Y’all probably know that the best TV series of last year—and one of the best adaptations of a comic book ever—was the brainchild of Frank Darabont, who brought Stephen King’s words to life in two great films and one so-so one: The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and The Mist. (Can you guess which one’s the so-so one?) Well, the horror master is returning the favor: Stephen King will be co-writing an episode of The Walking Dead . . . With his son, comic-book writer and novelist Joe Hill (Locke & Key).
Storyline-wise, it looks like Season Two will be on the farm. We won’t see the prison until Season Three. Come on, guys! Hurry it up!
The series is slated to return to AMC in September. Here’s an advance pic from next season:
