Season 2 and Clem

Please try not to make this thread spoilery, I thought about putting it in the spoiler thread but I thought it'll mostly be speculation anyway (and none of us have played Ep. 5).

I've seen a lot of people suggesting that Season 2 will focus on an older Clem (teens, twenties, whatever), and that she'll be shaped by your decisions as Lee. Well, it hit me today that, canon-wise, this isn't really possible.

TWD comics never get that far into the future after the ZA, so Kirkman's universe doesn't have any basis for what the future would look like. It's all still up in the air... will humans rebuild? Will zombies die out? Total apocalypse scenario? There's nothing to go on. If the game is going to remain canon with the comics, it can't go very far into the future, for now, because it would restrict whatever Kirkman writes after the fact.

So, logically, Season 2 will either be:
- Set directly after Season 1, with Clem et al
- With a new group of people, either directly after the events of Season 1 or at the onset of the ZA, just like the comics and Season 1.

But definitely not with an older Clem, unless it breaks canon... and who wants that?

  • I'm also hoping for a new group. Also, maybe a new area of the country? Not every Walking Dead story needs to be set in Georgia. There would be opportunities for completely different zombie scenarios if it took place in New York or DC or California.

    Georgia all the way. Somehow, It always gives that zombie feel... New york... Eh.. Not that much of a zombie feel. More like a stripper feel.

    Except that both Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead (original) were filmed near Pittsburgh...

    Which, of course, is not New York. It wouldn't be the Walking Dead without Georgia!

  • I would love to see a different scenario with the outbreak in a city. Cities are overrun quickly but where a lot of people are, there is always space for survivers to endure for a long time. And there are so many new ideas that could be put into that. From communications between the upper levels of "surviving" skyscrapers that use helicopters for salvaging to penthouse owners that are able to survive on their own for a long time, maybe some old guy that didn't really notice the outbreak days after it happened because he more or less waits for death in his small room, where he lives socially isolated and where the survivers find him, see what the police/militäry tried to stop outbreak - maybe some altruistic moves those guys tried to protect the people (well maybe one of the cars in the beginning of season 1 is seen again at start of season 2, just in different direction?), etc etc.

    The most interesting thing that's been said about season two is the IGN video review of episode 5 of season one (I'd recommend not watching it though until after you played episode 5, it's really spoilery) that at the end said to stay tuned for season two and to save your season one save files. That seems to suggest that season two will follow at least some of the group from season one (assuming IGN has been told something about season two and isn't just making speculation themselves, which is entirely possible).
