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.

The actress, known as Tara Chambler on “The Walking Dead,” gave birth to her daughter, Marlowe, before the latest season started filming. She went right back to work and was subjected to intense online abuse after being featured on an episode late last year.

AMC Isn't Worried About 'Walking Dead' Ratings Slide

AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan on Thursday sought to ease concerns among Wall Street analysts about ratings erosion for The Walking Dead after the No. 1 show on TV ended its seventh season.

"It's pretty alive and vital and there's a long time that we're going to be playing with The Walking Dead," Sapan told the MoffettNathanson Media & Communications Summit in New York City during a session that was webcast. He conceded the seventh season ended with "some minor erosion" in overall audience ratings, but the zombie drama remains strong creatively.

'Walking Dead' Star Quits Social Media After Harassment

Josh McDermitt is heeding his own advice and taking a break from social media. The Walking Dead actor shut down his Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts after posting a final Facebook Live video about alleged death threats he received.

“Death threats, don’t send me death threats, because I will ― I’m gonna report all that sh– to the cops,” McDermitt said in the post, as captured by a user on Twitter. “I’m just sick of it. You can hate Eugene, I don’t care. I’ll argue that you’re wrong, but you can think whatever you want. But when you start saying you hope I die, I don’t know if you’re talking about Josh or Eugene. I gotta report that sh–.”

Just stop complaining about everything on the Internet,” he added. “Just go spend time with your family or friends or loved ones.”

TWD's spin-off series Fear the Walking Dead debuts its third season this summer.

'Walking Dead' Season 8 Will Move Faster

On the whole, The Walking Dead's seventh season was packed with some of the AMC series' boldest content. Multiple characters were brutally slain in true-to-the-comics fashion as Negan and his Saviors were introduced and bullied their surrounding communities.

However the most recent season of the zombie drama was shrouded with a common criticism despite delivering multiple character deaths and setting up a major war: "the pacing was slow." Week to week, fans would miss out on seeing some of their favorite characters as entire episodes were dedicated to Negan and his Saviors or Tara on an Oceanside adventure rather then explaining what Carol is up to in her isolation or how Rick plans to rally his people.

This won't be the case in Season 8. The criticism appears to have been not only heard but also applied to the coming episodes according to showrunner Scott Gimple.

'Walking Dead': Is Rick's Death Imminent?

During times of war, Rick Grimes is willing to do whatever it takes to keep his community and family safe on The Walking Dead. According to the AMC series' showrunner, that includes making the ultimate sacrifice.

Scott Gimple opened up about the tough times ahead for Rick Grimes in a recent interview, just as the series is set to begin production on its eighth season in Georgia. The showrunner's tease is consistent with series writer/creator Robert Kirkman's long running promise to kill Rick "eventually."

According to Gimple, Rick “will suffer any loss, even his own self to give his people and other people the life that they should live, where the world belongs to all of them and not just one person. A real life."

'Walking Dead' Characters Get Promoted

The Walking Dead's universe continues its annual repopulation.

Following a seventh season that parted ways with four series regulars, the AMC zombie drama has promoted Steven Ogg (Simon), Katelyn Nacon (Enid) and Pollyanna McIntosh (Jadis) to full-time roles.

All told, the list of series regulars for season eight now stands at 19, with the trio joining Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Chandler Riggs (Carl), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Melissa McBride (Carol), Lennie James (Morgan), Lauren Cohan (Maggie), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Alanna Masterson (Tara), Josh McDermitt (Eugene), Christian Serratos (Rosita), Seth Gilliam (Father Gabriel), Ross Marquand (Aaron), Austin Amelio (Dwight), Tom Payne (Jesus), Xander Berkeley (Gregory) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan).

Is Glenn Returning to 'The Walking Dead'?

The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere took out a pair of fan-favorite characters as Negan introduced himself to the group as a man who means business. Both Abraham and Glenn wound up meeting Lucille as their brains were bashed in before their friends and family.

Before the season would end, Abraham Ford would return to the series for the Season 7 finale as Sasha's death neared and she remembered her last day with Abraham.

