Showrunner Teases Impact of Nuclear Blast On TWD Universe
Appearing on The Talking Dead podcast, showrunner Andrew Chambliss assured that the nuclear blast during the season 6 finale wILL have severe repercussions for the whole TWD Universe, not just Fear The Walking Dead. Further, Chambliss teased that the nuclear blast is a big enough event to change the TWD Universe fundamentally. In addition, he acknowledged that the explosion would indeed send shock waves beyond Texas and the show’s characters.
Indeed the nuclear blast during the last season will have a significant impact on the TWD universe. Even when the original series is set years ahead of Fear The Walking Dead, a big event like this may not go unnoticed in the storylines of the other Walking Dead shows. Moreover, TWD’s Chief Content Officer, Scott Gimple, shared his views about how the franchise will adopt the nuclear explosion scenario. Scott said that some characters are aware of the blast while others are not, and there are several ways to adapt to the explosion scene in the story. Further, he added that the characters lead the show focusing on how things affect those characters.
The characters define the mythology and not the other way round. Therefore, the show with different timelines can introduce the nuclear explosion through certain common factions like the Civic Republic Military (CRM). We’ve already seen the presence of CRM in all three Walking Dead shows. Therefore, it’s a strong possibility that CRM will spread the nuclear explosion events of Fear The Walking Dead across other series’.
