Okay, since they are doing the Whisperers, they have to do the "boundary line".....I would think in the season finale.

So who's it gonna be, same as the comics, or a different bunch?

No joke! I was expecting little lover boy because obviously but the rest....... daaaaaaamn.

I also gotta say that the scene with the two speaking sign language was an amazing scene. So much emotion with nothing said.

AMC Plans Third ‘Walking Dead’ Series


AMC will serve up another helping of “Walking Dead,” launching a third series that tells the story of survivors in a world where a plague turns most of the civilized world into flesh-eating zombies.

“This allows us to come to the marketplace with completely uninterrupted ‘Walking Dead’ universe content from post-Super Bowl Sunday to Thanksgiving,” says Scott Collins, president of ad sales for AMC Networks, in an interview.

There’s good reason to keep the franchise going. “The Walking Dead” continues to be one of the most expensive programs for advertisers, according to Variety’s annual survey of primetime ad prices. A package of ads in “Dead” had an average cost of around $415,000 this season, according to media buyers. On TV, only NFL football broadcasts cost more. “Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead” attract some of the nation’s most prominent advertisers, according to ad-spending tracker Kantar, including Apple. American Express, T-Mobile and Microsoft.

A third series might help bring new ad money to the franchise as it matures. “Walking Dead” and “Fear The Walking Dead” captured $240.2 million in ad revenue in 2018, according to Kantar Media.. But that figure is down about 8.4% from the $262.1 million the two series captured in advertising in 2017.

The new series will be co-created by Gimple, and Matt Negrete, who has been a writer and producer on “The Walking Dead” for the past five seasons and who will serve as showrunner. Produced by AMC Studios, the series will begin production on 10 episodes this summer in Virginia.

Is irony advertising your products on a TV show set in future world where your products are no longer needed? :wink:

With so much talent, creativity, and experience among almost anyone else... why why why why why why are they letting Gimple touch the new spin off... it's like the definition of insanity (doing the same thing and expecting a different result).

I really used to like the Walking Dead, but Gimple has little else to his resume and there is a direct correlation to his power and the shitiness of the show.

The boundary line really woke me up. I just recently got all caught up from the last 2 seasons and I'm glad I'm saving the literature for after the series is concluded. The books are always better. Loved the elevator long drop sudden stop. However Alpha's right hand man would not be upright without being undead himself. Overall this last season was ok fun.

I feel a little better having watched this. I'm getting tired of the "fantasy" parts of this series. When it started it was a serious dramatic series. Now it's turned into some kind of fantasy world where a king owns a full grown tiger. WTF? And it's CGI for christsake! But come on. Stop with all the fantasy bullshit that isn't real. I want the series to go back where it started. A real PAW with real issues to be faced. Not some fantasy cult that has to be dismantled. That has figured out some way of avoiding and training walkers with the help of a deadmans mask. If that were possible why isn't everyone simply doing it?!

Maybe I don't feel better. lol. Still gonna watch though.

I tried, I really did. 'There's a clandestine group of guerilla fighters lurking in the woods. They are notoriously difficult to track and they want to wipe us all out, down to the last the last child. Why don't a bunch of us go out on horseback and ride, literally rough shod, through open ground looking for signs of their whereabouts" I got about 15 minutes into the episode before I wanted to eat dryer lint instead. If you try really hard to watch it the same way you would watch Sharknado 8, it's almost palatable, almost. Sharknado at least knows what it is and isn't pretending to be something different.

Oh yeah, and make sure your 6 man horse recon team splits up into 3 groups, galloping full speed into the country side. [That was a looks good drone shot but puleeez, splitting up and making unreasonable decisions is now such a joke its in a Geico commercial.] And then split off from your two man recon team to go kill some random walkers to further increase the risks.

The producers are using 'unreasonable actions' as a plot gimmics to induce an emotional response instead of professional film making techniques.

Wasn't going to say anything. Didn't watch it. Don't intend to. Show was in downward spiral long before Glen jumped the shark. In real life people who make that many bad choices , are nominated for the Darwin award. Barney the dinosaur is more believable and life like
As of now I bet you got me wrong

And at the end, why didn't Carol just back away from the ledge so Alpha doesn't see her, since she had more then enough time to step back before Alpha looked up, or better yet drill Alpha with a few arrows and be done with it.

Oh yeah, since when do walkers die from getting their throat sliced?? .. and whats with all that blood spurting out 3 feet???

Carol's being an instigator i guess.

That throat cutting thing is how you put out your friend when they are on fire and you don't have an extinguisher. Seriously though, the blood was red[ish] so I wondered if it was a whisperer.
