Fans are anxiously awaiting the return of "The Walking Dead" this fall, and with it comes speculation as to what season five of the hit zombie drama will hold. Thursday, Entertainment Wise shares that even though filming will begin soon for the upcoming season, Chandler Riggs, who plays Carl Grimes, has no idea what is in store for his character because he hasn't seen scripts yet.
While everyone hopes to survive the season, it's not likely, and even Rob Kirkman and Scott Gimple, the showrunner, says that the tone of season five is going to be much different and more practical than even the end of season four which was all about survival. There will be a shift in location, a shift in the overall tone of the show, and the overall feeling of the season will be very intense.
While cast members await their scripts, one feeling is the same throughout, everyone wants to know if they are doing okay and if they have survived long enough to get a script. While Daryl Dixon is a fan favorite, as well as a favorite of creator, Rob Kirkman, Norman Reedus doesn't feel that's enough to keep him safe on the show. This might be true as nobody is safe on this show, even children, which was evident last season when both Lizzy and Mika were killed off.
The exception in this coming season, at least for the first half of the show, at least, is likely Daryl as it has been revealed earlier that he will be getting his romantic tryst this season. Many fans are hoping that it will be with Beth once (or if) she returns. With a more intense season, and new locations, likely as the group makes their way to Washington D.C., it is likely that there will be more walkers, and fans have learned, more cast coming.
"The Walking Dead" will return for season five in October. Even if the show will be more intense, fans are anxiously awaiting it's return.
