THE WALKING DEAD: More From Gale Anne Hurd On Season 4 And A Possible Movie
Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd talks here about when we should expect to see the fourth season of The Walking Dead on our screens, reiterates that there are currently no plans for a movie and reveals whether or not AMC will bring the show to this year's SDCC.
In a lengthy interview with Deadline, The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd has talked in detail about the future of the series before the second half of season three premieres tonight on AMC. You can read her thoughts on the departure of showrunner Glen Mazzara and creator Robert Kirman's role in the production of the series by clicking on the link below. As for the future however, it should perhaps come as no surprise that the rumours and buzz surrounding a big screen spin-off of some sort are still nothing more than just that. "Right now, seriously, we’re focused on Season 4," Hurd told the site. "If there was a movie, there are so many decisions that would need to go into it. The availability of the cast and all of that."
As for when we should expect to see The Walking Dead back on the small screen, it doesn't sound as if AMC will be changing their plans (unlike Showtime's Dexter for example which was recently moved to a summer premiere date). "I have a feeling that it will more than likely it will be sometime in October and more than likely sometime during AMC’s Fearfest. I don’t know when exactly, we haven’t even discussed it." Over the past couple of years, a lot of movie studios have decided to shun the San Diego Comic Con. Will AMC? "I don’t know yet if we’ll be at Comic-Con. We don’t even begin those discussions for a couple of months. It’s contingent on a lot of things. I love Comic-Con so I’ll be there even if the show isn’t. I’m a geek anyway. And I love New York Comic-Con too and we try to be there as well. But part of it depends on what slot we get and if we have to shut down production. And that’s out of our hands."
