TWD Season 2 speculation/suggestion (merged threads)

posted by Yusuf Koroma on - last edited - Viewed by 23.4K users

In the coming months, Telltale Games will release three more episodes of their adventure game The Walking Dead. They won't stop there, though. Telltale marketing executive Steve Allison said that they will create a second season eventually as well.

"Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do," Allison told Polygon.

The Walking Dead has been a huge critical and commercial success for Telltale. The first episode, "A New Day," sold almost 1.7 million copies in its first two months. It's said to be the company's fastest-selling game ever.

The game starts before the events of the Walking Dead show and comic. Lee Everett, a man convicted of murder, has been unexpectedly free as a zombie outbreak sweeps the globe. He and a small group of survivors band together in order to stay alive. As Lee, players must endure zombie attacks as well as internal strife among the survivors.

It's not clear whether the second season of the game will be a direct continuation of the first season. They might just decide to tell a new story with a completely different cast of characters. I'd be happy with either. The writing for these games has proven top-notch so I have faith that Telltale could craft another compelling set of survivors for us to follow.

Episode 3 of Walking Dead will be available in August. "Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do."

    Why am I always singled out?

    After watching the walking dead last night. I think it might have been a mistake to cast Lee off so early. I know it made for an emotional gut wrenching series. In the show the lead (Rick) lives on.

    My thinking they wanted an epic close. Yet they'll have to make a brand new cast or bring in older ones. The lead who played in the online game. Had great voice acting done. He was emotionally engaged. I felt he could have easily fit in for Season 2.

    The girl he was watching over, could have been older in series. In the TV series their relationships mature over time. Not everyone dies, and you become more emotionally connected to them after learning more about them.

    I have mixed feelings with starting off with a brand new cast we know nothing about. But I hope they're successful in their attempts to tell a story.

  • I think the two best options for continuation in season 2 would be;

    1. Taking off right from the ending, allowing us instant gratification with the cliffhanger ending

    or

    2. If they bring in a new cast I would love for them to throw us in the new cast prior to the events in Episode 5 so we build on the characters in the new group and bond with them and maybe at the end of episode 1 of season 2 have it crossover with the ending from season 1. That way when it all comes together you'll be all like, "Oh man!" and you'll see it coming and flip out haha.

    Anyway, I'm really excited. I just think that Clem as a teenager is a little too obvious and you'd lose a whole lot of the character that has been built.

  • I don't think the second season will be a direct sequel to Clementine's tale, but I'm pretty sure we'll see her again - and some other characters from the first season, such as Lily and Kenny (no body, no death - those who read the comic will remember that time with Tyreese in the prison gym).

  • I posted this in another thread, but here's my speculation:

    I think the Shadows weren't Omid and Christa, but the new protagonist and a companion from the beginning of Season 2, and they stumble upon Clem, who relates her story (and remembers everything my Lee taught her).

    I think that Omid and Christa did make it back to the train and holed up in the boxcar for a while to regroup (I sent them there rather than the fruitless endeavor of trying to find a boat), but once no one met them there they decided to make their own way. I think we'll meet up with them sometime during Season 2, but I don't think it'll be right off.

    Molly may make another appearance. Now that she knows there's nothing in Crawford, she'll keep sneaking in for supplies for a while, but that'll run out eventually and she'll have to make a move too. But she's flighty, she'll leave again - I don't see her as being a major part of Season 2.

    So far as Vernon goes - they deserve to starve out in the Gulf of Mexico for leaving us high and dry like that. Yeah, I know, I'm mean.

    As for Kenny... that's hard. I would LOVE, however, to see him turn up, covered from head to toe in Walker blood. It's unlikely, and after everything he's gone through he may not have the will to live anymore, but maybe he made it through.

    I agree with some of the others: if I didn't see a corpse, there's a chance that person made it. If I did see a corpse but that corpse didn't have it's head bashed in or brains blown out, there's a chance we'll see them as a walker. I didn't have Clem shoot Lee, so there's a walker Lee chained to a radiator in my world. I think I'd feel bad if I have to bash in Lee's brains in Season 2, but you have to do what you have to do to try to survive.

    I hope beyond hope that the new protagonist is as likeable as Lee. The way I played Lee was that he had demons in his past but he was a good person and had regrets. And besides, once the Zombie apocalypse started, the past kind of stayed in the past (although I got my butt chewed a few times for getting caught in lies). I would like to see the new protagonist as just another average person caught in this and learning the skills needed to survive based on the world they now exist in. I don't want it to be a current character, because I don't want an established character's back story (and the experiences they had with me as Lee) to affect the choices I make.

  • Cmon nobody have any more ideas :(

  • The new character and Bens good twin (Aha Ben is the evil twin). Your guy is chatting going "Hey so your looking for your Bro... man he sounds like a doosh" Then you see Clem. Run down the hill towards her, she panics and her gun goes off shooting her foot. Your character then carries her to camp and then DUDUM openning credits for season ROLE. Time skip with cut scene of your character explaining his backstory. Then check up on Clem who is ALIVE... introduces a limping Clem (more the shock. Just a flesh wound) to the group.

    Beginning idea

    If Clem accidentally shot herself, my Lee would turn in his grave. No way is Clem THAT stupid. Ben maybe, but never Clem.

    Anyway i wonder if our choices in series 1 affect a whole new range of characters in season 2. For example if you left the brothers alive in season 1, in season 2 they kill at least one of the new characters looking after Clem. Just an idea

    Was more thinking an accident in her hands she shoots herself in shock. It could happen to anyone, especially a 9 year old who has only held a gun for a few days. I think the St Johns are dead no matter what. Danny was in a bear trap surrounded by walkers. Andy had the living shit kicked out of him #BadassLee So I think all badies are gone. Maybe Lily had a complete mental breakdown and is now a serial killer.

  • Hay Telltale, I think we have found another writer, that was very good I could see that working, the music does fit somewhat, nice job I honestly can not write that well.
