The format will be varied...
In an interview with Zap2It, The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd said that the next seven episodes of The Walking Dead will not follow a formula of showing only a few characters per episode, as it did in "After" when it followed Michonne and Rick & Carl. Here are highlights:
On the format of the next seven episodes: "We do mix it up. There's not a formula that we're following necessarily for the back eight, but there will be times when we focus like we did in that episode. Since we're not in the Prison any longer and everyone's on the run, there's going to be a significant focus on survival, but I also thing we'll have an opportunity to know a lot of these characters a lot better."
On the relationship of Rick and Carl: "I think that what we can examine is a struggle all parents have in raising a teenager or an almost teenager, their desire to be independent. But you've got the life-or-death stakes of the zombie apocalypse. There's so much there to mine for great character development and storytelling."
On Chandler Riggs: "Chandler, you can't really call him a child actor. He goes head-to-head with our incredible adult cast. They don't treat him like a child."
