The most anticipated return of the famous TV series, The Walking Dead, has been the talk of the town lately because in just a matter of time, season 7 will finally be shown. The fans of the show have waited 6 excruciating months just to finally see what’s going to happen after last season’s infamous cliffhanger.
But besides all the cliffhangers and whatnot from last season, spoilers have been roaming around the internet world that involves the whole content of season 7. Online sources say that according to The Walking Dead Executive Producer Greg Nicotero, the whole concept of the upcoming season will be based and closer to the comics.
“There are some great moments from the comic books that we’re going to get a chance to experience. To me it feels like we may be a little closer in nature to certain beats in the graphic novel than we have in the past, but that could just be my interpretation of it,” Nicotero said in an interview.
According to Inquisitr, this development could only mean that The Walking Dead will change drastically into something very different from the last six seasons. The creator himself, Robert Kirkman, confirmed that “everything changes this season” and that the show as a whole will change.
Meanwhile, because of last season’s cliffhanger where villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) took a swing of his barbed wire bat to the head of a mystery character, fans all over the planet have been theorizing as to which character will die in season 7’s premiere episode. Cinema Blend suggested that Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) is one of the most popular candidates but Reedus have hinted otherwise about his death.
“I’d like him to just walk away and just walk away into the woods, and people go, ‘Where the heck is that guy?. It’s like, ‘Oh, he gets shot.’ ‘Oh, he turns into a zombie.’ ‘They put him down.’ We’ve seen all of that happen so many times. I think with Daryl, because he came in that way, I think he should go out that way. He should just walk away, and people are like, ‘What ever happened to him?’ Nobody knows. He’s like the Outlaw Josey Wales or some s–t,” Reedus said in an interview.
The Walking Dead will return to AMC this Sunday, October 23rd.
