THE WALKING DEAD’S Greg Nicotero Wants Fans to Think in “Bold” Season 6

In an interview with The Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple and special effects makeup artist and often times director Greg Nicotero during the recent Saturn Awards, Gimple talks about “tackling the story in different ways and playing with structure,” and Nicotero wants fans to think.

“Listen, very, very bold moves. Scott has written the season premiere and I’ve directed the season premieres over the last two years and this one, and what I love about what we’re doing in the season premiere of this one is it’s bold, and we want our audience to think, and they get to put together the puzzle that we are presenting to them, knowing that by the end of the episode they will have arrived at the conclusion that we want them to arrive.”

And even though the show is based on a graphic novel, and the fans want them to stay true to it as much as possible, as do all fans, it seems that they still want to entertain their audience, to give them something unique as Nicotero goes on to say this:

“We’re taking bold moves, and they’re risky, but we wouldn’t do it any other way.”

It does sound like they might be doing something different as Gimple teases that the first three episodes will be ones that we don’t want to miss. With that said, this last season had several “must watch” episodes, and it shows by the number of nominations it had at the Saturn Awards (7), including Best Syndicated/Cable TV series, Best Actor in a TV series (Andrew Lincoln in a tie-win with Hannibal‘s Hugh Dancy), and Best Supporting Actress in a TV series (Melissa McBride), of which they won in.

We’d like to congratulate the nominees and winners at the Saturn Awards as they were all deserved, and we look forward to getting more quality sci-fi, horror, and fantasy shows and movies in the near future.
