Well, nice to know that Robert Kirkman is almost as irritatingly vague to the cast members about upcoming plot developments as he is to the press! Click here to read what Kirkman has told EW.com about S5 most recently.
We’re going to assume he means magical as in awesome, and not magical as in Doug Henning returning as a rainbow jumpsuit wearing zombie…although that would be pretty awesome in its own right. Kirkman also talked about how this season has already been a bit different by the fact that the show will be picking up again after its first ever season finale cliffhanger. “There’s been a lot more secrecy on set,” says Kirkman. “Just because any images that get out of any kind of things that are seen do in a sense spoil that cliffhanger, so we’re trying to keep things a little more tight this time around. There’s always people crowding around where we’re filming and trying to get spy spots of what we’re doing and stuff, but for the most part we’ve been able to avoid that. This is the first time we’ve really finished a season and gone back to the same place for the next season, so that’s kind of cool.”

Hey, I’d watch a Doug Henning as a zombie episode. We get a liiiiitle more information than usual from the notoriously vague Kirkman, which isn’t saying much. However, it’s nice to know that the episode will start right where it left off. Hopefully by the end of the S5 premiere of TWD, those cannibals WILL feel pretty stupid when they find out who they’re fucking with!
In other (EW.com) Walking Dead S5 news, Norman Reedus says S5 will be “completely insane”. Read more on that by clicking here.
