Running down the top fandom events of the upcomming year
4. AMC's "The Walking Dead" (February and October)
Fans are still recovering from the midseason finale of AMC's "The Walking Dead." As The Governor laid bleeding on the grass, fans cheered the demise of the man who took Hershel, the survivors' moral center, away from them. To say the finale was hairy would be an understatement, as the survivors were forced to split up, each mourning those that were lost. Fans are counting the days until the most popular show on cable resumes in February to see how each pocket of fan favorites will attempt to survive outside the confines of the prison. Where is Carol? Is Lil' Ass Kicker really dead? And who will fill the evil void left by The Governor? Comics fans have a good idea, but will the show continue to mine its comic roots? With the showrunners upping the ante every season, it is going to be one hell of a ride in Fall 2014's Season 5, and if that isn't enough, we should also learn what the promised "Walking Dead" spinoff is going to be all about.
