The Walking Dead Returns to Halloween Horror Nights

walking-dead-coming-to-hhnFans with a voracious appetite for AMC’s The Walking Dead will have a chance to walk in the footsteps of human survivors when Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort debut all new terrifying mazes inspired by Season 3 of the critically-acclaimed, award-winning television series at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights events beginning September 20th.

The eerily authentic and disturbingly real maze experiences will place Halloween Horror Nights guests at the heart of the show’s once impenetrable prison, the West Georgia Correctional Facility, now overrun by hordes of flesh-eating walkers.  The mazes at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando will send guests cowering through the walker-infested wilderness that surrounds the prison and into the seemingly utopian town of Woodbury where gruesome secrets are concealed.

Universal Orlando is also dedicating its entire Halloween Horror Nights street experience to “The Walking Dead” – making this the first time ever that all of the scare zones throughout the park will be themed after a hit television series.  Guests brave enough to walk the streets of Universal Studios Florida will encounter iconic scenes from all three seasons of the hit show – including the perilous city of Atlanta and Hershel’s dismal barn – and fleets of blood-thirsty walkers who are hungry for their next victim…

“What’s great about working with a property like ‘The Walking Dead’ is that each season presents new environments and characters for us to draw inspiration,” said John Murdy, Creative Director for Universal Studios Hollywood.  “With the prison as the main setting of Season 3, we seized this opportunity to recreate that very environment, down to the last detail, to be as genuine and authentic to the show as possible. Using movie-quality production value, our goal is to make guests feel as if they are mired in the world of blood-thirsty zombies, which is something you can only do at ‘Halloween Horror Nights’”

“The goal is always to surround guests with authentic and terrifying experiences,” said Michael Aiello, Creative Development Director for Universal Orlando’s Entertainment team. “The combination of ‘The Walking Dead’ themed street experiences and the haunted maze will make it difficult for our guests to escape the hordes of ravenous walkers they’ve seen on their television.  The moment you pass through our gate, you become a survivor fighting for your life.”

Entertainment Weekly InsideTV Podcast: Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, David Morrissey

Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM channel 105) made the trek to Comic-Con last week where we spoke to all the biggest casts — in terms of both sheer numbers of cast members and popularity — in television. In fact, some casts — Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, True Blood — were so big we had to split them into two groups. Now, we can bring you some of those interviews right here on the InsideTV Podcast and you can hear them by clicking on the audio player below at the bottom of the post.

How AMC Prepared The Cast For Comic Con

via CNN:

Before heading to Comic-Con in San Diego last weekend, the cast members of “The Walking Dead” were each given a folder with talking points about the upcoming fourth season.

The folders contained information on what the actors could and couldn’t say about the new episodes, which premieres October 13 on AMC. Although none of the actors could reveal the contents of the folders, it was clear that there are lots of secrets to be kept about where “The Walking Dead” will be headed when it returns.

‘The Walking Dead’: Chandler Riggs on what’s in store for Carl in season 4

Season 3 of The Walking Dead was a bit of a rough road for Carl Grimes, what with him having to watch his mother die and then put a bullet in her brain so she did not come back as a zombie. Oh, and then he had to sit there while his dad went off the proverbial deep end. Will things be any better when AMC’s zombie drama picks up again for season 4 on Oct. 13? And where does the relationship between Papa Grimes and son stand?

“When Lori died the group was a lot smaller,” says Chandler Riggs (who plays Carl) in the video interview below, which was taken during Riggs’ Entertainment Weekly cover shoot (you can buy all three collector covers right here!). “So at the end of the season about 50 people [from Woodbury] got off that bus. And so now that there’s 50 more people in the group, Rick and Carl might have some more time to get closer together. Or not.” Way to be cagey!
