‘The Walking Dead’ creator Robert Kirkman has denied a popular fan theory surrounding ‘The Walking Dead.’
The writer responded to fan speculation about Rick Grimes still being in a coma and the events with the zombies were part of a big dream that Grimes was having.
“Going on record to answer this,” Kirkman tweeted. “Rick is NOT still in a coma. The events of TWD are definitely happening.”
Kirkman also joked with his Twitter followers over the existence of other Walking Dead characters, ending his tweet with “#joking?”.
