Buy Game of Thrones Merchandise

The Walking Dead will never go past the comic books it is based on, the producers have confirmed. Unlike Game of Thrones‘ season 6, which completely went past George R.R. Martin’s novels, showrunner Scott Gimple told THR that it is not going to happen with their show:

“With some plans we have for the future, I don’t think so. I think it’s unlikely, but it depends where the book stops.”

As of now, it doesn’t seem like Robert Kirkman’s comic books are going to stop anytime soon and they are also several years ahead of the television series. Gimple adds:

“I don’t know if anyone sat down to do the math, but if the show is gaining on the comic book, it’s at a very slow pace. We’re expanding storylines so every now and then we zip through the comic book, and then we slow down for a while and add a bunch of stuff that’s not in the comics. There’s not any danger of that happening in any way.”

Producer David Alpert jokes:

“When we get to season 20, then I think we’ll be caught up. And at that point, we’ll have to have Robert really pick up the pace [with the comics].”

Kirkman interjects:

“If we say season 20 too often around Andrew Lincoln, he will murder us, and then you won’t have to worry about anything!”
