Watch The Walking Dead

Since its conception, The Walking Dead has been redefining the zombie genre. To some, it created the zombie genre. In the days, months, and years after the fall of civilization, a small, savvy, desperate and disparate group of nobodies struggles to keep themselves, along with their hope, alive in the American south. Their leader, police chief Rick Grimes, is a stoic and determined man, who's seen the best and the worst in people. He'll stop at nothing to secure the safety of his family and friends. As the troop begins to adapt to a world inhabited by the walking dead, they soon realize that the true challenge of survival lies in the evil that lurks in the power-hungry hearts of their fellow man.

'Walking Dead' Creators Sue AMC

AMC has enjoyed record ratings for The Walking Dead, but will it survive a legal apocalypse? On Monday, in what could become the biggest ever profits case in television history, and one that deserves widespread attention as merger-hungry media companies grow ever more vertically consolidated, Walking Dead co-creator Robert Kirkman and notable series producers Gale Anne Hurd, Glen Mazzara and David Alpert have filed suit against AMC with the allegation they've been massively cheated.

The new case follows the one from Frank Darabont, the show's other co-creator, who was fired as executive producer in the middle of the second season and is demanding $280 million in an accounting lawsuit that has reached the summary judgment phase. Now, the other key creatives on the series are targeting significant damages of their own. With the participation of Kirkman, whose comic books served as source material for Walking Dead, and Hurd and Alpert, who continue to work on the series, AMC finds itself in court against those whose ongoing involvement is crucial to Walking Dead's and perhaps AMC's future.

The Walking Dead and its spin off, Fear the Walking Dead, have seen substantially falling ratings over their most recent seasons.

Norman Reedus Hits the Beach in Costa Rica

Life's a beach for Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus. The new couple was spotted soaking up the sun and spending some quality time together at a beach in Costa Rica on Thursday, August 10.

In the photos, Kruger, 41, wore a black, one-piece bathing suit with an open back that showed off her toned figure as she sat on the sand and took a dip in the water.

Her partner, 48, hit the water wearing a full wet suit and surfed the Costa Rican waves while she looked on from the shore.

The couple have been maintaining a long-distance relationship because of their demanding work schedules.

'Walking Dead' Creator Leaves AMC

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman is on the move.

In a stunning move, Kirkman and his Skybound Entertainment company have exited their overall deal with longtime home AMC in favor of what is said to be a sizable two-year overall deal with Amazon Studios.

Under the pact, Kirkman will develop TV projects exclusively for Amazon's Prime Video platform, which will also have a first-look deal with Skybound.

Skybound co-presidents of film and television Bryan and Sean Furst will oversee the Amazon project slate in conjunction with Kirkman and Alpert.

What's the Deal with the 'Walking Dead' Time Jump?

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the Walking Dead comic book series.]

Robert Kirkman wanted viewers of The Walking Dead to be curious about the time jump featured at the end of the season-eight trailer released at Comic-Con. And for those questioning just how the mysterious scene featuring an elderly Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) will unspool, Kirkman said the answer will come very soon.

"I'm pretty sure you'll learn in the first episode what that means," Kirkman told reporters Saturday at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour; he was there to support AMC docuseries Visionaries.

Season eight of The Walking Dead, Kirkman confirmed, will follow the All Out War arc from the comics as Rick and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) go head-to-head. In Kirkman's comics, which the AMC drama is based on, Rick and his band of survivors jump forward in time after the war with Negan as the source material explores their vision of a brighter future.

One key point that seems to confirm the show is indeed taking on the time jump is the fact that older Rick is in need of a cane — which [spoiler alert from the comics!] his comic book counterpart needs after sustaining an injury in the fight against Negan.

'Walking Dead' Creator Talks About Stuntman's Death

Following the tragic death of a stuntman on the set of “The Walking Dead” Season 8, the entire cast and crew is reportedly dealing with the grief in their own way. At least, that’s what the series creator had to say when asked at a recent Television Critics Association (TCA) panel.

As previously reported, AMC was forced to tell the press that it would not be having its regular “The Walking Dead” panel at the TCA fall press tour. Scott Gimple and other producers were reportedly attending the funeral of stuntman John Bernecker, who died early this month after suffering an injury during an on-set accident. While the funeral overlapped with AMC’s time at the TCA, series creator Robert Kirkman was still there to field what few questions he was able to. Naturally, he was asked about the recent tragedy and how it would affect the show going forward.

