With so much of the ongoing comic still left to adapt, the producers of AMC's "The Walking Dead" aren't short of material to use for the zombie drama which starts its fifth season this Fall.
In fact, David Alpert revealed at a recent Producers Guild event that those working on the show have roughly mapped out the series far beyond the upcoming new season.
"I happen to love working from source material, specifically because we have a pretty good idea of what season 10 is gonna be. We know where season 11 and 12... we have benchmarks and milestones for those seasons if we're lucky enough to get there."
The show itself has diverged from the comic at times, but this would indicate things like the villain Negan and the camp of Alexandria will come into play shortly.
