'The Walking Dead' Season 7 Production Fighting Spoiler Drones

Nick Younker

The Walking Dead producers have had to fight spoilers from being leaked on many different fronts, which includes fans flying drones over the production set for Season 7 of the powerhouse AMC horror-drama series.

With that in mind, The Walking Dead producers have had to go to great lengths to throw off the spoiler drones that have been hovering all over the sets in Georgia, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"With the advent of drones, it can become such a game of cat and mouse that as far as sneaking a peek at the actors walking to set, we want to just keep our actors safe and the people who might be looking safe — like [when they're] in the street," TWD showrunner Scott Gimple told The Hollywood Reporter.

This new technique for filming Season 7 of The Walking Dead may be somewhat effective in the beginning, but Walking Dead fans are resilient and will likely adapt to the situation by finding other ways of providing spoilers to TWD fans. Viewers should remember that these are the same fans that have been able to figure out just about every secret and spoiler that The Walking Dead hangs their fans out with from episode to episode, and season to season.

The main spoiler that every fan, and drone, wants revealed is to uncover who died on the Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead. The only thing that is truly known for sure at this point is that the death of a "core" TWD character has happened, but no one knows who it is. Speculation is abound regarding the incident and every major social networking website has been inundated with theories and speculation as to who it was.

When those questions cannot get an immediate resolution, The Walking Dead fans cling to the next best thing, which are media interviews. Fans are hoping that someone, somewhere, will mess up and give away a small detail that will force down the spoiler house of cards. But, so far, that hasn't happened for Walking Dead fans.

The next thing they do is try to invade the production sets for The Walking Dead Season 7. This happens in the most intrusive ways, but also in other ways where the legality lines get blurred. Drones have been sighted on the production set for Season 7 of The Walking Dead. Although they are looking for a specific kill scene, they are doing so in a way that The Walking Dead producers have not been able to stop them.

This is the best way for producers of The Walking Dead to take the wind out of the spoiler wings and give them less credibility. It would also be important for the production team to make sure that every possible news outlet reports on their new anti-spoiler filming technique, which would make any spoilers that may emerge seem less authentic and keep the Season 7 premiere on top of the ratings.