Naturally, Abraham's return sent fans of the AMC series to Fantasyland, hoping to see Glenn return for a scene or twenty with Maggie. As it turns out, Fantasyland might actually be a reality.

In a recent chat with TVLine, showrunner Scott Gimple revealed that seeing Glenn actor Steven Yeun on The Walking Dead is "certainly possible."

“I’d be silly to say it isn’t," Gimple added.

'Walking Dead' Might Make a Big Time Jump

The Walking Dead reached its not so thrilling conclusion earlier this week, with yet another showdown between the Alexandria group and the Saviors. Rick and his team were prepared for all-out war when Negan and Lucille came a-knocking, but the action just kind of dribbled out over the hour. Rick was made to kneel once more, but it was in front of Jadis, the leader of the Scavengers, who all speak in broken English for whatever reason. In any case, their fight turned into a free-for-all when a Hilltop group and the Kingdom joined in, but Negan and some of his Negans lived to fight another day. Now it looks like the real all-out war will happen in season eight—unless of course, the time jump from the comics makes its way to the show.

Showrunner Scott Gimple tells The Hollywood Reporter that he and his writers have been eyeing Robert Kirkman’s leap forward in the comics. There was a pretty significant jump at the 127th-issue mark, which showed us that a real Alexandria Safe Zone is eventually established in Rick’s lifetime. Gimple would only say that they’ve been considering it, but neither he nor Kirkman would confirm its deployment, or how many years we’d skip forward.

Are the Comics the Problem with 'The Walking Dead'?

The Walking Dead wrapped up its seventh season Sunday, with an action-packed finale where a CGI tiger mauled two Saviors to death as Rick and the rest of Alexandria finally clashed against Negan and the Saviors. It's an unwritten television rule that any effective use of a CGI tiger means said episode of television isn't a total disaster. So even though The Walking Dead didn't address Gregory leaving the Hilltop, or whatever Heath has been doing for the past half season (short answer: 24 Legacy), the series wrapped up season seven on an encouraging note.

But on the whole, make no mistake: This was the worst year The Walking Dead has had in its seven-year run. Critics weren't kind to the show from the outset, with two beloved characters beaten to death with a barbed-wire-covered baseball bat after an unnecessary cliffhanger at the end of the previous season. It wasn't that the moment itself was terrible — Negan's introduction is an infamous moment in the comics, and should be faithfully adapted — but the show lingered on the gore and glorified Negan's bravado. It was unremitting torture porn.

Now, it would be one thing if the critics hated the show but it was still a hit — look at, of all things, Netflix's Iron Fist. However, viewers responded to the dip in quality by not showing up. The series hit its lowest ratings in years, which is the first sign The Walking Dead might actually be vulnerable in the long term. In other words, AMC might've ended season seven on a promising note, but they've still got work to do heading into season eight.

'Walking Dead' Finale Hits Five-Year Ratings Low

The Season 7 finale of The Walking Dead certainly wasn’t riding on TV easy street on a Sunday that saw the return of WrestleMania, a steady Academy of Country Music Awards on CBS, the season-high-hitting Big Little Lies finale on HBO, the penultimate episode of Homeland‘s latest season and the series finale of Black Sails on Starz.

The nearly 90-minute “The First Day Of The Rest of Your Life” episode of The Walking Dead on April 2 snagged 11.3 million total viewers and 7.1 million among adults 18-49 for a 5.9 rating. While up 7% in total audience over its March 26 show and rising 10% in the key demo, the finale directed by executive Greg Nicotero dropped 20% in viewers and 14% in 18-49s from the Season 6 finale of April 3, 2016 – which saw double-digit declines from TWD’s all-time finale high of Season 5.

With all that competition Sunday night, the Live+3 results for AMC’s zombie apocalypse blockbuster might tell us the real reach of the April 2 season ender for the show based on Robert Kirkman’s comics. AMC should hope so: The Season 7 viewership and demo results are the third lowest in the show’s history behind the 5.97 million of the short Season 1 in 2010 and the 8.99 million of Season 2’s March 18, 2012 finale. Demo-wise, Sunday’s TWD is the third worst rating the show has seen, with the 3.0 and the 4.7 for the Seasons 1 & 2 enders delivering lower ratings.
