Frank Darabont's The Walking Dead was one of the best things about last year's TV season and the second series, to air this autumn, is hotly anticipated. Last weekend an internet rumour started that novelist, Stephen King will write an episode for the second season and within hours the rumour went viral.
The rumour is now fact and Stephen King himself has confirmed that he will indeed be writing at least one episode of the new season. King's episodes will be co-written with the author's son, Joe Hill who is himself an accomplished novelist.
King is no stranger to television. In addition to having several of his prose stories turned into TV series, he’s also written original works such as “Storm of the Century” as well as episodes of “The X-Files” and “Tales From The Dark Side.”
