The Walking Dead Lands on the Cover of Entertainment Weekly

Having released a new image of Glenn and Maggie doing what they do best yesterday, Entertainment Weekly has now revealed that “The Walking Dead” will grace their cover next week. They also spoke with new showrunner Scott M. Gimple about the series and he teased a “new threat” for the characters.

“The new threat is something you can’t just stab in the face,” Gimple says. “You can’t talk sense to it. You can’t make a truce with it. It’s beyond all that. It would be a threat in any world, but in this world it is much more terrifying.”

Could there be a sickness spreading in the prison? Is that why Daryl was sporting a bandana over his face in the last set photo? Sound off with your theories below!

“The Walking Dead” will have a panel at Comic-Con on Friday and we’ll be there, so stay tuned for the play-by-play. The series returns to AMC this October.
