Norman Reedus has been speaking about The Walking Dead premiere ahead of his appearance in Episode 3, and has teased the fallout that shapes the rest of Season 7.
The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere had serious ramifications for Rick's group, and speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Norman Reedus has dished on the fallout from the premiere. If you need a reminder of what transpired, you can check out our recap of The Walking Dead Season 7: Episode 1 here. Reedus said, "It’s a different season now. We’ve never not been in control or at least thought we were in control. You have to break down heroes to see them turn into bigger heroes. Hopefully those heroes make it and hopefully those heroes find their way back to the type of people that fight for freedom and fight for their friends. It’s just a different season. It’s uplifting and it’s heartbreaking all at the same time, it’s a very emotional ride this year. It’s a very bold move, but the payoff is really big."
Reedus continued, "It’s easy to give everybody what they want every time we do it, just give them the same old thing. But it’s a very gutsy, brave move to push the show forward, and you have to push the show forward. We’ve always been a breathing animal. This show’s always been on the move and that’s what keeps it fresh and what keeps people interesting and interested. We’re on the right path. It’s really a heavy season this year. I think Andy [Lincoln] should be nominated. Just watching that first episode, he’s killing it this year. He does some great, great stuff for the rest of the year. He’s really, really taking the bull by the horns on this show." At least there's a light at the end of the tunnel for Rick's crew! In related news, The Walking Dead Season 7: Episode 4 will be 85 minutes long. What did you think of the season premiere?
