After the cliffhanger ending of Season Six, it seemed an awfully long wait for the return of The Walking Dead. With the new season fast approaching, we were excited to hear from the cast as they reveal what they think about returning to the series after such a traumatic ending to the last season, how they feel about Negan, and speculate on what will happen to Rick and the group as the new series starts.
Over the next few days, we’ll share with you some of what the cast can reveal about Season 7 of The Walking Dead.
Today we hear from Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), and Norman Reedus (Daryl).
The Walking Dead’s return is just under a month away, and AMC has just released the Season 7 synopsis.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“Up until this point, our characters have lived through conflicts… Disease, hunger, scores of the undead, tragedy, betrayal, and unthinkable loss. Through this, they’ve become formidable. Powerful. Unstoppable.
Exclusive: Check out these new character photos, as the big question looming over the series nears its answer.
The Walking Dead is back next month for Season 7 and AMC released new character photos for the show.
You won’t have to wait long to see Norman Reedus back on AMC as his new unscripted motorcycle series, Ride with Norman Reedus, debuts June 12 on the network, but you will have to wait another four-and-a-half months to see if Daryl Dixon survived that season 6 cliffhanger of The Walking Dead.
Andrew Lincoln was so distraught, it was the only time he’s ever shown up late for work. Lauren Cohan says she didn’t even want to go to work. Josh McDermitt threw his script across the room.
Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead is as tough as they come, but the actor who plays him, Norman Reedus, reveals he got very emotional while filming a certain scene for Season 6, Episode 15.
The scene in question was one in which Glenn Rhee, Michonne, and Rosita Espinosa are trying to convince Daryl, who has left Alexandria to find and kill Dwight in order to avenge Denise’s death, to come home.
Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus Talks About That Cliffhanger Ending, Teases ‘Most Hardcore Finale Ever’
In the closing seconds of Sunday’s penultimate Season 6 episode, Dwight aimed his pistol at Daryl and pulled the trigger — the blood splatter on the camera lens serving as grim confirmation that the bullet reached its intended target.
But is Daryl dead? We phoned Norman Reedus and kindly asked him to put our minds at ease. Sadly, he only made things worse.
A recurring theme on The Walking Dead this season has been the question of whether to kill. Is it better to shoot first and ensure survival through force, or show mercy and hope that mercy is shown to you in return?
Everyone (outside of Father Gabriel) on The Walking Dead has had their fair share of zombie kills. But Daryl Dixon’s always seem to have an extra flair about them. Maybe it’s the crossbow he has used to pierce so many walker skulls. However, when we asked star Norman Reedus to name his favorite zombie kill ever, the two he picked were completely crossbow-free. And they were both from season 5.
- 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?
