Have You Ever Wanted See a Naked Zombie on The Walking Dead? Well, You're in Luck

Greg Nicotero says there's a "fully nude walker" coming up

The Walking Dead has always been graphic. It pushes the boundaries of violence that can be shown on basic cable TV. It's allowed to say the F-word sometimes. And in the back half Season 8, it's going to break another barrier when it shows its first zombie in its birthday suit. (Or would that be a deathday suit?)

"There's an episode where we did our first fully nude walker," executive producer Greg Nicotero told Entertainment Weekly. "We've never done that before."

Do you want to see that? No? Well, too bad, you're getting it anyway. Nicotero didn't say whether the naked zombie will be male or female or whether we'd be getting a full-frontal nude scene, so that'll be a fun surprise when it happens. I personally hope it's a male walker. Like Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke, I believe in nude scene equality. And also, I'm just curious about what a zombie's penis looks like, don't @ me.

And what if it's a naked male zombie but he got his genitals ripped off while roaming around nude in the wilderness and we're going to see his disgusting, mutilated crotchal region? That's exactly that kind of gross thing this twisted show would do!

The Walking Dead is oddly squeamish about showing nudity, though. Andrew Lincoln had to wear boxers for what should have been in a nude scene in Season 8A. So maybe it'll just be a tasteful rear-only nude scene. But I hope not. I wanna see some zombenis!

The Naked Dead -- sorry, The Walking Dead returns Sunday, Feb. 25 at 9/8c on AMC.
