There's a way around that. It's safe to assume we'd be dealing with new settings and (mostly) a new cast. Nor would Kenny make a habit out of talking about the ugly incidents that happened in the previous game. I think that applies to almost everyone in the WD universe too; who you were or what you did sort of becomes irrelevant after the zombie apocalypse, unless you were such
an evil bastard you couldn't be trusted regardless of what's going on around you.
Any references to Lee in particular, for example, could be kept to a minimum. When asked about Lee, Kenny's responses would still depend on your treatment of his character in the first game, but his dialogue would be left ambiguous (i.e. "he was a better friend than I deserved," or "he and I...had problems").
