviors. Simon writes down instructions on how to get in touch with him, and promises that he will take care of it. The Saviors roll out with the doctor in tow.

Having picked up a car from a car lot, Sasha and Rosita have made it to the Saviors’ compound. They are camped out in one of the abandoned buildings around the compound. Through her sniper’s sight, Sasha sees Eugene hard at work in front of the walker pit, ordering around underlings. With nothing left to do but talk and practice tying knots, the girls talk. Sasha is lucky that they found Rosita – she knows how to do everything. She admits she learned it all from a trio of brothers she hooked up with when the world first fell apart. A lot of guys wanted to protect her, and she hated not knowing how to protect herself. So she watched them, picked up everything they did, and did it better than they did. Then she would “pounce.” I am assuming she would kill them. She admits the sex was “just for fun,” but it was different with Abraham. She was drawn to him because he saw she could handle herself. She admits to having trouble accepting that, once they got to Alexandria, they “made it,” and she thought she hated Sasha, but it was just the situation. Rosita never told any of that to anyone, and she feels bad that she never told Abraham she was happy that he was happy. Sasha doesn’t like knowing that Abraham would have wanted to go out fighting, and Rosita agrees. “It wasn’t his time.” The girls promise that they have each other’s backs, and now they are besties!

IMG_0608

Before things can get too sappy, the trucks roll up and Sasha takes her place behind her rifle. They are worried when they see Maggie’s doctor is now a captive. Negan comes outside, but Sasha can’t get a clean shot. They turn on the walkie and hear Eugene making proclamations about being the chief engineer, also that he is Negan, etc. Rosita is done waiting. “We’re going in.”

Jesus goes in to see Gregory, who warns him that he has been slacking on his scavenging and recruiting duties. He also has noticed too many people living in his trailer, something he views as a “fire hazard.” Jesus accuses him of trying to separate and isolate people, and Gregory issues a warning: “You better watch what you say. You never know what will happen with the Saviors around.” Jesus takes this as a threat and leaves when a Hilltopper brings Gregory his requested bottle of tequila. Out in the lobby, Jesus runs into Daryl, who asks where Sasha and Rosita are.

Eugene is going over new safety protocols with another Savior. A bullet takes the guy out cleanly, and Eugene drops, terrified. Rosita is there and tells Eugene they are breaking him out. He refuses to go with them, and goes back inside, crying. Pissed off, Rosita decides she is going in. Sasha tells her to watch her back while she cuts open the fence. She does, and Sasha soon appears on the other side of the fence and tells Rosita to go. “It’s not your time.” She runs towards the buildings, shoots a guy as he comes outside and slips through the door before it closes. Rosita turns and runs. A safe distance away, she stops to catch her breath and cry while cursing Sasha. She is quieted by someone watching her from the distance. We don’t see who it is, and I think the idea is that it is supposed to be someone threatening, but I feel like it is just Daryl.

‘Walking Dead’ boss says Season 7 finale will be ‘the end of a chapter’

TwitterFacebook

The Walking Dead is rapidly approaching 100 episodes (time flies when you’re crushing zombie skulls like watermelons), but according to its showrunner Scott Gimple, they’re not planning on cancelling the apocalypse any time soon. 

The series has already been renewed for Season 8, but Gimple apparently has his sights set on a much loftier goal.

«Episode 801, the first episode of Season 8, is gonna be the 100th episode. The first episode is less about that we reached 100 episodes, it’s more about setting up the next 100 episodes,» he revealed during a panel at Los Angeles’ annual PaleyFest television festival on Friday night. «The end of this season is very much the end of a chapter; it’s a conclusion that promises this epic story ahead. It’s about setting up this gigantic, epic tale to come, not only in Season 8, but beyond.» Read more…

The Walking Dead Episode 712 Recap and Previews for Next Week

The Walking Dead Episode 712 recap and previews for next week

Rick and Michonne are searching for guns and supplies. So far they haven’t had much luck (but they have had some good sex). After two days, Michonne wants to go back, but Rick insists they stay out a little longer. While Rick is dozing in the van, Michonne sees a deer. She returns to the van to get her gun, waking Rick in the progress. The deer has disappeared by the time they return for it, and Rick promises her he owes her a deer. They start looking for it – and find something much, much better.

