‘The Walking Dead’ Showrunner Scott M. Gimple Talks Season 6 Threats
The Walking Dead cast and producers are currently hanging out at Comic-Con, but that didn’t stop the series showrunner from spilling some details about what to expect ahead of tomorrow’s panel.
Fans will recall the brutal group that leaves walkers strung up and carved W’s into their foreheads, and now that the group is aware of Rick (thanks to some tell-all pictures from Aaron’s bag, it’s easy to assume they’ll be at least one of the new threats in the upcoming season.
Read on to see what Gimple revealed to Entertainment Weekly during a chat, below:
On the mysterious group known as the Wolves
“I think there’s some parallels to the Terminus situation. I hope, whatever happens with them, I hope people aren’t expecting it.”
“It’s hard to explain. The thread will not be dropped, but there’s, like, spoilers on top of spoilers there. It plays a big part in the season, but maybe not in the way that people would expect. Which is weird. What I’m trying to say, is that one of them marries, officially, Glen and Maggie. Actually, just a group of Justice of the Peaces. That’s all they want to do is just marry people. It’s a really weird thing.”
On season 6 threats
“There are multiple threats, even in the first half of the season. And sort of different versions of threats we’ve seen before. The first three episodes are quite intense, and the cast and crew are — we just shot them out of a cannon directly into another cannon that we shot them out of again. The first three episodes are — we say every year, “Ah, it’s so crazy” and everything, and it has been crazy — but the first three episodes this year and the things that we’re doing are very big and very difficult, and we’re pushing people hard, and in some ways I think we’re going to be pushing the audience hard. I’m pretty excited and terrified about it.”
