Even Robert Kirkman, creator of the comic series source material for the show, hopes that the television adaptation will thrill and surprise fans of the comic:
“One of the best aspects of the comic book series is [that] when you sit down to read an issue, you really have no idea what’s going to happen. Anybody could go at any moment. There’s really no sense of safety in the comic book at all.
And I wanted to preserve that for the television show. If people on the show have ideas for different things to happen, I encourage that. I want people to be as surprised by the show as they are by the comic book series.”
