How AMC Brought Winter to The Walking Dead Season Finale
Hint: They couldn't exactly just wait for some cold weather to come around.

The season finale of The Walking Dead was a sight to behold. Not so much for any ground-breaking events or major narrative breakthroughs, but rather due to the fact that it did something it had never done before: brought winter to a series that has largely been dominated by a hot, summer Georgia landscape. AMC has released a new behind-the-scenes video diving into how the team brought a little taste of the north to the otherwise mild climate of where the show is filmed.
This featurette is a solid look at a little movie magic in action, showing how various scenes were put together in the studio to create a stage that looked perfectly wintery once put in camera. The video also dives into how the walkers were able to attack from the snow during these shoots to create one of the more dangerous-looking winter wonderlands we have ever seen.
It was a solid episode that was executed to perfection, especially considering all the work that went into creating these impressive visuals. The series may have wrapped up for the season, but it was certainly worth taking a look behind-the-scenes at this episode one more time before putting this show to rest until later this year when it returns for Season 10.
