COMIC BOOK SPOILERS TO FOLLOW >>>
AMC is doing its best to keep the dead walking this Halloween season.The October 4th season finale of The Walking Dead spin-off Fear the Walking Dead didn’t leave fans in the cold for long, Season 6 of the original series returned last Sunday, October 11.
While Fear had a slow start, as was promised by show runners, by the end of the brief 6 episode season our dysfunctional new “family” woke up from their LaLaLand stuper and should be ready to face the walker apocalypse head on next season
As he repeats throughout his interview with Newsbeat reporter Steve Holden, David Morrissey is “very excited!” about being The Walking Dead‘s new Governor.
Check out the clip:
David Morrissey was not one of the two actors we were lead to believe were the options for this prestigious role (The original battle for Governor article). I don’t know much about David Morrissey, which makes me both nervous and very intrigued. (I would refer to him by his last name, but one of my favorite musicians happens to share the last name.) I am seeing a lot of excitement on message boards, and I am looking forward to season 3. As is said in the video of the interview, The Walking Dead has such a large fan following (9 million viewers watched the Season 2 finale) that the new Governor better bring his A game. No one wants 9 million people pissed off at them.
First is a clip from back in March in which we see an interview with Gale Ann Hurd, producer on The Walking Dead. She explains how the first month that the cast is in town, they go over characterizing and talk with the writers about their take on the show. I love that they do this. She said that before they ever write, this is their process. She also describes season 2 as the “road season” – meaning that you don’t know where they are going to end up, or what they will run into. (Something that I did not know: Gale also worked on the Terminator and Aliens movies.)
Next, AMC did a “looking ahead” piece after the end of season one. The co-producer Denise Huth said in this that she spoke to the creator of the Walking Dead comics – Robert Kirkman – and asked him if he had any thoughts about the way it would all end. He responded by saying that it will never end. Again… extraordinarily exciting.
The Walking Dead will premiere this Fall on AMC.
