The production staff includes Kirkman, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero, Gale Anne Hurd, Scott M. Gimple, Andrew Chambliss and Ian B. Goldberg, and Chambliss and Goldberg for the third straight season.

What’s going to happen?
Work started in Texas in November 2019. Development for the sixth season was shut down in March 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Before the shutdown, the series had nearly ended production in the first half of the season, and the showrunner Andrew Chambliss stated that every script for the sixth season had been written. Production was confirmed to have resumed in late August 2020.
Showrunner Ian Goldberg said that the sixth season will take on an “anthology-style” where episodes would concentrate on individual characters or sets of characters, compared to past episodes like “Laura” season 4. Goldberg also described it as a “darker season.”
Cast member Lennie James rendered his directorial debut this series and was coached by fellow actor Colman Domingo who had previously directed episodes for the series; Domingo also produced his third episode of the series this season.
