All guts, all gory! Entertainment Weekly takes you behind the scenes of the series that lives to shock. In this week’s cover story on the pulse-pounding return of The Walking Dead, we’ll take a deep dive into the jaw-dropping twists, scripts that made the cast physically ill, and a new villain who’s more terrifying than any zombie. To buy all six collectible covers, head here – and subscribe now for the exclusive interviews and photos, only in EW.

They came. They saw. They died.

When EW put together a roundtable interview with the six Walking Dead actors from season 1 who are still part of the show for our new 25-page cover package, we also decided to honor those who weren’t so lucky, and the result is a reunion of 11 of the most memorable characters to perish along the way.

We gathered these unlucky souls together to pay tribute to their characters and time on the show while they were in Orlando, FL last June at a Walker Stalker convention, and the result is the photo you see below.

Included from left to right are Madison Lintz (Sophia), Kyla Kenedy (Mika), Jeryl Prescott (Jacqui), Brighton Sharbino (Lizzie), Chad L. Coleman (Tyreese), Tyler James Williams (Noah), David Morrissey (The Governor), Emily Kinney (Beth), IronE Singleton (T-Dog), Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (Bob), and Robin Lord Taylor (Sam).

We’ll have more from each of these actors on Friday as they reflect on the highs and lows of being killed off the highest rated show on television. Until then, enjoy their moody silence and all-black attire.
