Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as “the greatest thriller ever produced for television,” “The Walking Dead” has become a juggernaut on social media. The series currently has close to 15 million likes on Facebook and last night “The Walking Dead” was a top trend on Twitter for the night of the mid-season premiere. Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, the Emmy Award-winning series tells the story of the months and years that follow the zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home.
Here are my thoughs on tonights episode.
Tomorrow issue #105 is released and after reading it all I can say is that Negan is one bad dude! He and The Governor would probably like each other. But don’t take my word for it, get the issue tomorrow when it’s released. Until then, check out this preview of issue #105.
Soundtrack for The Walking Dead is coming…
We’ll get to hear early next year when the soundtrack album for “The Walking Dead” rises. And no – this won’t be one of those deadly dull collections with just the themes from the hit AMC show (like the one released in 2011). It will be something fans can really sink their teeth into.
Two singles from the soundtrack have already been released. The traditional folk dirge “The Parting Glass,” sung by Beth and Maggie Green, the half-sister farmer’s daughters portrayed by Emily Kinney and Lauren Cohan, aired on this season’s premiere in October. Then on Nov. 11’s “Say the Word” episode, Louisiana rock duo Baby Bee’s “Love Bug” was featured, with the cool in-joke lyric: “I need to get bitten.”
The rest of the tracks are being treated like that secret Jenner whispered to Rick at the CDC in season 1, but we are pretty sure The Zombies’ “She’s Not There” won’t be on the Republic Records’ soundtrack. No, she’s not there because she was eaten. Duh.
411′s Al Norton sits down for an exclusive interview with Lauren Cohan, star of AMC’s record breaking hit series The Walking Dead. Check it out here.
New character confirmed for TV show:
The Wire alum Chad Coleman has been tapped to play fan-favorite character Tyreese in the zombie drama based on the comics created by Robert Kirkman, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The character is rumored to make his debut in The Walking Dead’s Dec. 2 midseason finale, potentially setting up another major reveal the way the series first introduced Michonne during the second-season finale.
