You may recall that Walking Dead character deaths have spoiled by AMC before, most memorably in their listings for a DVD and Blu-ray set. It seems like they haven't learned their lesson.
There's a new press release from AMC doing the rounds today, heralding the casting of Walking Dead's Governor, David Morrissey, in the new show Line of Sight:
We are huge fans of David Morrissey and are glad he'll be doing double duty for AMC viewers through his work on The Walking Dead and our pilot for Line of Sight, both of which are produced in Atlanta.
Okay, he'll do double duty for one show and one pilot… but if that pilot goes to series? I think The Governor is on the way out.
You know, casting notices are pretty telling in situations like this. The self same spoiler that popped up in those DVD listings was first hinted at by a bit of casting.
I guess casting announcements are to Walking Dead deaths as Lego sets are to superhero movie action sequence spoilers.
Oh, and you're right – the image at the head of this post has nothing to do with the content. Better than the SPOILER sign, though.
