Who knew the recipe for making a promo photo for “The Walking Dead” even more sinister was to add one partially-eaten chocolate chip cookie?
Andrew Lincoln, Melissa McBride and Norman Reedus grace the cover for the next issue of Entertainment Weekly, along with the sinister sweet, a call back to Carol’s truly chilling “deal” with young Sam in Season Five; namely, take the cookies and keep mum about the guns he saw in her possession, or she’ll kill him.
Beyond shooting the cover, EW spoke with the actors, who explain that despite the hope they had upon discovering Alexandria, in Season Six, Rick, Carol, Daryl and the rest will be anything but comfortable in their current environment.
“A lot of characters that you didn’t see having beef are starting to have beef-there’s a lot of mistrust,” Reedus told EW, with Lincoln adding, “When I read the first script, I called [showrunner Scott M. Gimple] up and went, ‘You know, I say them and they, and us and we a lot.’ He said, ‘That’s your journey, from them to us.'”
And while Executive Producer Greg Nicotero promises some flashback sequences, with the show presenting information to viewers in a non-sequential manner, Gimple cautions not to expect an origin story for Alexandria. “It’s more character-based rather than the background of the place,” he said. “There are some stories filled in regards to the comic that we haven’t even gotten to yet-sort of prequeling some comic stories that are coming up, which I’m very excited about.”
Based on the Image Comics series of the same name and created by Robert Kirkman, the sixth season of “The Walking Dead” is scheduled to debut with a 90-minute episode Oct. 11 on AMC.
