AMC Renews The Walking Dead for a Fifth Season!

by SuperHeroHype

October 29, 2013

In an unsurprising move, AMC has renewed their hit series "The Walking Dead" for a fifth season. Read the full press release below for all of the details. Are you excited for a fifth season of the series?

AMC announced today that it has renewed The Walking Dead for a fifth season. The number one show on television among adults 18-49, The Walking Dead returned for a fourth season earlier this month and the premiere episode set a new record for the series, delivering 20.2 million viewers, live+3, and 13.2 million adults 18-49, a new record for any non-sports cable telecast.

“We are very happy to make what has to be one of the most anti-climactic renewal announcements ever: The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “This is a show that has erased traditional distinctions between cable and broadcast. Its expanding base of passionate fans has grown every season, most recently – and most notably – with the season four premiere earlier this month, which broke viewership records for the series and became the biggest non-sports telecast in cable history. On behalf of the incredible team on both sides of the camera, thank you to the fans and here’s to more Dead.”

For season five, Scott Gimple will return as the series’ showrunner along with executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse. AMC also recently announced that it is developing a companion series to The Walking Dead, based on a new story and new characters from Robert Kirkman.

Robert Kirkman Teases Season Five of The Walking Dead

SuperHeroHype

Apr 11, 2014

"The Walking Dead" just wrapped up its fourth season a few weeks ago, setting a finale record for the series and leaving fans clamoring for more with a crazy cliffhanger. Speaking with MTV, series creator Robert Kirkman says that they're already well into breaking the story for Season 5 and already have plans for their fifth finale.

"I just turned in the second episode script for season five, and all the writers are hard at work on their individual episodes. We're pretty much halfway through the fifth season, script-wise. And we've already nailed down what our finale is, and what our overall arc of the season is. The back half of the season is taking shape very quickly, and we'll have all the scripts written by the summer…It's always interesting the way these things overlap. By the time people have seen the entirety of the season, we're already pretty much done with the writing on the first half of the next season. We're always quite a bit ahead. We'll be rolling cameras in May, so I'm very excited about that."

Kirkman also spoke about the spin-off show, which is said to be a "companion series" to the original.

"As far as the spin-off goes, I'm actively working with [Showrunner] Dave Erickson on that, and we know when our proposed release date is — although I can't tell you that, obviously. We're working towards that show, and it's gonna be awesome."

The subject of the character Negan from the comics was also brought up, whom Kirkman says they are planning to introduce to the series.

"As far as Negan casting goes, Scott (Gimple, showrunner) and I are always talking about who we would put in that, it's definitely on our minds, and there are definitely a lot of candidates. But I wouldn't expect Negan too terribly soon, although he is definitely in the plan. It's a 99% lock that he's going to be in the show eventually, so be on the lookout for that."

Season 5 of "The Walking Dead" will debut on AMC on Sundays this fall.

The Walking Dead Adds Seth Gilliam as Series Regular

SuperHeroHype

May 05, 2014

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that actor Seth Gilliam has joined the cast of "The Walking Dead" as a series regular. Details on his character are being kept under wraps for the time being, but the site theorizes that he could be playing the role of comic character Gabriel Stokes in the series. What is most interesting about Gilliam's casting is that he is the third former cast member of HBO's "The Wire" to join the series, following Chad Coleman as Tyreese and Larry Gilliard Jr. as Bob.

Check back here for more details on "The Walking Dead" season five as we learn them.

Based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, season five of "The Walking Dead" is set to air on AMC this fall.

Robert Kirkman Teases The Walking Dead Season 5 and Beyond

SuperHeroHype

Jun 26, 2014

We're just a few months away from the return of "The Walking Dead" and last time we saw our heroes, they were in a rather compact situation. Speaking with EW, series creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman assures us that we'll be getting answers in the very first episode of the fifth season.

"There's a lot going on with Terminus. In our premiere episode of season 5 we’'e going to give a ton of answers of who the people of Terminus are, what they're doing, why they're doing it, what's going on with them. And by the end of that episode you're going to have a much better understanding of what's going on with them and why they're so important to the show. Oh, and Daryl dies."

Kirkman also revealed that the gang will be getting some much needed fresh air early on in the season.

"They definitely get out of that train car. They do not spend the entirety of season 5 in that train car. It is through ingenuity and creativity and somewhat savageness that they are able to make their way out of that train car."

The outlet also asked Kirkman about the future of the series, which shows no signs of stopping.

"I'm still doing the comic and plan in doing it for many, many years. And right now the issues that we are doing as we speak is material that could be adapted into a season 10, 11, or 12 depending on how we adapt things. And we're not stopping. So five years for now we'll be doing comics that could be for season 15. Now, it's unrealistic to think it can go for that long, but if the show remains successful, the potential is there for that…. All that said, I'm just hoping and praying we make it to season 7."

Based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, Season 5 of "The Walking Dead" is currently in production and is set to air on AMC this fall.

Robert Kirkman Calls Season 5 of The Walking Dead the ‘Best Season Yet’

SuperHeroHype

Jul 17, 2014

We’re just a few months away from the return of “The Walking Dead” and series creator Robert Kirkman is already convinced it’s their best effort yet.

“I think the coolest thing about coming back to season 5 is that we really hit the ground running,” he tells EW. “What I mean by that is that we very quickly deal with the situation that we left them in — this trapped, victim situation where they’re kind of at the mercy of the people of Terminus. We really kind of expand the story from there very rapidly, so I think this is going to be a pretty fast-paced season with quite a bit going on. News is already out that Seth Gilliam has been added, and we’re bringing in new characters like we always do, and I think season 5 is going to be our best season yet. I think when people finally see the premiere, they’ll see what I’m talking about.”

Kirkman went on to talk about the addition of actor Seth Gilliam to the series, who many believe is playing the role of Father Gabriel from the comic book series.

“He’s playing a character that’s very integral to the future of The Walking Dead. Who he is is possibly a very large hint to where the story is gonna go, if you’ve read the comic book series. So, we are playing that as close to the vest as the spy photos will allow, but all will be revealed very soon.”

Based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, Season Five of “The Walking Dead” is currently in production and is set to air on AMC this fall. It stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney, Danai Gurira, Chad Coleman and Sonequa Martin-Green.
