Could The Walking Dead: World Beyond Jadis Casting Set Up the Rick Grimes Movies?

Anne a.k.a. Jadis (Polly McIntosh) has come a long way on The Walking Dead. First introduced as a quite literal garbage person in The Walking Dead season 7, Jadis received the honor of being the character that brought Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) to safety so that he could live another day…and get his own spinoff movie franchise. Now the character is on to big things once again. AMC announced today that actress Polly McIntosh will return to the franchise and reprise her role as Jadis in The Walking Dead: World Beyond season 2. They also released a new trailer with…

Star Trek: Prodigy’s Franchise Connections Will Go Beyond Voyager

If Picard is the continuation of the story begun in Star Trek: The Next Generation, then Prodigy is shaping up to be the narrative successor to Star Trek: Voyager. We’ve known for a while that the animated series, created in partnership with Nickelodeon, would bring back Kate Mulgrew as a holographic version of her Captain Janeway character, but subsequent updates—such as the reveal that the series would take place in the Delta quadrant, or that Voyager cast member Robert Beltran would also be appearing on the show—hint at deeper connections between the two Star Trek series. Today, Paramount released the…

Mark Wahlberg Movie Infinite Signals That Paramount Plus Will Evolve Beyond Star Trek

Paramount+, once known as CBS All Access, has mainly defined itself with an overwhelming wave of Star Trek television content. However, surrounded by high-end competition from Disney+, HBO Max, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, the rebranded streamer is looking to live long and prosper beyond the space-faring franchise, having announced grandiose plans to expand its movie content. Most notably, sci-fi film Infinite, directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Mark Wahlberg, will be the service’s first theater-skipping feature offering; a surefire sign of things to come. Obviously, the boat of box-office-bypassing movies already left its proverbial dock some time ago; a…

Invincible: Robert Kirkman Discusses Season 2 and Beyond

Anyone who has experienced 10, soon to be 11, seasons of The Walking Dead can tell you that comic writer Robert Kirkman enjoys a lengthy story. Kirkman’s zombie comic series from which the AMC adaptation takes its inspiration ran from 2003 through 2019 and featured a staggering 193 issues. What’s even more impressive, however, is that The Walking Dead wasn’t the only expansive serialized story Kirkman was telling at the same time. Alongside illustrators Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, the prolific author produced 144 issues of Image Comics landmark superhero imprint Invincible from 2003 through 2018. Now that Invincible has…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Season Finale Ending Explained

This The Walking Dead: World Beyond feature contains spoilers. With The Walking Dead: World Beyond only getting a two season run, there’s a certain expected economy of storytelling. There’s not an opportunity to drag anything out past a few episodes, so big reveals tend to come faster and character arcs tend to bend more quickly than they might on other programs with more hours to fill and more opportunity for long-form stories. As such, there’s a lot of stuff that changed during the two-episode finale event to drill down into. Here is what happens in the conclusion of The Walking…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Season Finale Review

This The Walking Dead: World Beyond review contains spoilers. The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episodes 9 and 10 Huck (Annet Mahendru) is a woman with a mission, and it’s not to make sure everyone gets to the Civic Republic Militia research facility safely. From the very opening of The Walking Dead: World Beyond‘s ninth episode, “The Deepest Cut,” as Huck stares into the darkness while everyone sleeps, it’s clear she’s facing a choice between the people that she has come to know and love as friends in Felix and the kids, and her loyalty to the CRM, her mother, and…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 8 Review – The Sky Is a Graveyard

This The Walking Dead: World Beyond review contains spoilers. The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 8 The implications of Silas killing his father have followed the character around during his journey on The Walking Dead: World Beyond. Throughout his arc in the first season, that hint of violence, potential or actualized, has been the thing Hal Cumpston has projected most strongly. Not threatening, per se—Silas has never looked like a direct threat to anyone, shrinking back rather than using his size to menace—but fear. Silas is afraid of himself in a way the other characters are not, and that hints…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 7 Review – Truth Or Dare

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 7 This The Walking Dead: World Beyond review contains spoilers. It didn’t take long for Silas to reach critical mass. The moment another competitor for Iris’s attention came along, the danger meter slowly began to creep higher with every passing moment. The Walking Dead: World Beyond hit that point with a hammer. Iris and Percy laughing in the foreground, Silas starting daggers at them in the background. The two making plans to meet up after dark for what sounds like a make-out session? Silas lumbering in the distance, head down and ears open. Silas…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 6 Review – Shadow Puppets

This The Walking Dead: World Beyond review contains spoilers. The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 6 Perhaps I’m just projecting the character of Abraham onto the actor, but as a director, Michael Cudlitz seems to be able to have fun with his material, no matter how dark. Throughout “Shadow Puppets,” there are a lot of fun little touches and moments to lighten things up and serve as an effective tension break during some of the more nervous moments. Towards the end of the episode, as Iris is skulking into an abandoned department store, there are two back-to-back scares, one a…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 5 Review – Madman Across the Water

