Bear McCreary is behind the spooky introduction music on The Walking Dead. Furthermore, he wanted it to be that remarkably horrid from the beginning. In a 2010 interview, he disclosed that he needed to catch a feeling of “emptiness” with the stringed notes of his opening number. As it is, this is precisely the feeling he got from viewing the introduction for the show. Mission fulfilled.
4. Frank Darabont’s Sudden Farewell
To start with, AMC’s The Walking Dead had Frank Darabont’s fingerprints all over it, both elaborately and with his pick of unique cast like Melissa McBride, Laurie Holden, and Jeffrey DuMunn with whom he had worked with some time recently. However, in an astounding decision, Darabont was ousted from the second season, regardless of the show’s initial achievement. AMC, which was handling money related issues with the makers on Mad Men and Breaking Bad at the time, chose to cut its budget plan on The Walking Dead and expel Darabont over creative and administrative differences.
