The way things were left on last season’s final episode of Walking Dead, let’s just say life isn’t looking great for Rick Grimes and his crew. To make things worse (or to just confirm our worst fears) Norman Reedus says we’re in for a devastating 7th season.

Reedus paid a visit to Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) on Thursday morning to discuss his new AMC unscripted motorcycle series Ride with Norman Reedus, which premieres June 12th. But it’s impossible to chat with Reedus without bringing up his thoughts on the TWD cliffhanger that still has people talking.

“They’re still talking about it,” he said. “I’ve been making art for a long time and you want people to talk. Sometimes you make something just to get people to talk. The fact that people are still talking is a huge compliment to how that episode was executed and the acting in it and the writing of it. That’s a good thing. Talk sometimes its good. I know we all have phones and everything is instant gratification now. I get it. I like that too. I like the controversy, to be honest. For that many people to be that invested in that show and freaking out, I think it’s great.”

Like most of the cast and crew, he has no idea what will happen in Season 7. But like every single WD fan, he has his guesses.


“Trust me. I think probably the planet is going to explode,” he said. “That’s my feeling. It’s so good. Every time we go on a promotional tour talking about what’s going to come, we all say ‘Oh my God, it’s amazing. I can’t wait for you to see it.’ But it continually surprises me how this show grows and is put together and the execution of it – no pun intended. It blows my mind. It just continually reaches a new plateau every single time, and this is the highest plateau we’ve ever been. So just wait. It’s worth the wait, trust me.”

Cannot. Handle. The. Suspense. The Walking Dead comes back this fall!
