King confirmed the possibility to Entertainment Weekly, saying that executive producer Frank Darabont "has expressed enthusiastic interest for season 2 or possibly 3."

Darabont directed three films based on King's work, including Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and The Mist. Having collaborated on two prison-set films, it would only make sense for King to write for the series just as they're getting to the prison from the comics. Just us?
