AMC’s The Walking Dead unveils new TV show poster & promotes season 5 additions to season 6 regulars. AMC has released a key art image for its season 6 roll out of TWD. The image depicts law-man-turned-near-warlord Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), embedded within the series logo initials, seemingly settling into his new role: man of the Watchtower. Now, I try not to read too hard into the tea leaves of threadbare images; but if I were to do so, here, I’d say Rick – still sporting the bandages that came with his new role – is either surveying damage done, in/ around Alexandria, trying to get eyes on the ones responsible, or bracing for trouble after causing it.
TWD official season 6 image:
Whatever the case, Rick seems destined to watch over Alexandria for a while – something that might not sit too well with fans more partial to the show’s on-the-road dynamic. Rest assured, then, that Rick’s holdover will not be allowing too much room for domestication. Season 5 complications, in the form of Deanna Monroe (Tovah Feldshuh), Spencer Monroe (Austin Nichols), and Jessie Anderson (Alexandra Breckenridge), will become series regulars.
While Morgan (Lennie James) has certainly earned regular status, in his own right (to say nothing of popular demand), the source roles of the previously mentioned three, relative to the Alexandria arc (Deanna being based on one such source character) likely makes their promotion more noteworthy. The show, however, has repeatedly demonstrated its ability to break with source canon.
Translation: where TWD is concerned, job promotion does not equal job security.
The Walking Dead, season 6, also features Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Sonequa Martin-Green, Lauren Cohan, Seth Gilliam, Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Ethan Embry, Merrit Weaver, Corey Hawkins, Ross Marquand, Austin Abrams, and Michael Traynor. The new season begins Sunday October 11, at 9:00 pm EST, on AMC.
