Producer Ann Hurd sat down with Entertainment Weekly to dish about the new season of the show and why it’s great to have the whole group back together again.
"The show has spent a lot of time in primarily rural settings. But you’re never going to find the cure to the zombie apocalypse in the sticks. Now with them embarking on a mission, they have to reenter what we call the City of the Dead. There are many cities of the dead that they’ll have to encounter to complete their mission. So not only does it make it more difficult because the number of walkers, but also there are more hiding places in which their human antagonists can lurk. So however stiff and difficult the stakes have been up until this season, now they’ve been raised even further."
There’s just something about the group dynamic on The Walking Dead that makes this an amazing show to dig into. It’s not always a helpful tool to the characters themselves, but seeing the group all together is something that is comforting in a show where such a thing is a luxury.
