Robert Kirkman Talks THE WALKING DEAD Season 2, 3, Who Dies And Series Ending

In  recent interview with E! News THE WALKING DEAD creator Robert Kirkman talked about having 13 episodes for season two compared to the 6 for season one. He told them this;
"It is no problem at all to me, just because coming from comics I'm used to producing—for The Walking Dead I produce 12 comics a year and then I do three or four other comics on top of that. I guess it's somewhat daunting but I'm not even writing this stuff by myself. So it seems like it's a little bit easier."
Kirkman also talked about if they already had an ending planned for the show;
"Yeah, it's something we've discussed briefly. I would like to do the comic book for 15 more years or so—in comic books that's completely normal, not completely unheard of, but it's kind of unheard of for a show like this to go so much as 10 years. So there's definitely going to have to be an end to this but while we have discussed it here and there briefly, we haven't really nailed down an exact end date just yet. We're going into our second season now, so I think it's normal just to look ahead and be a little optimistic and see where things are going to take us."
He was asked if all of the "key actors" are safe;
 "I don't want to spoil anything but I'm hoping that the television show will quickly gain the same reputation that the comic book has for being fairly bold and playing like no one is safe. So it may be a pretty exciting second season"
Kirkman was also asked if the prison (from the comics) would come into the picture;
"Possibly. I think that's something that has been discussed but I wouldn't want to nail things down exactly. We want to keep some surprise out there. I can say that the prison is definitely in the cards chronologically. It might make sense for that to possibly appear in season three. Who knows?"
 On who he'd have play the Governor;
"Ed O'Neill. He's my go-to because he's one of my favorite actors and I'd like to meet him—but I don't know if he's be a particular good Governor. It's a good thing I don't make casting decisions just by myself because I'd probably just pick people I want to hang out with: Ed O'Neil, maybe John Stamos—he seems like a cool guy."
Well, I think Ed O'neil is kind of busy these days with Modern Family so that might be out, don't know about Stamos but I'm always up for a role Mr. Kirkman! Hint-Hint!
