Remember all those rumors that The Walking Dead was going to use all freelance writers for its second season instead of a full-time writing staff? A source who would know says not to believe them.
In an interview with Heat Vision, Walking Dead comic-book creator Robert Kirkman said that reports of showrunner Frank Darabont using all freelancers to write the show and not having any full-time writers on the payroll are wrong. “We have a full writing staff,” explained Kirkman. “There are three full-time staff writers and a freelancer: Evan Reilly [Rescue Me], Scott Gimple [FlashForward] and Angela Kang [Terriers] and one freelancer.”
