Curious changes are afoot at The Walking Dead, especially as the show’s eighth season has seen some notably tempered ratings. Sunday’s midseason finale also averaged some of the show’s worst numbers since Season 2, and – given the hour’s big twist and some contractual holdups – we had to ask: Is The Walking Dead’s future in question?
The Walking Dead has seen its share of bitter exits, but rarely do the parents get involved. Such appears to be the case with Sunday’s game-changing character death, as the actor’s father tore into the network on social media, claiming “I never trusted Gimple or AMC.”
We’ve all rolled our eyes at one time or another as TV creators liken their work to “a 73-hour movie,” especially when it devalues the episode as a medium.
