In a recent interview with AMC, Frank Darabont revealed one carryover plot line that we can expect to see transition from the comic book to season two of “The Walking Dead” and one preview of a whole new scene.
The information isn’t really a spoiler if you read the comic, but it does set us up for some very interesting storytelling in the next 13 episodes of the series.
“I don’t know if we’re giving anything away, but something as simple in the comic books as ‘Lori gets pregnant’ winds up being sort of a fantastic complication on screen. In the story we’re telling, it’s just not that simple as it was in the comic book because you have those opportunities to really spin the story out in many different layers,” said Darabont.
The showrunner for AMC’s Golden Globe and Saturn Award winning zombie apocalypse drama also revealed that he jumped in to direct an action scene involving one of the ‘new’ characters. “I jumped in and directed a sequence involving T-Dog trying to elude a zombie in a big snarl of abandoned cars on a deserted highway. It’s a bit of cat-and-mouse in all the dead traffic, and it was terrific fun to shoot.”
