In a behind-the-scenes video produced by AMC, the creators and cast of the network’s biggest hit talk about upping the ante, and finding their place in the group
Production is underway on “The Walking Dead,” and AMC offered fans a sneak peek behind the scenes during filming on the Season 5 premiere. It didn’t give away any spoilers about what’s to come for the show’s rabid fans, but the cast certainly hinted at major developments.
“It’s one of those scripts that every couple of pages you’re just like, ‘Oh my God,’ and you have to put it down for a second and you have to just think about it,” said Norman Reedus, who plays fan-favorite Daryl.
Chad L. Coleman (Tyreese) summed up the script for the season premiere in one word, “Wow,” while Steven Yeun (Glenn) called it “a great welcome to the season.”
Andrew Lincoln, who plays group leader Rick, said, “It’s the most ambitious, the first episode, I think we’ve attempted.” He described this fifth season as one where everyone has to figure out their place in the group.
But are they pushing the envelope too far this season? Lauren Cohan, who portrays Maggie, said at the shoot, “This episode is so disturbing … Some of the stuff they shot yesterday, I don’t know if it’ll make it to TV.” Fans will find out when Season 5 kicks off in October 2014.
