THE WALKING DEAD IS RENEWED FOR SEASON EIGHT 56

Season seven doesn’t even start airing until next week, but that hasn’t stopped network AMC renewing its zombie-apocalyptic ratings winner The Walking Dead for another series already, and its partner programme, talk show The Talking Dead, has been renewed too.

Season eight, consisting of 16 episodes, is thought to premiere late next year and open with the drama’s 100th episode.

In a statement, AMC president Charlie Collier said of the shows’ renewal:

“Eeny, meeny, miny, more. What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple and some of the hardest-working people in television to bring The Walking Dead to the fans. And, most important, thanks to those fans for breathing life into this remarkable series right along with us.”

Despite ratings slipping a little last season, The Walking Dead remains considerably ahead of its TV rivals, and while a viewing record was set during season five, season six still averaged 13.5 million viewers. The season six finale also ended on a cliffhanger, leaving fans wondering which one of the much loved characters on the show met their demise at the hands of Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Season seven of The Walking Dead premieres next Sunday in the US at 9pm.

FOO FIGHTERS CONFIRMED FOR BRIT AWARDS 2018 30

We are so delighted to announce that four-time BRIT winners and one of the world’s most successful bands Foo Fighters will perform on The BRITs stage for the first time on 21 February.

The international superstars will deliver one of their legendary live performances alongside performances from Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Stormzy and Dua Lipa.

Foo Fighters have sold more than 25 million records and sold out countless world tours. The band’s acclaimed ninth studio album ‘Concrete and Gold’ was their fourth to hit No.1 in the UK charts on release in September, topping the charts in more than a dozen countries.

BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “Anyone who was lucky enough to witness one of their shows on the recent sold out UK tour, or their set at Glastonbury – which was undoubtedly one of the best performances the festival has ever seen and a night that will be talked about forever – will know why Foo Fighters are the biggest and most exciting rock band in the world. Quite remarkably they have never performed at The BRITs, so I am over the moon to confirm a massive BRITs exclusive to have them grace our stage.”

With four BRIT Awards under their belt winning International Album in 2008 and International Group in 2008, 2012 and 2015 we can’t wait for Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee to bring the incredible Foo Fighters energy to The BRITs stage.

The nominations for the 2018 BRIT Awards will be revealed at ‘The BRITs Are Coming’ on Saturday 13 January. The show broadcast live on ITV will be hosted by Emma Willis and include live performances from Clean Bandit, J Hus, Jorja Smith, Liam Payne and Paloma Faith.

EXCLUSIVE: KATHY ZIMMER PREMIERES HER NEW EP ‘WHITE NOISE’ 38

Asked about the creative process behind the EP, including the inspiration for the songs featured on it, Kathy says:

“White Noise is the product of developing these songs over time with my band, and then adding the finishing touches of light synth sounds in the recording studio. My inspiration for writing the songs covered a lot of ground, from addiction to world affairs to a lopsided romance… but you should take away from the EP your own interpretation!”
