Robert Kirkman Calls Season 5 of The Walking Dead the ‘Best Season Yet’

We're just a few months away from the return of "The Walking Dead" and series creator Robert Kirkman is already convinced it's their best effort yet.

"I think the coolest thing about coming back to season 5 is that we really hit the ground running," he tells EW. "What I mean by that is that we very quickly deal with the situation that we left them in — this trapped, victim situation where they’re kind of at the mercy of the people of Terminus. We really kind of expand the story from there very rapidly, so I think this is going to be a pretty fast-paced season with quite a bit going on. News is already out that Seth Gilliam has been added, and we’re bringing in new characters like we always do, and I think season 5 is going to be our best season yet. I think when people finally see the premiere, they’ll see what I’m talking about."

Kirkman went on to talk about the addition of actor Seth Gilliam to the series, who many believe is playing the role of Father Gabriel from the comic book series.

"He’s playing a character that’s very integral to the future of The Walking Dead. Who he is is possibly a very large hint to where the story is gonna go, if you’ve read the comic book series. So, we are playing that as close to the vest as the spy photos will allow, but all will be revealed very soon."

Based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, Season Five of “The Walking Dead” is currently in production and is set to air on AMC this fall. It stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney, Danai Gurira, Chad Coleman and Sonequa Martin-Green.
