From who’s set to join the anti-Negan battle royale to why we may be leading up to an endgame, your guide to Season 7’s back half
After a bleak and often brutal stretch of episodes last fall, The Walking Dead wrapped the first half of its seventh season back in December with a rousing reunion between Rick, Michonne, Daryl, and Maggie at the Hilltop Colony. Our heroes gave every indication that they were ready to stop cautiously cowering from Negan and to start taking the fight directly to the Saviors. Given that this show’s head writers Scott M. Gimple and Robert Kirkman never rush through any plot development, don’t expect the Alexandrians to storm the Sanctuary any time soon. This spring’s set of TWD episodes will undoubtedly be about the slow process of building coalitions between settlements, while still keeping the bad guys placated until the time to strike presents itself. Plus, y’know, there are still zombies all over the place. That’s what even master strategists refer to as “a complication.”
So as the drama is set to resume this Sunday night, here’s a reminder of where all The Walking Dead’s major characters are in the story, as well as what to look for going forward.
1. Rick appears to be out of his funk … but is he ready to be a leader again?
Let’s be honest: The only thing worse than Rick Grimes making dumb decisions that get a lot of people killed is him spending nearly eight full episodes pouting and doing nothing. In the midseason finale, Michonne finally got her boyfriend to see that there’s no real upside in continuing to be Negan’s slave, as he’s only going to keep demanding more and more; everyone’s life will be so miserable that survival won’t really be worth it. But just because Rick now agrees that they need a plan to defeat the Saviors doesn’t mean that he’s suddenly going to be in a hurry to put his people in mortal danger.
And don’t forget: Daryl just finished a dehumanizing stint as a prisoner at the Sanctuary, and our resident badass may need some time before he’s physically and mentally capable of taking up arms. So at the moment, it looks like the fired-up, more-than-capable Maggie and Michonne are best positioned to take command of this mission. The big question for the rest of season will be whether their former leader and his best hunter will fall into line behind them, or if they’re going to balk at their to-do list.
2. The Hilltop Colony and the Kingdom are about to get involved in the fight (and may soon be joined by others)
The best episodes of Season Seven so far have taken place away from Alexandria and the Sanctuary – specifically, the ones in the very different but fairly stable settlements of the Hilltop Colony, the Kingdom and Oceanside. Maggie seems to have become the de facto leader of the Hilltop, and much of that community appear ready to join her in a fight against the Saviors. But as we saw last fall, the Kingdom’s ruler Ezekiel is a strong but cautious man, who prefers to shelter his subjects from the reality of how they’re actually surviving. Meanwhile, the thriving all-female commune on the waterfront has gone out its way to shut themselves off from all potential alliances and entanglements. Our heroes will need every able body they can get if they’re going to win their freedom, but not every capable warrior will be easy to convince. (Carol, for example, is now living on her own and demanding to be left off the playing field entirely.)
Is there be anyone else they can call on? The series has just about burned through all the factions and neighborhoods that are in Kirkman’s comic books, though in the past, Gimple has shown a willingness to add characters and locations if that serves the TV version of The Walking Dead better. In interviews and promotions for the next eight episodes, the writers and actors have promised the world of the show will be getting larger. It wouldn’t be too surprising to meet some important new people by the end of March.
3. Something might be wrong with Carl
One of the more fertile themes in the show that’s been springing up over the past couple of years is that this new post-apocalyptic Earth’s children may not be “the future” (no matter what Whitney Houston once sang). Again and again, we encounter youngsters who’ve clearly gone off their nut, and have become remorseless killers with no firm understanding of the difference between good or bad – or even life or death.
Throughout the course of the series, Carl Grimes has had moments where he’s seemed fairly troubled, and overeager to pick up a gun to work through his issues. Toward the end of last year, he actually invaded the Sanctuary and picked off a few Saviors; but then after spending a day with Negan, Carl seemed more susceptible to his enemy’s philosophy of how to be strong, especially when contrasted with his currently spineless dad. The younger Grimes went in to the midseason break by his dad’s side at the Hilltop, but his mental state could be something to monitor in the weeks ahead.
4. Negan faces challenges from within and without
Some critics have complained that the season so far has featured far too much of that grinning sadist Negan, but in defense of Gimple and company, one beneficial effect of the recent focus on the show’s super-villain is that he’s been revealed as more vulnerable than he initially seemed. For one thing, he clearly has ego issues. The man wants to control everything, and needs everyone in his immediate vicinity to fear and obey him; and yet he also wants his servants to love him and to appreciate that he keeps them safe. Any resemblance between Negan and the current occupant of the Oval Office is … well, it definitely wasn’t intentional when the character was introduced, but the parallels may become more direct very soon.
