The Walking Dead: Danai Gurira Teases ‘Unpredictable’ Season 8 Premiere

The war is on the horizon in the coming season of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Star actress Danai Gurira has recently teased the unpredictability of the upcoming season.

Gurira portrays Michonne on the show and is one of the longest serving characters. In a recent interview she said that, in spite of the predictability of the show, season 8 cannot be depicted in the same way as its predecessors. She said:  ‘It is a deeply different season premiere – deeply, deeply different and unpredictable,’

She also said that the unpredictability of this season will mean we won’t be prepared for it. It’s funny she says this because Game Of Thrones actress Maisie Williams said exactly the think about GoT season 7 after the scripts were released. Danai thinks the same way about TWD, read what she said below:

‘If you thought,  “Well, I’ve seen this, I’ve seen that, so I can be prepared for what’s coming – no, you can’t. You won’t be prepared. We’ve all been knocked clear off our feet, and there’s just so many ways everybody’s story is expanded and deepened and sharpened.

In the past week we’ve had this, and we’ve also had Norman Reedus tease a change in his character Daryl Dixon. Reedus claims Daryl will be going ‘rogue’ in season 8 – Read more here.
