"We're proud of this finale, we've been building to it all season, and we can't wait for you to see it," he told Entertainment Weekly.

"There's more bloodshed coming. They thought they were safe on this farm, they were wrong. We're on a killing spree here."

On what to expect in the finale, he said: "There are answers about the nature of the virus in the finale. I will guarantee people will watch this finale and want to know what comes next. People will have a lot of questions, but in a good way."

When asked how Shane turned into a zombie very quickly despite not being bitten by a walker, he explained: "We worked hard to make sure that revelation landed. We knew what we were doing there. We knew it would land a punch.

"We've never had a main character become a zombie to this extent. Those [rapid flashes of zombie mayhem] represent the storm in Shane's brain to some extent. Amy was a weaker character.

"Shane is in a murderous rage, he's going to reanimate quicker. There's just more life in that zombie, believe it or not. We do have internal rules for that."

Speaking about some fans urging for the death of Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), he added: "If it's earned and character-based and propels the story forward, nothing is over the line for us. No-one is safe on this show."

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman had previously hinted at further character departures in the finale.

The Walking Dead's second season concludes on Sunday (March 18) at 9/8c on AMC. In the UK, the show airs on Fridays at 10pm on FX.
