So, The Walking Dead comic book continues to storm through the comic charts and has just passed ten years and is currently knee-deep in a game-changing story called All Out War, but how long will the TV series run if it continues to be successful?
Appearing at the Produced By panel at the PGA at the weekend, reports Indiewire, Walking Dead producer David Alpert talked about the comic story: “I happen to love working from source material, specifically because we have a pretty good idea of what season ten is going to be. We know where season 11 and 12…we have benchmarks and milestones for those seasons if we’re lucky enough to get there.”
The issue is, will the series deviate from the source material or will it try to run alongside it for the most part? Will Rick still be the star – as in the comics – that far down the line? Is it possible to stay on the comic track as it – mostly – has so far? Or will it become necessary to bring in new characters and go off the tracks completely?
Only one way to know… keep watching.