A school, complete with a carnival in progress, became a military outpost. All of the soldiers are now zombies, wandering around. They climb up to the roof of the school to get a better look at things and see that all of the zombie-soldiers still carry their weapons. Michonne shoots at a can-shooting game and when she hits the target, decides they can take them all on. Suddenly the roof collapses, and Michonne and Rick fall through. They are not hurt, though – they giggle, and Michonne thinks it’s a “sign.” Rick points excitedly – there are pallets and pallets of unopened military meals ready-to-eat. That night, they have themselves a candle-lit feast of chili and mac n’ cheese. Once they kill Negan, Michonne points out that it is up to them to reorder the world. Rick points out that each community needs to be involved, but Michonne still thinks someone needs to lead them. She thinks that someone should be Rick. He thinks it should be the two of them together. As far as I’m concerned, that pretty much sounds like a marriage proposal.

The next day, they head out to the carnival and set out a plan. Rick will kill one zombie wandering around a car, then push the car to block a hole in the fence. Meanwhile, Michonne is left to take on eight walkers. “You can handle it,” Rick assures her. And she can. Rick is the one who has a problem, trying to remove a walker that is jammed in the windshield. It takes him three tries, and Rick finally removes him – in three separate chunks. He puts the car into neutral and Michonne pushes while he steers the car. Suddenly they are under fire. A soldier has impaled himself on some spikes, and his gun is caught. Michonne jumps into the trunk and the car coasts… right through the hole in the fence. They overshot it.

IMG_0586

The pair make it out of the car and jump over a tiny fenced area, around a kid’s play area. This holds off the walkers long enough that they can kill three of them, but then they run into the carnival proper. They split up, each taking up position behind more sturdy ride gates: Michonne with a giant slide, and Rick with the Ferris wheel. It is a slaughterfest. They pause to catch their breaths and call out their remaining walkers to each other. She has eight; he has ten. But then Rick sees something – the deer. The zombies are unable to get past the barrier, so he climbs the Ferris wheel and takes aim. The wheel gives out, he falls, and is set upon by a flood of zombies. Michonne, finished with her eight, rushes over to help her fallen mate. She hears Rick shooting from behind a wall of walkers, but then the chamber clicks empty. By the time she gets to the zombies, they have descended onto their meal. Michonne drops her sword, consumed with grief. She can hardly be bothered to defend herself when the walkers move towards her.

Now, I don’t know if the producers thought they were actually fooling anyone with this scene, but obviously the zombies were munching on the deer, not Rick. And in case that wasn’t clear, Rick crawls out from a cubby, and throws Michonne her sword like some kind of action movie. She grabs it like He-Man and they kill the rest of the mob before she rushes into his arms. “I tried… I still owe you one,” he says, referring to the deer. The duo pick through the remains, collecting lots and lots of guns. Michonne collapses, emotionally. After stocking the van with as much as they can, they drive off, but Michonne’s dour mood remains. Rick stops the van and turns to her. He admits he hasn’t been sleeping, thinking about what they lost. He is still really broken up about Glenn. Rick promises that they are going to fight the Saviors, but warns that they are going to lose people, maybe a lot, and they might lose each other – but it will be worth it. “I can’t lose you,” Michonne argues, but Rick reminds her that they can lose each other, their friends, the people they love, because it’s not about “us” anymore. It’s about the future.

Meanwhile, Rosita and Tara are both dealing with their own nonsense. Tara can’t decide if she should tell Rick about the community of women she found. She wants them to fight with them, but worries they will just fight against them in the desire to go back to hiding. Rosita is mad at everyone because she didn’t kill Negan when she (maybe) had the chance. She blames Gabriel because she listened to him tell her not to do it.

IMG_0590

Rick and the Alexandria team deliver the guns to Jadis. They brought 68 guns, but it is not enough for Jadis. She and Rick negotiate terms, and they finally agree that Rick’s group will go out and find more guns, but they get to keep some of them to defend themselves while they search. Rosita looks pissed. Tara looks worried.

Back at Alexandria, Rick is looking for Rosita. She missed her guard shift. Tara doesn’t know where she is… but she has something to tell Rick.

Rosita missed her shift because she has slipped away to the Hilltop, where she finds Sasha at Abraham’s grave. Rosita is here because she needs Sasha’s help. Sasha knows what she wants and agrees to help, with one condition: “I get to take the shot.” Rosita agrees, and shows Sasha the weapons she brought. She didn’t bring any of the explosives because she didn’t want anyone to notice they were gone. Rosita is annoyed that Rick and Michonne are taking so long to get the attack on the Saviors going. She warns Sasha that it is a one-way ticket for both of them.
