Whenever a show chooses to start up a new season, there is something that you can almost universally expect: A time jump to take place. After all, what better way is there to justify all of the actors aging?
Well, we now have a few more details as to just how substantial a jump that we are looking at for the new season of AMC’s monster hit “The Walking Dead.” According to a new report from TVLine, the jump that we are looking at between seasons is somewhere between three months and twelve. This may not be altogether descriptive, but it does provide you with some sort of insight as to what exactly we are going to be looking at here.
As for what could be happening within that span of time, we have a few theories. For one, this could allow for there to be just enough time in order for the Governor to start to get his ducks in a row after his massive failure at the end of last season. Plus, this also gives some of the characters in the survivor camp some time to start to feel as though they have some sort of safe arrangement worked out.
However, there are still some questions as to whether or not the group will start to crack from within. We have already started to see Rick lose it on more than one occasion, and to go along with that, Carl really started to show off his harder side with the shooting that Hershel ratted him out about.
What do you think could be the reason for this time jump? The new season of “The Walking Dead” will premiere this October on AMC, and you can see a video over at this link that takes viewers straight to “zombie school.”
