All cast members of "The Walking Dead" are revealing that the upcoming season will be nothing less than epic. Recently, Danai Gurira (Michonne) shared that "The Walking Dead" Season 5 is mind-blowing. Now, Andrew Lincoln, who talked to Gold Derby, mentioned that the new season will be "astonishing." Moreover, the actor, who plays Rick Grimes, revealed that the stories of the first few episodes are astonishing as well.
During the interview with Andrew, Gold Derby mentioned that his co-star Danai called the new season mind-blowing.
"Yeah, I think that it's an amazing thing," said Andrew.
"And I know that there's so much hyperbole surrounding filmmaking and promotion of shows. It's always ramped up to the max, but I truly believe that this - well, I was so excited to return this season, mainly because we'd never left a season on a cliffhanger, and I think that that's given the show an incredible impact."
Andrew also talked about the first few episodes of "The Walking Dead" Season 5 and how there are no holds barred.
"Certainly the first few episodes just - there are no holds barred," said the TV star.
"We come out of the blocks at full speed. So it's an interesting experience, because it's almost like we jump back into the middle of the heart of darkness. I think the first few episodes - I'm not allowed to say numbers - I think the first few episodes that I've read are astonishing. Not only for the energy and the emotional impact, but just story - how they are able to develop character in amongst this incredible thrill ride. I'm really, really excited by it. I think if we capture 75 percent, 70 percent of what I read in the script, I think fans are going to be more than happy."
These tiny teases shared by the stars are what making the wait somewhat bearable for fans.
"The Walking Dead" Season 5 episodes air this October on AMC.
