"I guarantee people will say the show is moving too fast and it's too packed," he said. "'There's too much going on, I can't take it, it's too exciting'.'The Walking Dead' returns on AMC in the US and FX for Ireland and the UK in October.
"Trust me, I know people are going to say that because we are really hitting the ground running... the audience will have to work hard to keep up because we have a very accelerated pace of storytelling."
