The Walking Dead Creator Reveals Source of Walker Virus

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman recently revealed the official source of the walker virus that started the zombie apocalypse. The answer came via a tweet to a fan wondering what started the outbreak. The answer is surprisingly… underwhelming. It’s probably something you’ve thought about once or twice before. Check it out below.


Yup, that’s it folks. Space spore. Kirkman is known to be a troll online, but didn’t provide any follow up to the tweet as to whether he is serious or not. Kirkman has never focused his story on the actual origin of the apocolypse. And in hindsight, it probably doesn’t really matter. The story was always about the characters. But if you felt like you needed to know, now you do.

What do you think about this big reveal? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.

The Walking Dead Season 10 returns for Episode 9 on Feb. 23 on AMC at 9PM EST.
