The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has offered words in defense of the decision to kill Carl in season eight, saying how he had some ‘trepidation’.

The show took a controversial turn in the midseason finale, revealing Carl was bitten by a walker with his confirmed death set to pan out in the show’s next episode.

It’s resulted in some fan backlash and concerns over the show’s future, something which creator Robert Kirkman reveals was similarly on his mind when showrunner Scott Gimple proposed the idea.
