The Walking Dead Season 3 features Clementine, will tie in with comics

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has dropped some quality hints about the third season of Telltale’s adventure series based on his transmedia baby.

“Season 3 of the Telltale series is really exciting to me,” Kirkman said in a video interview with IGN.

“The way that the timeline works, Season 3 will actually be getting pretty close to where we are in the comics currently – the books that are coming out now are roughly in the same timeframe that Season 3 will be in.

“There’s a lot of really cool, really exciting things coming that I don’t think people will expect. We’ll be checking in on Clementine again, so we’ll be seeing her, we’ll be seeing where she’s at, what’s going on with her, which is gonna be great.

“But also, similar to the Michonne series, I think there will probably be some more comic book elements that’ll be working in, in some interesting ways. I don’t wanna reveal too much, but [it] will definitely go hand-in-hand with the comic a little bit more than Season 2 did.”

The full interview is mostly focused on The Walking Dead: Michonne, as Kirkman explains why he was so enthusiastic about having Telltale explore an untold story from the comics. It’s pretty interesting, so if you’re a fan of the franchise beyond Telltale’s games be sure to check it out.

The third and final episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne releases this week.
