With Breaking Bad now concluded, AMC needs a viable replacement for the series, and the network may have just found it. After years of unfounded rumors, and being stuck in various stages of development hell, Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Preacher may finally be coming to the small screen, as AMC has ordered a pilot for the series be filmed.
Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC’s television adaptation of the Eisner-winning Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and drawn by Charlie Adlard, is well underway. While the survivors grapple with the apocalypse and each other, ComicsAlliance’s John Parker will be following along all season to see who lives, who dies, and who earns a deeper understanding of sacrifice, because it's just that kind of show.
Last week, Rick left Carol in both a literal and physical cul-de-sac, and there was a lot of talking, mostly about how everybody was changing and nobody liked it. This week, the prison stands on its last legs, the flu takes down lots of people we don't really care about, walkers mob the fences, and Hershel finally gets his much-deserved dap.

Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC’s television adaptation of the Eisner-winning Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and drawn by Charlie Adlard, is finally underway. While the survivors grapple with the apocalypse and each other, ComicsAlliance’s John Parker will be following along all season to see who lives, who dies, and who rises.
In last week’s premiere, the survivors were firmly entrenched in their home, where they had managed to build a thriving community behind the safety of the prison walls. Just as the episode ended, though, a new threat emerged from within the prison itself, placing everyone inside in immediate danger.
Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC's television adaptation of the the Eisner-winning comic series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore, debuted this weekend. ComicsAlliance will be following along all season to see who survives.
By the end of Season 3, Rick and the other survivors successfully repelled the Woodbury invasion, Merle was killed, Milton was killed, Andrea was killed, Carl shot a kid when he didn’t have to, The Governor gunned down his own army, and Glen Mazzara was run out of town. Having defended the prison and leaving the young and old of Woodbury without protection, Rick took in the remaining citizens, giving his own group more mouths to feed and himself more people to feel responsible for.
Last season’s finale left the viewer with a lot of questions: How would the family deal with the new responsibility? Could the prison successfully protect them all? Is The Governor coming back? Has Rick lost it? Is Carl crazy, uniquely adapted to survive in a zombie apocalypse, or just an ungrateful little snot with way too stylish a haircut for the end times? Does anybody care that Comic Book Men exists? And of course, the most important question, the theme that’s been hammered into us since the very first episode: can you do what it takes to survive in this world and still be a good person?
The fourth season of AMC's zombie drama The Walking Dead kicks off on October 13, and to get fans good and hungry (and lurchy), AMC has released a new prequel series online.
"The Oath" consists of three 25-minute episodes starring Ashley Bell and Wyatt Russell, directed by seires director/producer Greg Nicotero. Set in the early days of the TWD world's zombie outbreak, the story eventually ties in to the TWD TV storyline you know and love. You can watch the whole series after the cut.
With Breaking Bad coming to an end, AMC is one step closer to just going all in and renaming itself TWD. The US cable network is planning yet another series that will be a "companion" to its hit The Walking Dead, to go along with its already high level of Walking Dead-related programming including The Talking Dead and a Web series.

It doesn't quite have the same ring to it as "Super Dixon Bros." to me, but starting today, Activision's The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct first-person-shooter will indeed supply players with a video game adventure following Daryl and his brother Merle as they journey from Georgia to Atlanta, complete with all the requisite zombie slaying/surviving antics.