“No storylines were changed, you know, that was a tragic accident. It wasn’t story related, it was just a freak accident that happened on set and it’s something that we’re dealing with, but it hasn’t affected the storyline in any way,” Kirkman said, per Deadline. The 38-year-old writer went on to explain that the cast and crew are dealing with it. “It’s a tragedy, so it’s something that everyone is dealing with in their own way, and it’s something that will continue to stick with us for years to come.”

'Walking Dead' Producers to Skip Press Tour for Stuntman's Funeral

The Walking Dead producers have canceled their upcoming Television Critics Association press tour panel to attend stuntman John Bernecker's funeral, AMC announced on Thursday, July 27.

Showrunner Scott Gimple and more were expected to promote the show in Beverly Hills on Saturday.

As previously reported, Bernecker died at age 33 after sustaining a severe head injury on set. He was transferred to an Atlanta hospital after he fell more than 20 feet to a concrete floor during a stunt.

Last week, Gimple paid tribute to Bernecker during the show's Comic-Con panel in San Diego. "John passed away this week after he was injured doing something he loved — helping tell stories that excite, entertain, and give people escape," he said at the time. "John was someone beloved in the stunt community, someone who trained other people and helped them break into the business. He was living his dream, and he helped other people do the same thing."

'Fear the Walking Dead' to Cross Over with 'Walking Dead'?
"This is evolution."   After a major end to the first half of its third season, Fear the Walking Dead marched into Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con victorious, ready to meet the show's fans, share some stories and tease what's to come when the series returns to AMC on Sept. 10.    Naturally, a panel about The Walking Dead's universe wouldn't be complete without a little talk about a potential crossover between the two shows. Leave is to executive producer Robert Kirkman to keep the possibility alive in the eyes of fans.   "It's really a question of timeline. The Walking Dead season eight is so far ahead of Fear the Walking Dead season three," he said. "I think that it's something we'd love to try and work out. I think the fans would love it. It's complicated because of that gap but it's something we'd love to do eventually."   Read the rest of this article at The Hollywood Reporter.   The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus.  
'Walking Dead' Resumes Production

The Walking Dead on Monday resumed production of season eight, an AMC spokesperson confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter, five days after the on-set death of stuntman John Bernecker. On Sunday, castmember Pollyanna McIntosh posted on Instagram that production would resume the next day.

“As I prepare to work again tomorrow I'm again thinking of John's friends and family and of John,” reads the post, also on Twitter. “My heart goes out to you all and to the rest of your set family and families who've known John and his art.”

AMC president Charlie Collier flew in from Los Angeles to be on set Monday for the production’s resumption, sources told THR.

Bernecker died in an accident when he fell from a balcony and struck a concrete floor at least 22 feet below, missing protective padding by what a witness told a Coweta County, Ga., sheriff’s deputy was “just inches.”

'Walking Dead' Creator's Abusive Emails Revealed by Lawsuit

The history of Hollywood is littered with legendary freak-outs — think David O. Russell's berating of Lily Tomlin on the set of 2004's I Heart Huckabees, or Christian Bale's Terminator Salvation tantrum in 2009. Now joining that ignominious list is Frank Darabont, whose spectacularly abusive emails to AMC executives and crew during the fraught production of the first season of The Walking Dead have surfaced amid his $280 million lawsuit against the network.

Darabont, who co-created the blockbuster cable hit, was fired as showrunner from the series early in its second season. He and his CAA team are suing AMC, claiming the network squeezed him out of of tens of millions of dollars in profits by negotiating a sweetheart licensing deal with itself. In its defense, AMC has released a cache of shocking emails sent by the Shawshank Redemption writer-director during production — vituperative missives meant to bolster their case that Darabont was justifiably terminated.

Reading through them, it's easy to see why. In what is arguably most level-headed of the emails, sent on July 21, 2010, Darabont, 58, tells a creative exec at AMC whom he considers "an ally" to "stop invoking 'the writers room'" in their exchanges. "There IS no writers room... I am the writers room."

The failings of the show's writing staff and crew — and in particular the camera operators — are a repeated theme of the rants. In the same email, he singles out one pair of writers as "f**king lazy a**holes" and "overpaid con artists." After receiving what he felt was a woefully subpar script from a pair of writers, Darabont tells the exec, "If it were up to me, I'd have not only fired [them], I'd have hunted down and f**king killed them with a brick, then gone and burned down their homes."
