SPOILER WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for the sixth season of AMC's "The Walking Dead."
As the Season 7 premiere of AMC's "The Walking Dead" gets closer, more members of the cast and crew are coming out of the zombie-infested woodwork to promise greatness. Just a few days ago, Executive Producer and showrunner Scott M. Gimple defended the controversial cliffhanger ending of season 6's finale, "Last Day On Earth," and now, Melissa McBride has spoken to Entertainment Weekly about what fans can expect.
"It's going to rock the walls," says the actress -- who plays fan-favorite Carol Peletier on the show -- of the premiere in her EW interview. "The wait is worth it. Whether you’re angry with it or whether you liked the cliffhanger or whether you’re pissed off about it, the wait is worth it."
Although Carol is one of the few main characters whose head isn't on the chopping block, many of the other cast members are at risk. When we last saw them, Negan had bashed in one of their skulls with his barbed-wire baseball bat, Lucille, although the camera didn't reveal who had actually died. Fans will likely find out who Negan's mystery victim is in the premiere and, if McBride and Gimple's comments hold any water, they'll be treated to a lot of other cool plot points, too.
“The Walking Dead” returns to AMC on Sunday, October 23.
