Glen Mazzara On THE WALKING DEAD Seasons 3 AND 4; Seems TYRESE Will Be Introduced
The showrunner held a conference call yesterday and hinted at how both the next season, and the one after should shape up. He also says that Tyrese - a very popular character from the comics - is someone they are "interested" in..
Mazzara covered a lot of Walking Dead ground in a conference call yesterday. He addressed the appearance of Michonne at the end of the season 2 finale, as well as the direction they will be going with a few of our already established characters. But most interestingly he discussed the Prison we glimpsed in the final shot of the episode, and exactly how much of the next season our survivors would be spending there. A lot! In fact he says that storyline will carry over to season 4 too. Also, good news for fans of Tyrese, it seems T-Dog won't be assuming the role of that character after all, there are plans to bring him in..
"Right now, I do see the prison storyline lasting through both Season 3 and 4. I do think that is a major storyline. I know we were on the farm, perhaps, longer than people wanted. There were reasons for that. What we want is for that prison to not feel claustrophobic. I think the farm played a little claustrophobic for some people. Now that the entire landscape has fallen victim to the zombie apocalypse, zombies are literally at the gates of this prison. That prison is a very small safe corner. There is a lot of danger around. It won't feel like we are bottled up, the way we were on the farm. I do think that prison is a significant storyline, but we are also interested in opening up this world. The Governor has the world of Woodbury. There are other factors out there, other groups. I do think that Rick's group is stumbling into a much larger world."
"There is a lot of great material from the comic book. This show would have to go on for twenty years to get to all of it. I think the Tyrese character is someone we are interested in introducing at some point. We still have Morgan and Dwayne, who are out there from the pilot. We are interested in them. There are new characters that will be original too the series. Not coming straight from the comic book. I think the first two seasons have served as a prologue. Now we are hitting the ground running. I see Season 3 resetting the show in terms of what I really hope to convey."
He also promises that T-Dog will have much more to do, and if you don't like Lori, that's probably not going to change! Click the link below to read the rest of the interview.
