Nearly two months ago, fans of The Walking Dead were left high and dry when the finale to season six saw the introduction of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s uber-villain Negan and the death of someone who was not revealed then. Good news as now we won’t have to wait for long to see Norman Reedus back on AMC with his new unscripted motorcycle series, Ride with Norman Reedus, which will debut on June 12.

However, it will not be until October for us to know who survived the cliff-hanger in Walking Dead season six as season seven hits the screen. Asked how often he has been asked on the identity of the character who died, Reedus noted that it was about a ‘zillion’ times. “Like, all the time.” He nonetheless notes that if it were him in the predicament of not knowing, he would rather not know.

“I don’t like spoilers, to be honest, I don’t want people to tell me the ending to the movie when we sit down in a movie theater. I don’t like them, so I don’t do them. I like the enthusiasm behind everyone wanting to know, but it’s a good feeling to have that enthusiasm, so let’s hold onto it.” Reedus feels that the movie achieved what it was intended to achieve by getting people to talk, when asked if he was surprised by the outrage on the social media following the mystery.

“I’ve been making art for a long time and you want people to talk. Sometimes you make something just to get people to talk. The fact that people are still talking is a huge compliment to how that episode was executed and the acting in it and the writing of it. That’s a good thing. Talk sometimes is good. I know we all have phones and everything is instant gratification now. I get it. I like that too. I like the controversy, to be honest. For that many people to be that invested in that show and freaking out, I think it’s great.”

Reedus is convinced that the planet will ‘explode’ adding that he feels season seven is good. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Reedus said, “Every time we go on a promotional tour talking about what’s going to come, we all say ‘Oh my God, it’s amazing. I can’t wait for you to see it.’ But it continually surprises me how this show grows and is put together and the execution of it—no pun intended. It blows my mind. It just continually reaches a new plateau every single time, and this is the highest plateau we’ve ever been. So just wait. It’s worth the wait, trust me.”
