The Walking Dead Season 6 spoilers promise an escalation in action, conflict, tension and of course death! Season 5 of The Walking Dead came to a wrap this Sunday, leaving behind a Walking Dead-sized hole in all our hearts. Sure, nobody major died [that we know of[, and Morgan [Lennie Jones] made a triumphant return to the show. However, we also have to wait another half a year for the show to return, with only minor spoilers to keep us company until the return date.
The producers and writers have already started working on The Walking Dead Season 6, and according to executive producer Gale Ann Hurd, Season 6 is shaping up to be even more action-packed than Season 5. She explained some of the spoilers, adding, “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 also added his own two cents, explaining, “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.”
The Walking Dead will now shift its focus to the villainous group known as The Saviors, and of course, the Wolves that this finale touched upon. That means that whether we like it or not, Negan is coming. So even though Season 5 didn’t end with any major character deaths, don’t expect that trend to continue once Negan and The Saviors finally make their appearance.
Right now, Season 6 of The Walking Dead isn’t expected to premiere until October of 2015. What do you guys think about The Walking Dead spoilers for Season 6? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
