One of the biggest mysteries left unanswered from Season 4 of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” is Beth Green’s whereabouts, a question show runner Scott Gimple addressed in an interview posted on AMC’s website on Thursday.
“I will say Beth, in some state, is totally somewhere,” Gimple said in response to the fan-submitted question. “I’ll say then, that that’s going to be answered next season. And I’m really excited to tell everybody the answer. It might be a little heartbreaking, it might be a little heartwarming, but it’s going to be interesting.”
Gimple fielded a variety of questions in the Q&A piece, including where he comes up with ideas for the show, what made him decide that Rick would go zombie on Joe, and how he decides which characters will die.
And so “The Walking Dead” offseason begins. A tidbit of information here, a morsel of information there. But in the end, we’ve still got to wait more than six months to find out the answers.
Kudos to the AMC and “Walking Dead” marketing teams, they know what they’re doing to keep the show’s fan base interested, even when the show’s on hiatus.
If things unfold the way they did last year, Season 5 of “The Walking Dead” will begin filming in mid-May, and we’ll probably see a still photo from the set within hours after the cameras start rolling.
A summer marathon with exclusive content from the show’s set and the release of the Season 5 trailer at Comic-Con will keep us interested as mid-October approaches at a snail’s pace.
Don’t forget the Season 4 DVD/Blu-ray announcement and release in early June.
Let’s hope Netflix is quicker this year about putting Season 4 on its streaming video service than it was last year.
Is it October yet?
