There’s been talk of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” lasting up to 12 seasons (or more), but recently showrunner Scott Gimple discussed just how long it could go, what the end game would be, and more. Read on!
“I would say ‘yes,’ [there is an end game],” Gimple told Collider at last week’s Saturn Awards. “I actually don’t like spoiling myself on the comic. I read it as I go. Robert’s offered to tell me the whole thing so I get general aspects of it.”
He continued, “I know the emotional end game of the show, but there’s practical aspects I want to keep with the comic. With these characters, you definitely have to think of the emotional end game, and that is very much a part of where I’m headed. But I want to have the flexibility to change the practicals with the comic, and I don’t want Robert to spoil the whole series for me.”
In terms of the proposed spin-off series AMC announced a while back…
“I have little to do with the spin-off… This I do know. It’s set in the world of ‘The Walking Dead,’ but from what I understand, it’s not like Daryl’s cousin or anything… I would never say never [to a crossover between the shows] because if I was a viewer I would say that sounds awesome, but we’re doing our own show. I also think a crossover might be tough because it would take a lot of [license] within the comic story. We’ll see. When we get to all-out war, who knows? We’ll add another faction. It’ll be the Saviors and the Hilltop and the ‘Spin-offers’!”
