Walking Dead Trio Preview the 'Most Intense 6 Minutes Ever,' Hint at a Change in the Mythology's Rules

The theme for The Walking Dead‘s Season 5 premiere is, “Whoa!s before hoes.”

Hanging with Michael Ausiello in TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con video suite, executive producer Scott M. Gimple and cast members Andrew Lincoln and Michael Cudlitz said that unlike the previous opener, which found Rick quietly tilling the land, the Oct. 12 premiere launches right into the AMC drama’s “most intense six minutes” ever.

Which is saying something!

The trio also talk about Rick’s growing family, Abraham’s agenda and the idea of a cure existing in D.C. — a twist that just might deviate from the comic-book series’ rules, Gimple says. Plus: Check out Lincoln’s take on “Ricky,” a character in the upcoming TWD spin-off.

    Is Andrew Lincoln seriously in TWD spin-off…. Playing a dude name ‘Ricky’? Well not interested in that just the regular Walking Dead series!

  4. Moment says:

    Lincoln is absolutely spot on about his character. Watch from about the 2 minute on mark, you’ll hear a man who truly understands the character he’s playing.

  5. Labpar says:

    Andrew lincoln is great. He is so articulate and smart, it’s always great to hear his viewpoints.
