It's probably a good idea to learn how to type proper sentences.

So Fear just got renewed for a fourth season. New showrunners.

"Additionally, Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg have boarded the series as co-showrunners — replacing Dave Erickson. Flagship showrunner Scott M . Gimple has also boarded the prequel spinoff as an executive producer."

Gimple putting his name on it now is... interesting.

I hope Gimple doesn't have too much input on FTWD. From what I can tell his instincts on how to run a show are pretty poor.

FTWD Season 3 premieres in June and AMC has already greenlit a fourth season. Wow! They must be really optimistic about this season. Even though the ratings have dropped considerably since the Pilot.

Though I think FTWD needs improvement (as much as I enjoyed Season 2 over Season 1) I'm not sure if Gimple's involvement is a good thing b/c he's been losing his touch these past two seasons of TWD, imo. This could also be a sign of a crossover between both shows, which I hope doesn't happen either.

So apparently Simon, Enid and Jadis have all been upped to series regulars.

Well, that's just great. If there's one thing that stuck out to me as particularly awful about this past sh**ty season, it was the f***ing trash people. SO GOOD NEWS FOLKS, WE GET TO SEE A WHOLE LOT MORE OF THEM.

I feel like Gimple is trying to lose viewers at this point.

We only see Jesus and Gregory in a few episodes, and they're considered regulars.

Not just them. The format of this whole season pretty much ensured that none of the cast appeared in more than, like, half the episodes.

That's just what Season 8 needs... more Enid and Jadis (and her tribe).

AMC's got to stretch out the season with pointless characters, subplot, and melodrama.

Funny that you're taking issue with the two females being upgraded and not the male.

I'm taking issue that both Enid and Jadis are shallow characters that I couldn't care less about. I still haven't warmed up to Enid. And feel she still doesn't bring much to the show for me to care for her. I never liked Jadis and her tribe. The Garbage group as a whole are very one dimensional and pointless, imo. Out of the five colonies/communities they're least interesting. As disappointing and anticlimactic the Wolves arc turned out being. They at least had a lot more going for them than the Garbage group did. Aside from the lame revelation/twist in season 7 finale, which everybody should've seen coming, they offer nothing to the story. They're just there to stretch out the season with unnecessary drama, which is diminishing the main plot. The sooner they rid the show of Jadis and co. the better.

I don't mind Simon. Even though he's a scumbag, who deserves his comeuppance. At least he's charismatic and doesn't bore me whenever he shows up.

Simon is just another obnoxious, annoying prick. He can die along with all of the other saviors, including Negan and his jello spine. Every time any of them shows up, it just makes me miss the Governor. David Morrissey was a superior villain to all of these a**holes.

Enid just isn't interesting. I did like her "JSS" episode but since then she really hasn't done much. Maybe she'll improve but right now she just feels superfluous.

And Jadis and her stupid haircut? Good God. The way she talks just makes me want to ram my head into a desk. And WOW BIG SURPRISE, she betrayed Rick. Couldn't have seen that coming a mile away, could we?

They really need to trim some of the fat off this show, not add more of it.

This tells me that the main actors are getting too expensive for them to receive a lot of screen time ... And AMC is cheap.

I'll be interested to see her back story. The TV Scavengers seem much more cult-like than their comic counterparts.

Comic counterparts? I thought that Jadis and her garbage misfits were created for the show.

The Major Effects A Writers Strike Will Have On The Walking Dead Season 8

Quote:
Originally Posted by ComicBook.Com
As the production start of The Walking Dead's gets closer, it is creeping up with with the threat of another writers' strike.

The AMC series is set to begin production on its new batch of episodes on Tuesday, April 25. If an agreement between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television producers is not met by May 1, the strike will begin the following day. This would inevitably halt production on upcoming episodes of The Walking Dead and any other show set to shoot beyond that date.

Late night talk shows will switch into non-stop rerun mode, scripted dramas will be halted, and several effects of the strike will be felt across various media platforms.

The reason for the strike is the writers are not getting what they want.

The minds behind our favorite television series are looking for greater compensation for their efforts which has lessened as many shows have cut their episode numbers per season. Other issues such as health care benefits are also a factor.

The last writers' strike took place from November of 2007 through February of 2008. Shows like Lost and Breaking Bad were effected as both ended up having shorter than planned seasons. Lost pumped the brakes, going from 23/24 episodes per season down to 14 with its fourth while Breaking Bad's premiere season was cut from nine episodes to seven.

Which suggests a scary scenario for The Walking Dead fans...

If the writers' strike goes into effect and the AMC series is unable to film beyond its first couple of episodes at best, the production might have to adjust its episode count for Season 8.

Typically, The Walking Dead films from late April/early May through late October/early November. In that time, the show how been putting together 16 episodes which air in two halves, one running from October to December and the other from February to April.

If The Walking Dead does not opt to film beyond November, which it may given the alternative winter weather conditions which would arise in their Georgia locations, the producers may elect to cut the episode count in favor of having any sort of season at all. There's no telling how many episodes the show will be able to produce in 2017 if the strike lasts as long as it did in 2007-2008.

This would also mean a halt on promotional materials like trailers.

Season 8 of The Walking Dead is set to adapt one of the most beloved arcs in Robert Kirkman's comics: All Out War.

Every summer, fans pack into San Diego Comic Con's Hall H for a panel packed with The Walking Dead cast members which presents the first trailer for the upcoming season. After being screened in the panel for thousands of fans, the trailer is released online and the promotion train for The Walking Dead's new season leaves the station.

Typically, the AMC series has filmed almost half of its season by the time the cast and crew head to San Diego Comic Con. The first few episodes largely comprise the trailer but it is a very really possibility that the show might not have anything beyond the first few days of production to share with fans by July if the writers don't come to an agreement.

The deadline for the strike is quickly approaching. By May 1, fans will have a much better understanding of exactly how The Walking Dead will or will not be affected by the strike. As more details emerge, ComicBook.com/TheWalkingDead will to continue to update the situation.
