Coleman and Michael Cudlitz gave Larry their take on how they think “The Walking Dead,” which was just picked up for a 6th season, will end. Michael explained, “Basically they’re going to get to the ocean at some point. They’re going to realize that the entire United States is surrounded by ships from every other country. We’ve caused it. And they’re basically going to be shooting and destroying anyone who tries to get off of our island…And if that is the actual ending, Robert, I’m sorry” (clip below)
