The Walking Dead Getting Itself a Writing Staff

When word broke that the writers of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” were let go a few months back, fans started becoming increasingly more and more nervous. Well not to worry, folks, a new staff has been acquired and everything is very much on track.

According to Deadline Glen Mazzara (who wrote one of Season One’s episodes on a freelance basis) has closed a deal to join AMC’s breakout hit “The Walking Dead” as a writing executive producer and No.2 to creator/ executive producer/ director Frank Darabont for the show’s upcoming second season. He is in the process of putting together a staff of about 5 writers.

“The Walking Dead” Season Two will be home to a proper 13 episodes. Season One will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on March 8th.

    I get a feeling season two will be a lot like Parks and Rec season two. Ie, it’s short first season is really good but the second season knocks it out of the park.

    This is not good. Get back The Shield writers, do not let any of them go!

    • The Woman In Black

      Mazzara was a producer and writer for The Shield. Don’t you think he’ll keep at least a few people from that show around him?

        I certainly hope he will. I also wouldn’t mind if he used writers from Breaking Bad, Carnivale or Deadwood (1st two seasons). I would also be a fan of them hiring David J. Schow and John Skipp to give the show an even greater edge.
