The Walking Dead: Norman Reedus Promises "We Don't All Survive" Season Six
The Walking Dead returns next Sunday, and according to Norman Reedus, the second half of the season is going to be just as deadly as we all thought it was going to be. In this video preview of the final few episodes, he promises that the core characters "don't all survive" the season.

"There's some large things that happen to us in the back half," Reedus says in the video. "We don't all survive, and we don't all take it very well."

Of course, you could easily say this about any Walking Dead season, as people are bound to die in a zombie apocalypse. But it seems like he's hinting that there will be deaths within the core cast, which actually doesn't happen in every season finale (no core character died at the end of season five, for example). It will likely happen in this one, though, as the video heavily previews the arrival of Negan, and everything that entails.

"This is a whole new experience they're stepping into in the second half of the season," says Danai Gurira, while EP Greg Nicotero promises a huge shift in the series, just as the comics experienced after the arrival of its longest-running villain. "Our story's about to take a dramatic turn," he says.

Negan killing Glenn, as he does in the comics, would definitely quality as a "dramatic turn," as Glenn is the only remaining character other than Rick who's been with the series since the pilot. Many fans have speculated that Daryl may stand in for Glenn in that iconic scene from the 100th issue, but Reedus' statements may imply that it will, in fact, be Glenn. It might be misdirection, but the fact that Reedus mentions the aftermath of the big death, while Steven Yeun keeps it a little vaguer, may indicate that the series will stay true to the comics in this respect.

"It's a part of the comic book that I've been looking forward to getting to," says Lincoln over footage of Daryl meeting Negan's group. "We do face the most formidable terrifying threat."
