Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on “The Walking Dead” Franchise Expands with New Book Series

The Walking Dead” franchise expands with another book series. Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga, who already teamed up for four novels, are working on another four “Walking Dead” book series, with the first one scheduled to be published by Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Press on October 14.


According to Entertainment Weekly which has got its hand on the book’s cover, the first of the four novels is titled “The Walking Dead: Descent”. It follows Lilly Caul, who appears in the original comic book and is a central character in previous novel “The Road to Woodbury”, as she returns to Woodbury and attempts to rebuild it after the Governor’s failed assault on the prison. 

“I’m thrilled to be working with Jay Bonansinga on more novels,” Kirkman says of his latest collaboration with Bonansinga. “There is quite a bit of unexplored territory left in the Walking Dead universe and I think people are going to love what Jay brings to this world in this medium.” 

The Walking Dead” TV series wrapped up its fourth season in late March. It has been renewed for a fifth season by AMC.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Casting News

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on The Walking Dead Season 5 Casting News

Expect to see a lot more of Gareth in “The Walking Dead” Season 5: Andrew J. West has been promoted to series regular for the next season of the AMC hit.

This news comes less than a day after his character was first introduced on “The Walking Dead.” Gareth seems to be the ringleader of the maybe-cannibals at Terminus, who are the most deadly threat the main characters have had to face since the Governor.

The Hollywood Reporter has the news about West’s promotion, and also reveals that Alanna Masterson (Tara) and Christian Serratos (Rosita) have been upgraded to series regulars as well. Michael Cudlitz and Josh McDermitt, who play Rosita’s companions Abraham and Eugene, joined as regulars during Season 4 and will remain so next season.

Many fans are comparing Gareth to the character of Chris from “The Walking Dead” comics, but executive producer Scott Gimple won’t confirm that they are one and the same. “Gareth certainly isn’t Chris from the comics unless Chris was lying to us about his past, which he may have. Chris unloaded what happened in his past in some detail, but I can’t confirm or deny,” he tells THR. For what it’s worth, Gareth was originally said to be a combination of two characters from the comics.

Gimple and “Walking Dead” author Robert Kirkman say many of the mysteries about Terminus will be resolved in the Season 5 premiere. “The people of Terminus have a great many secrets that will be revealed. They’ve proven themselves to be fairly dangerous,” Kirkman says. “Whether or not they are actually cannibals remains to be seen. Seeing Gareth and Rick and the people of Terminus and our survivors go head to head is going to be interesting. There is a very deep, dark and storied history to Terminus and how these people came to be that will be revealed in Season 5.”

The Walking Dead” is expected to return to AMC in October 2014.
