The Walking Dead Panel closed out New York Comic-Con Saturday night at the Hulu Theater at MSG, and it was bittersweet, as it was Andrew Lincoln‘s last one as Rick Grimes, as this is his last season as the popular character. Chris Hardwick (The Talking Dead) moderated, and after a bunch of amazing trailers and The Walking Dead commercials, he introduced the dazzling cast and crew: new showrunner Angela Kang, Scott Gimple, co-creator Robert Kirkman, producer Dave Alpert, executive producer Gale Ann Hurd, producer and director Greg Nicotero, stars Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Melissa McBride (Carol), Danai Gurira (Michonne), and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan).
Walking Dead comic book creator Robert Kirkman will be developing Roger Zelazny‘s epic scifi-fantasy sagaChronicles Of Amber for television.
Kirkman will be adapting Zelazny’s 10-book series with his Skybound Entertainment banner partner Dave Alpert, as well as Vincent Newman Entertainment (We’re the Millers), in what THR reports could be TV’s next Game of Thrones. GoT author George R.R. Martin has often credited Zelazny as one of his biggest inspirations.
At San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, the cast and crew of AMC’s TWD prequel series, Fear The Walking Dead, hung out in Hall H gifting everyone with an exclusive trailer and premiere date, while also giving its already growing fan base some insight into how it would feel different from “the mother ship.”
Hot off the news that AMC would be moving forward with a Breaking Bad spinoff, tentatively titled Better Call Saul based on the character Saul Goodman, comes word that the network is moving forward with another spinoff based off one of their highly successful shows.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, AMC has given the greenlight for an untitled Walking Dead spinoff. The announcement was made by the network, The Walking Dead comic book creator Robert Kirkman, and executive producers Gale Anne Hurd and Dave Alpert.
