What’s the Meaning Behind These ‘Walking Dead’ Season 6 Character Portraits?
When The Walking Dead returns there’s more tension than ever, and you can see it in the character’s faces in their new season six portraits.
The network previously released a batch of character portraits from the upcoming season, but new shots featuring Sasha with some walkers in Alexandria, Rick and Morgan looking less than chummy and an injured Daryl were also released, giving fans a possible look at what lies ahead for their favorite characters.
The portraits all look like they could be teasing the struggles each character will face this year, with Rick and Morgan on opposing sides, Maggie doing some self-examination, Michonne getting reacquainted with her katana and Darryl nursing a wound… or they could just be cool promo pics with great settings. You decide.
You can view the portraits below:
As The Walking Dead enters its sixth season with no signs of the apocalypse coming to an end, some fans may wonder how long the show can or will run. “It’s a very popular show, and [the executives at AMC] seem to want it to go for 50 seasons. And it may go for 50 seasons, but there is definitely an end point at some point,” TWD creator Robert Kirkman said in an interview. “The idea is that this story that’s longer than it has any business being, but it’s that length and watching those characters evolve over that time that’s gonna make it be this piece, that when it’s all done, you’ll look back on it and be like ‘what the hell, I thought they were just killing zombies. There’s totally an arc here and a thing going on, and I didn’t think the story was about this!’”
The Walking Dead Season 6 premieres Sunday, October 11 at 9/8c on AMC.
