So, it appears as though Carl won’t appear on The Talking Dead.
The fact that Carl won’t appear on The Talking Dead is disappointing. I understand that sometimes adult situation and conversations are had on the program, but remember that 14 year old Chandler Riggs was there for the filming of many of these scenes and could provide valuable insight into the making of those scenes and how younger people react to the show and some of the more mature content on it.
Sounds like this came down from the television station American Movie Classics, which has been shortened and advertised as AMC since they started to focus on featuring original programming back in 2002.
Here is the tweet from Chandler Riggs (Carl) himself:
