‘Walking Dead’ Creator Teases Season Six

Kirkman discussed the AMC drama and also spoke about upcoming spin-off show 'Fear the Walking Dead' at an NAB Show panel earlier in the week.

Robert Kirkman has teased the sixth season of ‘The Walking Dead’, which will return to AMC in October of this year.

Kirkman discussed the AMC drama and also spoke about upcoming spin-off show ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ at an NAB Show panel earlier in the week.

Kirkman revealed that fans of the show will be seeing a lot more of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Morgan Jones (Lennie James) together, The Wrap reports.

“Having Rick and Morgan together, finally, again is a huge deal, and it’s definitely going to be a big part of season 6,” he said.

“Now it’s a very different Rick and a very different Morgan who are going to have a completely different relationship.

“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.”

Kirkman also revealed that he was confident that the series would easily go beyond its sixth season.

“This isn’t the kind of show where the creative team is going to say, ‘It’s important to us that we end it here’.

“The story that we’re trying to tell is so big, and the framework is set in the comics – I’m producing more than 12 issues a year. All of that stuff is stuff that we would like to someday adapt into the show.”

He added: “Our long-term goal was to tell this unrealistically massive huge story, so by going season after season after season, we actually are maintaining the integrity of what we originally set out to do.

“So I think there’s a possibility to go for many, many years.”
