By now, any fan of The Walking Dead series knows that there is no escaping the disease of becoming one of the Walkers. Whether you’re bitten by one of them or die… you will turn into one of the things you hate most. But is there ever going to be a cure?
With ever zombie story, they go about it a different way. Sometimes there’s a cure for an infectious disease while others just have to keep killing. We’ve often wondered if there would be a final resting point for the characters of The Walking Dead, in which they no longer have to run and fight off the Walkers. During a panel at Comic-Con, a fan asked Robert Kirkman if there was ever a chance that a character would be immune or that a cure would be found to end this continuous madness. The answer… no.
According to Joblo, Kirkman stated:
“No and no,” Kirkman responded, adding that he thinks it would ruin the mystique of the show to introduce a cure or immunity. He also said he liked that these are characters who would not go looking for a cure (though of course they did at the very beginning); they’re stuck with this situation and just have to deal with it.
Honestly, I always thought there would be a cure at some point. I often envisioned the series ending with them find a cure and finally at peace. I guess I was living in Lala land though because that’s not happening. The thought of them always having to face another Walker, another bad group of people, another death… is hauntingly depressing. I guess there’s no rest for the wicked.
