The latest issue of the Walking Dead comic book (number 154) is out now, and in the “Letter Hack” section, Robert Kirkman speaks up about the controversial season finale (or non-finale, as some see it) where viewers waited 90 minutes for Negan to pick someone and then we didn’t see who. Kirkman tries to explain what he and the staff of the show were thinking.
“Okay, the season six finale has certainly caused a fervor online. EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT. Some people love it. Some people are indifferent. Some people HATE it. We weren’t trying to game the audience, we weren’t trying to drive you crazy, and we certainly weren’t trying to FORCE you to come back for season seven… we hope you were always planning on doing that and still plan on doing it.”
“We did want you to talk. And talk you are.”
Can’t deny that!
Here is the full letter to the fans, as scanned by CBR:
Anyone want to guess what the show was setting up?
