The Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman has revealed that every season will feature “major deaths”.
The show is known for killing off series regulars, including Shane (Jon Bernthal) and Dale (Jeffrey DeMunn).
Kirkman told Entertainment Weekly, “People would be dying left and right in this kind of situation, and to not portray that in the way we’re doing, it would be completely inaccurate.
He added: “Every season of The Walking Dead is going to have major deaths. There are going to be characters that you’ve fallen in love with that will be taken away from you horribly. And you’re going to be upset about it.
“But hopefully the story is engaging enough that you want to know what happens next and you want to stick around for the next character to die.”
Kirkman previously claimed that zombie drama will “always… be a bloodbath”, while showrunner Glen Mazzara has hinted that there are “certainly deaths coming throughout the [third] season”.
The Walking Dead will return on AMC in October.