Even disregarding his psychological damage, Negan could be in trouble because he’s alienated his own closest allies too much. He takes it as a point of pride that the former Savior fugitive Dwight is now his right-hand man, but he may be assuming too much when he insists that he’s “broken” his best soldier. His scarred lackey still plenty steamed, and with every new enemy that Negan tries to turn into a loyal employee – be it Daryl, Carl or now the bullet-manufacturing wizard Eugene – he sets up an opportunity for a full-blown rebellion.
5. It’s probably time for the show to start moving towards an endgame
From a business standpoint, The Walking Dead is still thriving, even as its ratings have slipped from historically astronomical to about on par with a typical 2010s TV hit. But 2016 – and much of 2015, too – didn’t exactly deliver peak Dead, creatively speaking. Last fall’s episodes were frequently repetitive and overlong, which was made all the tougher to be bear because they were also so often violent; longtime viewers felt punished by the show’s casual cruelty to the core cast. Kirkman’s comics are still a going concern, so there’s a lot of story left for the series to get to. Nevertheless, it wouldn’t be the worst idea for Gimple and AMC to take a cue from, say Lost or Game of Thrones, and start figuring out how much longer they want to go on with this. Not only might an announced end-date regenerate some fan excitement, but it might allow the most popular cable drama of all time to go out on top.
“Eeny, meeny, miny, more,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios of the hit show
Yes, “The Walking Dead” will be alive and kicking far into 2017.
A week before “TWD” fans began revving up for its highly anticipated Season 7 premiere, AMC announced that their No. 1 show has been picked up for its eighth season, which premiers in late-2017 and will kick off with the 100th episode of the franchise.
Word of renewal was released through a special on-screen message at the beginning of tonight’s two-hour retrospective special, “The Walking Dead: The Journey So Far.”
“Eeny, meeny, miny, more,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple and some of the hardest-working people in television to bring ‘The Walking Dead’ to the fans. And, most important, thanks to those fans for breathing life into this remarkable series right along with us.”
Although who dies a horrible death and who lives another day to dine on brains in the Season 7 opener is top secret, “TWD” star Norman Reedus, gave a hint of things to come while appearing on “The Tonight Show.”
“I imagine a lot of people will be kicking their television sets,” Reedus said. “I mean, it’s heavy. It’s really, really heavy.”
If one fan theory is to be believed, Reedus’ Daryl could be the one who gets killed by Negan and his trusty barbed-wire baseball bat, Lucille.
Season 7 of “The Walking Dead” premieres Sunday, Oct. 23, at 9 p.m., followed by an expanded 90-minute episode of “Talking Dead” live from the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, featuring Chris Hardwick, the cast members in Negan’s line-up and Lucille.
The tenth iteration of “Mean Tweets” is here — this time with Margot Robbie, Norman Reedus, Ryan Gosling and more reading scathing and hilarious tweets on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday night.
Hugh Grant kicked things off: “Watching Hugh Grant and his stutteringly pathetic ‘charm’ is about as appealing to me as closing my scrotum in a DVD case,” he read.
“Do y— … Are these real, or do you make them up to be especially nasty?” Grant asked with stutteringly pathetic charm.
Melissa McCarthy got to read, “Melissa McCarthy is the Madea of white people.”
“The Walking Dead” star Reedus took a bite out of an apple after reading an especially suggestive tweet.
Paul Rudd took some heat for being an everyman. His tweet read, “Paul Rudd is the most boring, vanilla dude. You know he just sits at home with his wife having a bland spaghetti dinner talking about his day.”
Zac Efron, Olivia Wilde and Russell Crowe were also among the stars who fell victim to the internet’s bitterness.
But perhaps no moment during the segment topped Bryan Cranston who read, “Bryan Cranston looks like Jim Carrey impersonating Matthew McConaughey,” which is followed up with a genius McConaughey impression that transformed into Carrey part way through.
We will have to wait until October to learn if Daryl Dixon survived The Walking Dead season finale cliffhanger, but at least we have a little news about the man who plays him on the hit series.
Norman Reedus will appear at the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey and participate in the festival’s Conversation series. In Conversation With Norman Reedus will take place May 7, at 2:30 p.m., at the Wellmont Theater and will be moderated by someone who is very familiar with the actor: Joel Stillerman, who is the President of Original Programming at AMC and Sundance TV.
This marks the fifth year of both the film festival and the accompanying Conversation series. Other people taking part in the series this year include Stephen Colbert, Rob Reiner, Richard Curtis, Patrick Wilson, and Margo Martindale. A press release for the event notes, “Reedus will discuss his work in depth, sharing the stories that have shaped his unique career.” Just don’t expect the actor to disclose whether Daryl Dixon lives or dies.
The Walking Dead: Norman Reedus says he ‘couldn’t speak’ after watching the season finale.
Andrew Lincoln was so distraught, it was the only time he’s ever shown up late for work. Lauren Cohan says she didn’t even want to go to work. Josh McDermitt threw his script across the room.
