The Walking Dead Cleared For Season 2 Despite Not Airing Yet
The Walking Dead Season 2 looked like it might be a sure thing coming out of Comic-Con 2010, and a new report corroborates those prospects. Season 1 hasn’t even aired on AMC yet, but someone working on the show’s crew expects to be back on the job in 2011.
Shooting will resume next February, according to a report by Fangoria.com that cites an anonymous inside source.
Additionally, it looks like Season 2 will stretch out to a standard 13 episodes, and producer/director Frank Darabont would like to switch locations to somewhere outside of Atlanta.
“It would be great not just to get out of the heat, but to present a different idea to the audience visually and tonally by having it be winter,” he told Comic Book Movie. “There’s some really cool stuff that Kirkman did, where they find the one zombie that’s frozen to the ground. I’d never seen that before and that’s really cool.”
If Darabont turns his cameras back on in February, he should have plenty of snow-covered U.S. locales to pick from, but it sounds like we’ll have a better idea of where he wants to go in the coming months.
