SPOILER ALERT! IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE WALKING DEAD SEASON 2- DO NOT READ!
MTV.com’s Splash Page blog talks with new The Walking Dead executive producer/ showrunner Glen Mazzara and his plans for the second season, which premieres October 16th, including the season’s main location- Hershel Greene’s farm. Mazzara had this to say:
“Our approach to our group of survivors when they reach Hershel’s farm is that they are a plague unto themselves. Nothing goes right for Hershel once Rick and his band show up. They make the zombie apocalypse look like kids in a candy story”…
Mazzara also brings up the Governor, but doesn’t say much in regards to him. Read the rest of the article here.
We all knew that if The Walking Dead was a success, every other network would be falling over themselves to get a “zombie” show into production, which is now happening. The CW has announced their zombie drama, The Awakening, about two sisters relationship, or lack of, during the beginnings of a zombie apocalypse. NBC, not to be outdone, has also recently announced their upcoming show, Zombies vs. Vampires. Gee, I wonder what that will be about? These both sound horrible to me and stink of cashing in on a popular show. What I wonder is, what happened to shows that didn’t make it to the air a few years ago? Like Babylon Fields and The Last Larry? It seems like networks didn’t want to take the chance without somebody else paving the way for them. Lame. I’d love a bunch of different, original shows about zombies, but I don’t think that’s the deal here.
Check out this new zombie filled promo for G4′s Attack of the Show with host Kevin Pereira and new co-host Candace Bailey.
