“There’s an expectation now,” says creator Robert Kirkman. “First season, nobody knew what was coming. I can say it’s made everybody work harder. It’s empowered us to try harder. We’re taking that seriously and really trying to deliver.”

Showrunner Frank Darabont: “We also have writers that are really fans of it. The first six episodes, nobody knew what the hell they were dealing with except me.”

“You start to realize the most dangerous things out there are the monsters inside,” says Sarah Wayne Callies.

“The Walking Dead fans are the most badass in the world. You’re the smartest, you’re the best and we want to feed you,” says Jon Bernthal.

“The writing so so superb. Every script is gold,” says Laurie Holden about season two.

“I get to run around with a crossbow shooting zombies,” says Norman Reedus, on the best part of being on the show.

Robert Kirkman on what he would do in the zombie apocalypse: “I would kill myself. I don’t have any urge to do that, but I’ve been writing about this for so long … I’d jump off a bridge. People come up to me and say, ‘I’d hole up in a school’ … no you wouldn’t. You’d be somebody’s pet, because the whole world would turn into prison.”
