11 The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead ended its sixth season with a cliffhanger that left fans thirsting for more.

Executive producers Scott M. Gimple and Robert Kirkman were on Talking Dead after the season finale and dished on the jaw-dropping episode. Gimble said of the cliffhanger ending, “The end of the story is what people saw. And when we reveal who was on the receiving end there, that’s going to be the start of another story. The kickback effects from that, what it makes everyone into, how people react, how the world changes for everyone, that’s the next part of the story.”
