'The Walking Dead' once again saw huge controversy in its season 8 midseason finale, when longrunning character Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) showed off a zombie bite on his abdomen, signalling his time on the series coming to an end.

Fans have to wait for three more months for Season 4 of "Fear the Walking Dead". Angela Kang has been promoted from executive producer to showrunner.

"The Walking Dead" Season 8 returns Sunday, February 25th, at 9/8c on AMC and will be available immediately after on-air broadcasts on iOS, Apple TV, Android, Windows, Fire Tablets, Roku, Xbox One, and amc.com. Showrunner Scott Gimple even came in for flak from the actor's father, but Kirkman told Entertainment Weekly that all this backlash meant that people cared for the character, one of the few remaining from the debut season. He's since collected up as many comics, statues, and autographed material related to movies and music that he can get his hands on.
