The Walking Dead (TV Series 2010– ) Poster

(2010– )

Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (46)
All of the principal actors have a "Last Supper" the day they film their death scenes. This "unorthodox idea" came up to Frank Darabont's mind when he was watching the 1st season of Sem Saída (2009), a Comedy Show starring the actor and singer Gustavo Goulart.
Actors and actresses, who play walkers, have to go through "walker school" to learn how to walk and move like walkers.
During an interview, Robert Kirkman claimed Norman Reedus (Daryl) originally auditioned for the part of Merle Dixon. He was rejected, but his audition so intrigued the show-runners, that they created the part of Daryl just for him.
For season three, the make-up team used darker skin tones for the walkers, to show further decay as time had progressed.
During lunch breaks, the zombie cast would eat together, while the rest of the cast ate together.
In an interview on National Public Radio, Steven Yeun (Glenn) said that his parents (who emigrated from South Korea as adults) watch the show faithfully, but do not always understand the nuances of the English used in it, so they get a bootlegged version with Korean subtitles. Yeun also said that his father once asked him to thank Melissa McBride for saving his life. Even though Yeun reminded his father that it was all make-believe, Mr. Yeun insisted that his son should thank her, which he then did.
From season to season, the opening titles "decompose" more and more.
The prison set took about two months to build.
During the filming of season five, Norman Reedus requested to keep Andrew Lincoln's beard clippings "for some strange purpose known only to Norman Reedus."
The name Edwin Jenner, the doctor at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is a reference to Edward Jenner, who developed the first vaccine (which was for smallpox).
In season one, of the twenty characters at the camp, only eleven are actually from the comic book. Rick, Lori, Carl, Shane, Dale, Glenn, Andrea, Amy, Jim, Carol, and Sophia.
Judith Grimes is played by twins.
There are two zombies in the first episode of the show, that are the same actors and make-up as two of the zombies used in Zombieland (2009).
Not a single character appears in every episode.
The woman (Phillip's wife) in The Governor's (David Morrissey's) family photograph, is of Producer Denise M. Huth.
The prison set is located outside of Senoia, Georgia, and is roughly a mile from where Hershel's farm was filmed.
The episode which spans the most time, is the pilot.
During filming of season six, Alanna Masterson (Tara) was pregnant with her first child, a baby girl, who was born on November 5, 2015. Eagle eye viewers will be able to spot some subtle cover-ups during full length shots.
Michael Cudlitz played Officer John Cooper on Southland (2009). He and his partner were nicknamed "The Walking Dead" in the series' fourth season.
Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, and Lennie James are all English. Lauren Cohan moved to London when she was fourteen.
In Spanish, "rosita" means little rose, while "espinoza" is an adjective used to describe something full of thorns. So Rosita Espinoza would mean "little rose full of thorns".
The first season of the show mostly comes from the first six issues of the comics. This arc is titled "Days Gone Bye", which is the same name as the pilot.
Most-Tweeted-about television show in 2014.
Among the common nicknames for the walking dead that are shared in different groups, are "Walkers", "Lamebrains", "Biters", "Rotters", "Skineaters", "Lurkers", "Roamers", "Geeks". The term "zombie" has never been used as the people of the show live in a reality where zombies aren't a part of pop-culture such as Resident Evil or Dawn of the Dead.
Carol's husband never appears in the comic, he is only mentioned to have been killed.
Between seasons one and five, Carl Grimes has only aged twice, from age twelve to fourteen. However, Chandler Riggs will be eighteen years old when season eight progresses. This means there could be some sort of time jump (seen in the graphic novels) to ensure that the actor isn't too old for his role.
According to Norman Reedus, he accidentally incited a small panic among The Walking Dead (2010) fans when a photo surfaced of him sporting a prosthetic dismembered stomach. This photo does not spoil the end of Daryl Dixon, but rather Reedus' character in Pandorum (2009).
In 2009, Thomas Jane agreed to play Rick Grimes, because of his friendship with showrunner Frank Darabont, but when he signed with HBO for another series, he said no to Frank. He says he regrets saying "no" to the role.
In an online interview, it was revealed that Frank Darabont envisioned having several self-contained episodes that would not continue the main story. One such episode would have been the season two premiere. It would have involved Sam Witwer (who Darabont used in The Mist (2007) and played the tank zombie in the series premiere) as a soldier in a Black Hawk Down (2001) styled Atlanta. Witwer's character would have encountered several of the cast before being bitten and locking himself in the tank.
