‘Sometimes we go too far,’ says the showrunner of The Walking Dead’s ‘dark’ final season.
As fans prepare to check into the second episode of the last season, THE WALKING DEAD’s lead writer Angela Kang has teased one of the post-apocalyptic drama’s worst entries yet.
On Sunday night, the second episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead will air, as the horror thriller nears its terrifying conclusion. As the show continues on Disney+, recent statements from showrunner Angela Kang have shed light on some of the show’s darkest scenes.
As The Walking Dead enters its 11th and final season, Angela Kang has recognized that some viewers may find the show too grim.
Last Sunday, the final installment of the flagship horror series began with a bang, as Alexandria came face to face with the advanced community known as the Commonwealth.
‘Acheron: Part II,’ the second half of the two-part season opener, will eventually explain what Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Dog do after being separated from the rest of the group.
Kang highlighted a disturbing monologue that occurs in the second episode in a recent interview with Digital Spy, which she believes is a perfect example of establishing the correct “balance” amid the show’s darkest moments.
While she agreed that TWD’s writers have the “freedom to go dark,” she also stated that they don’t want to go too dark for international audiences.
“We have a certain amount of leeway to go dark because we’re on basic cable in the United States,” she explained.
“At the same time, we can’t go completely dark on some platforms. We don’t have to, and we don’t always want to.”
Every Sunday night at 9 p.m., the series’ targeted adult audience may tune in for a fair dose of zombie action and post-apocalyptic drama.
The series is also accessible on a variety of streaming services, including Amazon Prime Video and Disney+’s new Star service.
Angela Kang wants to make the show as accessible as possible to fans all over the world who are ready to get their hands on the highly anticipated final season.
“I think we’re always trying to find that balance, and for some folks, we may go too far. We don’t always go the extra mile for others.
“So, absolutely, it’s something we constantly ask ourselves: ‘Is this too dark?’ But isn’t the world dark?’
