Robert Kirkman Discusses The Upcoming Season 3 Finale Of “The Walking Dead”
To say “The Walking Dead” is a big deal may be a bit of an understatement. In fact, the AMC show is the highest rated basic cable drama of all time, and is shown in 122 countries in 37 languages.
Season 3 comes to a close this Sunday, and Robert Kirkman, the mastermind behind it all came in to pay Kevin & Bean a visit. Did he reveal anything about what happens Sunday? No. Will he accept Kevin’s request to kill Carl? Probably not. But he did give us some insight about the characters, and news on Season 4’s progress!
According to a recent Rolling Stone interview, star Andrew Lincoln (“Rick Grimes”) estimated that 27 people die in this Sunday’s finale. When asked if that was accurate, Kirkman joked that the number was closer to 32. He said it is the largest scale-episode ever in that respect, and though there are less zombies than in season 2’s finale “there’s more awesome”. (By the way, no matter how many times Kevin asked, Kirkman wouldn’t answer who wins in the Rick vs. Governor fight. Sorry, wait for Sunday)
What about Season 4? Robert Kirkman said they are already “knee-deep” in the writing process for the next season. He said writing for season 4 while promoting this season makes things tough, because he doesn’t want to accidentally reveal any spoilers in interviews. It is good news for fans though, because filming is planning to start in May, with Season 4 set to premiere October 2013.
