In advance of The Walking Dead’s midseason return on February 12th, producers dropped a batch of new photos yesterday through EW exclusively. While most of them confirm what we’ve already told to expect (that Rick and Company are gearing up for all-out war), one is particular telling. It shows Rick (Andrew Lincoln) surrounded by a new group of survivors; it’s a tense scene that confirms neither an alliance nor conflict.
Showrunner Scott M. Gimple promised the identity of this crew will be revealed sooner than later:
“I’m just going to say that Rick is going to meet this person and/or persons pretty quickly. The answers are just around the heap. I cannot wait for people to meet this character and to see this actor. There is some formidable fun coming up.”
Check out the pic of Rick making new acquaintances, as well as other images, below.
