Fourth season of ‘Walking Dead’ will be truer to comics
In a new interview to discuss the fourth season of ‘The Walking Dead.’ Robert Kirkman, who created ‘The Walking Dead,’ comics and serves as an executive producer on the series revealed that the fourth season will be truer to events that took place in his comic book series.
Kirkman revealed that a number of scenes from the upcoming season were directly lifted from the source material because new showrunner Scott Gimple is a big fan of the Image Comics title.
“He absolutely loves the material,” Kirkman told The Hollywood Reporter. “Season four probably has the most number of scenes that are adapted directly from the comic series or very close to what we did.
“A good deal of that is from Scott and the way he views that material and puts forth that extra effort to work it into the show in a way that it all works.”
Kirkman also confirmed that The Walking Dead season four will pick up several months after its predecessor, and find the show’s cast “very different from the last time we saw them”.
“We go into season four with characters you’ve known for four years and still find new things to explore with them and new aspects of their character and see that they are growing and changing in extremely dramatic ways due to the strains that this world has put upon them.”
The Walking Dead airs on AMC in the US and on FOX in the UK.
