In oktober gaat het nieuwe seizoen van The Walking Dead van start op AMC. In een interview onthulde uitvoerend producent en effectengoeroe Greg Nicotero wat details over de nieuwe zombies. Hij denkt dat het zesde seizoen veel unieks zal laten zien, waaronder een gloednieuwe techniek van zombies maken. Nicotero zei: “We’re doing a few things we haven’t done before, which is digital augmentation of couple of walkers. We’re moving noses and putting a cavity there. Taking the area underneath the ribcage and shrinking it down. Kind of Bernie Wrightson style. That stuff is what makes it more exciting because it gives us more opportunities.”

Volgens Nicotero worden ieder seizoen aanpassingen gemaakt aan de Walkers: “We refine the teeth even more and we just keep changing it up, and every season it’s been different and we just keep pushing it a little bit more. It’s been really fun. We sculpted full muscle arms and then we added sagging flesh off of them as everything is about to drip off. [Showrunner] Scott [M. Gimple] has one very specific thing that he is conscious of, which is that it can’t be a Ray Harryhausen. It can’t be a walking skeleton. It always has to be muscles. It always has to be something that is motivating the movement.”

Het zesde seizoen zal gigantisch veel Walkers bevatten: “In the pilot, we had two days where we had 150 or 200 walkers when we were shooting with the tank. But this season, we had 300 walkers in one day, which is the most we had ever done. The shots in the trailer, the swarm of walkers on the road, that was one of the shots. It’s just about taking the threat of the walkers and putting them in the forefront. When Scott pitched the season, he went, ‘This is when the zombie threats are going to elevate and escalate.’ “

Seizoen 6 van The Walking Dead gaat van start op 11 oktober op AMC. Fear the Walking Dead is te zien vanaf 23 augustus te zien op AMC.
