Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick is a pillar of restraint! He was recently on the TODAY show, talking about his many projects, beyond leading AMC’s post-episode therapy session after every hour of The Walking Dead.
The TODAY anchors wanted spoilers from Chris on what would happen in TWD Season 5, which just started filming yesterday. How will they get out of Terminus? What’s next? Even if Chris knew, there’s no way he would be allowed to say and keep his job, but he said he purposely avoids that kind of advance information, even when it’s handed to him.
"I don’t watch ahead. I watch The Walking Dead the same day that everyone else watches it," Chris said. "I don't want to know what’s coming up." They asked how he could possibly resist looking ahead. "It's really hard," he said, "because I have episodes as soon as they are done, so I could actually watch the whole season at once, but then I just don't want it spoiled."
Can you imagine getting to binge-watch TWD Season 5 all at once, way before anyone else? Dream come true. Since S5 just started filming, Chris won’t get his tempting episodes for quite some time, but the TODAY fans told Chris he could just bring the screeners to them. Seriously — just send them here too! We don't mind knowing in advance, although that would ruin the fun of wildly speculating about what's coming next (and then admitting massive failure).
Watch the video below for a lot more from Chris, including the insane (but fun) game called Rich Cat, Poor Cat. Just watch.
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October on AMC.
