The Walking Dead‘s forthcoming season 6 will bring a major arc for Rick and Morgan, according to showrunner Robert Kirkman. He revealed his future plans for the show at the NAB panel on Wednesday (April 14) with AMC president Charlie Collier and series star Steven Yeun.
Having Rick and Morgan together, finally, again is a huge deal, and it’s definitely going to be a big part of Season 6.
Now it’s a very different Rick and a very different Morgan who are going to have a completely different relationship,” he added. “And it’s the questions of how they’re going to interact, how they’re going to work together — if they’re going to work together — and what comes from those interactions is going to be basically the spine of season six.
A DEATH OF A MAJOR CHARACTER IN SEASON 6?
Kirkman also hints that Steven Yeun’s Glenn could face death in the new season. Yeun, although uncertain of Glenn’s future, is confident that if his character faces an unfortunate fate — it will be a meaningful one.
Here’s a statement from Yeun in the panel:
The way that we make the show — the writers and everybody really want to focus on making things poignant and purposeful and meaningful. So if it were for Glenn to go, then it’s probably going to be awesome.
