Even with “The Walking Dead’s” poppularity slipping there is talk of another spinoff. Scott Gimple, who served as showrunner for the past four seasons, who has a new title, Chief Content Officer, recently teased that more options are being discussed. Those options include more webisodes and another spinoff.
Executive producer Greg Nicotero already has an idea about the spinoff he would like to see.
The one thing that the comic book does great [is] when they introduce the cold weather and the winter. I had even written some webisodes that took place with a frozen zombie herd. And I think that our hopes are — my hopes — would be that we would get into an entirely different location, like a cold weather scenario. Because frozen zombies are f–ing awesome. Until they thaw out and then you’re screwed. Because they would freeze and thaw out, and they would be fine.”
Zombies on ice? While the ice and snow worked in films like Dead Snow, or the intelligent walkers in “Games of Thrones”, I have to wonder, do really need a frozen version of “The Walking Dead”? After all, AMC has failed to show a single winter in the entire series up to this point.
Nicotero said that there could even be a possibility of seeing it set somewhere other than the U.S.
We’ve done a good job of allowing our audience to populate the US and I think there’s a lot more opportunities outside of the US for a zombie show,” Nicotero said
I fully understand that the series still has legions of fans, but too many spinoff versions could overwhelm its remaining viewers. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. What do you think? Let us know.
