The Walking Dead has never been known for its happy-go-lucky attitude to life, what with all the deaths and stabbings and shootings and whatnot, but according to creator, Robert Kirkman, we ain't seen nothing yet when it comes to how dark this show is going to get — starting with the remainder of Season 4:
When asked if the show will further explore the darker side of humanity, Kirkman responded:
The rest of Season 4 starts February 9, and it gets pretty dark. I guess the answer is ‘yes. But just how far we go and what we do and stuff, you’ll just have to watch. But I will say that the show will continue to get a little bit bleak at times and a little bit darker as the world progresses, and as things get a little bit more dire as they have in the comic. So we’re not going to be pulling any punches, and there’s a lot of stuff coming up that AMC is very worried about, which makes me happy.
If AMC is worried about the show treading a dark path, that must mean some really controversial stuff is on the way.
So what can we expect to see in the remainder of Season 4? Well, without wanting to give away too many spoilers, if the show follows some of the comic storylines, we might experience the brutality of the Hunters. But, if the show is really brave, they might go with the arc involving a couple of kids and a knife. That would be very dark indeed.
