It has only been a few weeks since season 5 of “The Walking Dead” has ended but everyone wants to know what they can expect in season 6. The creator, Robert Kirkman was at the National Association of Broadcasters Show to discuss season finale and where the show might be heading, especially regarding a key dynamic between two characters.
Note: Spoilers Ahead!!
The season 5 finale saw a reunion fans have been awaiting for years. Rick and Morgan found each other in the seemingly safe city but in a precarious situation. Kirkman said,
“Having Rick and Morgan together, finally, again is a huge deal, and it’s definitely going to be a big part of Season 6. Now it’s a very different Rick and a very different Morgan who are going to have a completely different relationship,” Kirkman continued. “And it’s the questions of how they’re going to interact, how they’re going to work together—if they’re going to work together—and what comes from those interactions is going to be basically the spine of season six.”
Steven Yeun, the actor who plays Glenn, was also present at the panel and spoke about his character’s fate in the upcoming season in the most vague way possibly.
“If I go—that could happen,” Yeun commented. “The way that we make the show, the writers and everybody really want to focus on making things poignant and purposeful and meaningful. So if it were for Glenn to go, then it’s probably going to be awesome.”
Kirkman added about Glenn’s future that they had “a lot of cool stuff” lined up for Glenn in the next season.
