The man responsible for creating “The Walking Dead” in the comics is not very happy with the direction of the series, particularly how the TV series creators ended in a cliffhanger in Season 6. Robert Kirkman said in a recent interview that the TWD creative team has to listen to the fans and that he expects some changes in the treatment next season.
Kirkman shared his thoughts about The Walking Dead Season 7 cliffhanger to Variety.
“Look, I think as a creative person I have to acknowledge that all responses are valid, so I definitely have to take note that there’s a seemingly significant portion of the audience that wasn’t happy with that direction,” Kirkman stated in the interview.
“So in that respect I think everyone on The Walking Dead creative team has taken note of that, and I don’t know that I would expect a similar cliffhanger at the end of season 7.”
Kirkman said though that it’s “just a small portion of the audience” that were disappointed with the cliffhanger ending in The Walking Dead Season 6 and that most fans “actually like the mystery” and the “guessing game” as they anticipate The Walking Dead Season 7.
The Walking Dead Season 6 made Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, one of the fan favorites characters and villains of the popular show.
Negas was seen swinging his bat, named “Lucille” at one of the characters with the intention to kill him, and that was how the season ended.
Fans and viewers of The Walking Dead will have to wait for about six months to see where Lucille landed and which character will be killed to start The Walking Dead Season 7.
