Comic creator Robert Kirkman talks about Season 5 of The Walking Dead

Even though The Walking Dead Season four hasn’t ended very long, we at FTN HQ are excited for season five already…

The flames are being fanned by comic book creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman who has been talking to Entertainment Weekly about the direction of next season: “This is the first time we’ve really finished a season and gone back to the same place for the next season, so that’s kind of cool… I think this show works best with a cycle or ramping up and ramping down, and lulling people into a sense of security and speeding things up and keeping them on guard. I will say that we definitely start this season in an up cycle, whereas last season we definitely started the season in a down cycle. So we’re certainly changing things up in that respect and we’re gonna kind of hit the ground running this season.”

But what of the mysterious Terminus, where the survivors have now found themselves? “There’s been a lot more secrecy on set. Just because any images that get out of any kind of things that are seen do in a sense spoil that cliffhanger, so we’re trying to keep things a little more tight this time around. There’s always people crowding around where we’re filming and trying to get spy spots of what we’re doing and stuff, but for the most part we’ve been able to avoid that.”

Who’s excited for season five? Let us know…

Based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard.

Season five of The Walking Dead is set to air on AMC this fall.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