From season to season, the title score is transposed between a semi-tone and a full tone lower to reflect the darker atmosphere of the series.
The show was made into a haunted house at Universal's Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando, Florida. There was also a maze in Universal Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights for their 2012 event.
The timeline of the second half of season four (eight episodes) takes place in eight days.
The Dixon Brothers, T-Dog, Jacqui, as well as Morales and his family, are not characters in the comic book, although they are each featured prominently in season one of the television series.
The actors portraying the walkers are actually more talented than one might think. They have to walk and sound like the creatures, while also avoiding breathing too much. They also have to jolt their limbs to take bullets realistically, and effectively pretend to eat fake human flesh and meat.
The Walking Dead (2010) Creator Robert Kirkman was on the set throughout the filming of the first season.
Originally, the characters of Lizzie (Brighton Sharbino) and Mika (Kyla Kenedy) were going to be cast as different gendered twins, with Mika being a boy named Mike. However, after Kyla Kenedy's audition via Skype, they scrapped the idea, so they could cast her.
In season three, the beginning of the first and last episodes have the same camera sequence. The Walking Dead: Seed (2012) begins with a close-up shot of a walker's eye, with the camera slowly zooming out, while The Walking Dead: Welcome to the Tombs (2013) begins with a close-up shot of The Governor's eye, with the camera slowly zooming out.
In season two, Beth is seventeen years old. In reality, Emily Kinney was twenty-five years old when she joined the cast.
After filming of the prison concluded, most of the set was dismantled, including the fences, guard towers, and the sky walk.
The prisoner, "Tomas", physically resembles the comic's depiction of The Governor.
The first half of season five takes place in only four days.
While the word "zombie" is not used in the show, it is featured multiple times in the comic books and the video game series.
The logo seen on the t-shirt of Rick's son Carl, is that of another Robert Kirkman creation, "Science Dog".
In late 2015, there was a casting call for a character named Orin. A description for this character says that he is smart, brutal, inappropriate, hilarious, et cetera. It is rumored that he will show up at the end of season six. This character is most likely Negan.
During cold filming (for example, "Beside the Dying Fire"), walker breath has to be digitally removed in post-production.
The Alexandria Safe Zone is actually filmed in Senoia, Georgia, across the railroad tracks from where the Woodbury set was created.
Frank Darabont also directed four of the show's cast members, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Juan Gabriel Pareja, and Melissa McBride, in The Mist (2007). DeMunn also appeared in Darabont's The Shawshank Redemption (1994) and The Green Mile (1999).
Melissa McBride is one of two series regulars, that has been credited as a co-star. The other one being Norman Reedus.
Deanna, the leader of Alexandria, has the biggest character change from the comics. The leader in the comics is actually a man named Douglas. Deanna's husband, Reg, is named Regina in the comic, and is Douglas' wife.
Daniel Bonjour cut his honeymoon short to take the role of Aiden.
This show was officially renewed for a seventh season, on October 30, 2015.
As of the fifth season, there are three The Wire (2002) alums on The Walking Dead (2010). Chad L. Coleman, Lawrence Gilliard, Jr., and Seth Gilliam.
Rick's sidearm is a .357 Magnum Colt Python.
During season two, Glenn tells Maggie his favorite activities on a Friday night, were playing Portal, while eating Hot Pockets and drinking Mountain Dew.
Morgan Jones' sons name is Duane. Duane Jones is the name of the lead actor who played Ben in the original Night of the Living Dead (1968).
While Woodbury is an actual town in west Georgia, scenes featuring the town, were filmed in downtown Senoia, Georgia, which is about thirty miles away.
Rutina Wesley was rumored for the role of Michonne, before Danai Gurira was cast.
While Daryl Dixon (played by Norman Reedus) isn't in the comics, on which the show is based, readers will be familiar with his weapon (the crossbow, wielded by Dwight in the comics).
In season five, episode seven, "Crossed", a sign on the church wall contains Bible verses with living dead imagery.
Ross Marquand auditioned for the role of Gareth, but instead, he took the role of Aaron. These two roles are very different, and show Ross' acting potential.
Laurie Holden originally auditioned for the role of Lori Grimes, before she was offered the role of Andrea Harrison.
Jon Bernthal and Michael Rooker are involved with Marvel. Bernthal plays Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher, on Netflix's Daredevil (2015), and Rooker plays Yondu Udonta in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017).
