Robert Kirkman Teases The Walking Dead Season 5 and Beyond
June 26, 2014
We're just a few months away from the return of "The Walking Dead" and last time we saw our heroes, they were in a rather compact situation. Speaking with EW, series creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman assures us that we'll be getting answers in the very first episode of the fifth season.
"There's a lot going on with Terminus. In our premiere episode of season 5 we’'e going to give a ton of answers of who the people of Terminus are, what they're doing, why they're doing it, what's going on with them. And by the end of that episode you're going to have a much better understanding of what's going on with them and why they're so important to the show. Oh, and Daryl dies."
Kirkman also revealed that the gang will be getting some much needed fresh air early on in the season.
"They definitely get out of that train car. They do not spend the entirety of season 5 in that train car. It is through ingenuity and creativity and somewhat savageness that they are able to make their way out of that train car."
The outlet also asked Kirkman about the future of the series, which shows no signs of stopping.
"I'm still doing the comic and plan in doing it for many, many years. And right now the issues that we are doing as we speak is material that could be adapted into a season 10, 11, or 12 depending on how we adapt things. And we're not stopping. So five years for now we'll be doing comics that could be for season 15. Now, it's unrealistic to think it can go for that long, but if the show remains successful, the potential is there for that…. All that said, I'm just hoping and praying we make it to season 7."
Based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, Season 5 of "The Walking Dead" is currently in production and is set to air on AMC this fall.
