It looks like The Walking Dead season 6 will focus on a lot of character development along with the usual zombie-killing action. Actor Steven Yeun who plays Glenn on the show, recently shared some interesting details on the upcoming season.
"It's easy to use the buzzwords — to say 'roller coaster' or 'intense,'" Yeun told Entertainment Weekly. "I think last year was a very good indicator of where we're headed. We're seeing everybody as who they are now. You've found them grizzled. You've found them completely broken and shattered and they've all witnessed and experienced terrible things. And so you get to see them there. We wear it on our face. We wear it on our body. To see where we've evolved to is awesome."
"So [season] 6 is that, is showing how much has been taken away from us. The end goal is to find some semblance of life that we lost before. I think you're going to see some deeply emotional character story and you're also going to see, as we always do, some crazy-ass s—."
Earlier rumours around the sixth season of TWD suggested that it might be the last one for Glenn. His death on the show is directly related to the brutal villain Negan's rumoured appearance in season 6.
Fans of The Walking Dead comic books will know that soon after the survivors arrive in Alexandria, they encounter a group known as the Saviors. Their leader, a sociopath known as Negan, brutally murders Glenn by beating him to death with his baseball bat.
In April, Yeun also weighed in on the possibility of Glenn dying. "If I go — that could happen," Yeun said, adding that he's felt lucky to be a part of the phenomenon.
"...The way that we make the show — the writers and everybody really want to focus on making things poignant and purposeful and meaningful. So if it were for Glenn to go, then it's probably going to be awesome," the actor added.