The cast of The Walking Dead has been very vocal with EW about how upsetting the season 6 finale (airing this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on AMC) was to both read and film, and now another voice has been added to that chorus. This time it’s from someone who not only appears in the finale, but has actually seen it as well. Or at least an early version of it.
“I saw a little rough cut of it,” Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl, tells EW. “And it’s the most hardcore episode we’ve ever shot. I couldn’t speak after I watched it. And, of course, I knew what was happening, and what was going to happen, and who was involved, but I got to tell you, I couldn’t speak for like an hour. And then I just was bombarded with phone calls on my drive home. But that was a rough, rough, rough cut. I will say that it might be the best episode we’ve ever shot of the show.”
“Hardcore” is also a good way to describe Negan, the super-villain from the comic book who will be making his long-awaited arrival. While Negan (and his barbed wire covered baseball bat Lucille) spells bad news for the characters on the show, those who do manage to survive are exited to work with the man playing him, Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
“I’ve known Jeffrey for a long, long time,” says Reedus. “He’s a friend of mine, and I really respect him as an actor. And as a dude, he’s just the best. It’s weird to have such a nice guy playing such an a–hole, you know what I mean? But that’s just the testament to how good he is. So I’m excited to see where he goes and what happens to that guy.”
The episode will also mark the second straight season finale to be helmed by Greg Nicotero, who has become the show’s go-to director for big episodes. “Talk about the inner circle, Greg’s one of those people who’s with you from the get-go,” says Reedus, “from the very start of everything you do to the very end of everything you do. He’s one of my best friends and I’ve watched that guy just blow the hell up. He’s an unstoppable force right now on the show.”
Now we’ll just have to see if anyone can stop Negan.
Norman Reedus Was Once Asked to Act ‘More Good-Looking … Like the Blond Guy on ‘Lost’’
They said what? Norman Reedus revealed in a new interview with Men’s Fitness that he was once told at an audition to — get this — act more “good-looking.”
“I remember in one of my earliest auditions, the casting director goes, ‘Can you do that a little more good-looking next time? Like the blond guy on Lost,” Reedus said in the March issue of the magazine. “And I was like, ‘What the f–k is that? I … looked up the guy and knew there was no f–king way I was going to get that job. There’s no way I could be that good-looking.”
The “blond guy” in question was Lost star Josh Holloway, who is known for his rugged features — and toothy smile.
Reedus, 47, has his own appeal, of course, but has always marched to the beat of his own drum, having fallen into acting by accident. He detailed to the publication the time he went out drinking with pals in the Hollywood Hills, which led to his stumbling entrance into Hollywood.
“I drank too much and started yelling at people,” he said. “Somebody in that crowd of people approached me about being an actor.”
Reedus will next reprise his role as gravelly voiced Daryl on AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead, which returns on Sunday, February 14.
Asked what fans can expect from his character’s story line, Reedus could only tease, “Chaos.”
“As far as Daryl is concerned, he is pissed off,” Reedus told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview. “He’s had his stuff taken from him. He put himself out there and trusted some people, and it did backfire on him, and I think he comes back super pissed off. … I mean, I know you know the bad guys that are coming. It’s been announced and well, displayed for everyone to see, but there’s definite surprises coming with all of that, and you know, it’s battle time.”
Norman Reedus talks about having ‘knees in the breeze’ on his new motorcycle series
Daryl Dixon lost his motorcycle on this past Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, but star Norman Reedus will still be spending plenty of time riding his bike on AMC.
The network announced last month that it had given the green light to six episodes of a new 2016 docuseries tentatively titled Ride With Norman Reedus that follows the Walking Dead star and companions riding in different cities and exploring motorcycle culture along the way. We spoke to Reedus recently to get some intel on where things stand with the show right now.
“We’re right now in the stages of mapping out where we’re going and who we’re going with,” says the star. “And we’ve got great locations and great rides that we’re planning on right now and with some guests in mind that will come on the show and we’ll go on a journey with them. And hopefully the viewers will feel like they’re on a journey with us.”
Reedus says the closest comparison for his program would be one currently airing on CNN about food. “It’s kind of like what Anthony Bourdain does right now with his show. The common denominator for him is food and when that show first came out it was about food. And then food stayed the common denominator, but it was about experiences and meeting people and hearing their stories. I love that show. I’m a huge fan of that show. And that’s kind of what we’re going for with this — the motorcycles will be the common denominator and riding will be the common denominator.”
Reedus says the first pilot episode has already been shot and has him excited for more. “We shot a pilot episode for it and it was so much fun and we learned so much on this pilot episode in meeting people and seeing these other people’s experiences and going to places with these people and them showing us their ropes. It was great, and now I’m going to be a man on his horse out there traveling the world. It’s going to be fun. I’m super excited.”
