THE WALKING DEAD Producer Teases How Many More Deaths Before Season Ends?


Warning: The following story contains spoilers for the second half of The Walking Dead Season 3

Walking Dead special effects designer and executive producer Greg Nicotero has let the cat out of the bag by revealing that the current third season will end with more death.

No surprises there. He told THR:

“We’ve established a certain scenario on our show where nobody is safe — and certainly in the back-half of our season, it doesn’t get easy for anybody. We have the whole Woodbury community with the Governor (David Morrissey) and our principal cast. We’ll probably end our season minus a castmember or two.”

Further teasing the conflict between Rick and the Governor’s camps, Nicotero points to a more expansive second half of the season when the story picks back up in February:

“[The fight] moves around a lot. It’s very possible there might be another attack on Woodbury. The beauty is you’re not confined to one location, even though we spend a lot of our season at Woodbury or the prison. The bottom line is that we’ve established the conflict between the Governor and Rick, and we’ll explore that a lot more in the second half.”

As teased in recent previews, Andrea will be at the forefront of affairs now that she knows Daryl has been captured by her new romantic flame. But which side will she choose? Laurie Holden teases:

“It’s not so easy; she is in a town where it’s guarded and the Governor has men who have disarmed everybody. Woodbury almost becomes a cage, like its own prison, in the second part of the season. Andrea is going to do anything and everything she can to protect the people she loves.”

    I’m starting to feel like they’re using death as a gimmick to attract the audience, rather than using it as a mechanic to not only leave a great, emotional impact on the audience, but also the characters and drive them to new places. I sure hope I’m wrong.
