This Fourth of July weekend see every Walking Dead episode from the beginning. AMC’s Dead White and Blue Weekend marathon leads up to Talking Dead Season 5 Preview Special. Host Chris Hardwick interviews cast and creators between commercial breaks featuring interesting tidbits like Carl’s stunt double is a 31-year-old woman.
Executive Producer Gale Anne Hurd discusses Terminus, a trap that lured Rick’s group with the promise of sanctuary.
“Sanctuary for all, has many meanings,” Hurd said.
Not everyone at Terminus is necessarily evil according to Andrew J. West, who plays Gareth. He describes his character as pragmatist and a survivor.
West will join Executive Producer Scott M. Gimple and actress Aisha Tyler as guests on the special, which will be followed by two more specials that give an inside look at the production of the series and how extras are transformed into the walking dead.
Talking Dead Season 5 Preview Special Sunday 9:00 p.m. July 6.
