Frank Darabont Talks Writers For THE WALKING DEAD: Season 2

Finally the subject of the writers and THE WALKING DEAD: SEASON 2 have been addressed by the man himself, Frank Darabont. One of the biggest concerns for the second season was the dropping of all of season ones writers in order to bring in freelancers with "something to prove". Below is what director Frank Darabont had to say about the change courtesy of Deadline,

"It was all pretty overblown," Darabont said of the news. "It left the impression that I walked in one day and murdered 12 people. Would you like to know how many writers we were talking about? Two. My thought had been that they’d under-delivered, and a change was necessary. I had to do too much of it by myself last year, and that was only six episodes. This season, it’s 13 and we’ve hired a fantastic writing staff. We hired Glen Mazzara as our Number Two in the room. We consider him our head writer and he’s just a fantastic asset. We’ve also got three other staff writers in Scott Gimple, Evan Reilly from Rescue Me, and Angela Kang. Plus Executive Producer Robert Kirkman, who wrote the original comic book, is also writing for us."

Darabont continues, "It’s fair to say that the first six episodes were teeing up a lot of conflicts that will be more fully explored in our second season. We find a growing conflict with our two main guys, Rick [Andrew Lincoln] and Shane [Jon Bernthal]. We’re really excited about putting all of the characters on a chessboard and seeing how wonderfully and effectively we can toss conflict into the game."


There you have it from the man himself. THE WALKING DEAD: SEASON 2 hits AMC this Halloween. Stay tuned for more information as it leaks in.
