Two New Recurring Characters Added to S6 of The Walking Dead

The-Walking-Dead-season-5-cast

According to E! News, two new characters have been added to Season 6 of The Walking Dead. The details are sparse, but according to the source, characters by the name of “Delvin” and “Tucker” will appear early on in the show.

“Delvin,” who is somewhat cynical and sarcastic, does not hold his tongue very often when it comes to dealing with people he deems to be unintelligent. He is not angry; he just thinks people are dumb.

Another character named “Tucker” is described as a hardworking tough guy who values fairness.

Both of these characters will be recurring. As far as we know, no actors have been cast.

At TWDEnthusiasts.com, we usually like to pair the character descriptions with whom we believe these characters represent in the comic book. However, since the descriptions are rather brief and ambiguous, we have not a clue! We are assuming that these will be additional members of the Alexandria Safe Zone, and not necessarily related to The Wolves.

As usual, one can only assume that “Delvin” and “Tucker” are code names, since AMC and The Walking Dead do not like to reveal any major character spoilers to come. It’s also possible that these are completely original characters to the television series, and do not overlap with the comics.

Based on your knowledge of the comics, does anyone in particular come to mind? Sound off with your speculations in the comments section below!

The Walking Dead Season 6 to Begin Filming May 4 in Senoia

the-walking-dead-camera-1024x682News regarding The Walking Dead has been a little quiet since the Season 5 finale in March. However, now that filming is set to start on May 4 for Season 6, fans should expect some decent rumors and spoilers to start surfacing. In a recent article published by Times-Herald.com, details surrounding filming locations for this year have released.

On Monday night, location manager Mike Riley appeared before the city council to present his filming plans for Season 6. Here are the important details of the meeting:

  • Filming will mostly happen within the walls of the Alexandria Safe Zone for Season 6; however, there will be instances where filming needs to take place outside the walls for particular episodes.
  • Depending on certain scenes, there will be a “need to provide safety for our cast and crew and for the general public.” However, Riley was unable to go into any detail about those scenes.
  • An episode is set to be filmed outside of the walls from May 15 to 28
  • Riley requested occasional closures of certain roads, and when prodded for answers he responded, “At some point …something will be happening… there will be action that is involved… it could be stuff that people need to stay away from. I can’t really go into a lot more detail… it will be known when we do it, why we did it.” The council approved this request.
  • Signs requesting homeowners to stop mowing their grass are starting to pop up around the filming locations.

As more filming details become available, we will be sure to update you with all the latest news about Season 6 of The Walking Dead. If you live around that area, feel free to send your pictures to thewalkingdeadenthusiasts@gmail.com and we will get them posted on the website.

Fear The Walking Dead Spinoff Will Not Reveal Zombie Virus Origin

fear-the-walking-dead-spinoff-gets-a-teaser-trailer-331141

Bad news, zombie fans. If you were hoping to learn more about “Patient Zero” on The Walking Dead spinoff, it is not going to happen. Although ‘Fear The Walking Dead‘ has been dubbed as a prequel of sorts, the show will reportedly not delve into the origins of the zombie virus. Similar to the mothership show, Robert Kirkman stated in a recent interview that he has no plans of diving into what exactly caused the zombie apocalypse.

During a NAB panel alongside AMC President Charlie Collier and actor Steven Yeun (Glenn), Kirkman said that he’s not interested in “fixing” or “learning the cause” of the outbreak, as he finds those story lines to be played out too often. Instead, this show will focus on the struggles of each individual character – sounds a bit like The Walking Dead.

So what exactly will make this show different from the original? Evidently, not much. Kirkman promised that the spinoff “pays homage” to the original while putting its own twist on things. He also teased, “It’s possible that the people that we’re following in the show are maybe a little bit more deadly in certain ways.” What exactly that means? Nobody knows. I’m not sure anyone can get more deadly than Rick Grimes, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

With all the recent details about the companion series emerging, are you looking forward to the spinoff or do you think it might just be more of the same? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.

The Walking Dead Spinoff Series Officially Gets a Name!

fear-the-walking-dead

As if we didn’t already know, The Walking Dead companion series, set to debut in late summer 2015, has officially received a name. The name of the series will be called ‘Fear The Walking Dead‘, which is an obvious spin on the mothership show’s name. Robert Kirkman made the official announcement via Twitter on March 27th.

The title has been floating around for a number of months after a portion of the script was leaked online but nothing was ever made official. The Walking Dead and AMC tried to play it off, and it was assumed to be a working title for the show, or the name for the pilot episode.

The title announcement comes only a few weeks after it was stated that the companion series was signed by AMC and received a two season order – the first season set to air in late summer 2015, and the second season to air in 2016.

Do you like the title ‘Fear The Walking Dead’, or would you have preferred something that differentiated the series from the mothership show? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below!

the-walking-dead-try-rick-episode-15

So many questions, so few answers. This week we take a break from our regularly scheduled program of getting shit faced drunk on the podcast and actually attempt to have somewhat of an insightful conversation. Although we classified this episode as mostly filler, it did open up a plethora of questions that we hope will be answered in next Sunday’s Season 5 finale.

On this episode of The Walking Dead Enthusiasts Podcast we discuss:

  • Season 5/Episode 15 entitled “Try”
  • This crazy fan theory about Morgan getting killed off by the wolves
  • Predictions for the season finale – who will die?
  • Will the Wolves be introduced in the season finale?
  • Can Enid be trusted yet?
  • How in the hell did Nicholas get the ‘J’ gun?!
  • Is Deanna the “true leader” of the Alexandria Safe Zone?
  • Rick’s freak out and subsequent beating over the head by Michonne
  • Zombie Kill of the Week
  • Episode Ratings & Pick of the Week

Dennis’ Pick of the Week: I have no idea what Dennis was talking about on this episode. So if you do, you should be able to find it pretty easily online.

Sebastian’s Pick of the Week: Photo recaps from Reddit user The Nard Dog – all of his photo recaps of each episodes can be found on Imgur.

Ryan’s Pick of the Week: iZombie, a new series on CW that’s essentially like CSI but…with zombies. Ryan actually watched one of the episodes and it was better than he expected.

Theory Suggests Morgan is Killed by The Wolves in S5 Finale

Put your tin foil hats on because we are about to take you on a trip to crazy town. As most of you already know, fans have been speculating the whereabouts of Morgan Jones since the last time we saw him in the midseason finale ‘Coda.’ Since then, we have not seen any of Morgan, nor do we have any inclination as to how he will reintegrate with the group. However, in the last episode of The Walking Dead (Episode 15 ‘Try’), Daryl and Aaron stumble upon the remains of a number of people who were dismembered by The Wolves. If you look closely, the camera pans to two arms and a pair of black sunglasses lying on the ground. While this went unnoticed by most, perceptive viewers on Reddit drew their own theories about the identity of the dead body. Continue reading