The star hopes that his new adventure will be a ride that both motorcycle aficionados and people with no experience will want to take. “I have a lot of friends that ride motorcycles and they’re so excited to watch stuff like that. And the same with a lot of friends of mine that are really into travel and they save their money to go places and see new things. Hopefully we’ll show both those things for people. I’ve got my knees in the breeze and I’m just looking for new stuff. It’s a blast.”
Norman Reedus to star in new AMC motorcycle series ‘Ride with Norman Reedus’ to follow ‘The Walking Dead’ star’s road adventures
Daryl Dixon has barely been off his motorcycle this season on The Walking Dead, and now the man who plays him — avid rider Norman Reedus — will also be spending a lot more time on the bike as the star of a new non-fiction series for AMC tentatively titled Ride With Norman Reedus.
Consisting of six one-hour episodes that will debut in 2016, Ride will follow Reedus and a different riding companion in a different city each week as they travel to a destination and explore motorcycle culture along the way. “I’m incredibly excited and thankful to AMC for giving me the opportunity to share a passion of mine with our fans, and hopefully a whole new audience,” said Reedus in a statement released by the network. “I had a lot of fun filming and exploring, and I hope it shows.”
AMC says that the show will “celebrate some of the best and brightest collectors, mechanics and motorcycle craftsmen around the country,” and the network is clearly excited about getting into the Norman Reedus business beyond just The Walking Dead. “We love being the home of people’s passion projects, and there is nobody more passionate about motorcycles than Norman Reedus,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC. “He is an avid rider and aficionado who is deeply immersed in motorcycle culture. There is also nobody more fun to hang out with. This show will bring those two elements together for a weekly ride into the incredible world of motorcycles and the people who live and breathe them.”
And that sound you hear is fans now freaking out that the announcement of the new series means Daryl is about to be killed off on The Walking Dead. (They shouldn’t fret: There is plenty of time during the show’s hiatus each year for Reedus to film the new show while still slaying walkers with his crossbow.)
Ride With Norman Reedus will be produced by Left/Right Productions, the company behind shows like This American Life, Small Town Security, and Odd Mom Out.
Norman Reedus of ‘Walking Dead’: ‘I stabbed my brother’ to a Willie Nelson song.
Beloved “Walking Dead” lone wolf turned pack protector Norman Reedus, aka Daryl Dixon, sat down with Hero Complex at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about his latest sci-fi movie project, “Air,” which was also produced by “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman. Reedus touched on his new sci-fi project, his ever-evolving Daryl playlist, and the creation of the famous Dixon poncho look, which he came up with himself.
The full interview is above, but we’ve pulled out a few highlights for your reading pleasure, specifically referencing the Daryl Dixon playlist Reedus creates for his character:
On the Daryl playlist:
Norman Reedus: This season is crazy, we’re on episode 7 out of 16 right now. I came to Comic-Con exhausted I’m going to leave here memorizing lines on the way out of here. We’re fully in it right now.
Do you have a line circling in your head right now that you can’t get out of your head?
Reedus: I don’t really memorize lines like that. I do scenes. I’m thinking of playlists right now, to play while I’m driving to work.
Reedus: I have a lot of Motorhead going through my head right now. This band called The Vines. There’s a song called “F the World,” which will probably make that list. I get ready to go do stuff.
You make a Daryl playlist for everyday?
No but I listen to a song. The episode “Still” with Emily Kinney I had a Dinosaur Jr. song going on and on in my head the whole time. I stabbed my brother to Willie Nelson. It’s just different. Different reasons for different songs.
On Daryl’s poncho:
Reedus: “[The Poncho] was my idea. I pitched it in season 2 and they were like ‘Come on give me a break.’ What I asked for was like a horse blanket from Herschel’s farm. And I was going to cut a hole in it and sleep in it. Back when I was in junior high I had the leather jacket that was my pillow and my blanket and my best friend. I sort of thought that. Plus with the crossbow, this move is real cool. And I’m a big Clint Eastwood fan. Let’s do this for Clint. And I gotta tell you, now there’s ponchos all over the place. Daryl ponchos are sold in little plastic bags. Action figures have ponchos, so it was a good idea, I think.”
Reedus: “The place that we’re at, the underground chamber that we’re at, it has air-locked doors. There’s only a certain amount of air. The thing is, we sleep in these chambers for up to six months. And we wake up and take care of the place. One of the things is, we start loosing our air right away. There’s no air here, there’s no air there, it becomes sort of a storyline … to to repopulate the Earth (when we get the call) that it’s OK to come back out…. [Djimon Hounsou and I] have the same job, but he sort of views his job as a scientist and I kind of view our jobs as janitors. Well-qualified janitors, and I feel like we’re being duped, and he’s constantly looking for hope. Through the course of the film there’s a cat-and-mouse psychological war going on between us…”
