So when my agent and manager called they said, ‘You’ve been offered this thing on The Walking Dead. It’s to play a big bad.’ And at that time they didn’t know the character’s name 'cause I think it was supposed to be a secret. And I’m like, 'Is it fuckin’ Negan?’ And they’re like, 'I don’t know, we’re gonna have to call you back. Hang on a second.’ And I’m like, 'No, it’s fuckin’ Negan. And I’m fuckin’ doing it.’

All-new Season of The Walking Dead to be Revealed this Sunday June 12th

Fellow survivors, this past weekend we let you know that the upcoming season of The Walking Dead would be making its highly anticipated premiere this Fall. Next week also marks the annual E3 Gaming Expo, a celebration of all things video games, and we’re preparing one of our biggest and most pivotal showings for Telltale yet.

This Sunday, we’ll be revealing a sneak peek at the all-new season of The Walking Dead - The Telltale Series. There’s been a lot of speculation since the conclusion of the previous season in 2014 on where the story will go next… and we’ve been working hard in the studio as well as with Robert Kirkman and our friends at Skybound to take the series in an unexpected direction.

What we can tell you now is that this new season will serve as both a bold new entry point for the story, as well as a continuation of the saga that began with Lee and Clementine in 2012.

There’s more we could tell you right now… but the more we say… the more we’ll be spoiling what’s to come. Tune in LIVE this Sunday, June 12th to IGN.com at 3pm PT / 6pm ET for your first look at the new season, and to hear more from the team at Telltale on where things are headed next.

The best is yet to come for 2016 and beyond, and we can’t wait to show you what’s lurking just around the corner…

Fellow survivors, we’ve been hard at work on the latest installment of The Walking Dead here at Telltale HQ, and today we’re excited to share some news on its debut, as well as when you’ll be able to get a much closer look before its launch….

The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries will premiere its first of three episodes, ‘In Too Deep,’ this February 23rd on PC/Mac from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services, the PlayStation®Network for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One® and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, followed by a release on compatible iOS devices via the App Store, and Android-based devices via Google Play and the Amazon App Store starting February 25th. The second episode in the miniseries, 'Give No Shelter,’ will follow in the month of March, and conclude with the third episode, 'What We Deserve,’ in April. All three episodes in the miniseries will be available for purchase at the cost of $14.99 USD or equivalent when the first episode debuts, including access to the second and third episodes as they become available.

In this premiere episode, 'In Too Deep,’ Michonne joins Pete and his crew on the sailing ship The Companion as they cruise the coast for survivors and supplies. When a desperate signal for help draws them to a scene of horrific massacre, Michonne and the crew are lead further to the floating survivors’ colony of Monroe, which may just be harboring the person responsible for the carnage.

The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries stars the iconic, blade-wielding character from Robert Kirkman’s best-selling comic books, portrayed in-game by award-winning actress Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black). Haunted by her past, and coping with unimaginable loss and regret, the story explores Michonne across a three episodes of miniseries event. Players will dive into the mind of Michonne to discover what took her away from Rick, Carl, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.

Ahead of its release, fans are invited to get an exclusive extended preview of the first episode of the series on Youtube.com/TelltaleGames this Sunday February 14th at 8:30pm EST / 5:30pm PST. The development team will introduce the series allowing fans to experience the first five minutes of the premiere episode, exploring Michonne’s struggle to remain among the living while being haunted by her past.

Michonne has always been among our favorite and most complex characters in the world of Robert Kirkman and Skybound’s comic series, which just celebrated its 150th issue this past month! You don’t need to have read the comics to enjoy the miniseries, nor do you need to have played the past two seasons of the game, but the comics are at the heart of the universe and we certainly hope you’ll be inspired by Michonne to dive into the series. (Seriously, the comics are really f-cking good! If you haven’t read them yet, what are you waiting for?)

The Telltale team has been very hard at work in the world of the undead, and while a full third season of The Walking Dead is also currently deep in development, we don’t expect to be able to share any details until after this miniseries concludes. What we can say is that we expect this to be our biggest year for The Walking Dead we’ve ever had, and we’re excited to share this decidedly very different story with Michonne that will explore some themes we’re truly excited about bringing to the interactive space. So tune into our Youtube channel this Sunday for an extended preview, and set your sights on February 23rd for the long-awaited return of The Walking Dead!

This may seem cold, but I’m going to say it anyways. It’s time to get new people in charge of the show. Creator Robert Kirkman made some very successful comic books. That doesn’t mean he’s very good at producing a TV show. Showrunner Scott Gimple is quite frankly running this show into the ground. And the writers show no interest in creating complex, interesting characters or believable plots. Time for fresh blood across the board. I don’t think anything will change for the better otherwise.
