ATLANTA-In celebration of being picked up for a 6th season of hacking and slashing their way through a stricken Atlanta’s zombies, the show runners of The Walking Dead rented Earth’s moon and dyed it red for tonight’s eclipse. The show’s creator is quick to deny that they arranged the eclipse as well, however.
“We felt the blood moon exemplified our success,” said Robert Kirkman, show creator. “It was expensive to rent the whole thing and dye it red. But no, we didn’t do the eclipse. That would have been prohibitively costly, even for us.”
The show will continue to be filmed in and around Atlanta.
