Greg Nicotero has reaffirmed the growing belief that The Walking Dead will outlive us all, per Digital Spy:
[We can] keep it going for as long as [we] want it go on. I love that we show up for work every day as if it was our first day on the job,” he said. That level of commitment from the cast and crew keeps the spirit of the show alive.
As long as that stays alive then we can keep it going for as long as we want it to go on.”
As for how the series, which will chase an eighth season this fall, will ultimately end, he teased:
“I know everybody has an idea about where it will end and I know that [creator] Robert Kirkman has said Rick will die – but eventually everyone will die, so who knows.
This is going to be a really exciting season, there’s some great stuff coming up and the scripts are awesome.”
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the survival status of The Walking Dead…
