TWD-Episode-403-Glenn-Hershel-325This week, Robert Kirkman discusses the possibility of comic book villain Negan appearing on the show, while American Dad will feature a character voiced by Steven Yeun in a future episode. Plus, Lori’s demise is dubbed one of the most shocking on TV by E! Online. Read on for more:

Entertainment Weekly asks Robert Kirkman about when Negan, “that other iconic villain from The Walking Dead comic book,” might show up on the TV show. A hint: don’t expect to see him in Season 4.

Steven Yeun will voice a character on FOX’s American Dad, in an episode that will air later this season, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Uggggghhhhh… This was hard to watch,” E! Online says of Lori’s death, calling it one of the most shocking TV deaths.

According to Adweek, The Walking Dead’s ratings show that it’s “not just that it’s still possible for a show to have the same kind of mainstream appeal network execs remember from the good old days, but that it’s possible for that show to exist on cable.”

Jon Bernthal tells Yahoo TV he’ll “always be a fan” of The Walking Dead and does his best to ban spoilers when meeting up with his former castmates, like Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus.

Time reports that The Walking Dead garnered the second-most Twitter buzz of any TV show in 2013 (behind Breaking Bad), according to Nielsen.

CarterMatt thinks one of the year’s biggest shockers was Rick’s banishment of Carol: “The reverberations of this move are so drastic, we don’t believe they have been fully felt yet.”

NPR traces the history of zombies, citing The Walking Dead as an example of the walkers “having a pop culture moment for some time now.”

TVWise reports that the second half of Season 4 will hit U.K. screens on February 10, just 24 hours after it airs in the U.S.

Business 2 Community applauds the creative talent that’s made The Walking Dead “a juggernaut, not only on the airwaves, but in cyberspace.”

FEARnet highlights Funko’s February release of a new series of figures: injured Daryl, Carl, Maggie, a Woodbury Walker and Penny.
