Stephen King may be on board for the 2nd season of Walking Dead

At the Walking Dead panel at this past weekend's C2E2 comics-and-other-geekery convention in Chicago, one of the undead hit's stars let slip that the horror luminary might be saddling up for a tour in zombieland.

While fielding a question about whether executive producer Frank Darabont would be directing the second season's premiere—the answer was no, by the by—Laurie Holden shifted giddily in her seat (at around 10:45) and said:

"I heard a rumor that Stephen King's gonna write one."

Now, that is still, as Holden states right up front, a rumor. But, it's a rumor from The Walking Dead's inner circle. And Darabont and King have a very long history together—The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and The Mist—so another collaboration wouldn't at all be out of the realm of possibility.

We're not gonna call too much attention to the fact that WE TOTALLY CALLED THIS back in December. (But we did.)
