Mistrust And Internal Conflict Bubble Over In Latest Screens For The Walking Dead Season 6

Entertainment Weekly has slipped past security and into the walled-off haven of Alexandria, returning with a fresh batch of screenshots for AMC’s hotly-anticipated The Walking Dead season 6 – and a cookie or two from Carol.

Acting as the cover star of the latest issue – bringing together Andrew Lincoln, Melissa McBride and Norman Reedus for a rather cheeky shoot – EW has also uncovered the first details about the events of the upcoming season. With the future and safety of Alexandria hanging in the balance, there’s tension on both sides of the wall, as Rick and his ragtag group of survivors experience “a lot of internal conflict,” according to Reedus, who returns as fan-favorite Daryl. “A lot of characters that you didn’t see having beef are starting to have beef—there’s a lot of mistrust.”


Returning as showrunner of The Walking Dead season 6, Scott M. Gimple hints that the latest batch of episodes are chock-full of action, and it won’t delve into the history of Alexandria much like the previous seasons did with Terminus. In fact, Executive Producer Greg Nicotero – who directed the first episode of the new season – teased that the premiere will open right in the thick of the action with a “heightened action sequence, and we then jump around in that time frame to allow the audience to put together in their own minds what it is that we actually just saw.”

Boasting new zombies, new threats and yet the same old burning desire for survival, The Walking Dead will return for season 6 exclusively on AMC Sunday, October 11th at 9 p.m. Fans chomping at the bit for new material will be happy to know that the premiere is 90-minutes in length, while Entertainment Weekly is promising ample new content for the show when the latest issue is released tomorrow, July 31.
