The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman recently spoke about the show’s second season, here is some of what he had to say….
In regards to the season one DVD set he said, “There’s a lot of cool behind-the-scenes footage, we had a great guy on set every minute of every day to catch a lot of candid footage and it’s put into bunch of documentaries. Plus, of course, we have the six episodes.”
When asked how work on season two is going he stated, “Great. 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 envelope of what you can do on TV.” He also revealed the setting of season two would mostly have new places, “I don’t know if I can go into that, but I know [show runner Frank Darabont] has said we’re going to see Hershel’s farm. We’re looking to take some picturesque rural landscapes and playing with that and coming up with some cool zombie visuals. We’ll see some of the locations of the first season, but we’re going to mainly focus on breaking new ground. Oh, and we’re going to feature a lava planet.”
Kirkman also said they are planning on pushing what they can do with the zombie effects saying, “We’ve been talking to [special effects master] Greg Nicotero a lot about some cool zombie stuff he has planned. As much as this show pushed the envelope of gore on TV, the joy of seeing the best zombies ever done on a TV show every week, all I can say you haven’t seen anything yet.”
