Good news, Walking Dead fans, your favorite broody teen from the zombie apocalypse is set to do a Reddit AMA! That's right, Chandler Riggs (a.k.a. Carl Grimes himself) will be taking fan questions during a special "Ask Me Anything" session on February 13th — that's one day after the return of Season 7.
Riggs is actually quite active on both the site and #TheWalkingDead subreddit, and even commented on the announcement thread saying he was "stoked for it." And yes, it was really him — he verified his Reddit handle of chandlercriggs on Twitter:
Not So Fast!
While you're probably dying to ask Riggs your most pressing Carl-related queries, you might want to double check he hasn't already addressed them. His regular posting in The Walking Dead subreddit has cleared up a few common questions in the past, and you don't want to find yourself at the mercy of the Reddit's most unforgiving Walking Dead fans.
First of all, yes, people still yell "CORAL!" at him at conventions all these years later; he double-checked the script for Season 7 Episode 4 and didn't see one mention of morse code; he thought Season 1 was way better than Season 2; and yes, he actually does like his hair at that length, thank you very much.
Also, in case you're wondering, he is in fact Pudsey the One-Eyed Bear:

What We're All Dying To Know
Now that that's out of the way, it's time to formulate some serious questions to which we're all desperate to know the answers. If you're one of those people who eagerly awaits celebrity AMAs but has no idea what to ask when the time comes, here are a few suggestions:
1. Will You Give Up Zombies For Music?
Riggs has been busying himself between shooting by producing electronic music, samplings of which he's been uploading to Twitter. He hasn't yet released any tracks, but no doubt his fans are going to want to get their hands on his musical creations when he does. But considering how time-consuming producing music can be, it really begs the question: Could his budding music career overtake his acting?
Riggs started acting at a very young age, and now that he's older, his newfound passion has the potential to take priority. Let's hope he's as good at juggling his various responsibilities as Walking Dead co-star Sonequa Martin-Green.
2. What's The Worst Part About Wearing That Eyepatch?
Does his eye itch constantly? Does it get super sweaty and uncomfortable in the hot Georgia heat? Is his other eye now way stronger to compensate? Will he switch from a bandage to a legitimate eyepatch like the Governor rocked, or will he opt for Negan's preferred badass look of raw, exposed eye socket?
3. What's The Best Prank You've Seen Between Norman Reedus And Andrew Lincoln?
Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln have been in the midst of a notorious on-set prank war for some time now. From glitter stuffed in air vents to a trailer filled with chickens, the pranks are getting better and better each time. Given how much time he spends with the two jokers, Riggs surely has some never-before-heard stories that he can share with fans.
4. Will College Conflict With Filming?
Riggs was accepted into Auburn University back in November. While he's stated that he'd love to continue doing both the show and classes, he did admit that it would take a lot of cooperation from his professors. He also couldn't comment on whether he was signed on for Season 8. Don't leave us, Chandler! Degrees are useless in the zombie apocalypse anyway.
5. Are You Planning A Guest Appearance On 'Dad's Zombie Road Trip'?
You may or may not know that Chandler Riggs's dad, William Riggs, hosts zombie tours of real Walking Dead filming locations. They even include goodie bags and trivia put together by none other than Chandler himself. The only thing that's missing is, well, Chandler. But is he planning on making a surprise cameo on one of his dad's tours? We need to know!
