Robert Kirkman’s seemingly endless “The Walking Dead” comic continues to shamble on, much like AMC’s adaptation heads into its sixth season.

And while the “Walking Dead” series has creating its own timeline of events and characters, showrunner Scott M. Gimple reveals that the sixth season will reveal the original to the ongoing Image comic series.

“I think there’s a really cool aspect to the first half of the season that serves almost as a prequel to some direct comic stuff in the second half of the season,” he tells EW. “I think there’s a way that Robert did some of the story that we’re reaching that had a real past to it, where people are referring to some things in the past in the comic. And we’re able to portray some of that backstory in some ways that you didn’t get to see in the comic.”

And while we’ll get to see some of the past, there’s a strong focus on the future.

Season 5 ended with Rick seizing control of Alexandria, but it’s unclear if they’ll stand behind him. One thing is for certain, there’s a slew of new characters to be introduced that may or may not become allies. The best part? They will be people you recognize from Kirkman’s comics.

“We have seen Heath on the internet when we announced it. Corey Hawkins is playing him, and he’s terrific and I’m so excited to see him bring Heath to life,” says Gimple. It’s been fun and he dove in with both feet. He’s tough and skeptical when the cameras are rolling, and then when they’re off he’s just like a goofy fan. He’s really, really excited to be there. There are other people that we’re going to see throughout the season from the comics, and I’m excited for people to see it, but I don’t want to tell them now. I think a few minor remixes, but some direct stuff from the comic as well, as far as these characters go.”

“The Walking Dead” returns to AMC this October.
