TVGuide spoke to Walking Dead creator and series executive producer Robert Kirkman about the possibility of learning about what actually went down during the early days of the outbreak. So far audiences have seen very few flashbacks, and it looks like it will continue that way when the show returns Sunday, Feb. 10.
Here is what Kirkman had to say:
I don't find that to be interesting at all. In zombie fiction, you see the outbreak, you see the first days and the craziness in almost every other story told in this realm. I'm very proud of the fact that, for the most part, The Walking Dead has skipped over that part.
Kirkman goes on to say that if you are curious to see how an outbreak happens to:
Go watch Zach Snyder's Dawn of the Dead movie to see the early days of this, or Shaun of the Dead does it really well.
That is fine with me. I am excited to see the show return in February!
