If you to are like me, then you also found parts of season 2 of The Walking Dead somewhat a little, dare I say it, boring in parts. I understand they’re building up the characters and story, but it just wasn’t for me. Thankfully it sounds as if season 3 will be a non-stop zombie-fest!
Recently AMC caught up with the series show runner Glen Mazzara, and he divulged a little into the third season.
When asked if this season is set to bring the scares? Mazzara replied;
“The show is very adrenalized in Season 3… All these horrible things are being thrown at our characters at such a relentless pace that the audience won’t be able to catch their breath and figure out what’s going on. So I think it’s just the idea that you are immersed in this apocalypse, and there really is no escape.”
The site also asked if the secret to The Walking Dead is keeping the zombies scary?
“The number one rule is not so much keeping the zombies scary, it’s keeping the show scary. [The zombies] are always a horror but as our folks learn to live with them, the new horror becomes what people will do to survive and to protect each other in this world. And what they’re willing to sacrifice to achieve their ambition. So it’s very much a human drama, and I think these new characters, particularly The Governor, certainly do play into that.”
The Walking Dead returns this October 14th.
