Robert Kirkman Teases The Walking Dead Season 5, A New Rick Grimes

at . Comments

Brace yourselves, Walking Dead Fanatics.

According to a VERY reliable source, The Walking Dead Season 5 will be "the best season yet" of this AMC smash.

Isn't that right, Robert Kirkman?

The creator spoke with Entertainment Weekly in anticipation of his show heading to Comic-Con next week, offering up an intriguing tease of The Walking Dead premiere.

"It’s very much going to focus on the story of Terminus,” Kirkman said of the October opener. “There’s a lot of big revelations that haven’t really come out that I think people are gonna be pretty startled by… We’ll definitely be defining those in some cool ways and confirming some theories and shooting down others."

Kirkman adds that the show hits “the ground running,” immediately dealing with situation of our heroes and heroines being “at the mercy of the people of Terminus.”

Look for new actors (such as Seth Gilliam) to make a big impact right away.

"We really kind of expand the story very rapidly, so I think this is going to be a pretty fast-paced season with quite a bit going on," Kirkman said.

Visit EW for the full Kirkman interview - in which he previews a darker, more intense Rick Grimes ("I can say with confidence that he’s here, and Andrew Lincoln is having a great time with it.") - and watch The Walking Dead online right now if you need to catch up.
