Robert Kirkman Teases The Walking Dead Season 6 At NAB


Yesterday, April 14th, The Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman, spoke on a panel at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) alongside AMC President Charlie Collier and star Stephen Yeun.


During the talk, Kirkman divulged that there will be a lot more of Rick and Morgan dynamic:

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. 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 6.

Based on how Season 5 concluded, we could assume with some education that there would be some interaction between Rick and Morgan, so Kirkman isn’t really letting the rabbit out of the hat. However, it does sound like there will be some depth to this storyline. I think we can expect some speculation about how the world shouldn’t change a man’s character versus how in order to survive the zombie world one needs to abandon some of the moral restraints of old.

There was also some talk about Yeun’s character, fan favorite Glenn. It could be that Season 6 will be his last, although no one confirmed or denied this. However, Yeun did say:

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.


And finally, Collier still wouldn’t reveal the premiere date for The Walking Dead‘s companion series, Fear the Walking Dead.

So, what do you think of a heavy focus on the Rick/Morgan dynamic? Would you be upset if Glenn were to be killed off?
