The Walking Dead season 5 will see deaths of 'favourite characters', suggests Andrew Lincoln
Star promises "real jeopardy for favourite characters"
In case you were worried that The Walking Dead season 5 would see everyone just chill out and be nice to one another, Andrew Lincoln has confirmed that it will be as death-filled as ever, possibly seeing some major characters bumped off.
Asked about the show's rampant killing off of its characters, Lincoln told Entertainment Weekly: "It is an inevitable part of this show. It’s one of the great things, I think, that you have real jeopardy for favourite characters. It won’t be without its share of death this season."
Showrunner Scott Gimple recently said that season 5 will be "completely different" to four, and go to "new places".
Lincoln also discussed the new Rick Grimes we'll be seeing when the show returns in October.
"You find Rick in an incredibly dangerous and powerful place this season," he said."
"He’s not in any doubt about his brutality as well as his humanity, and I think he’s made peace with that.
"But that does not negate him being a great father. I think that everything is about the children and his family. If you stand alongside him, you’re his family.
"If you stand against him, then you’re a problem."
