Speaking on a panel at New York Comic Con, the author of the comics the show is based on teased that the series would include more cliffhanger-style endings and twists.
“This is going to be the most intense season of ‘The Walking Dead’ yet. The first few episodes hit the ground running, and there’ll be pretty big cliffhangers at the end of every episode.”
Adapted from Kirkman’s series of graphic novels, The Walking Dead has found huge popularity that has made it one of the biggest programs on TV.
Well-known for its bleakness and gruesome zombie-fleeing action, season 6 of the show promises to up the ante as Rick Grimes and his crew continue to try and survive an undead filled America.
The show’s spin off, Fear the Walking Dead, recently wrapped up its first season, going back to the events at the start of the outbreak.
Kirkman mentioned that plans for the second series of the spin-off are already in place, hinting that it may take the characters to the sea.
“Just because it’s taking place on the boat, doesn’t mean they’ll stay on the boat … there’s lots of reasons to get off the boat or get onto a different boat. It’s a journey, it’ll be about these people trying to find a safe haven, but finding that such a place may not exist on land or water.”
Whilst Kirkman is the creator of the original comic books, he has plenty of creative influence on the show, even writing 6 episodes of the series itself.
The Walking Dead season 6 is available Sundays at 9pm on Fox.
