Behind the New Season of 'The Walking Dead'

"It's like a Beatles concert here!" moderator (and Talking Dead host) Chris Hardwick exclaimed over the teenybopper-esque screams of fans at the panel for AMC's zombie drama. He's not wrong — it was easily the biggest draw at this year's NYCC, timed as it was a day before the show's Season Five premiere and with most of the cast in attendance. Creator Robert Kirkman promised that the new season will hew closer to his comics, and executive producer Gale Anne Hurd added that it's going to be "kick-ass, utterly relentless and totally heartbreaking." And it seems like the actors are into The Walking Dead as much as the fans.
