The Walking Dead

Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead surprised viewers in more ways than one. While everyone is focusing on this new murderer who now haunts the halls of the prison — we hear whoever fed the walkers rats and whoever killed Karen are likely the same person — the writers slid in a very poignant scene that may have gone unnoticed.
The Walking Dead Season 4 brings a "smorgasbord of threats" to test each character
After getting injured, Michonne...
The roar of Norman Reedus's motorcycle engine cuts through the tranquil Georgia field housing The Walking Dead's production trailers. Even though the actor is not listed on today's call sheet — he doesn't even appear in the episode being shot — he just can't stay away from his on-screen family.

The Walking Dead has gone through some growing pains over the last three seasons. Under former showrunner Frank Darabont, some viewers complained that the story was lagging, while under other former showrunner Glen Mazzara, the breakneck speed arguably gave some people whiplash. That's not to say each chapter didn't have its own merits, but under new showrunner Scott Gimple, the fourth season will take a more nuanced look at the zombie apocalypse that will really get to the root of each character...
The world of The Walking Dead is expanding.
On Monday, AMC announced plans for a companion series that is set in the same world, but will follow new characters, which will offer a different perspective on the zombie apocalypse. With those parameters in mind, TVGuide.com came up with six ideas for the series, which will be executive-produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert. Keep in mind that introducing new characters doesn't mean that familiar faces couldn't take center stage in the spin-off. Take a look at our list: (Warning: Comic book and series spoilers below!)
AMC is developing a companion series for The Walking Dead to launch in 2015, with Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert acting as executive producers.
Network boss Charlie Collier called the spin-off a "no brainer." "We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters," he said in a statement. "It's a big world and we can't wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse."
Season 4 of The Walking Dead, premiering in October, promises to introduce new kinds of walkers we haven't seen before on the grisly AMC thriller, including a zombie baby.
"There's a little hint of that in the premiere," says Danai Gurira (Michonne). Executive producer Gregory Nicotero says the series almost went there last season when Daryl and Maggie searched for baby formula at a day-care center.
Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus
When The Walking Dead returns this fall, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) & Co. will still be residing in the prison — but that doesn't mean we're in for a lull while the group learns how to be a community again. After all, there's still the ever-present danger of The Governor (David Morrissey), who abandoned Woodbury and left his former residents to be taken in by Rick. But how is Rick dealing in a world where nearly everyone he's gotten close to has died and his son is on a precarious path to becoming a monster? TVGuide.com turned to executive producer and comic book creator Robert Kirkman and new showrunner Scott Gimple to get the scoop on the new season and which elements of the comics will be introduced this year.

It's been one week since the dust has settled on The Walking Dead's third season finale and we're still scratching our heads.
The AMC series took a bold and surprising turn in the finale by killing off...

The Walking Dead shook things up again on Sunday's Season 3 finale by killing off another main character — and proving once and for all that the AMC series is unafraid to ax anyone, no matter what happened in the comics.
In this instance, it was Andrea (Laurie Holden), who became a polarizing character in the third season when she began literally sleeping with the enemy in the form of The Governor (David Morrisey) the charismatic leader of the supposedly idyllic town of Woodbury. (Of course, Andrea learned the hard way that The Governor is actually a sadist who rules the town with an iron fist.) Still, killing off one of the few original characters who is still alive in the comics is sure to get Dead fans talking until the series returns in October. To find out why the writers decided to kill off Andrea, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Robert Kirkman, who also dishes on what's in store for Season 4...
