In an interesting development on Sunday a connection between The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad was confirmed. A fan theory suggesting a Walking Dead and the Breaking Bad to exist in the same universe had caught some eyes last year. Now AMC has confirmed the theory implying that both TV shows have a strong connection.
Although AMC has confirmed the theory there were also some subtle hints laid out in the latest episode of the spinoff Fear The Walking Dead. The connection was used using the same tone which was used in the series two of Breaking Bad. Digital Spy in an interview with the latest episode’s show runner, Dave Erickson, asked about the Easter egg. Erickson regarding the issue said that
“I tried to be subtle with it, that was probably the moment when I fell the most deeply in love with Breaking Bad, when they did that cold open music video.” He further added that “As we were looking for pieces to incorporate into this world, it had the right vibe to it. It’s a gentle nod of admiration and adoration to [Breaking Bad creator] Vince Gilligan.”
The TV show industry recently has seen a lot of competition. TV show producers now are coming with new and innovative ways to market and distinguish their products. A common trend that has emerged is the amalgamation of two or more shows into one.The possibility of different universes combine, gives a strong sensation to human brain making it excited and curious at the same time.
The signs were always there but still its a bit of a shock to find out that The Walking dead and breaking Bad are set in the same universe. hey maybe Walter did make some sort of Meth which turned people into zombies , who knows?
