Merle Dixon, 'The Walking Dead'The return of 'The Walking Dead' is just days away and ahead of the Season 2 premiere we hear a rumor that scary redneck Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) may also be returning.

Norman Reedus, who plays Merle's almost equally scary younger brother Daryl, told TV Guide that an upcoming episode (airing Nov. 13) will revolve around his character.

"It's pretty much all Daryl on his own, in a hard-core man-versus-world psychological [quest] with inner turmoil and hints of 'Deliverance.'"

The second season of 'The Walking Dead' is full of kittens, puppies and rainbows.

Wait, scratch that -- nobody wants that version of the zombie show when it returns Oct. 16, right? I think we can all agree on that.

If it's staggering zombies and memorable scares you want, allow us to share with you this exclusive trailer from the show's second season, in which things get even worse for the hardy survivors of the zombie apocalypse.

Season 1 was all about setting up the world in which Rick Grimes and his fellow survivors were operating, but in the second season, things take an ever darker turn.

'The Walking Dead' Live Talk Show is a Go!

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 23rd 2011 6:20AM
'The Walking Dead'AMC has announced that it's launching 'Talking Dead,' a live talk show that will air after new episodes of 'The Walking Dead.'

We know, at first the concept seems a little weird. What to expect from a zombie apocalypse spin-off show? 'Watch What Happens Live With the Undead?' Victim of the week? Tips on getting the most out of a human-only diet? How to nail that head shot?

Joel Stillerman, AMC's SVP original programming, production and digital content said that 'Talking Dead' will be "a kind of live water cooler" for 'Walking Dead' fans. "[They] are incredibly engaged with every aspect of the show," he added.

"They tweet, blog, and post comments in very large numbers, and we wanted to give them an opportunity to interact with the show in a way that they don't currently have."

'Talking Dead' will be hosted by 'Walking Dead' über-fan Chris Hardwick, who said "I pretty much begged for this job."

'The Walking Dead' Season 2 Preview: More Action, More Emotion & More Zombies!

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 8th 2011 7:45PM
I was lucky enough to screen the premiere episode of 'The Walking Dead' Season 2 today, and the first words out of my mouth when it ended pretty much say it all: holy sh*t.

Now I was one of the ones on the fence about this show after its way too short first season, and I know a lot of fans are worried about the series being in new hands since Frank Darabont passed the showrunning torch off to Glen Mazzara.



But after seeing the 90-minute premiere (Sun., Oct. 16, 9PM ET on AMC), I can safely say that we can all stop worrying. This is non-stop, edge-of-your-seat, pulse-pounding zombie action and suspense at its best. Now they just have to keep that up for the second season's full 13-episode order ... no biggie.

I caught up with Mazzara and fellow executive producers Gayle Anne Hurd, Robert Kirkman and Dave Alpert to find out more about Season 2's drama, the introduction of new characters Herschel and Maggie, Andrea's eventual evolution and giving back to the fans. Keep reading for more ...

Frank Darabont Quits as 'The Walking Dead' Showrunner

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 27th 2011 5:00AM
'The Walking Dead' Season 2 previewNow here's something totally out of leftfield. Frank Darabont has stepped down as showrunner of 'The Walking Dead.'

Deadline.com reports sources as saying that Darabont, a feature film helmer and multi-Oscar nominee before moving to the small screen, was unaccustomed to the fast pace of TV production, and "never quite adjusted to the daily grind of producing a TV series."

Production recently got underway on Season 2, which is due to premiere on AMC in October. There's been no word yet on whether Darabont, who is also an exec producer on 'The Walking Dead,' will remain on the series in some capacity.

So, why has Darabont quit? Was it because he couldn't take the pace? Or was it because of rumored budget cuts?
