Recently TVLine shared a video interview (where they hilariously use the terms “thrill ride” twice) with showrunner Glenn Mazzara (and the cast) who revealed that a prequel movie could be in the works. The interview is a bit playful, so take what he says with a small grain of salt. With that said, you should expect a movie if the show continues to break records.
“The way I look at this prison is when the outbreak happened there was a zombie movie that took place in a prison,” explains Mazzara. “One day maybe well go back and film that movie, and now our guys come in and they’re sort of the sequel to what happened. So there are survivors in that prions, damage in the prison,” he continues. “So walkers keep coming in, its never safe. They fooled themselves into thinking the farm was safe. From the jump they know this prison is not safe.”
Speaking on the popular Governor, played by David Morrissey, he adds, “You will not have to wait long to meet [him].”
