Is The Walking Dead’s second season in jeopardy?

The show’s head honcho reckons a budget cut would ruin the series

Talking at a Hollywood Reporter round-table, writer/director Frank Darabont of zombilicious TV series The Walking Dead hinted that the budget for Season Two of his smash hit may get cut, undermining the lavish show which depicts the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse in visceral detail.

“Creatively I have no complaints thus far”, he said. “But I believe if they do move ahead with what they’re talking about, it will affect the show creatively … in a negative way. Which just strikes me as odd. If you have an asset, why would you punish it?”
