The Walking Dead‘s second part of season six will premiere on Sunday, February 14, and we’ll try to cover what the actors have shared about what’s coming for the group. We all remember how Glenn’s non-death has been a huge element in the first part of season six, and Steven Yeun opened up about Glenn’s future, and Lauren Cohan discussed Maggie and Glenn’s reunion.
On Maggie’s pregnancy:
“It’s interesting because people assumed that Glenn didn’t know about the pregnancy, that Maggie would have not told him, and she told Aaron. But Glenn has known about the pregnancy since the very beginning. I’m sure it was something that they knew could happen, and they found out when it did, and that’s the type of bond that Maggie and Glenn have, where they tell each other everything.
If you watch the first eight episodes painting that picture over it, Glenn does everything because of that. Everything Glenn does is because of the kid that’s on the way, be it down to even saving Enid, even pressing her to come back with him.”
On Glenn’s arc future:
“I think Glenn’s arc is to continue to fortify that type of lifestyle, so if he makes it back, for it to be about the future, for it to be about the kid, for it to be about making a place for his child, and also becoming the man that should and can raise a child effectively in that environment. What’s been interesting is we’ve seen Glenn grow a lot, and we’re now getting to see Glenn grow as a father, without being one, kind of the precursor of seeing what type of person he is and what he’s made of before it happens.”
On the group’s future:
“I think the group is resilient. The group absorbs people, loses people, but at its core, it’s what brought them together. The survival of all those individual members is pretty much from the fact that they found each other, that they have each other. Oftentimes I watch our show, and I’m like, “This is the most unlikely group of people that have ever existed, people that would never be probably friends in real life, but somehow they got brought together and they got to see that all of them are made of some similar strands.” And that’s a concept that’s always going to prevail in this group and in our show, which is that survival is not an individual struggle, but it’s a group struggle. And you can be lucky and become part of a group such as this, or you might be unlucky and be part of a group that doesn’t care about you or isn’t as functional as this one.”
Lauren Cohan (Maggie) also opened up about Glenn and Maggie’s reunion:

“The reunion is going to be somewhat overshadowed by a lot of other darkness. I think I can say that much. Because they have found each other and just in time to sort of help everybody else in this huge battle that’s continuing. They’re completely underwater right now. We’ve had both of them at the absolute cliff edge of danger and death.”
“We shot that scene and I screamed ‘Glennnnnnnnnnn!’ so much I lost my voice. And then we didn’t quite get it so I did it all over again in ADR. That’s the biggest screaming I’ve had yet in the show.”
