Norman Reedus Says The Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere Will Be 100% Worth The Wait


Well before the Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead aired, everyone involved with the show promised that the episode would be great, gut-wrenching and bring the audience to tears. And you know what? They were right. It was great. It was gut-wrenching. And it did bring the audience to tears; however, almost all of those tears were shed after the screen faded to black and they realized they would have to wait until next October to find out which unforunate member of Rick's group was thumped to death by Negan's menacing-looking baseball bat, Lucille.

Norman Reedus, who portrays Daryl Dixon on AMC's hit television series, thinks the cliffhanger will be worth the wait. “I will definitely 100-percent say that it’s well worth the wait,” Reedus told TVLine while promoting his upcoming series Ride with Norman Reedus. “It’s large. It’s mind-blowing.”

While fans entertain themselves by trying to guess characters will bite the dust each season, the cast share that same sentiment. “We’re a very tight-knit group down there [on location in Georgia], and we take it very personally, because we’re in it and living it,” Reedus explained. “Every time you see us crying on camera, those are real tears. It’s a whole day of living that s–t.

“And when personal things happen to you, you don’t wander around telling everybody your personal stuff,” he continued. “So for us, it doesn’t feel like just a spoiler, it feels like a moment that really happened. And if there’s a death involved, it’s kinda weird to talk about it. It’s like going to our friend’s funeral or going possibly to our own funeral! It’s not like, ‘Hey, how are you? Want a selfie? Let me tell you about the funeral I was just at… ’”

The premiere of Ride with Norman Reedus will air June 12th.
