The Walking Dead In Virtual Reality Was The Scariest Thing I Saw At E3

The Walking Dead in VR

"It wasn’t that the zombies were too realistic. I wasn’t afraid for my life or anything silly like that. No, when I tried The Walking Dead in VR, what I chiefly saw was this: the disturbing possibility that virtual reality might get written off as a fad."

Virtual reality was huge at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. Microsoft’s HoloLens, Sony’s Project Morpheus and the Oculus Rift were the talk of the show.

Emily Kinney and Norman Reedus Are Dating In Real Life

Emily Kinney and Norman Reedus

A new report claims that Walking Dead stars Emily Kinney and Norman Reedus are dating in real life. Kinney, 29, and Reedus, 46, might be Hollywood’s hot new couple.

The Walking Dead stars never hooked up on camera, but had a lot of chemistry in the scenes they filmed together. Kinney's beloved character, Beth was killed off the show last season. Reports claim the actors hooked up after her departure.

“They had a connection early on in the show,” a source close to the rumored new couple tells Us Weekly, “but the romance developed recently.”

Reedus has also been supporting her at her concerts. The same report that revealed they were dating claims that he was spotted at her May 21 show in Decatur, Georgia. As many Walking Dead fans know, Norman is busy filming Season Six of the series in the area, so it’s no surprise he was in town for her show.

“He was one of the first to support her at her concerts when she was still on the show,” a source revealed

Robert Kirkman Hints at Season 6

Robert Kirkman Hints at Season 6

The Walking Dead writer and Executive Producer, Robert Kirkman discussed the show’s future with AMC President Charlie Collier and TV's Glenn, Stephen Yeun at the 2015 National Association of Broadcasters Show earlier this week.

Season 6 will be more about the threat of Walkers, hinted Kirkman, "It's taking us back to a time when the walking dead were much more dangerous and a much more ever-present threat." Comic readers might be happy to expect the No Way Out story line.

According to Kirkman, The Walking Dead is also about to get a lot more of Rick and Morgan. In trademark Walking Dead pre-show hinting style, Kirkman provided few actual details about the upcoming sixth season of the show, but he said the dynamic between those two characters that was set up at the end of last season will carry throughout the next.

“Having Rick and Morgan together, finally, again is a huge deal, and it’s definitely going to be a big part of Season 6,” Kirkman said.

“Now it’s a very different Rick and a very different Morgan who are going to have a completely different relationship,” he added. “And it’s the questions of how they’re going to interact, how they’re going to work together — if they’re going to work together — and what comes from those interactions is going to be basically the spine of season six.”

There is no word yet if Lennie James, who plays Morgan, will be a season regular next year, but this may be an indication.

Rick and Morgan

Kirkman also teased “a lot of cool stuff” with Yeun’s character Glenn in the upcoming season, which may or may not involve killing off the fan favorite. Both men played coy when it came to the possibility of saying goodbye to yet another beloved “Walking Dead” character.

“We don’t kill the popular characters,” Kirkman joked, to a chorus of laughter in the room.
“If I go — that could happen,” Yeun said, adding that he’s felt lucky to be a part of the phenomenon.
If Glenn does die, it’s a pretty safe bet he won’t go down without a fight.

“The way that we make the show — the writers and everybody really want to focus on making things poignant and purposeful and meaningful,” Yeun said. “So if it were for Glenn to go, then it’s probably going to be awesome.”

If Glenn makes it past Season 6, Kirkman and Collier are both fairly confident that The Walking Dead is a series that could live on for years to come.

“This isn’t the kind of show where the creative team is going to say, ‘It’s important to us that we end it here,'” Kirkman said. “The story that we’re trying to tell is so big, and the framework is set in the comics — I’m producing more than 12 issues a year. All of that stuff is stuff that we would like to someday adapt into the show.”

“Our long-term goal was to tell this unrealistically massive huge story, so by going season after season after season, we actually are maintaining the integrity of what we originally set out to do,” Kirkman added. “So I think there’s a possibility to go for many, many years.”

“I do think the evolution of this story and how fresh it becomes, and how real it is … and relatable, makes it something that can go for a long while,” the AMC president said.

Two Seasons Already Orded forWalking Dead Companion Series

Walking Dead Companion Series

AMC today announced that it has placed an initial two-season order for a companion series toThe Walking Dead, the #1 show on television among adults 18-49 for going on three seasons.

The new series (title to be announced) will be set in Los Angeles and focused on new characters and storylines. The show’s first season will consist of six one-hour episodes and premiere on AMC in late summer. The show’s second season will air in 2016.

Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert from The Walking Dead are executive producers of the new series, which, like the original, is being produced by AMC Studios. Dave Erickson (Marco Polo, Sons of Anarchy), who co-created and co-wrote the pilot with Kirkman, is an Executive Producer and Showrunner. 

Two Seasons Already Orded forWalking Dead Companion Series

The series will star Cliff Curtis (Missing, Gang Related), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, Sons of Anarchy), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm).

