AMC has released a few new images from the highly anticipated fifth season of The Walking Dead. They feature Rick, Glenn, Daryl, Tyreese, and Carol all looking determined to survive in the god-forsaken world that they are living in.
Steven Yeun (Glenn) recently did an interview with e!online about the upcoming season and his character, saying:
"I remember a couple of scenes I would look over at what was going on in the scene and I would be like, ‘What the eff? What are we doing? How is this legal? It's grounded and real, too; it's not like torture or gore for no reason. It's literally, that is what would happen and we are trying to show it. It would not work on network television, let me tell you that."
When asked about his character possibly being killed off he paused and said:
"Ugh, I mean, sometimes it's rough, I mean sometimes its awesome. We will see what happens, yeah."
I really hope they don't kill off Glenn, he's one of my favorite characters. In a separate interview with EW, creator Robert Kirkman talked about what is coming:
"In our first episode, it’s very much going to focus on the story of Terminus. There’s a lot of big revelations that haven’t really come out that I think people are gonna be pretty startled by. There’s a couple other revelations that I think people might’ve gotten a little bit of a lead on. We’ll definitely be defining those in some cool ways and confirming some theories and shooting down others, which is very exciting. But I think the coolest thing about coming back to season 5 is that we really hit the ground running. What I mean by that is that we very quickly deal with the situation that we left them in — this trapped, victim situation where they’re kind of at the mercy of the people of Terminus. We really kind of expand the story from there very rapidly, so I think this is going to be a pretty fast-paced season with quite a bit going on. News is already out that Seth Gilliam has been added, and we’re bringing in new characters like we always do, and I think season 5 is going to be our best season yet. I think when people finally see the premiere, they’ll see what I’m talking about."
He goes on to say that this is their best season yet, which is always a good thing to hear from the guy who started this horrific journey.
