- Season Four of The Walking Dead ended with Rick and the group outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate. Season Five picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive. Stories will break apart and intersect. The characters will find love and hate. Peace and conflict. Contentment and terror. And, in the quest to find a permanent, safe place to call home, one question will haunt them… After all they’ve seen, all they’ve done, all they’ve sacrificed, lost, and held onto no matter what the cost… Who do they become?
Atlanta, GA (July 2, 2014)
‘The Walking Dead’ stars Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride get busy on set, Reedus and his loyal Bow and Arrow gave our shutterbug the thumbs up in between scenes while Melissa concentrated on her lines.
Here the pictures!
The Walking Dead is well into filming on season 5 of the apocalyptic zombie drama, so we figured it was time to check in and see how things were going down on the Georgia set. We dialed up our main man Norman Reedus to get a feel for the vibe down there, and Reedus is definitely pumped about what has transpired so far. “These scripts are the best scripts so far, and I’m really just excited to be back at it,” says the man who plays Daryl Dixon. “There are a lot of characters right now, so there are a lot of really different personalities on set. And it’s super interesting, everyone’s really bringing it. It’s going great. It’s so dynamic because it’s so fast-paced and so complicated. It’s great to be back.”
When Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), Dr. Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt), and Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos) were introduced in Season 4 of The Walking Dead we knew there was plenty of “cure” talk in our future. Although the television show doesn’t follow Robert Kirkman’s comics to a T, we quickly knew that, like his comic book counterpart, TV Eugene would claim to have knowledge of a cure in Washington D.C. and Abraham would make it his mission to get him there.
Yesterday, Norman Reedus posted a photo to Instagram of himself having a meal with Michael Rooker, who played Daryl Dixon’s dearly departed brother Merle on The Walking Dead. Of course, since Norman Reedus is currently filming Season 5 of The Walking Dead in Georgia, the photo set off a wave of speculation over why Reedus and Rooker were dining together.
It is about that time when actors for The Walking Dead are reassembling back in Atlanta to begin work on season 5 of the AMC zombie drama. With that in mind, we caught up with Daryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus, recently and asked how much creator Robert Kirkman and showrunner Scott M. Gimple had told him about what to expect coming up. “A bit,” says Reedus. “Those guys are very good at telling you a bunch of stuff, and you sit there for an hour and you walk away and go, ‘What the hell did he just say? What’s going on?’ They’re very good at masking what they want to tell you.” (As someone that has interviewed both men several times, I can certainly attest to that.)
