The season premiere of “The Walking Dead” is going to be airing on AMC on Sunday, and with that of course comes one other great thing: The premiere of the new “Talking Dead” season! There will once again be guests, discussion, and so much more crazy stuff that takes place over the course of the hour.
First things first, let’s be quick to remind you of a timeslot change! Thanks to the season premiere running for 90 minutes, you are going to have to wait until 10:30 p.m. Eastern time to check out the aftershow. For this particular episode, we’ve got a “mystery guest” appearing … which never makes us feel particularly great. Why? It’s really a case here of us consistently worrying about whether or not someone is about to die, and this is a way of sending them off. The only other possible scenario here is that the actor / actress in question strictly just had an important episode, and it would be revealing a big spoiler to make it clear that they have this sort of storyline going in.
Aside from the guest, you can also see showrunner Scott M. Gimple and executive producer / effects guru Greg Nicotero on the panel.
We know that with this particular installment, the show is going to be focusing once again not only on the town of Alexandria, but whether or not Rick Grimes and his crew of survivors are going to be able to prepare the town better for some of what potentially awaits them. So far, they’ve been averse to change, and to the dangers of the outside world.
