SPECIAL REPORT:  The Power and Pitfalls of Live TV

New York, NY – Superstar zombie slayers Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus from AMC’s blockbuster The Walking Dead are TV Guide Magazine’s new cover stars.  The double issue hits stands this week.

The Walking Dead returns from its midseason finale on Valentine’s Day, set to paint the countryside red. November’s closer left fans hanging by leaving Rick (Lincoln) and his group overrun by zombies, and Daryl (Reedus) assaulted by a trio of thugs. The second half of season six begins with a bloody battle, which finds the cast fighting the most intense zombie invasion yet. Our own honorary walker stalker (and senior writer) Rob Moynihan traveled to the Georgia set for a glimpse of what’s to come. He learned a few things:

Lincoln: “This is the biggest episode we’ve ever done in terms of the amount that happens. This is the greatest jeopardy they’ve all faced, and it’s going to take a lot to save the community.”  

Executive producer and creator Robert Kirkman: “This is a huge turning point for Rick and the group, because there’s a lot of chaos and it’s very brutal.”

Reedus: “For Daryl, he feels like he just let Rick down, and he’s also pretty pissed at this point.”

The second half of Season 6 also marks the beginning of a new chapter for the series, with the introduction of the notorious comic book villain Negan.  For more inside scoop, click HERE  to read the full cover story and view exclusive photos and interview footage.
