The Walking Dead opened the season with a lot of violence and brutality. The show killed off Glenn and Abraham and this made many fans angry. The show got really dark, but it’s been known to change its tone every season in order to change things up a bit.
The question is this: Will the tone for season seven remain the same? Well, showrunner Scott Gimple or will things get a little bit better and the structure for the second half of the season will be different, too.
“I will say 7B’s vibe is very different from 7A’s vibe. The ending of 7B is very different than the beginning of 7A. Just the vibe in 7B, I was just talking about it with Andy [Lincoln] last night. It’s just a very, very different half season than the half season that preceded it. Even with structure, what we’re doing right now with the episodes and seeing where everyone is at, the structure is very, very different than the back half. There’s a lot more variety to the structure. It’s just a very, very different situation, but 6, 7, 8 … Wow, we’re really close, aren’t we? I would say the end of 7A is very different than the beginning of 7A. That’s the thing that kind of launches that different tone of 7B.”
