Producer Ann Hurd is continuing to tease the new season of The Walking Dead, and has hinted at the group getting back to the city for the first time since Season One.
"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."
Getting back to the city could be huge for the group and the show, even if it’s just in flashback form. If they get out in linear fashion and make it to the city, that would be a return to their roots of sorts. If it’s in flashbacks, then we will undoubtedly learn more and more about where these characters.
The new season of The Walking Dead premieres October 12th on AMC.
