“The Walking Dead” Season 6 newly released trailer suggests what future holds for some of its characters while creator Robert Kirkman assures the show will not end soon.
“It’s a very popular show, and [the executives at AMC] seem to want it to go for 50 seasons,” Kirkman revealed on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast, Variety quoted.
Executive Producer Dave Alpert confirmed this news, saying he has mapped out the story until season 12.
“I happen to love working from source material, specifically because we have a pretty good idea of what season 10 is gonna be. We know where season 11 and 12…we have benchmarks and milestones for those seasons if we’re lucky enough to get there,” IndieWire quoted Alpert saying.
Kirkman also admitted in a recent Reddit AMA that the comic book series still had plenty of stories to tell.
“I do plan on doing at least 300 issues, but if I’m having this much fun then I won’t stop there. Also, if I suddenly start having a lot LESS fun, I may end it earlier, but I don’t see that happening. I’m in for the long haul, and Charlie Adlard is too,” he wrote on Reddit AMA.
Although Kirkman guaranteed the AMC hit show will not have its last season just yet, he admitted that he already has some finale ending in mind.
Meanwhile, Norman Reedus, who portrays Daryl Dixon, also revealed some spoilers in the upcoming season of the horror drama series.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, Reedus revealed Daryl will be in trouble in the sixth season.
“He’s in a lot of trouble. I won’t lie, he’s in some trouble,” Norman said.
The site also asked Norman if the presence of Morgan, played by Lennie James, in the trailer would mean the character will be seen more in Alexandria.
Norman replied, “I hope so. You never know on this show. His storyline was so important from the beginning.”
“The Walking Dead” season 6 premieres on Oct. 11 on AMC.
