Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead comics series and producer/writer on the AMC television show, recently gave some insight into the second season. He dismisses the rumor that The Walking Dead showrunner Frank Darabont abolished a full-time writing staff in favor of the freelance model, reiterates that Stephen King will hopefully write an episode of the second season, and reveals that S2 production will begin in a few weeks and where the second season will pick up. He also teases a bit about if/when we can expect to see Merle (a crappy character carried by the great Michael Rooker) and the fucking awesome Michonne from the comics.
Watching season one for the first time, or giving it a rewatch? Henri, Devin and I hashed out each episode in TV Talk.
