In July, AMC aired a black and white version of the Walking Dead pilot. The results must have been nice, because word has surfaced that AMC plans to all 18 episodes from season 1 and season 2 in black and white starting in February. Showrunner Glen Mazzara retweeted a fan’s photo of the article from what I believe is The Walking Dead Magazine, so it seems to have his stamp of approval. I hope Mazzara helps oversee the black and white conversion process, although the ideal scenario brings original show creator Frank Darabont back to design the B&W alternate version, as he did for The Mist director’s cut. Regardless, it’s a cool move, and I like to see a hit show experimenting with format like this.
Hit the jump to see the article screencap. Season 3 of The Walking Dead resumes on February 10.
