We're going to see more and more promo material emerge from the fifth season of "The Walking Dead", especially now that Comic-Con is right around the corner, so strap a bib on and get ready to dig in. Today there are four new stills from the AMC series to gawk at, although of course none of them show very much; just the usual angry, dirty faces staring off into nothingness.
But here's something to chew on. Steven Yeun (Glenn) is doing some talking about the new season, and he's especially focusing on how "brutal" it will be. Read on:
I can't give too much away ‘cause it's pretty brutal. I will say the group is evolving, the group is not a group to be messed with anymore. I think last year where we left off with Rick saying ‘They don't know who they are screwing with' is absolutely right. These people have gotten through quite a bit and they persevered over a lot and they lost countless lives, but at the same time, the people that have continued to live on have become stronger. You kind of don't want to mess with these guys. I will leave it at that!"
Yeun goes on to say "The Walking Dead" is pushing boundaries like never before.
I remember a couple of scenes I would look over at what was going on in the scene and I would be like, ‘What the eff? What are we doing? How is this legal? It's grounded and real, too; it's not like torture or gore for no reason," he said. "It's literally, that is what would happen and we are trying to show it. It would not work on network television, let me tell you that."
Sounds good to me! "The Walking Dead" returns to AMC in October.
