Producer and comic series creator Robert Kirkman has revealed that all episodes have been scripted for the second season of AMC's apocalyptic zombie drama; Plus he is hoping to see fan favorite Michonne in season three.
The Walking Dead is scheduled to hit airwaves on AMC this October for it's full 13-episode second season. Kirkman revealed that the writing team consisting of Evan Reilly (Rescue Me), Scott Gimple (FlashForward) and Angela Kang (Terriers) and one freelancer helped flesh out what is promised to be a more emotional and violent follow up season to the Golden Globe nominated program.
"We’re well into the show; scripts are all completed and the final touches are being made and I think he cameras will be rolling in a few weeks. We’re all very excited to get back to Atlanta and sweat."
As for where the second season will pick up events-wise, Kirkman confirms where we'll begin. "The last time we saw our characters, they were loaded up into the RV and they were driving away from the CDC. We will definitely see where that caravan is going and follow them on their journey. So, pretty much where we get blown up.," he said.
Although it had been rumored that the sword wielding femme fatale Michonne may join the group of survivors this season, that appears to be out of the cards for now. Kirkman said he would like to see her in a potential third season.
"Frank and everybody involved in the show love her. We’re all very interested in working her into the show."
Kirkman went on to address the potential involvement of horror novel mastermind Stephen King writing a potential future episode for the show saying, "That’s been discussed a little bit. Everyone involved on both sides of that are very anxious to make that happen; AMC is excited; Frank Darabont is excited; I’m excited. I know Stephen King and Joe Hill are excited. We’ll see if we can make that come together. I can neither confirm nor deny (Laughs)."