The first half of season six happens in two days (excluding flashbacks): The Walking Dead: First Time Again (2015) happened the same time as the first half of The Walking Dead: JSS (2015), The Walking Dead: Thank You (2015) happened the same time as the second half of "JSS", The Walking Dead: Heads Up (2015) and The Walking Dead: Always Accountable (2015) happen at the same time, and the end of "Always Accountable", happening during The Walking Dead: Start to Finish (2015).
Sonequa Martin-Green originally auditioned for the role of Michonne. While she was unsuccessful, producers liked her audition so much, that they created the role of Sasha Williams for her (the character does not appear in the comics).
In the comics, Morgan Jones dies in the Alexandria Safe Zone, where a herd of walkers break down the walls, and attack survivors. This attack is foreshadowed in the season five finale titled "Conquer", where Morgan saves Daryl and Aaron from a mob of walkers, who come out of cargo trucks. Later in the episode, the wolves are seen leading the same walkers back into the trucks.
Renewed for a seventh season on October 30, 2015.
This is the second AMC show to feature an RV. The Walking Dead (2010) utilizes a Winnebago Chieftain, while in Breaking Bad (2008), a Fleetwood Bounder is used throughout the show.
Laurie Holden (Andrea Harrison) and Emma Bell (Amy Harrison) play sisters in the show. In real-life, they share the same birthday: December 17.
Creator Robert Kirkman addressed the beginning of this and the comic series as being strongly similar to that of 28 Days Later... (2002). According to him, it was "a complete coincidence. I saw '28 Days Later' shortly before the first issue of Walking Dead was released. That first issue came out in October of 2003 and 28 Days Later was released in the States in June of 2003. So we were working on our second issue by the time I saw it. It was going to be a matter of somehow trying to restage the entire first issue, because it was a very similar coma opening. I made a decision-which I pretty much regret at this point-I said, 'You know what? It's so different (from that point on), I will probably never hear anything about this.' And I was wrong."
John Hawkes turned down the role of the Governor.
In the entire series, Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, and Sarah Wayne Callies are the only cast members to have been credited alongside images of themselves in the opening credits. This occurred in the first two seasons only.

Three out of five of the actors in the film Straight Outta Compton (2015) have been on this show: Neil Brown, Jr. (Guillermo), Corey Hawkins (Heath), and Aldis Hodge (who played Michonne's boyfriend in a flashback).
Basically, when recurring cast members are promoted to series regulars, their names are added after the original series regulars in the opening credits. However, this is is not the case of Norman Reedus and Lauren Cohan, who are credited before Chandler Riggs who has been a regular since the first season.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

In the show, Michonne hates The Governor (David Morrissey) based on a hunch, and he only loses an eye. However, in the graphic novels, he brutally rapes her for days, leading to the loss of his eye, arm, and testicle, when she gets her revenge.
The season six opener features a scene in which Rick (Andrew Lincoln) asks Morgan (Lennie James) who taught him to fight with a staff, and Morgan remains silent. In response, Rick says, "I ask, you answer. Common courtesy, isn't it?" This is a reference to the series premiere, where the roles were reversed, as Morgan is questioning Rick about his wound.
In the season two premiere, Rick is on a rooftop in Atlanta, talking to Morgan Jones on a walkie talkie. In the background, Grady Memorial Hospital (which is featured in season five) is clearly visible.
Dale had not originally been scheduled to die as early as he did in the show. However, after his close friend, Frank Darabont, was fired as showrunner, DeMunn asked to be killed off. Later, he had a change of heart, but his death had already been scripted and budgeted for, so his request to continue on the series was denied.
In the comics, during The Governor's prison attack, Judith is killed after Lori is shot, and falls on top of her. The writers used this to worry comic book fans when Judith's carrier was filled with blood in season four, episode eight.
The last line of season four on television is "They're screwing with the wrong people!" However, on disc, Rick says "f-cking" instead of "screwing". Andrew Lincoln only did one take of the censored version, because he liked the similarities to the comics.
The last five episodes of season five (Remember, Forget, Spend, Try, Conquer) are named based on a quote by Dale in season one: "I like what a father said to his son when he gives him a watch that had been handed down through generations... I give it to you not that you may REMEMBER time, but that you may FORGET it for a moment now and then and not SPEND all of your breath TRYing to CONQUER it."