“We take incredibly seriously the notion of building a satisfying companion series to the number one show on television. From the beginning of The Walking Dead on AMC, we’ve been asked questions about what was going on in other parts of the zombie apocalypse, and what it looked like as the world really did ‘turn.’ Through this new series, we’re going to find out,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “Robert Kirkman, Dave Erickson and their writing team, along with an incomparable set of producers, cast and crew have created something remarkable and clearly distinct. We respectfully follow the request of Monty Python as we bring out (the latest of) our Dead.”

“We feel empowered by this two-season commitment, a serious show of faith from our network partner AMC,” Kirkman said. “I personally take it as a sign that they believe, like we do, that we’ve accomplished our goal of developing something original that can pay tribute to the original show and expand the world I created while at the same time having something new to say with this story. I’m very grateful that we now have the opportunity to tell this amazing story and show the fans that we really haven’t scratched the surface yet when it comes to The Walking Dead.”

“This vote of confidence from our partners at AMC is gratifying, to say the least,” Erickson said. “We’ve been blessed with amazing writers and a stellar cast — and we can’t wait to build this apocalyptic drama over the next two seasons and hopefully beyond.”

Season Five Easter Eggs in Episode Titles

Season Five Easter Eggs in Episode Titles

The Season Five Episode 12-16 titles are:

  • "Remember"
  • "Forget"
  • "Spend"
  • "Try"
  • "Conquer"

These one-word titles are all connected, which doesn’t seem to be the case with the previous two titles, “What Happened and What’s Going On,” and “The Distance.”

What connects them? The Spoiling Dead Fans posted about this on Tumblr. Here’s what they wrote:

The titles seem to a be a reference to a story by William Faulkner that Dale told the group around the camp fire in Season 1.  

"I like what the father said to the son when he gave him a watch that had been handed down through generations. He said: ‘I give you a mausoleum of all hope and desire which will fit your individual needs, no better than it did mine and my father before me. I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you may forget it. For a moment, now and then, and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it.’”

Wow! Dale made that speech back in Season 1, Episode 4, "Vatos" (which was written by Robert Kirkman) when asked why he still bothers to keep time. 

It is awesome that the Scott Gimple and the writers continue to reference past characters like Dale into the story.

Remember that Glenn knew where to find another battery in the RV, because of Dale’s lessons too.

We Are The Walking Dead

We Are The Walking Dead

“When I was a kid, I asked my grandpa once if he ever killed any Germans in the war. He wouldn’t answer. He said that was grown up stuff, so…. So I asked if the Germans ever tried to kill him, but he got real quiet. He said he was dead the minute he steeped into enemy territory. Every day he woke up he told himself, ‘rest in peace—now get up and go to war.’ And then after a few years of pretending he was dead, he made it out alive. And that’s the trick of it, I think. We do what we need to do, and then we get to live. But no matter what we find in DC I know we’ll be okay, because this is how we survive. We tell ourselves that we are the walking dead.

Rick Grimes rarely discusses personal details with the rest of the group, but in Season 5, Episode 10, "Them", he states what is sure to become the most iconic pieces of dialog in the series.

With Bob, Beth and Tyreese gone, everyone in the group is finding it difficult to go on, compounded by the lack of food and water (the dogs probably weren't too filling). Rick’s speech, given in a desolate barn is intended to inspire the group.


According to Andrew Lincoln, "Them" is the closest The Walking Dead has come to a  Cormac McCarthy story.

He told Entertainment Weekly:

"When I was preparing for the first season of this show I read a few things and The Road was one of them. I just thought that is a modern parable. I mean that’s what it is: It’s a kind of classic parable and that’s the closest thing I can equate it to. I think there’s a simplicity, a directness, and a poetry in that book. Certainly the script had it and I hope we’ve managed to capture that in episode 10."

What did you think of Rick's speech in Episode 10?  Did you prefer the comic version?

Support an Independent Film, Get A Signed Norman Reedus Photograph

Support an Independent Film, Get A Signed Norman Reedus Photograph

Dynamite director, Tate Steinsiek is friends with a lot of the cast of The Walking Dead! They've teamed up to try and get their independent film off the ground and need your help.

The producers asked if we could share their project info on your All Things Walking Dead because they know that our readers are hardcore TWD fans.

Temptation is constant in the human experience, but few demons are so callous and consuming as drug abuse. From Ill Willed SFX head and director Steinsiek, "Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale" explores a true story of heroin addiction and personal redemption.

Production on this independent film starring Ian Harding, Evanna Lynch, Carol Kane and more has successfully wrapped, and the producers now are asking for support for the post production process. on Indiegogo.

Based on a true story, Max Bornstein had the wit, looks, and charm that would carry him beyond the typical man's troubles. Yet, the typical man's troubles were the least of Max's worries: He was a full-time dope fiend and a part-time father working within the underground, highly illegal pornography industry.

Even in the wake of a federal investigation, Max's truest worry was his wife and two young children: A family kept in the dark about Max's reality and the walls of it caving in around him.

For contributions of $75 US, supporters can receive an autographed photo from Daryl Dixon, himself, Norman Reedus, Scott Wilson (Hershel Greene) or John Bernthal (Shane Walsh).

Tate, Norman, Jon, Scott, and all of the Dynamite team would be extremely appreciative if you'd help out by spreading the word.
