As if you needed the nightmarish thought to be trodden across your head once more: none of your favorites on The Walking Dead are safe. In a recent interview with Digital Spy, series creator Robert Kirkman basically revealed that he knows when every character on the show will die if he and the writers continue to follow its comic book source material closely.
Although Kirkman and company have deviated pretty far from the source material in the past (The fan favorite Dixon Bros. say hello.), it's safe to say that the creator of a story knows the basics of where he's going to take it. If you think that he takes his killing characters off easily, though, you'd be mistaken.
As kill-happy as the series is, Kirkman shed light on the tumultuous feelings he has when having to write in another TV show death:
"Doing the comic, it was fine because it was just lines on a paper. Whatever. We're killing that guy. Cool. But the show, it sucks because we all work together, we hang out, and have a great time. But, you know, the story's gotta get done and people gots to die, as I like to say. It's pretty rough."
He went further on to say that, sometimes, though, the writing group does change their minds at the last second. In fact, it's happened quite often!
"We can't really give them that much warning, because there's always a chance that we'll get into actually writing the scripts after we plan things out and we're like, 'Nope, that character's living' -- which has happened many times. So we don't want to have many false news giving situations."
