It also recently became known that Andrew Lincoln will be returning as a director for The Walking Dead Season 10.
"I’m going back,” Andrew Lincoln. “I’m going back to shadow a director, and my intention is to direct next year.”
It has been reported that Andrew Lincoln decided to leave The Walking Dead to keep closer in touch with his family who lives in the UK, but we see the actor still has the series in his blood.
“I can’t be that far away because I can’t bear it,” laughs Lincoln. “That’s how much I am invested in the show and the continuation of the story.”
New showrunner Angela Kang also previously offered details about the upcoming season.
"We’ll explore what happened as man made objects and structures break down. Infrastructure like roads and bridges are changing and crumbling. And we’ll also explore what happens as resources are getting low," Kang said.
Kang continued: "There’s a fun Western vibe that has emerged. We are going into a period where a lot of the things that we’ve seen in previous seasons have broken down, so they’ve got these horses and carriages that are being drawn around instead of cars. Things are lit with oil lamps. People are using different kinds of weaponry. There’s a real grittiness to it that I think will be fun and fresh for the viewers."
