The Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang has teased what we can expect from the upcoming final season of the popular zombie-fighting franchise, suggesting we are going to be seeing the characters in a whole new light.
With hints of big changes ahead for the personalities and story arcs of some of the characters, Kang offered a clue of the “uncomfortable” shift we’ll see over the course of season 11 in an exclusive interview with Digital Spy.
“What I’ll say is, there are characters such as Daryl that find themselves in situations that are so different in some ways than ones they’ve been in before.
“So they’re trying to navigate them in ways that can sometimes be uncomfortable for their characters, because they feel like they knew how the world worked, or what their place was in their group, and they’re having to kind of expand beyond their circle.
“I think in a general sense, that’s kind of what a lot of our characters, in different ways, are dealing with. And then, of course, there’s scares and all the usual fun stuff that we get to do in our show.”
Earlier this month Daryl actor Norman Reedus also teased a big tonal change in terms of the visual effects too, going from a “black and white western to a technicolor Willy Wonka film”.
“It’s very surreal. Every season feels like a different show in a certain sense, but this season, it’s a whole new backdrop, a whole new colour palette, a whole new attitude.
“It’s sort of in Technicolor all of a sudden and it takes some getting used to, which you can see in our group [of survivors] – we’re having trouble getting used to it, too.”
The Walking Dead will air season 11 beginning August 22, 2021 on AMC in the US. Meanwhile, UK viewers can now watch all episodes via STAR on Disney+, where season 11 will premiere on August 23.
