Hollywood, CA, United States (4E) – “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman talked about why they chose to use the term walkers over zombies when he visited the show of “Conan O’Brien.”

Kirkman was interviewed about the matter on the show of O’Brien and he shared that using the word walker or other terms in place of zombie on “The Walking Dead” would make it clear that the audience will be given a sense that those who have been killed then becoming walkers are in a place where zombie fiction does not exist. It has been established in the first seasons of “The Walking Dead” that they did not know what they were up against since most of the surviving was about figuring out how to fight these walkers, lure them away from the safe zones, and avoiding how to become one.

Kirkman continued to reveal that he still calls “TWD” a zombie show and sometimes he mistakenly writes zombies in place of walkers in the script so he has to correct himself immediately. The other terms used in place of walkers are biters, roamers, rotters , bobbers, and many more.

“The Walking Dead” Season 7 midseason finale will be airing this Sunday on AMC and according to reports, someone might die again in the hands of Negan . Rumors have claimed that Judith will be killed off by Negan while others believe that it would be Spencer if the comics will be the basis for “TWD” Season 7A midseason finale.

In the trailer released for “The Walking Dead” Season 7 Episode 8, Negan was seen having dinner with Judith, Carl, and Olivia while Rosita was seen holding a single bullet. Daryll was also seen getting a note and possibly being able to escape from the Saviors.
