Robert Kirkman Has An Endgame For AMC’s The Walking Dead

While talking to reporters at SXSW, Robert Kirkman the creator of The Walking Dead announced “one day The Walking Dead will end.”

But not anytime soon…

“Decades from now, you will be able look back and … you never would have guessed from the beginning where it was that we were going to end up,” Kirkman said. “Having the luxury of telling a story over such a long period of time with so many different characters is going end up with something really cool and unique when it’s all said and done.”

Did you hear that? Kirkman said decades, that could mean 20 years of Rick Grimes wandering around zombieland.

Do you think any writer has the ability to keep an audience entertained for 20 years?
