New mazes will be inspired by the show’s fourth season and send guests fleeing from the the West Georgia Correctional Facility, now overrun by savage walkers.
“This has been an incredible collaboration and I am thrilled to be working once again with the creative teams at Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood to bring the world of ‘The Walking Dead’ to our dedicated fans,” said Greg Nicotero, executive producer and special effect makeup supervisor for the series. “I can’t wait for visitors to experience first-hand some of the iconic moments from Season 4 in what will be the biggest, most exciting and frightening ‘Walking Dead’ maze to date.”
AMC has released a first-look photo for the upcoming fifth season of its immensely popular zombie apocalypse drama, “The Walking Dead.” The new photo features Andrew Lincoln as show lead, Rick Grimes.
The Wire alum Seth Gilliam has joined Walking Dead as a new series regular for Season 5. He will play a character listed on the breakdown as Michael Todd, though his real name is being kept under wraps. (Maybe fans could recognize a character from the graphic novel in the description – Father Gabriel?) Michael is described as having two sides, displaying a friendly, puckish humor but also having a haunted side stemming from a dark secret.
Fox-owned syndication channel MyNetworkTV has picked up the exclusive broadcast rights to re-air the zombie drama. Starting this fall, MyNet will run two episodes a week, edited for broadcast standards, from seasons of the show that have previously aired on AMC.
MyNet confirms The Walking Dead on MyNet will be edited to meet broadcast content standards and will carry a TV-14 rating.
The Walking Dead launched on AMC with a TV-14 rating in 2010 and grew to become TV’s top-rated drama among adults 18-49. But after protest from parents group the Parents Television Council claiming that rating was far too lenient for the show’s graphic content, AMC switched TWD rating last year to the stricter TV-MA.

AMC has released its second trailer for the midseason return of The Walking Dead (the first is here). It’s not very long (3o seconds), but it is action packed. The show returns Feb. 9. “We’ll never get things back to the way things used to be,” promises Rick.
The prison’s been destroyed and the survivors have broken apart on separate paths, each with their own unique set of dangers and enemies. Though things might look grim, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) hasn’t given up all hope yet. “It’s not going to be easy, but we’re not too far gone,” he says.
The Walking Dead: Season Two – A Telltale Games Series will continue the story of Clementine, a young girl orphaned at the outset of the undead apocalypse, now left to her own devices to seek safety and survive in a world gone mad.
