AMC has released a new featurette that explores the impressive zombie stuntwork being utilized for the upcoming fifth season of their hit series, “The Walking Dead.” Check it out in the player below!
Based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, Season Five of “The Walking Dead” premieres Sunday, October 12 at 9:00pm ET/PT. It stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chad Coleman, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney, Danai Gurira and Sonequa Martin-Green.
AMC’s highly anticipated ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 5 will premiere in a month, and fans can’t wait to see what will happen to the lead characters after a major cliffhanger at the end of the previous season.
Meanwhile, new characters will be given more depth, including Dr. Eugene Porter’s backstory which will be prominently featured.
Porter was introduced in the last season with two companions protecting him, Rosita and Abraham, as they searched for a way to Washington, D.C.
Dr. Porter believes that he has the cure for the outbreak and there is little known about his origin. The next season will shed light to his past, as the backstory about him is expected to be explored. (more…)
What is Mary (Denise Crosby) cooking is one of the greatest mysteries of Season 4? Many believed that she might be cooking Beth Greene (Emily Kinney), but that was just a wild rumour as she was spotted in the San Diego Comic-Con trailer as well as the latest one titled “Never Let Your Guard Down.” “The Walking Dead” Season 5 will showcase Mary, a character specially introduced for the TV show.
Denise Crosby talked to Moviepilot about Mary in the new season of “TWD” and how she feels to be a part of AMC’s hit zombie show.
Moviepilot asked if she is going to come up with a backstory for Mary.
“You’re going to find that as the season begins these moral conflicts will come out, this real determined, soulful woman that she is. This is the beauty of how Scott Gimple writes, he goes for these very deep, layered, human obstacles that they’re up against, and the stories we tell ourselves to make the world seem right. It was an interesting process because so little is revealed to you as you’re coming to the show and between seasons because they’re so protective of everything- I had to really sit down with Scott and have him talk to me at length about Mary and about Terminus, and about what it all really means.”
The zombie-infested TV show features mainly the characters’ struggle for survival. Surprisingly, fans are also interested on who will be hooking up amidst theirs battles against the undead. Celeb Dirty Laundry piqued the interest of many fans and dished out some of the possible couple pairings next season, including Carol and Tyresse.
According to the website, although it may seem odd that romance will spring between the two, it is possible and their previous interaction hints that they may be going for that road. Although Carol murdered his former love, she has been honest to Tyresse about it, and the two seem to have a “family-like relationship” going on. The report also mentions possible hookups between Michonne and Daryl, and between Rosita and Rick.
Meanwhile, AMC released two trailer videos for “The Walking Dead” season 5. One shows Rick Grimes in the woods shouting, “It’s not over till they’re all dead. They don’t get to live.” This trailer also shows Maggie Greene and Carol Peletier fighting walkers in the woods. In the other teaser trailer of the upcoming season, Gareth and his goons appear to torture Rick, Daryl and Glenn in Terminus.
Latest spoilers of “The Walking Dead” season 5 claim that The Governor is set to reappear next season, with a possibility that he will come back as a zombie. Moreover, other characters that are expected to come back include Beth Greene after she was kidnapped by unknown men, and the Broadcasting Woman as a zombie.
The fifth season of the zombie apocalypse series is reported to be full of deaths, which is nothing new for the fans, although AMC has not confirmed which characters will exit the series next season. The cast and crew are reportedly wrapping up filming in Atlanta. “The Walking Dead” season 5 will be back on air on Oct. 12, 9 p.m. on AMC.
In the AMC interview, Alpert was asked about elements the show has incorporated that the executive producer wishes Robert Kirkman had thought about and added when writing the comics. Instead of answering that question, Alpert noted that there are characters and premises from the comics the show can’t wait to incorporate.
“It’s more like things in the comic that I can’t wait to get to. I cannot wait until we introduce Negan. He is just like the coolest fucking character on the planet. You thought the Governor was bad news?”
