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?

  • Should be a totally different group. Maybe a crossover like seeing the train drive by or something.
  • If TT was going to make a new group for the next season, they would rather call it "SERIES" 2 rather than "season" 2.
  • Im not sure at all :)

    except they never make any games that say "series 2" all of their games have been seasons.
  • I really do hope its a whole new group. Because it's better to play with new characters and see their side of the story

    Me too. It seems to me that TT prefers to create new settings and characters instead of rehashing old ideas, so I'd personally bet on a new group being introduced for S2.

    If i remember correctly, they have only made one game series that has had multiple "season" titles(Sam & Max) and each of those feature the same titular protagonists.
  • I'm hoping that it'd be with a new group, just so they can do so much more with it, bring in things they decided not to do with Lee's story, or different elements based on the feedback from the fans
