Faithful fans of The Walking Dead well-know that the AMC series has only time before casting its next biggest big bad since The Governor, and that day may finally be upon us. A recent casting call unmistakably alludes to one of Rick Grimes’ most frightful enemies, and a hell of a finale to Season 6.

The first three seasons of The Walking Dead developed an unfortunate trend of killing off male African-American characters just as a new one would emerge, an issue many were quick to raise again when Season 5 killed off three more leading men of color. Now, in advance of Season 6, Dead showrunner Scott Gimple addresses the “tricky” controversy, noting the actual actors have no bearing on their character’s fate.
The Walking Dead Season 6 still has some major comic roles to cast (one of which we got an exclusive look at earlier today), but has the next big bad finally arrived? Xander Berkeley will join The Walking Dead in a major new role, but is he the comic big bad we’ve been waiting for?
The Walking Dead Season 6 has made no secret of its likelihood to adapt a few of the Robert Kirkman comic’s biggest stories, including some of its most memorable characters yet. We may yet have a line on one, as exclusive set photos from Season 6 reveal Rick, Daryl, Abraham, and one (figuratively) dead ringer for Paul “Jesus” Monroe!
The final moments of The Walking Dead’s most recent finale left us wondering where next Rick might push the safe haven of Alexandria, now that Deanna seems to have come around to more brutal methods. That attitude is all over The Walking Dead Season 6's character portraits, as Alexandria looks ready to go to war … but with whom?
The promise of safety in The Walking Dead never lasts, between campsites, farms and prisons, but Rick’s group may settle into Alexandria for the long haul. The AMC horror smash has officially updated three of Alexandria’s most notable residents to series regular for the sixth season, but is it a walker bait-and-switch?
We’re just over a month away from The Walking Dead proper’s Season 6 return, and short of any new trailers for the October 11 premiere, AMC has at least offered some stylish new key art of the continued zombie apocalypse. How, pray tell, are things going in gloomy ol’ Alexandria?
Fear The Walking Dead has helped remind fans of the AMC horror-smash what its titular corpses looked like early on, a point well contrasted with early looks at The Walking Dead Season 6's ever-increasing rot. S6 may well mark a turning point however, as producer Greg Nicotero has reached a point of requiring digital effects to continue the gruesome decay of The Walking Dead.
Overdue for a new trailer though we are, The Walking Dead Season 6 teased plenty by its first footage at Comic-Con 2015, and the subsequent weeks. Now, with production deep into Season 6, new rumors suggest that The Walking Dead has already begun filming with a new major comic character, while casting calls suggest the next big bad will make an appearance before long.
As Fear The Walking Dead explores a different angle of the zombie apocalypse well-removed from Rick Grimes and Alexandria, crossover rumors have repeatedly flown back and forth. That flight has just become literal, as Season 6 will host a series of Walking Dead shorts set on an airplane, introducing a new character for Fear The Walking Dead Season 2. Confused yet?
