Good News for Walking Dead Fans. There is plans for the show that will lead it all the way up to 11 or 12 seasons. That is if they are lucky enough to make it that far. And there will also be a companion series that will soon be released. In A PGA panel discussion that had the men that are behind such great series as "The Walking Dead," "True Detective," "Homeland," and "Hannibal" sharing their stories and giving advice to an eager audience. Producer David Alpert was asked about working with existing material . This was his reply.

Alpert was asked what it was like working from a pre-existing product.

"I happen to love working from source material, specifically because we have a pretty good idea of what season 10 is gonna be. We know where season 11 and 12...we have benchmarks and milestones for those seasons if we're lucky enough to get there."

If the ratings keep rolling in like they have been, it shouldn't be a problem.

With fan fanatics that drool overevery episode (even when they are eating BBQ slathered ribs) or anything that is WD and a rating of 20+ million an episode it probably would last . Especially on how each season has different story arcs that keep it from going stale. This would put The Walking Dead up there as a contender for the longest lasting Sci FI / Horror series along with Stargate, Doctor Who, and Star Trek.

Now to the tantalizing idea of a spin off. If you are a fan from the graphic novels and comic books you might not be so stoked about it. They are loyalist and love the plot just the way it is. If you are the fans from the TV show and just love anything about the show then you will be wetting your pants at the prospect of a new show.

Official Press Release

AMC announced today that the network is in the initial stages of developing a companion series to its original drama series The Walking Dead, which premiered on AMC in October of 2010. The Walking Dead is currently the #1 show on television among adults 18-49. Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert are on board as executive producers, with AMC Studios set to produce. The companion series has a target on-air date of 2015.

"Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer," said Charlie Collier, AMC's president and general manager. "We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It's a big world and we can't wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse."

"After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn't be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe," said Kirkman. "The opportunity to make a show that isn't tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing."

The rumor is that this series will be based on events in other parts of the US maybe the world . New York , LA , Washington etc.... Details are sketchy from what I cam across on what the plot is going to be about. Just that the show has a green light to be produce and will air in 2015 sometime. I will post updates as they come along on the their progress.

New Star Trek Series maybe heading to Netflix

10 Jun 2014

I caught wind of a rumor that was posted on Geek.com  that indicates that Star Trek for the small screen is not dead but maybe revived by Netflix in a brand new series. According to the article Netflix approached CBS for the rights to produce a new series of Star Trek. In what form it is not clear but from reports it would make sense since one of the most watch streaming series on Netflix and probably other streaming networks are shows from the Star Trek franchise.  As Spock would probably say "Very interesting indeed if it were to be true " . OK  all  Nerd, Geeks , Scifiologist. Get your Spock ears on and start chanting a prayer for this to come to light.  Yea I know a bit much on the corny side of a blog but you got to admit the thought of a small screen series of Trek gets the inner geek in all of us that are fans a bit giddy .

Dr Who Updates and Rumors

10 Jan 2012

 

So the speculations are building exactly what is going to be happening in the upcoming 7th Season of Dr Who. Sometimes saying 7 seasons sounds so wrong because the series is much much older then that but the powers to be started recounting after the resurrection of the series back in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston as the 9th Dr, so who am I to argue or complain. Anyway Dr Who TV who always has some really good inside stuff has some speculations of whats to come also some facts. For example they know there will be 14 episodes in all . That is 13 regular shows and 1 Christmas special. It is quoted by Moffat that there will be no 2 parters or highly unlikely. Rory and Amy will be in plenty of episodes and there will be with out a doubt an exit of them in what is said to be a heartbreaking way. It is also said that there are going to be some classic monsters returning to the series from the older series of the 60's and 70's. Which will be fun to speculate which ones they may be.  The airtime will be in Autumn of 2012 ( which really sucks because of the wait in-between) which should be the same on both sides of the Atlantic.

Now to the rumors. Some of the strongest rumors of to come out are the return of the Yetis and one of the classic monsters and the Master. There is wide hope that John Simm will reprise that role. Honestly I hope so to. After shedding the idea of the Ming version of the Master format he classic series the pseudo phsyco intellectual  reincarnation of the Master was brilliant in more ways then one.  Also strongly rumored is the return of Captain Jack (John Barrowman) It is said the Moffat wants him back so in my mind that is a better the 80% chance that he will return in the 7th series.

