Furthermore, Kang confirmed the writers are more likely to get in trouble for bad language than the show’s gore and violence.
“We’re a little more prudish about language than violence [in the United States], if that tells you anything.
“So they tend to be like, ‘You have too many curse words. Can you cut a little bit?’. But we’re pretty good at self-regulating as needed.”
While The Walking Dead has never veered into kid-friendly territory over 11 seasons, there are still millions of viewers who have yet to be put off by the show’s grim subject matter.
The Walking Dead season 11 continues Sundays on AMC and Star on Disney+.
