With The Walking Dead Season 6 finale ending on a cliff-hanger, there is a good chance that fans of the show will tune in to season 7, if only to see who Negan ended up killing. However, Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl, says there will many other highlights in a season that “the planet is going to explode” over.
In fact, there are many who believe that Negan’s unfortunate victim will be Daryl; however, Reedus promises viewers will be entertained from beginning to end regardless of whether or not his character is alive. He revealed as much to Entertainment Weekly in an interview:
“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.”
As for the controversial season 6 finale, the actor had the following to say:
“I’ve been making art for a long time and you want people to talk. 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.”
It will be a long before Daryl and the rest of The Walking Dead gang return to TV screens, so feel free to speculate away. What are you hopping to see?
