Reedus said he’s fired up about the new season. “It’s great, all the characters are so good this year. The direction is so good. The writing is so good… I’m excited!”
Season Four of “The Walking Dead” ended with Daryl locked in a railroad car in Terminus with Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and others, and while Reedus wouldn’t give too much away (“I feel like they’re tracking me from space, so whatever I say a laser beam is right at me”), he did drop one hint. “We get out of the car, I’ll tell you that.”
Reedus explained he doesn’t get to see scripts too much in advance. “Two weeks before we shoot and if there’s something big for a certain actor coming up, they give you a little heads up.”
Keeping Daryl alive is something that’s very important to his fans, who have said they will riot if he dies. Norman said he’s right there with them. “I’ll be the first in line. I’ll be passing out matches to all of you.”
Season 5 of “The Walking Dead” premieres Sunday, October 12 on AMC!
