With the enormous success of “The Walking Dead” series on AMC, writer Robert Kirkman has more to play with these days. Along the increasingly gory storylines and the introduction of long awaited characters, comes a bigger budget to bring the dead to life.
In a recent interview, Kirkman said, “I think you might see a few more dollars on the screen in the third season. It’s gonna be bigger. We got Merle coming back, we got the Governor, Michonne; all that stuff is known. I’m trying to think of some buzz words or something that I can slip in there that AMC won’t get too angry about. I think there is an escalation that began at the end of the second season and there’s not any kind of drop off. We kind of start off at that point and it gets a little bit bigger and a little bit crazier moving into the introduction of the Governor and all the new elements that are coming in this season.”
Filming is about to start for its eighth episode. Arm yourselves, and shoot for the head!
“The Walking Dead” season 3 returns to AMC in October.
