Are you going through zombie withdrawal? More specifically, are you yearning for more of AMC’s “The Walking Dead?” The short first season left quite an impression on audiences, breaking records left and right with its viewership. Robert Kirkman, the creator of the comic from which the show is based recently spoke to EW about season two of the hit series and he claims, “You haven’t seen anything yet.”
When it comes to the overall production of the second season, Kirkman says everything is moving along smoothly. “We’re mapping out everything. We got a lot of cool ideas. Everyone here is mindful of how well received the first season was. We’re breaking our backs, story wise, to make sure the next season is twice is good, or three times as good, with a lot of twists and turns and pushing the envelop of what you can do on TV.”
He also opened up about the setting of the show. For the most part, in season one the survivors fluctuated between the camp site and Atlanta. Without spilling too much, Kirkman revealed, “we’re going to see Hershel’s farm.” He continued, “we’re going to mainly focus on breaking new ground. Oh, and we’re going to feature a lava planet.”
So how long will you have to wait until the show returns? October! Yep, they’re sticking with the AMC Fearfest scheduling near Halloween. It worked the first time and ties into the vibe of the show. Hold on. You can make it.
What do you think of the setting for season 2? Does it follow along with the comics?
