We are officially at the end of the road for TellTale's The Walking Dead and the team is bringing back some of the OG writers to send off the series for good. Gary Whitta, esteemed writer from the very first season, will be making his return to TellTale for the final farewell.

TellTale's The Walking Dead has been highly praised for its gritty storyline and intriguing characters. Clementine quickly became a fan favourite, but there was more than just her to love about the series. As for Gary Whitta, he co-wrote the entire storyline and was at the helm for episode 4. He left the series after 400 Days, the game's first DLC, to pursue bigger and better things such as his work on Star Wars Rogue One. But now as the game reaches its final season, he has returned.

Whitta will be resuming his time with The Walking Dead as a story consultant in order to bring Clementine's story to a rightful close. Since he's been with the character from the start, it's fitting that he be brought back to see how she ends. As a character with her own strengths and beloved determination, it will be interesting to see where Whitta and the team take her on her final journal.

This is what Whitta said about his reprisal into TellTale's world in a recent press release:

"Collaborating with Telltale on the first season of Clementine’s journey through the world of The Walking Dead was one of the highlights of my career, so reuniting with them to now bring her story to a close with this final season feels like a homecoming. Clementine has become not just one of the most compelling characters in the Walking Dead pantheon but one of the great video game characters of all time. I hope we’re able to do justice to her and to her millions of fans. This one feels special."
