Narrative made Gimple say yes to action-loaded story in Season 8

Season 8 of “The Walking Dead” is going to be high on action and the level of the action drama would be at a level higher than the show has witnessed in the past seasons. Showrunner Scott M. Gimple has hinted at this development and explaining the detail, he said that he was eager to push the show in various ways; ways that have not been implemented in the show in the past. The fact that the show was completing eight seasons made him push the envelope even harder as he did not want to repeat anything that he had done before.

The narrative was also moving into the zone of tussles and fights and thus, Gimple agreed to incorporate action-packed stories in several episodes of the show and they would come one after another.

According to the showrunner, the first four episodes are so high on action that they are bursting at the seams and even the fifth one that is relatively quieter does not feel really quiet. He also said that they are trying to structure the stories in distinct ways.

Meanwhile, the latest comic book issue of “The Walking Dead” just revealed some big detail.

It revolves around Michone’s group moving into a safe zone that is away from the eyes of enemies. However, something said within the group creates enmity. Siddiq says that Rosita loved him and since she had been sleeping with others before entering a relationship with Eugene, it could be very likely that Siddiq fathered the child of Rosita.

The next issue of the comics would further shed light on the revelation.
