Others set their sights on the greater good." The episode is directed by Magnus Martens on a script from Maya Goldsmith, Ben Sokolowski, and showrunner Matthew Negrete.
After a slow burn season filled with teenage drama, the final two episodes of World Beyond's first season finish the season in a strong manner with a finally interesting hook for the next ten episodes. Following Sunday night's double-header finale, showrunner Matthew Negrete and The Walking Dead chief content officer Scott Gimple will take deep dives into the series and franchise as a whole in exclusive interviews published on ComicBook.com.
"Obviously, I don't want to spoil anything, but the thing I'll say is that it really is going to be an expansion of the world," Negrete said of the show's future. "We're going to be seeing a lot more of a CRM, parts of the CRM you've never even hinted at. We'll get a glimpse, or probably actually more than a glimpse, into how they operate, what their modus operandi is." The full interview will be available after tonight's episodes, so be sure to check back in to ComicBook.com/TheWalkingDead!
The Walking Dead: World Beyond will go into production for its second and final season in early 2021. Fear the Walking Dead will return for the back half of its sixth season following The Walking Dead Season 10C, which begins airing its 6 new episodes in February.
