Robert Kirkman Says Answers in Season 5 of the walking dead
The folks from The Walking Dead have not exactly been forthcoming with info as to what is in store for our not-so-merry band of survivors trapped in train car A when the zombie drama returns to AMC in October. But when Robert Kirkman called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk about his new comic Outcast, he also spilled the beans on what we can expect in the season 5 premiere of TWD. So what should we expect? Answers! And lots of them, especially when it comes to the (possibly cannibal) captors of Terminus. “There’s a lot going on with Terminus,” says Kirkmam. “In our premiere episode of season 5 we’re 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.”

WAIT, WHAT??!?! DARYL DIES?!? Okay, we think/pray he’s kidding about that last bit, but are happy that answers are coming. In fact, some answers are already here as Kirkman also confirmed to us that “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.”
While Rick Grimes and Co. will not be stuck in train car A indefinitely, we also asked Kirkman how long he envisions The Walking Dead being on the air, and the comic book creator does not see it ending any time soon. “I’m still doing the comic, he says, “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.” With or without Daryl Dixon, it seems.
