There have been a lot of casualties on The Walking Dead. One of the earliest and most tragic fatalities was the surprising end met by Dale Horvath, everyone's favourite fisherman hat-wearing grandpa figure. His death came as a shock for fans, but get ready for another shock - the actor himself was the one who pulled the plug on his tenure on the AMC series.
The Walking Dead has been a big money-making success at AMC, pulling in an impressive number of viewers for the network. But Skybound -- the entertainment company founded by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman -- just announced that Amazon will be the home of all their new TV content moving forward.
Zombie stories almost always have the same end game: Either humanity finds a cure, or everyone dies. In today's Walking Dead panel at San Diego Comic-Con, franchise creator Robert Kirkman said definitely his show will never, ever, look for a solution to the undead apocalypse. (Looks like everyone dying is still on the table, though.)
Robert Kirkman is apparently discounting the possibility that ratings fall and AMC cancels The Walking Dead. Or, the expense eventually makes the show not worth it, and AMC cancels it.

After "categorically denying" that he was working on a remake of An American Werewolf in London back in August, it looks like Max Landis (son of the original film's writer-director, John Landis) has revised his position. Deadline just reported that the film is officially a go, and the younger Landis will write it.
The Walking Dead's season six finale aired a full month ago, but its cliffhanger ending -- who did Negan pick as his victim? -- proved so controversial that fans are still fuming about it. Now, TWD comic writer and creator Robert Kirkman has addressed the issue, although it still might not assuage those fans who felt cheated by the finale.
