The Walking Dead - Glen Mazzara Talks Darabont's Premiere Idea And More

The Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara on Saturday clarified why the AMC zombie drama opted not to move forward with an unproduced Season 2 premiere that was the brainchild of ousted showrunner Frank Darabont.

The one-off episode, which Darabont explained in a recent letter to Aint It Cool, would have revolved around an Army Ranger fighting the against the zombie apocalypse in the early days of the outbreak. Darabont, who shepherded Walking Dead to the screen for the network before being ousted last year, said the documentary-style episode would have offered a back story to the zombie Rick (Andrew Lincoln) encounters in an Atlanta tank in the show's pilot and provided a glimpse of the world in the early days of the attack.

"Internally, we don't know where the zombie outbreak started, how to cure it, anything like that," show runner Glen Mazzara told TheWrap. "We haven't really discussed it. We're more interested in the continuing storylines."
