Fans are anxiously waiting for October, when season 5 of "The Walking Dead" will premiere on AMC. It has been teased that viewers are going to have an action-packed season. However, some scenes might not make it to American television screens, according to a Christian Today post, dated July 10.

The website reported that actress Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Greene on "The Walking Dead" recently tweeted that an episode that was recently filmed was "so disturbing." She added that she wasn't sure if some scenes would even make it to the television screen. Examiner was unable to locate the tweet on Lauren's account. However, Vulture magazine posted a teaser video for the season 5 premiere and in it, the actress did say those words.

Also in the video was Norman Reedus, who plays the role of Daryl Dixon. He talked about the script and it definitely sounds like viewers are in for some amazing scenes. Looking pretty beat up, he said of the scripts,

"Every couple of pages, you're just like 'Oh my God!' and you have to put it down for a second and think about it."

Some of the other actors also spoke excitedly about what to expect in the season premiere. Chad Coleman (Tyreese) was amazed about what was in the script. Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) said that it is ambitious, is about hierarchy and added that people are going to find out where exactly they belong in the group. Steven Yeun (Glenn Rhee) stated that it is going to be a great welcome to the season, but warned viewers that they are going to have to watch closely. Michael Cudlitz, who was introduced in season 4 as Abraham Ford said that all hell is breaking loose and Sonequa Martin-Green, who plays Sasha, revealed that it is going to be crazy.

John Sanders, property master, also chimed in and said that there is going to be a lot more action. He also stated that there will be more walkers, specifically emphasizing "a lot more" zombies. Besides having more action and walkers, co-executive producer Denise Huth said that season 5 of "TWD" is going to be a lot bloodier.

As for the disturbing scenes that Lauren was referring to, Hollywood Daily News speculated that it could involve walkers and the alleged cannibals at Terminus. This is a logical theory since it has been previously reported that Terminus would be dealt with quickly. A YouTube video that claimed to have spoilers for the first five episodes of the season stated that Team Prison would get out of Terminus on the premiere episode.

It is pretty common for writers to want to kick every season up a notch. If they didn't, then shows would start to become boring, which is something they don't want. But how far will season 5 of "The Walking Dead" go and will it be too much for viewers? Will the network insist on cutting certain scenes out?

Those that have read "The Walking Dead" comics say that as the issues progressed, things became more disturbing and brutal. Although the television show doesn't allows mirror the comics, it does make sense that they will want to continue to engage fans and shock viewers. That is one of the things that makes the show so successful and so addicting.

What do you think was filming that was so disturbing? How intense do you think season 5 of "The Walking Dead" will get?
