Robert Kirkman refutes some elements of the reporting surrounding changes to the way that “The Walking Dead” TV series will be written for its second season. At TV Guide.com, Kirkman is quite direct about the departure of Charles Eglee in particular, whom, according to the writer, is partially departing because Frank Darabont is remaining.
“Chic Eglee is a high-level television writer. He was brought onto The Walking Dead with the idea that Frank was going to work on the first season and then go off and do movies,” Kirkman says. “Chic didn’t want to be second-in-command on a show when he’s used to being a top dog, and so he decided to go off and do something else, which is something that happens and is not a big deal.”
As for everyone else being let go? Kirkman says . . .
“It’s kind of unfortunate that it’s being reported that our writing staff has been fired because that’s not the case”
“It’s a little premature to be nailing down. I don’t know if it’s going to be a freelance situation or if we’re going to have writers in a writers’ room,” he says. “That’s something that’s being worked on now.
What do you say, readers? Satisfied with what Kirkman has to say?
