"The Walking Dead" cast are currently filming Season 5 in Georgia. AMC talks to executive producer of the show, Gale Anne Hurd, where she talks about the new season plus more. Season 5, Episode 1 has been completed and perhaps they are working on the next episode of "TWD."
Gale talks about the production of "The Walking Dead" Season 5.
"Everything is fantastic! We're knocking on wood - it's been gloriously sunny and while it's been hot, it at least hasn't been too humid. So, Georgia is breaking us in a little slowly," says Gale.
"It feels like being in elementary school the first day you're back after summer break. Everyone is so excited and they're hugging... we really do have one big family. We've already, not surprisingly, worked with a few walkers. We've really hit our stride now. All of our crew members are completely prepared, our cast is top-notch and confident, the scripts are coming in and we have such fantastic directors."
She also talks about the one thing they have learned from "The Walking Dead" Season 4. The team wants to continue to learn how to do things well and "make it better each season."
"We have a little extra time to shoot this premiere episode. One thing we learned is when we come back with a new season and we want to launch it right, we have enough time to do so."
Gale reveals that in order to keep the show fresh and interesting, special-effects guru Greg Nicotero has played a key role. Fans of the show can expect a few surprises when "The Walking Dead" returns with Season 5.
Also, the executive producer thinks that she is looking forward to the reactions of fans after they watch the season premiere instalment. Gale thinks that the cast, crew and fans are part of a big family.
"The Walking Dead" Season 5 airs this October on AMC.