The set used in the construction site scene, where Abe is collecting materials for Alexandria, is actually the prison set, after being stripped down. You can see this by looking at the building behind them. It has burn marks from the Governor's attack.
In the season five premiere, when the Terminites were slicing throats, the main cast members were not told about the prosthetic necks and fake blood that would ooze through the trough in front of them. This caused them to act as if they were surprised, and as if they'd never seen anything like it.
As of season three, Carol (Melissa McBride) is the only known female character remaining from season one, making her the longest-living female character in the show.
The coat that Rick wears in the last episodes of season four, and most of season five and six, belongs to "Claimer Lou", the man he strangled in the bathroom at the house, in which he, Carl, and Michonne were staying, after the prison.
A few seconds after the season five mid-season finale "coda" ended, AMC's facebook page mistakenly shared a picture of Daryl carrying Beth's corpse, with the caption "R.I.P. Beth". It was badly received by people who had not watched the episode yet in the West Coast, Europe, and South America.
In the comics, it is Dale who is eaten by The Hunters, not Bob. Both of whom say "You're eating tainted meat, you stupid pricks".
At the beginning of season one, episode five, Edwin Jenner mentions in his live video recording, that it has been one hundred ninety-four days since "wildfire" (when the disease got out of control, but not yet global). This episode is on the fourth day after Rick wakes from his coma. If there is no mention or signs of a "disease" at the time of Rick's nearly fatal shooting (first episode), this suggests he could've been comatose for over six months.
The place where The Governor, Martinez, and Shumpert camp in the season four, episode six flashback, is the same place where The Governor and his soldiers wiped out the National Guard in season three, episode three.
At the beginning of the season five mid-season finale, before killing Bob Lamson, Rick says "Can't go back, Bob". This is the exact line that is spoken to Bob Stooky by Gareth at Terminus.
In season four, episode nine, when Rick is unconscious, the scene in which Carl leads the walkers away from the house, is the same as the comic (dialogue and camera angles).
At the end of season four, episode eight, the last words are "Don't look back, Carl. Just keep walking." Andrew Lincoln insisted that the whole phrase was left in, so the final word was "walking".
A Greene family member has died in three of the six mid-season finales. Zombified Shawn and Annette Greene were put down by the group in The Walking Dead: Pretty Much Dead Already (2011), Hershel was decapitated by The Governor in The Walking Dead: Too Far Gone (2013), and Beth was shot by Dawn in The Walking Dead: Coda (2014).
As of the season seven finale, Rick, Carl, Carol, Daryl, and Morgan are the only characters to survive from season one.
On November 10, 2015, it was announced that Jeffrey Dean Morgan had been cast as the well known villain Negan. Negan was scheduled to make his first appearance in the season six finale, which was scheduled to air on April 3, 2016.
Daryl gets a new crossbow in the season three episode "Clear", when Michonne brings him one from Morgan's apartment.
In the comic, Lori and Shane's affair was only a one night stand, instead of a regular occurrence, and is revealed in issue five, while in the show, in the second episode.
Beth's death, in the season five mid-season finale, caused an uproar on social media, with fans sending hate mail and death threats to Scott M. Gimple, along with boxes of plastic spoons being sent to AMC studios (a reference to the silver Washington, D.C. spoon Beth Found). A Change.org petition titled "Bring Beth Back" was also created, and had collected over one hundred thirty-five thousand signatures, and was even discussed on Good Morning America (1975).
Baseball bats have been featured more so throughout season five, possible to foreshadow a death like Glenn's comic book death, though with a different character. Kirkman debunked any predictions about Glenn dying in this way during an "@midnight" segment called "Fake Spoilers". Ultimately, these predictions ended up coming true anyway, with Glenn's death exactly mirroring the graphic novel.
The timeline of season three is just under two months, stated by Hershel in season four.
In the comics, all members of the Grimes family were shot. Rick, which led to his coma, and in the stomach in the prison, and in his hip in the season 7 finale. Carl in the shoulder and eye, and Lori, which killed her.
In Breaking Bad (2008), Walt rents a red Dodge Challenger from a man named Glenn. Coincidentally, Glenn Rhee, from this show, drives an exact model in the season one episodes: "Guts" and "Tell It To The Frogs".
The three questions Rick asks the woman in the woods, in the season four premiere, were foreshadowed by season three, episode six, when Rick was getting phone calls in prison after Lori's death.
