Great news, Walking Dead fans! Entertainment Weekly just released some exclusive looks at the new season, and they're amazing! According to Andrew Lincoln, we're in for a rough ride for the upcoming season.
“We’re really earning our rating this season,” says Lincoln. “There are families that watch it together, but just so it’s on the record, guys—it’s a grown-up show this season.”
These collectible covers are pretty badass and they definitely reflect the rumored intensity of the season to come. They also include a little nod to being snubbed at the Emmys which is great. Ch-ch-check 'em out!
Here's Daryl looking like he's getting a running start to jam those arrows down some walker's throat!
I'm not really sure about why Glenn and Maggie didn't get their own covers. Is this some kind of foreshadowing? In any case, they look pretty scared...
Awwww yeah, Michonne! She looks so awesome on this cover! The layered images look especially great with her sword. This girl is deadly from all angles!
Rick looks pretty scary here. I mean, we know he's no longer the do-gooder officer that he once was. This might look tame after he ripped out someone's jugular with his TEETH, but this fist/face combo is no joke. Nobody puts Rick in a corner!
Am I more excited for the story, or nervous for the characters? I don't even know anymore. We've already lost so many *weeps silently*. Really though, l can't wait to see how the Grimes gang gets out of this, to learn the Terminus backstory and hopefully find out what happened to Beth!
Guess we'll just have to keep speculating until [The Walking Dead](series:201193) premieres on Sunday, October 12, at 9 p.m.
