The creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman, has revealed the one storyline he’d most like to change.
Speaking to fans at the Walker Stalker Cruise 2018, Kirkman, who is an executive producer on the show and the co-creator of The Walking Dead comic books, revealed that, given the chance, he’d revive the pacifistic character of Tyreese (played by Chad Coleman).
“I miss the character a lot in the comics, and it was great getting to write him again for the show, and you know, I thought he was a cool guy,” Kirkman explaine. “I liked how gentle he was and how ill-equipped for the world he was and what a struggle it was for him to bash people’s heads in with that hammer.”
As reported on AAA, fans were up in arms over the news that Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), was to be written out of the hit show after the revelation in the mid-season finale that he’d been by a zombie.
But Kirkman has hinted that the character could still have some distance left to run.
Kirkman said: “He’s not dead yet. He might not die. You never know.
“But I think if, were that to happen, I think that it would have some interesting ramifications on Rick [Carl’s father, played by Andrew Lincoln] that I think would energise and really kind of set things in motion in a really interesting way.”
The Walking Dead is due to return for the second half of its eighth season on Sunday, February 25 in the US on AMC, and the following night in the UK on FOX.
