In se 60 hectares of land full of scenery that producer Tom Luse shows to this newspaper as if it were a "private amusement park" re are sacred places. Even for cast. "That's where Negan murdered Glenn and Abraham," marks a place orwise desolate, where before was Church of Gabriel, now dismantled, and where at moment real threat is insects and or creatures that brought to area Hurricane Irma in August Re. "I'm not joking, re I found a tarantula size of a dish," recalls Reedus.

The actor who embodies Daryl admits he doesn't know what awaits him in future of series. "Everything is more and more secret."

In earlier statements, author of comic that initiated this zombie apocalypse indicated his hope of lasting at least a hundred or episodes, which would lead to Walking Dead to season number 13. Is re so much life in se dead people? Judging by ratings, that's what it looks like. The same goes for understanding energy with which you work on set.
