There’s plenty to resolve by the back half of The Walking Dead Season 6, let alone new characters to introduce before Season 7, one of which we’ve already glimpsed on set. Before we meet the new big bad, Robert Kirkman offers a teases of a new comic-ripped force for good, as The Walking Dead prepares to introduce “Jesus” himself.

The world of The Walking Dead will change as we know it, come mid-February, as Rick and company take their first steps into a larger world, at least after a bit of house-cleaning. That expansion comes with a price, however, as series creator Robert Kirkman previews the “atomic bomb” that new series big bad Negan brings to the table, along with his “Savior” followers.
We left The Walking Dead in 2015 with way more questions than answers, not to mention some major peril, and it looks like the body parts will fly when Season 6 picks up again on February 14. Our first photos and poster heavily hint at some major comic trauma, while intel from Robert Kirkman puts plenty more threats waiting in the wings.
Just when you thought the back half of The Walking Dead Season 6 would bring enough zombies our way, Fear will strike again in April. AMC has officially set a Season 2 premiere for the prequel zombie thriller, splitting its extended episode order, and granting its own Talking Dead to boot. Technically … Fear the Talking Dead?
As The Walking Dead gears up for the back half of its sixth season and some major comic milestones, with years of issues untapped for source material, there isn’t much consideration of an end in sight. That said, AMC’s longest series only lasted seven seasons, so how long do network bosses really see it going? Might Fear, or another spinoff ever take the reigns?
We’ve had a few weeks to put the missteps of The Walking Dead Season 6 behind us, especially as midseason finale “Start to Finish” left us in the lurch of a bloody cliffhanger. Now, the first footage of February’s 2016 premiere has arrived in a new trailer, and things aren’t looking good for anyone, in or out of Alexandria.
Walking Dead fans have likely heard some of the development struggles it took getting AMC’s horror powerhouse off the ground, including an NBC that didn’t want zombies, but it seems the series very nearly looked quite different. Original showrunner Frank Darabont actually wanted ex-Punisher Thomas Jane for the role of Rick Grimes, before Andrew Lincoln came along.
There’s no arguing that The Walking Dead owes us a death or two when Season 6 returns for its latter half, but one wonders who, if any from the main cast will suffer an ignominious end. The comics point one way, but might a noticeable haircut for one series star spell an ominous fate ahead?
The dust has barely settled on The Walking Dead Season 6's midpoint, its future looking darker than ever, so how about some sun? Companion series Fear The Walking Dead has begun production on Season 2, which may move the setting to good ol’ sunny, dusty Baja, Mexico.
The Walking Dead has officially signed off 2015 by Sunday’s most recent midseason finale “Start to Finish,” but if you’re anything like us, the first half of Season 6 produced some strong reactions. Now, showrunner Scott Gimple defends the show’s credibility after the big Glenn fakeout, as well as its introduction of Negan, and what to expect in the 2016 return.