Many deaths on the show, and in the comic are similar, albeit with different characters. In the comic, it is Carl who shoots and kills Shane, and Rick who kills the walker Shane. On the show, Rick stabs Shane, and Carl shoots the undead Shane. Dale's fate is shared with Herschel and Bob. In the book, Dale loses a leg to a walker and The Hunters. In the comic book, it is Tyreese who is beheaded by the Governor, in the show, it's Herschel. On the show, Tyreese is bitten on the arm, and it is chopped off by Michonne, in the comic book, it is Morgan Jones.
The church structure that plays a prominent role during the first half of season five, was not a real church. It was built from the ground up, and then aged to look appropriately worn and real. In the DVD extras, it is explained that they decided they had to build a new structure, instead of filming in a practical church location, because they knew from before the season started, that the brutal and bloody events in "Four Walls and a Roof" would have to be filmed there, and they were quite certain that no actual church would allow for those actions to be simulated on their grounds. By contrast, the town of Alexandria (which plays a similarly prominent role in the second half of season five) is not only a real community (Senoia, Georgia), but the development, in which the show is filmed, has a codicil in its charter, that its residents have to allow movies and television shows to be filmed there.
Chad L. Coleman, who portrayed Tyreese in seasons three through five, also appeared as "Coach" in Left 4 Dead 2 (2009), a game that is also about survival in a zombie apocalypse.
Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan cameo as husband and wife, Thomas and Martha Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). This is ironic, however, because Morgan's character, Negan, kills Cohan's character, Maggie's husband, Glenn in the comics, and the television series. Both also portrayed characters on Supernatural (2005), with Morgan notably playing Sam and Dean's father, John Winchester. Lauren Cohan played the antagonist Bela.
In the comics, the final Governer attack was in issue 48. On the show, it was season four, episode eight.
In the comics, Tyreese is never with a woman named Karen (there never is a woman named Karen). Instead, he was with Carol, and then Michonne, after a fight and complications with Carol.
It has been less than two weeks (about twelve days) from the season four mid-season finale, since The Governor destroyed the prison, and Hershel was killed.
Since the first half of season five took place in four days (excluding the subplot story line of "Slab Town" episode four), it had been five days since Rick bit Claimer Joe's neck.
Lori has sexual relations with both Shane and Rick within a 24-hour period, and it is implied that it was her first time to be with Shane (she removed her necklace with Rick's wedding ring). This could easily make Shane or Rick, Judith's biological father. Towards the end of season one, in the CDC, Shane says to Lori, "You know, you and I carried on quite a bit", implying what we saw wasn't the only time they had been together. In Season 7 Rick points out to Michonne that he knows Judith is Shane's daughter.
When Andrea shoots herself with Rick's revolver, you hear the empty brass casing hit the ground. But revolvers do not automatically eject the casing. However, this is a goof, and not a point of trivia.
All of the seven main characters died, as of the end of the fourth season. With the exception of Andrea; Dale, Merle, The Governor, Lori, Shane, and Hershel have all been brought down mercilessly by another character, whether it's before or after reanimation (Andrea committed suicide).
With just four appearances (three credited as a series regular), Andrew J. West has made the fewest appearances as a series regular.
In the first season, Daryl's back tattoos are covered, but when his brother sees his scars on his back, he has two tattoos there.
When Bob, Tyreese, Daryl, and Michonne hear the Terminus broadcast message from the radio, it was eight days before Bob would make his way there, and nine days before Daryl and Michonne would. Tyreese does not enter Terminus.
Scott Wilson, who plays Hershel Greene, appeared in the television movie The Jack Bull (1999) as a character called "Governor". Ironically, he gets killed by The Governor (David Morrissey) in this show. Wilson also plays a Governor in Young Guns II (1990), the role of the real-life Governor Lew Wallace, who promised to pardon Billy the Kid.
With Beth dying in the midpoint of season five, and Tyreese dying in the first episode of the season, this makes two deaths back to back. This also happened on season three, episodes fifteen (Merle) and sixteen (Andrea), as well as season two episodes eleven (Dale) and twelve (Shane). Lori and T-dog also die back to back. However, in the same episode, season three, episode four.
At the end of the pilot episode, when Rick is in Atlanta, the tank, in which he locks himself, to get away from the walkers, is a British Chieftain Mark 11 tank, and not an American M1 Abrams tank, as could be assumed.
