Kirkman, never one to provide any real spoilers, recently sat down at a National Association of Broadcasters conference and gave a scant few details on what's ahead for the return of The Walking Dead later this year. We're sure more details will be released as the premiere of Season 6 edges closer, but right now all we really know for sure is that Rick and Morgan's late Season 5 reunion won't come to a quick end. Expect to see these two bros together for the long haul.
Kirkman admitted the reunion was a big deal, and promised it would take up a good chunk of the upcoming season. However, he also reminded fans that things may not be as they once were. Since Morgan and Rick parted ways, the two survivors have each been through a lot and have changed significantly. Those changes could have a huge impact on the dynamics of their relationship.
"Now it’s a very different Rick and a very different Morgan who are going to have a completely different relationship," Kirkman explained. "And it’s the questions of how they’re going to interact, how they’re going to work together — if they’re going to work together — and what comes from those interactions is going to be basically the spine of Season 6."

What else did Kirkman share? Only that big things are ahead for Glenn as well. He promised "a lot of cool stuff" ahead for everyone's favorite survivor. But when the question of Glenn's mortality came up, he remained tight-lipped. Kirkman and the rest of the gang have a way of killing off our favorite characters, so anything short of a promise to keep Glenn alive brings about so much stress! Steve Yeun, who plays Glenn, was also on tap for the conference and was quick to come to the defense of TWD's murderous ways. He pointed out that any time they kill off a main character, the showrunners do it in a way that has real meaning. "So if it were [time] for Glenn to go," Yeun said, "then it’s probably going to be awesome."
