We reported last week that King Ezekiel and his pet tiger, Shiva, may be set for the next season of The Walking Dead (here).

Producer Scott M Gimple had said of the character and his ‘Kingdom’: “If we do see The Kingdom, it’ll be a big reveal and it’ll be another new world to inhabit and explore. Can we have a real tiger? That’s a great way to put the questions to me because it sort of corners me into a spoiler. I would say, in a really cheeky way, that we can have a lot of things and people are gonna have to wait and see. If I were just watching the show – I’d want to see that tiger.”

Now we get more details as The Walking Dead’s official Instagram has used National Pet Day to share with us that Ezekiel and Shiva are set for the next season.

Seriously, a man with a tiger that fights zombies. Tell us you don’t want to see that!


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
