Seven seasons in, we’re used to the sweat-drenched aesthetic of AMC’s The Walking Dead, given summer shoots and the Atlanta climate. Said schedule has never allowed The Walking Dead to film in truly cold, even snowy conditions, as frequently seen in the comics, for which producers discuss the potential for a standalone episode filmed in winter.

At long last, The Walking Dead will finally reconvene this Sunday to answer the question “Ugh, can Season 7 be less of a drag?” Sure, there are other questions too, including who set a dynamite new trap in a clip from Sunday’s “Rock in the Road.”
Andrew Lincoln swore that The Walking Dead would feel more optimistic in the back half of Season 7, and may actually live up to that promise. See Daryl and Carol lock and load once more in a new trailer, while Eugene surprisingly enjoys his stay with Negan, and even Rick cracks a smile!
We’ve still more than a week before The Walking Dead starts uniting communities against Negan, and we’re about ready to light this candle. Ahead of our February 12 “Rock in the Road” return, check out an extended new featurette for the back half of Season 7, as cast and crew tease a Rick and Negan conflict ready to hit the breaking point.
A hero is defined by their villains, and comic books are filled with some of the scariest and silliest bad guys around. Rogues’ Gallery aims to settle the score and determine who is the true arch-nemesis for some of our favorite heroes, and we need your help to do it!
You voted to see who the ultimate The Walking Dead villain was, and we’ve tabulated the results and assembled a video counting down the definitive top 10. Did your favorite make this list? There’s only one way to find out!
The biggest barrier for comics entry, specifically with the direct market, seems to be actually getting people into comic shops. The first comic I ever read was a black and white reprint of the first 20 or so Spider-Man comics, in the "Essentials" phonebook-sized comics Marvel used to print. It was good, in that it was my first taste of the medium, and the silly stories and characters and larger-than-life fights and situations were a lot of fun. But it didn't make me want to get up and go find a comic shop.
That changed when I discovered The Walking Dead, by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard.
We’ve come a long way from The Walking Dead teasing Negan’s Season 6 finale debut, and it’s of interest to look back at some of the early rumors for casting. Among the names floated were Justified and Santa Clarita Diet star Timothy Olyphant, though the actor now claims he’d never had anything to do with it.
We’re just over two weeks now from The Walking Dead Season 7's return, and whether or not you buy Andrew Lincoln’s passionate defense of the first half, Season 7B doesn’t appear to be wasting any time. See for yourself with a brand-new round of photos from February 12 premiere “Rock in the Road,” along with one of those ever-cryptic synopses.
Let’s be honest: even the most diehard of Walking Dead fans would admit to tough going through the first half of Season 7, between all its brutality, and unease with seeing Rick so utterly broken. We’ve heard Andrew Lincoln promising a brighter future ahead, though the actor now acknowledges some fan frustration, promising “this season made a lot more sense once we got the last roll of film in the can.”
The Walking Dead has a habit of telegraphing its punches when stars secure additional gigs outside of AMC, immediately placing targets on their character’s back. Corey Hawkins’ exit offered a surprising subversion, but stars and producers now weigh in on Sasha’s future, given Sonequa Martin-Green’s new Star Trek: Discovery role.
