THE WALKING DEAD

MovieWeb has posted a few quotes from "The Walking Dead" showrunner Glen Mazzara during a conference call about the future of the show moving to seasons three and four, including the appearance of Michonne, the introduction of the prison and other elements from the comic that may make an appearance in the television show.

"There is a lot of great material from the comic book," Mazzara told MovieWeb. "This show would have to go on for twenty years to get to all of it. I think the Tyrese character is someone we are interested in introducing at some point. We still have Morgan and Dwayne, who are out there from the pilot. We are interested in them. There are new characters that will be original too the series. Not coming straight from the comic book. I think the first two seasons have served as a prologue. Now we are hitting the ground running. I see Season 3 resetting the show in terms of what I really hope to convey."

Airs Sundays on AMC

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

The Team Alien/Team Mutant debate continues with all manner of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" celebrities coming out of the woodwork to express their opinions on Michael Bay's statement that the Turtles will be aliens as opposed to mutants in the film reboot. Among those expressing support for Bay's concept were Brian Tochi and Judith Hoag, who played Leonardo and April O'Neil, respectively, in the original film.

"Michael Bay wants to do a different take on the turtles origin story ... Mazel Tov!" Tochi said.

The two actors are joined in their support by "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" creator Peter Laird, who responded to the fan backlash on his blog advising fans to wait and see how the endeavor turns out.

"I would actually encourage TMNT fans to swallow the 'chill pill' Mr. Bay recently suggested they take, and wait and see what might come out of this seemingly ill-conceived plan," Laird said. "It's possible that with enough truly creative brainpower applied to this idea, it might actually work. I'm not saying it's probable, or even somewhat likely… but it IS possible."

Opens Christmas 2013

The Investor Information section of the Weyland Industries viral website has opened up for fans to peruse. Additionally, an image of the good ship Prometheus has surfaced online in its full glory.

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: BLOOD AND CHROME

It's only been a few days since a trailer for the "Battlestar Galactica" prequel, "Blood and Chrome," hit the Internet and SyFy has already quashed rumors the network will be airing the show. Deadline reports SyFy has decided not to move forward with the project beyond the 90-minute pilot, although the series may continue as a webseries.

"Though the vision for 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome' has evolved over the course of the past year, our enthusiasm for this ambitious project has not waned," SyFy President of Original Programming Mark Stern said in a statement. "We are actively pursuing it as was originally intended: a groundbreaking digital series that will launch to audiences beyond the scope of a television screen. The 90-minute pilot movie will air on Syfy in its entirety at a future date."
