“Season 6 is going to be phenomenal,” Michael Cudlitz, who plays Sgt. Abraham Ford, says. “The first episode is going to blow your mind.”
Not a bad way to tease the upcoming season of The Walking Dead right?
In a new behind-the-scenes clip, which dropped weeks before the cast’s upcoming panel at Comic Con in San Diego (July 9-12), the actors give a taste of what we’re all in store for in season 6—set to premiere Sunday, Oct. 10 on AMC.
While there are no real spoilers, here are three things we can take away from the teaser.
1) The Wolves aren’t done yet.
Those dangerous, creepy humans who call themselves the “Wolves” were introduced in the finale when they nearly ended Morgan’s journey and trapped Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Aaron (Ross Marquand) in one of their Walker traps.
“We ended on a really compelling note, so I’m excited to get going,” Sonequa Martin-Green, who plays Sasha, says. “I hope we find out a lot more about these Wolves.”
We sure hope so too.
2) Morgan is sticking around.
But, for how long?
Morgan was reunited with Rick in the final moments of the season 5 finale, and this upcoming season will hopefully reveal more about this mysterious man who carries a big stick.
Of course, the actor who plays Morgan (Lennie James) is not giving anything away. “I think I know, but I’m not sure,” he says of what’s in store for him.
3) Shovels, shovels, shovels.
Cudlitz can be seen holding a shovel in the video, and the screen cuts to Glenn (Steven Yeun) digging a whole with Maggie (Lauren Cohan) close by.
With this being The Walking Dead, holes are often being dug. It could be for a walker. Or, one of our favorite characters. No one is safe and for that reason we’ll be on the edge of our seats all season long.
Check out the full clip to see Darryl (Norman Reedus) plant a big wet kiss on one of his co-stars and learn how the cast deals with the Southern heat.
