For those hoping to someday see a flashback to the actual zombie outbreak on The Walking Dead, you may not want to hold your breath - seriously, because then you'd die and become a zombie, right?



Walking Dead Postmortem: Who survived Woodbury? Where do loyalties lie? What's next?



The AMC series has shown few flashbacks to the days after the outbreak, except to see how Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), Shane (Jon Bernthal) and Carl (Chandler Riggs) fled their hometown in hopes of finding refuge in Atlanta, while being forced to leave Rick (Andrew Lincoln) behind at the hospital after he was shot in the opening moments of the series.



But comic creator and series executive producer Robert Kirkman says he won't be covering the actual outbreak. "I don't find that to be interesting at all," he tells TVGuide.com. "In zombie fiction, you see the outbreak, you see the first days and the craziness in almost every other story told in this realm. I'm very proud of the fact that, for the most part, The Walking Dead has skipped over that part."



Do you believe a zombie apocalypse could actually happen? Weigh in!



If you're really dying to know what the zombie outbreak looked like, Kirkman says, "Go watch Zach Snyder's Dawn of the Dead movie to see the early days of this, or Shaun of the Dead does it really well."



Would you ever want to see a flashback to the zombie outbreak? Hit the comments!



The Walking Dead returns Sunday, Feb. 10 at 9/8c on AMC.
