“Walking Dead” star Andrew Lincoln’s character, Rick Grimes, was one of the first characters the viewers of the show met during the first season. Grimes quickly met a few others survivors and the group has been staying somewhat close-knitted throughout the seasons. While some have changed their minds, others have died. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Oct. 7, “Walking Dead” star Andrew Lincoln is now revealing that the group will find plenty of new survivors, which will rattle some relationships.
And while only so much can be done with a world full of zombies, he reveals that new survivors will rattle the group. “There’s around about 50 new characters, and that puts obviously an enormous pressure on the group with the practical necessities.” The original 10 will have to adjust to new relationships and maybe there will be some betrayals in the mix.
“We were a band of maybe 10 characters at the end of last season,” Andrew says. “So there’s the character relationships, and the group dynamic has changed — radically.” And of course, some people who think they are running the group will have to question the loyalties. He adds, “There are always going to be tensions within the group.”
