AMC ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 5 Start Date: Midseason Finale Has Over 800 Walkers, Andrew Lincoln Warns Families
Put the kids to bed early this October because, according to Andrew Lincoln, Season 4 of “The Walking Dead” isn’t for children.
“We’re really earning our rating this season,” Lincoln told Entertainment Weekly for their special four-cover issue. “There are families that watch it together, but just so it’s on the record, guys — it’s a grown-up show this season.”
Some of the gore is likely contributed to by the mass number of walkers that will be seen this season. Season 4 had 9,000, according to Huffington Post.
“I can tell you that in the mid-season finale that we just finished shooting there were upwards of 800 walkers for just that episode,” Greg Nicotero, the show’s executive producer and makeup artist, said. “I haven’t done the tally yet for this season, but being out in the world it’s a little trickier to avoid zombies. When you’re in the prison, you have a safe haven. The zombies aren’t so much of an everyday occurrence, whereas in this season we’re out in the world at some point so they’re there.”
“By minute two or three of our season premiere, I think the vast majority of our questions have been answered, and five or six more have been presented, so you’re very much going to be invested, well-informed, and ready for the ride that we’re going to take you on,” Robert Kirkman, “The Walking Dead” comic book creator and show executive producer and writer, told EW.
Season 5 will also feature a tribute in Episode 1, Nictotero told Huffingotn Post, although’s “little more subtle, and this time it’s not necessarily a zombie.”
“We hit certain milestones from the comic book that are tailored to our show and our characters, and certain storylines that we see in the comic book we will see in various places through Season 5,” he continued.

Hollywood, CA, United States (4E) – In a recent interview published by Entertainment Weekly, the surviving cast of the hit show share how they envision their characters to meet their end—
Lauren Cohan, sees her character Maggie jumping of a cliff, while holding hands with her on-screen love interest, Glenn.
Chad Coleman, who plays Tyreese, wants to leave the show by doing something brave and heroic.
Michael Cudlitz, says of his character Abraham: “I would hope that his death would be befitting of his life and Abraham did everything hard.”
One half of the post apocalyptic It couple, Glenn, played by Steven Yeun thinks it’s hard to top the way he was offed in the comic. “What a way to take out a character, and a character that’s been there for so long, by just snatching him away from the viewers and the readers.”
One of the toughest characters on the show, Michonne, played by Danai Gurira believes her death should be something that stays true to the way the show built her character on the show.
Melissa McBride, who plays Carol says she’d like to leave the show without any last words, believing her character to have already made clear what she stands for and what she has to say throughout her run.
Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick simply says: “I don’t care how it goes, but maybe a kid should take me out.”
And finally, everyone’s favorite zombie archer, Daryl, played by Norman Reedus says…”You would just see him walk down a road like Mad Max and I’d get smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller, and then a little dog would run on the road with me and just start following me off into the sunset, and you’d never know what happened to him. I would wanna go out like that”
I have added HD screencaps as the previous ones were DVD quality.
