TWD Season 2 speculation/suggestion (merged threads)

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."

  • I think Season 2 will pick up where Season 1 left off, but you play as Clementine, now that Lee taught you how to protect yourself. The scene after the credits seems to suggest that the two figures in the distance could be Christa and Omid. The 3 of them would be reunited and then try to survive on their own and meet new groups of people to survive with. Either Season 2 will start immediately afterwards, or some time later when Clementine is a little older.

    I think having Season 2 involve a completely new cast will seem a little too disconnected with what transpired in Season 1.
  • I would not mind carrying on the story with Clem.
  • They could start a new story line whole new group of people

    But then people would be stuck with what happen to Clem Clem....
  • They'd have to continue the clementine story because if they don't there would have been no reason to have the after credit scene cliffhanger. It could have ended where Lee died and no after credit scene. Its building it up for the second season. This game is so great at doing that.
  • I'm not trying to tell Telltale that they should make another season but i felt like that the game might not need a second one. I loved the all the episodes and i thought the ending was a bit odd for the choices i made. Meaning that the choices didn't matter in a way. But Why would there need to be a second series for the Game world, Would it start from the beginning of the 'Apocalypse' or would it continue with Clem. Both seen utter ridiculous as another on the forum said are we going to be seeing Clem as a hardened Zombie killer? that just doesn't seem necessary. Also with a new group wouldn't it just be the same game but with slightly different issues? Maybe a new Personality here or there but the first one captured that pretty well (Children, Crazy old people, Psychos and Bandits). It would just be the same game in a different place. It taking place right after the first game with a NEW group of survivors would just be like a weird scavenging/farming game with zombies. the first game seemed to end with a good but confusing ending (were those two silhouettes Omid and Christa or zombies or strangers?). So I'm not telling TTG not to make a second one but where can they really go with it?

    im 100% that it will be a new story without clem but later her story and the story of glen and lily will emerge and your protagonist will meet these people somehow.
    Sorry dude, wont' ever happen. Both are comic characters and won't be meeting anyone else that'll be in the games.
  • I do...but without Kenny, Duck, Doug, Larry, Ben, it just wouldn't feel the same.
  • Yes we need a Season Two. With Clementine, please.
