‘The Walking Dead’ Showrunner Delivers Potentially Heartbreaking News

Production on The Walking Dead has been temporarily put on hold due to Hurricane Irma, but when it returns, it will no doubt continue filming episodes involving the All Out War between Rick and Negan. In the meantime, showrunner Scott Gimple has made some potential news.

Some context first: We have talked ad nauseam about the time jump this season on The Walking Dead. We’ve seen future Rick in the season eight trailer, and we know, thanks to Robert Kirkman, that the time jump will take place in the season premiere. My guess based on statements we’ve heard from Kirkman and what we know from the source material, is that the time jump will frame season eight. The season premiere will begin with Future Rick, and then it will flash back to all of the events leading up to the eventual time jump.

That time jump presumably will also include other characters on the series, and fans of the series may have a particular interest in one character: Baby Glenn. Recall that Maggie is pregnant on The Walking Dead, so any time-jump longer than a few months (and this one looks like a few years) would necessarily answer the question: Will Maggie have her and Glenn’s baby?