This The Walking Dead: World Beyond review contains spoilers. The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 5 When the Endlings left Campus Colony, they were four kids who didn’t really know each other. Even Hope and Iris, the two sisters, had secrets from one another. Silas kept the secret of why he ended up at Campus. And Elton, the quirky little fellow in the corduroy suit, had secrets of his own. On a show littered with traumatic stories, perhaps none is quite as traumatic as Elton’s, and The Walking Dead: World Beyond puts that trauma, as well as his mother’s manuscript,…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 4 Post-Credits Scene Explained

This The Walking Dead: World Beyond feature contains spoilers. To understand what happens after the credits roll on The Walking Dead: World Beyond episode 4, one needs to look a little further back in The Walking Dead history. The final sequence of Rick Grimes’ last Walking Dead episode “What Comes After” features an anguished Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) on a walkie-talkie, communicating with a mysterious helicopter. “I have a B,” she announces. “Not an A, I never had an A.” The “B” she has is a delirious, impaled Rick Grimes, making his final appearance on The Walking Dead as a lead…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 4 Review – The Wrong End of a Telescope

This The Walking Dead: World Beyond review contains spoilers. The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 4 A lot of people are critical of The Walking Dead: World Beyond for what the show is. It’s a teen-centric supernatural drama set in a zombie universe, like MTV’s Teen Wolf but not sexy due to the unspoken body odor surrounding every character. That’s not to everyone’s taste, which is understandable. The Walking Dead isn’t to everyone’s tastes, either. As such, a Walking Dead fan’s tolerance or interest in World Beyond is based heavily on just how much they enjoy watching melodramas meant for…

Reading beyond the veil: Paranormal book Recommendations From the Pros

Don’t cross the streams. Never take your hands off a Ouija board without first saying “Goodbye.” The undead has to be invited in. Kill it with fire. Shoot it in the head. Wolfman’s got nards. When it comes to the entertainment of the unexplained, or paranormal pop culture, humans live in a world(s) populated by all manner of preternatural, supernatural, otherworldly, and extradimensional phenomena. But entertainment also tells us there are rules that bring order to the abnormal – whether it’s a ghost or demon, alien or sasquatch, werewolf or vampire, or even a troll or fairy. Yet behind every…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 3 Review – The Tyger and the Lamb

This THE WALKING DEAD: WORLD BEYOND review contains spoilers. The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 3 The Campus Colony in The Walking Dead: World Beyond is less like a hard-scrabble camp and more like a small town protected by stone walls. There might have been thousands of people who lived and worked behind those walls, but that clearly wasn’t enough to allow someone like Silas to join the community without making a few waves. In a small town, nothing moves as fast as the rumor mill, and when the hulking new arrival comes from Omaha with whispers of violence in…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 2 Review – The Blaze of Gory

This The Walking Dead: World Beyond review contains spoilers. The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 2 The teens of The Walking Dead: World Beyond have been given all the tools necessary to survive in the world around them. They’ve grown up with weapons training, martial arts drills, and walker-killing lessons from people who know exactly what they’re doing and how to do it. With a teacher like Felix (Nico Tortorella), who has been killing empties and in charge of campus security for quite some time, it’d be hard not to pick up the tricks necessary. Iris (Aliyah Royale), the class…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Civic Republic and Three Rings Explained

The following contains spoilers for The Walking Dead: World Beyond episode 1. Way back in the tenth episode of The Walking Dead’s sixth season, Paul Rovia a.k.a. Jesus (Tom Payne) made a promise to Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).  “You’re world’s about to get a whole lot bigger,” the Messianic-appearing figure said. And it did not take long for Jesus’s promise to bear fruit. Rick Grimes’s world did get bigger with the introduction of the Hilltop Colony, The Kingdom, Oceanside, and even The Sanctuary.  Since that moment, the world of The Walking Dead has only continued to grow. That growth reaches…

The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 1 Review – Brave

This The Walking Dead: World Beyond review contains spoilers. The Walking Dead: World Beyond Episode 1 Growing up is never easy, but growing up in a world where safety is clustering behind walls with a few hundred other people and visiting the next town over might involve a helicopter trip or a dangerous days-long trek through walker-infested wilderness is something else entirely. It’s been a decade since the Night the Sky Fell on The Walking Dead: World Beyond, and since then, Iris (Aliyah Royale) and her sister Hope (Alexa Mansour) have grown up in the relative safety and normalcy of…

How The Walking Dead: World Beyond Expands the Zombie Universe with Its Unique Teen Characters

After its premiere was delayed by several months due to COVID-19, the two-season The Walking Dead spinoff series The Walking Dead: World Beyond finally makes its debut this week. The story expands the TWD universe in a unique way, taking place 10 years after the zombie outbreak and focusing on a predominantly teenage cast of characters.
