The Walking Dead Boss: Shane's Living on Borrowed Time -- But Hasn't Worn Out His Welcome Yet

Jon Bernthal

As fans of The Walking Dead comic series know, Shane (Job Bernthal) has out-survived his comic counterpart by far. His survival has altered the direction of the Dead mythos from the comics and shaped the AMC series into something comic creator Robert Kirkman calls creatively fun for him.

"From the comic book standpoint, he's living on borrowed time, but the beauty of the show is that we can change things up," Kirkman tells TVGuide.com.

On Set With The Walking Dead

Andrew Lincoln

[Warning: The following story contains spoilers from the Season 2 premiere of The Walking Dead. Read at your own risk.]

"I hear we're getting shot," says an actress, smiling behind a mask of rotted teeth. "Awesome!" replies a bloody actor with an enthusiasm that's, ironically, everywhere on The Walking Dead set — from undead extras to lead actors — even after an in-house summer shake-up.

"It's jam-packed, character-wise and action-wise," says Andrew Lincoln, as electrified by the world of hungry corpses as his character, Rick, is terrorized by them. Deeper, darker and (at 13 episodes) more than... read more

Gross! The Brains Behind The Walking Dead Dissect the Premiere's Zombie Autopsy

The Walking Dead

[Warning: The following story contains spoilers from the Season 2 premiere of The Walking Dead. Read at your own risk.]

AMC's The Walking Dead has never been for the squeamish, so it should come as no surprise that the Season 2 premiere would attempt what executive producer Robert Kirkman calls "one of the grossest things we have ever come up with."

The Walking Dead looks for life after Frank Darabont

Led by Deputy Sherriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), the show's band of zombie-apocalypse survivors left Atlanta behind in hopeful search of a safe haven at an abandoned military fort. However, the gang was stalled as they reached a section of interstate that was blocked with abandoned vehicles. When Rick and Dale (Jeffrey DeMunn) spotted a "herd" of walkers approaching, everyone quickly hid under cars until the mob had passed.... read more

New York Comic-Con: The Walking Dead Promises More Scares This Season

The Walking Dead Looks for Life After Frank Darabont

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead's first season ended with a number of unanswered questions, but as the zombie drama lumbers toward its Season 2 premiere (Sunday, 9/8c, AMC), there's really only one question to be answered: Can the show live on after the exit of executive producer Frank Darabont?

Darabont, who spent years developing Robert Kirkman's graphic novel series for the small screen, was suddenly relieved of his showrunner duties in the middle of production on Season 2 and replaced by his No. 2, Glen Mazzara (The Shield). Even more confounding, the change came days after Darabont appeared at Comic-Con to promote the show. But just like the survivors of the zombie apocalypse, the show's cast and crew keep moving.

Exclusive Walking Dead Key Art: Why Is Rick All Alone?

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead fans can gorge on the AMC zombie drama's Season 2 premiere on Oct. 16. Until then, we offer an exclusive first look at the new season's (clue-filled) poster as a tasty appetizer.

The Walking Dead creator on Season 2: "This world will get more dangerous"

The first question that comes to mind: Why is Rick (Andrew Lincoln) all alone? The poster certainly continues the theme established by the striking Season 1 image of Rick riding into an abandoned Atlanta on horseback. But now that Rick's been reunited with his family and the other survivors, why is he still seen flying solo?

Our educated guess after screening the 90-minute season opener: This season will test Rick as a leader, and his decisions may end up isolating him from the other survivors. That's a concept Lincoln saw developing at the end of Season 1 when Rick led the group to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention only to learn it was far from a safe haven.
The Walking Dead creator weighs in on Season 1's biggest mystery
