It’s a busy Georgia set, with “The Walking Dead” new season 5 filming; actors reveal hints of the October run, amid the buzz of rumors and spoilers taken from the graphic novels.
What’s confirmed so far: Terminus and the characters caught in its “trap.” Carol is also back, and though she’s buried the hatchet with Tyreese, the tension is expected to resurface as season 5 ensues.
Norman Reedus is pumped up with the new season’s progress. More characters are added onto the previous season, but Reedus only hinted as much.
“These scripts are the best scripts so far, and I’m really just excited to be back at it. There are a lot of characters right now, so there are a lot of really different personalities on set. And it’s super interesting, everyone’s really bringing it. It’s going great. It’s so dynamic because it’s so fast-paced and so complicated. It’s great to be back.”
Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon in the series, also confirms Rick Grimes is back as his sober self, a contrast from the rabid leader he was in season 4. “It’s interesting, because a lot of personalities are clashing, or characters’ personalities are clashing. But yeah, we definitely have Rick back.” (
Fans are quick to speculate on how “The Walking Dead” new season 5 will play out, especially with the graphic novel considered. There’s a rumor Glenn is killed off in the first few episodes, based on actor Steven Yeun’s prolonged absence in the Georgia set.
Yeun was spotted on-set as early as June 20, and it’s unlikely his character is killed off the story. An anonymous tip drops the bad news on Bob, though (Spoiler alert).
“Well yeah after Terminus Gareth and like 4 others turn into the hunters and take revenge on Rick and gang. Just like in the comics… And then the person who replaces Dales death is….. It’s Bob… It hasn’t been filmed yet and Lawrence doesn’t even know yet.” (
“The Walking Dead new season 5 resumes this October on AMC.
