AMC’s The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead made their presence known at San Diego Comic Con this year with their Deadquarters offsite, the large walker meetup that weekend, and much more. It is a great time to be a fan of the television series. On the Friday of San Diego Comic Con, AMC premiered the season 10 trailer to the entire world and after that, the panel started and Danai Gurira announced that the upcoming season will be her final one. This news hurts as much as Andrew Lincoln’s departure last year. After the Hall H panel for both shows, the press conferences happened!
The first one was the Fear The Walking Dead press conference as Scott Gimple, Austin Amelio, Lennie James, Alycia-Debnam-Carey, Danay Garcia, Maggie Grace, Karen David, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson, and Chief Content Officer Scott Gimple, and Executive Producers Andrew Chambliss, and Ian Goldberg. The biggest piece of news that came out of the conference is that Scott Gimple said it himself that the CRM helicopter group has nothing to do with The Commonwealth from the comic book series. The conference was great and I took photos after it ended.
The Walking Dead press conference took place right after Fear ended and cast members Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Danai Gurira, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBribe, Cailey Flemming, Cooper Andrews, Nadia Hilker, Ryan Hurst, Avi Nash, and Eleanor Matsuura along with Scott Gimple, and showrunner Angela Kang took the stage to answer every question that they could about the upcoming season and Danai, in particular, talk extensively about her leaving the show. Another great tibit from the press conference is that former or active military members were also walkers in the past on the show along with amputees as well. Norman Reedus has a very funny line around the twelve minute mark. You will love the conference as you can listen below.
Here are some of the pictures I have taken from the press conference as well.
I always love catching up with the cast every year I cover the press conference. Jeffrey Dean Morgan remembered my halloween costume from last year, Me and Norman talked about Death Stranding, and me and Danai talked about her final season for a bit.
