It wasn’t too long ago that we shared the first information about a soon to come third installment in “The Walking Dead” franchise. Back then the series had no official name and it seemed to be focused on the younger generation. With the Official Comic Book “The Walking Dead” endeding (discussed HERE), the time has come to reveal the shows title, and a teaser clip. Behold “The Walking Dead: World Beyond”.
Synopsis: The series, set ten years after the apocalypse, will feature two young female protagonists and focus on “the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.” Continue reading AMC Presents: “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” Teaser Trailer→
As you read this television premiere announcement, we are still entrenched deep within the Halls of Javits for the fourth and final day of the New York Comic Con. It’s been a massive event for sure with so many sights and colorful costumes to enjoy and as has been the case for many years now, every single badge features one or more of the characters from “The Walking Dead”. The end of the 9th season left most of us awestruck with what happened and just in case you are slow to catch up on things, I will not say anything more than it was a very dismal set of circumstances. Tonight the show premieres for its 10th season and the poster, Season 9 Recap and ensemble casting are listed below.
Season 9 Recap: Eighteen months after Negan’s downfall, Rick proposes building a bridge to ease trading, but this leads to more resentment. Rick is seemingly killed when he destroys the bridge to prevent an invasion of walkers. Six years later, his absence triggers discourse between the communities, and a new walker-controlling threat named the Whisperers demand the survivors do not trespass their territory. Their leader, Alpha, has acquired a large horde of walkers that she will unleash if they do so. After her daughter Lydia abandons her mother’s group for the Kingdom’s, Alpha disowns her and massacres many residents during a fair.

Back in July, I shared the nominees for the 45th Annual Saturn Awards and you actually don’t need to refer to that post since I’ve decided to not only list the winning names with this kind of narrative but also those who each honoree went head to head against.

Back in July I shared the Season 4 trailer for the AMC Studios Original Series “Preacher” which of course is loosely based on the DC Comics Vertigo series of the same name. If you missed that posting just click HERE to see it. The series begins its final go round this evening on AMC so let’s examine the poster, some premise and casting.
The Premise: Jesse Custer is a hard-drinking, chain-smoking preacher who, enduring a crisis of faith, becomes infused with an extraordinary power. He embarks on a quest to better understand his new gift and literally finds God, alongside his trigger-happy ex-girlfriend, Tulip, and new vampire friend, Cassidy. “Preacher” is an adaptation of the intense comic book series that was done by Steve Dillon and Garth Ennis. It ran as a part of the DC Comics Vertigo imprint for “75” total issues. The show does NOT follow the general canon of the printed page.

The Press Release:
Bestselling comic book series Farmhand, created and illustrated by Rob Guillory, has been optioned for television development by AMC/AMC Studios. Guillory is set to write the pilot for the series and will executive produce alongside LaToya Morgan (The Walking Dead, Into the Badlands).
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Farmhand to AMC,” said Guillory. “I knew if I was ever going to adapt Farmhand, I’d need partners whose bold vision preserved and complemented my own, and I’ve found that with LaToya Morgan and the fine folks at AMC. Their enthusiasm for this project has been absolutely infectious, and I think together we’re going to make a show that is very unique and very special.” Continue reading Image Comics “Farmhand” Series Optioned For Television By AMC→