Moffat was also quoted in another of the Dr Who TV reports the first episode of series 7 (Episode 701) Will be more Die Hard like. Hmmmm are we going to see a action Dr Who.

" I want slutty titles and movie-poster plots. I want big pictures and straplines. The first episode I’m writing is called [Spoiler] of the [Spoilers]. And it’ll feel a bit like Die Hard, that first episode.

“Everyone is expecting us to do another year like 2011. You’re not going to get that at all. You’re going to get the biggest, maddest set of episodes ever.”

There is also one conflicting rumor on how many episode will actually run in 2012 or will it be split up so it will seem like its 2 seasons . My opinion is if they split it up then you will see some semi big budget made for TV movies for the 50th anniversary or something like that. I think back at the last season of the David Tennant era and come up with maybe they will do something similar to stretch things out a bit.

Well if you have any thoughts or like to interject your ideas of what is to come especially with the classic monsters go right ahead.  I tell you who I would love to see return are the Time Lords themselves. Not just one or two but the who kit and caboodle  lot of them. It would set up some interesting story arcs in my opinion.

Can this be the Legendary Godzilla

13 Oct 2011

This could be or maybe not what Godzilla may look like in the upcoming 2013 or maybe 2014 big screen , big budgeted American Godzilla film. According to Dread Central and infamous kid.com Legendary Pictures may have hired Hector A. Arce, a creature/fantasy sculptor for his work he had done on sculpturing Godzilla a long time ago. It is rumored that this or something really close to it maybe the look of Godzilla. None of this is confirmed it is in the strong rumor column from what I am reading. But truthfully if this is the way they are going it is way better then the Tri Star version . They could loose some of the spikes but at least it looks like Godzilla we all know and love. What do you think ?

 

There was also another article or rather the video in the article at Dread Central called An Open Letter to Legendary Pictures RE: Godzilla that caught my attention. Since I never saw this clip before I thought to myself is this a coming attraction to a reboot of the Japanese Godzilla. Alas not but it was super cool any way. It turns out it is some sort of dream or something like the sequence in a Japanese movie called ALWAYS- SUNSET ON THIRD STREET- 2 which was a surprise and a hit with the Japanese audience and rightfully so. It is a fantastically full CG'ed sequence. And I hope that those doing Legendary's version has watched that clip.

Dr Who’s Season Finale and News of 7th season delayed

25 Sep 2011

Well we know this is not the end of the series because there was a confirmed signing with Matt Smith of a season 7. Sadly it also has been confirmed that the season 7 will be delayed as it is reported at io9.com. According to the article "Wayne Clarke, confirmed via twitter that "Danny Cohen says there won't be a full series of Doctor Who in 2012, but a special run for the anniversary in 2013." Most likely this means that there will be some specials for 2012 or just a handful of episodes . But you can bet that in 2013 when the 50th anniversary celebration of Dr Who arrives there will be some great episodes and hopefully appearances by past Dr.s. Let me go out on a limb and think (more like pray) that maybe the past Dr's save the present Dr ????? That would be a good plot if they hold steady to River killing the Dr off. Yep I am fan and this is just a whimsical speculation of what may be in store.
As for the season finale it looks like (and any one who has ever watched the last two seasons should of guessed) that River Song is the Impossible Astronaut . One thing that I keep thinking of is that she is also the future 1 eyed patch lady. It sounds crazy but being a fan you try to figure out plot arcs and I think a wild one would be that she somehow either hates the Dr in the future enough to have her younger self turn against him or makes sure that a prophecy of some kind happens. Who knows maybe to get the Dr thinking about being peaceful again. Just a thought. Well here are two videos of the upcoming episodes one is the trailer and the other is a short prequel of the season finale.
Plot Synopsis at BBC Dr. Who
Episode 13: The Wedding of River Song
Written by Steven Moffat
The big finale! This one remains shrouded in mystery but Karen Gillan has promised us that the series will contain 'possibly the biggest twist so far'... Is it possible that this is the adventure that delivers it? Steven Moffat penned last year's incredible finale but it's probable that this adventure will conclude the series with a bigger bang than ever!
