Go Behind the Scenes of the Epic Blizzard in The Walking Dead Season 9 Finale

Caution: Falling ice and rising walkers.

In the Season 9 Finale of The Walking Dead, another iconic part of Robert Kirman’s comics comes to life on the screen.

“This is something that we’ve been wanting to do since Season 1,” says Executive Producer Scott M. Gimple in a new behind-the-scenes video.

The Making of the Season 9 Finale 

The crew could have pulled the snowy set off with the help of green screens, but chose to go old school.

Instead, they used giant snow machines on a big stage, which proved to be much more realistic.

And more fun.

“Over the last few days, you can even see the cast and crew starting to feel colder,” notes Christian Agypt, Unit Production Manager

“You kind of get the feeling that it’s real… even though I’m pretty sure it’s just paper,” jokes Khary Payton.
