At the 2015 National Association of Broadcasters Show, Robert Kirkman and Steven Yeun discussed the future of The Walking Dead with AMC President Charlie Collier. The current forecast? A whole lot more of Morgan!
Robert reported that the dynamic between Rick and Morgan that was set up at the end of season 5 will carry throughout the next. “Having Rick and Morgan together, finally, again is a huge deal, and it’s definitely going to be a big part of Season 6,” he said.
“Now it’s a very different Rick and a very different Morgan who are going to have a completely different relationship,” he added. “And it’s the questions of how they’re going to interact, how they’re going to work together — if they’re going to work together — and what comes from those interactions is going to be basically the spine of season six.”
Robert also teased that Steven Yeun would have a big season when The Walking Dead returns, which may or may not involve Glenn’s demise.
“The way that we make the show — the writers and everybody really want to focus on making things poignant and purposeful and meaningful,” Yeun said. “So if it were for Glenn to go, then it’s probably going to be awesome.”
