Last season brought the culmination of “All Out War,” which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan.
Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick’s steadfast leadership. Nothing can prepare them for the formidable force they are about to encounter, which threatens the very idea of civilization that our survivors have worked so hard to build.
War is hell – especially in a walker apocalypse. The key art for season 8B of The Walking Dead foreshadows life after Carl, with Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Dania Gurira) facing the Carl-less world together.
Season 8B of The Walking Dead premieres on February 25th.
You have to wonder how much longer Rick and Co. can go on. They so rarely catch any kind of real break. The new trailer for the Winter Premiere of Season 5 suggests that this is a trend that will continue. Check it out after the jump.
The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Sunday, February 8th (9/8C).
Western Canada’s largest pop culture convention, The Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo has confirmed that original Boondock Saints’ McManus Brothers – Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery will appear at the 2013 show – which runs from April 26-28.
Reedus (who has consolidated his genre cred with the role of Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead) and Flanery (who was Young Indy on The Young Indian Jones Chronicles, as well as villainous politician Greg Stillson through six seasons of The Dead Zone) will join a roster that includes: comics legend Stan Lee; horror/thriller director John Carpenter; Weird Al Yankovic (the bestselling comedy recording artist of all time); top comics artists Adam Hughes (you name it; he’s done it) and David Finch (Batman: The Dark Knight); actors Michael Shanks (Stargate SG-1, Smallville) and Lexa Doig (Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda – she was Andromeda, Eureka, the upcoming Continuum) and the proverbial many, many more.
