‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 Will End Humanity, Predicts Norman Reedus


The Walking Dead’s seventh season is so good, it could signify the end of humanity as we know it.

OK, that’s not really going to happen, but actor Norman Reedus is so pleased with the new batch of episodes thus far that he’s predicting “the planet is going to explode” when the hit AMC drama returns this fall.

Daryl Dixon’s portrayer tells Entertainment Weekly Radio that showrunner Scott Gimple and TWD creator Robert Kirkman are “earning” that massive Season 6 finale cliffhanger with the Season 7 opener.

“Trust me. I think probably the planet is going to explode. That’s my feeling. It’s so good,” he explains. “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.”

Oh, Norman, don’t you tease us with those Negan puns!

The 47-year-old adds, “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.”

While the Ride With Norman star can understand fans’ insatiable need to know what happened, he’s not a fan of spoilers.

“I don’t like spoilers, to be honest, I don’t want people to tell me the ending to the movie when we sit down in a movie theater. I don’t like them, so I don’t do them,” he says. “I like the enthusiasm behind everyone wanting to know, but it’s a good feeling to have that enthusiasm, so let’s hold onto it.” 

And hold onto it we must, as we still have about five months until TWD returns.

The Walking Dead Season 7 will premiere in the fall on AMC.
