‘The Walking Dead’ Team Makes Extra Efforts To Fool Spoiler-Seekers [VIDEO]
Spoilers of "The Walking Dead" have been dug up by fans. Websites are being built just to post constant updates regarding the production of the show, while fans are dedicating their time and effort just to promote "The Walking Dead" Season 7.
The production team of the "The Walking Dead" is, however, making efforts just to protect the storyline from being prematurely revealed to the fans. "The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman even revealed how the show is trying to distract fans just to lead them away from revealing spoilers, TV Guide has learned.
The Hollywood Reporter had an interview with Kirkman, wherein he said that the production has hired doubles and assigned them in places, so that fans will think that they have seen people in places when they are actually not there. Therefore, the photo of Daryl riding his motorcycle might not be actually real, and it could therefore be a double for Norman Reedus.
Side Reel reported that Kirkman made a confirmation that "The Walking Dead" is not going to send advance screeners of the premiere to journalists, so that spoilers will not leak. He emphasized that they are taking extra security measure for the distribution and international dubbing, since these are some of the cause of leaks that happened in the past.
Kirkman also said that trying to hide certain things from their audiences seem exciting. He says that "The Walking Dead" in this season is big, which is why they are going for miles just to keep people from knowing what will happen in the first episode and so on.
Kirkman also said that people inside the production who will try to leak some of the shows parts will have to go on a witness protection. All of these secrets will be revealed once "The Walking Dead" Season 7 premieres on Oct. 23, Sunday at 9/8 on AMC.
