The Walking Dead Season 6 spoilers go into detail about what to expect on our favorite zombie apocalypse TV show. The finale of “The Walking Dead’ finally closed out season five on Sunday, but spoilers and buzz surrounding TWD season 6 of TWD are already being shared. Most rumors revolve around Negan and the Saviors, but Morgan’s changes and involvement in season six have been confirmed along with more death courtesy of the Wolves. Warning – Spoilers from the season 5 finale and upcoming season six of ‘The Walking Dead’ are below.
Here are The Walking Dead season 6 spoilers that have been CONFIRMED for season 6 of TWD. Morgan’s Back…For Good? Morgan’s return to the show is just starting. While on ‘The Talking Dead’ finale, Lennie James confirmed some news about his fan-favorite TWD character stating, “I’m allowed to say that I’ll be there for one episode at least.” He also added that Morgan is a different guy than what viewers last saw of him in his appearance in ‘Clear.’ James explained that “something happened” to Morgan that has changed him. What that “something” is, was left to the imagination. Lennie did mention a possible “origins” episode in season six that will explain Morgan’s new spiritual embrace of life.
‘The Walking Dead’ executive producer, Gale Anne Hurd, also underlined this change in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter saying, “Morgan’s story will be interesting because he was clearly a homicidal maniac when we saw him in ‘Clear’ and now he’s transformed into this Zen warrior and someone who is able to survive, who is able to take on multiple people with his fighting staff but he’s not someone who really wants to have to kill anyone.”
It seems, based on current pitches and angles for the upcoming season, Morgan will have a firm role. How he will get along with the “new” Rick will make for interesting story angles.
The Villain of Season 6: The buzz around Negan appearing in the TV version of ‘The Walking Dead’ has been going on for months. It was heated to a boiling point when images of Glenn, clutching a baseball bat, foreshadowed his death. In the graphic novels, Glenn is brutally murdered by Negan and his barbwire-wrapped baseball bat. We will get to more on that below, but showrunner Scott Gimple’s statement the loveable Chris Hardwick read on ‘The Talking Dead’ paints a different picture for the antagonist for season six of ‘The Walking Dead’… “Season 6 for a good while now, humans have been the bigger threat. At the start of our next season, that will change. I said the show reinvents itself every 8 eps, and we’re doing it again, friendos. Now that these characters know they have what it takes to survive, what are they going to do with that power? How will they choose to live? Beyond answering those questions, we’re currently putting into motion some of our most ambitious stuff yet, and things are going to get very big, loud and scary.”
For most, the return to the walkers being a threat would be a huge welcome. Of course, it sounds like it won’t stay that way for long. Note the words – “At the start of our next season…” This means that we probably won’t see the new living villain until closer to the mid-season finale or afterward.
From this point on, we are left to conjecture mixed with hints from the actors and producers. Keep in mind that filming for the show doesn’t usually begin until May, so things can change. Currently, the show is in the final pitching stage.
The Wolves:The Wolves finally made their debut in the final episode of season 6. From their attempt to take out Morgan, trapping Daryl and Aaron, and killing poor Red Poncho Guy, they are clearly the bad guys being teased throughout the season.
When it comes to their involvement in The Walking Dead season six, Hurd was tight-lipped about the Wolves. The Hollywood Reporter and EW both asked about the evil gang, but Gale shut them down stating, “I can’t discuss that.” However, she did tease, “As luck would have it, last week Scott Gimple and his fantastic team of writers pitched out eight episodes of Season 6 and let me tell you, it is going to be quite the rollercoaster. It is really exciting and also caused our line producer to start pulling out his hair.”
Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, also added fuel to the fire telling Hollywood Reporter, “What struck me, that I’ve always been excited about, is we’re coming into the sixth season of this show and it’s the medieval part of The Walking Dead comic, where you realize that there are these isolated communities but don’t really know other ones exist. But they’re all building and forming themselves with their own image. That, to me, is really interesting and when it gets really exciting with all the action. It turns into this insane, near-apocalyptic landscape that we’ve never seen before. That is almost a reimagining and a restart for society and humanity. And that is such a rich thing to tell.“
Most agree that the Wolves are the TV equivalent to the book’s group, the Scavengers. If that is true, these guys are nothing compared to the evil of what follows in the arrival of Negan.
Negan and the Saviors: As promised, we circle back to Negan and the Saviors. In the comics, Negan leads a group of militia-like survivors called the Saviors. They started as part of a large colony, but Negan, taking control, moved his violent group to a heavily fortified factory. They also have several outposts…one close to Alexandria. After Rick’s group defend themselves from an attack from a small group of the Saviors, Negan and his men retaliate killing Abraham and beginning a war.
If there is one lesson we have learned over the run of the TV show version of ‘The Walking Dead’, it’s that the books and show are similar, but run different plots and have various twists. It should also be noted that Negan and his gang would be a sizeable leap from the show’s current pace with books. Will Negan appear in season 6? Possibly, but it’s likely it wouldn’t be until the end of the season. Bank on the appearance of Paul Monroe, aka Jesus, and the Hilltop Colony led by Gregory, before we will see Negan.
What do you think will be the key plot lines in season 6 of ‘The Walking Dead’? Will Negan’s appearance be expedited? Come back to CDL regularly for more The Walking Dead Spoilers, news and rumors.
