Many fans are still talking about "The Walking Dead's" Season 6 cliffhanger, and star Norman Reedus thinks that's a good thing. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he discussed why he considers that a compliment and how he believes fans will react when the show returns for its seventh season this fall.
As to the Season 7 premiere, he said, "I think probably the planet is going to explode. That's my feeling. It's so good. 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. 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."
Additionally, he has no plans of spoiling the surprise for anyone. "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 explained. "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."
"I've been making art for a long time and you want people to talk," he added. "Sometimes you make something just to get people to talk. The fact that people are still talking is a huge compliment to how that episode was executed and the acting in it and the writing of it. That's a good thing. Talk, sometimes its good. I know we all have phones and everything is instant gratification now. I get it. I like that too. I like the controversy, to be honest. For that many people to be that invested in that show and freaking out, I think it's great."
"The Walking Dead" will return to AMC for its seventh season this October.
