AMC’s The Walking Dead is known for being bold when it comes to which characters will live and die during the zombie apocalypse. It was recently revealed that Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus have renewed their contracts for season eight of The Walking Dead, both received raises. This news indicates that both Daryl and Rick are safe for a while on Dead.
Both Rick and Daryl are massive fan favorites and despite some intense deaths this season, it seems like we won’t be losing these characters anytime soon.
While the show is well into its seven season, fans are wondering when another famous group from teh graphic novels will appear, the Whisperers. Recently, ComicBook.com spoke with showrunner Scott Gimple about the season. When asked about whether or not we will be seeing the Whisperers make an appearance, Gimple had this to say:
“If we’ve gotten this far without saying anything about them, I’d like the audience to discover this group when it’s on screen. I will say … I mean, it’s not the Whisperers. I will also say, though, that it’s not impossible that the Whisperers could come along or aspects of them could come along earlier than the timeline of the book, but certainly not this early.”
The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
