"The Walking Dead" season six rumors, news and more. AMC

Josh McDermitt and Michael Cudlitz may have leaked the next big character death in season six of AMC's "The Walking Dead." According to Undead Walking, McDermitt, who plays Eugene may have been killed off the show. When McDermitt tweeted about being off the show’s set due to other filming projects, Cudlitz replied to his co-star saying, "Enjoy, I had a blast working with you. (I did)…” 

The past tense wording in the tweet definitely made it seem like Michael may have been saying goodbye to Josh. If Eugene does die in "The Walking Dead" season six, it wouldn't be the most shocking death. The character has had a love/hate relationship with fans although he has been changing for the better for the last few episodes in season five. 

We could definitely be reaching here but the wording does lead us to believe that Eugene is next on the chopping block. We won't know for sure until "The Walking Dead" returns this fall, but until then check out these other nine exciting details about the coming sixth season. 

1. Episode 1 & 2 details revealed - Details regarding the first two episodes of "The Walking Dead" have been revealed. Check them out below: 

THE WALKING DEAD, Episode #601

Director: Greg Nicotero

Writers: Scott M. Gimple & Matthew Negrete

601 Outside Dates: 5/4-5/14

THE WALKING DEAD, Episode #602

Director: Jennifer Lynch

Writer: Seth Hoffman

602 Outside Dates: 5/15-5/27

It's not a surprise to see these writers and directors names on the first few episodes of season six of "The Walking Dead" as they all were heavily involved in season five. Gimple and Nicotero joined forces for the season five premiere, episode nine and the season five finale. Matthew Negrete has several "The Walking Dead" credits to his name, including "Spend," "Consumed" and "Slabtown" from season five. While Jennifer Lynch directed the very popular episode "Spend."

2. Will Glenn die? - Robert Kirkman recently spoke with AMC President Charlie Collier andStephen Yeun (Glenn) at the 2015 National Association of Broadcasters Show, where he got a chance to tease what's next for Rick and the gang.

Kirkman and Yeun briefly discussed the possibility of Glenn's death saying,

“The way that we make the show — the writers and everybody really want to focus on making things poignant and purposeful and meaningful,” Yeun said. “So if it were time for Glenn to go, then it’s probably going to be awesome.”

3. Will Jon Hamm play Negan? - At this point Hamm playing Negan is just speculation. It is just Hamm talking about how he met Robet Kirkman and how it would be cool to play Negan, who is one of the biggest bad guys in "The Walking Dead" graphic novels.

4. Future seasons planned - Executive producer David Alpert said the original comics have given the production crew enough ideas for Rick Grimes and company over the next seven years.

"I happen to love working from source material, specifically because we have a pretty good idea of what Season 10 is gonna be." Alpert told Indiewire. "We know where seasons 11 and 12 [will be]... we have benchmarks and milestones for those seasons if we're lucky enough to get there."

5. Cast and crew tease season six - After the shows season five finale the showrunner Scott Gimple revealed in a note that the next season will be the biggest. The note read: 

"Season 6 for a good while now, humans have been the bigger threat. At the start of our next season, that will change. I said the show reinvents itself every 8 eps, and we’re doing it again, friendos. Now that these characters know they have what it takes to survive, what are they going to do with that power? How will they choose to live? Beyond answering those questions, we’re currently putting into motion some of our most ambitious stuff yet, and things are going to get very big, loud, and scary."

Also in a chat with The Hollywood Reporter Reedus teased the wolves in season six saying, 

"Terminus did horrible things behind the wall; they were a wimpy and in a cowardly way tricked people to going there and then they did their evil business once you got behind their walls. These guys are roamers and they seem like a whole bunch of Daryls gone south who have gone really bad and turned into wolves. They’re probably on the move; I don’t think they’re afraid to butcher people in front of people. They seem different than Terminus; Terminus was more cowardly. They would trick you into coming to Disneyland and then eat you."

6. Daryl's death - In the interview with the wrap Reedus was asked about his characters possible death, which he was not too excited about. 

“I hope my character serves the story of the show. Nobody wants to go on the show, because it’s really fun,” Reedus said. “I think if they ever killed me on the show, I think I wouldn’t want to die. I’d just want to walk up a hill, and walk down a hill. And as I get to the top, a little puppy would come out of the woods and follow me up and over the hill.”

7. Daryl's sexuality - If you didn't know Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) is based off the character Jesus from "The Walking Dead" comics and has been described as a "gay and badass." There were talks during season one that perhaps Daryl would follow that arc. Reedus said he was excited about the direction, although it ultimately did not happen. There is still a chance that perhaps it will someday be a thing and maybe we'll learn more about Darly's sexuality in the coming season.

8. Greg Nicotero teases the wolves - Talking to Melty, Greg Nicotero shared some details about the mysterious Wolves, a group of bandits that is just beyond Alexandria's walls. We're not far off from meeting them. Scroll down for some speculation on the new enemies based on the comics.

Here's Nicotero:

"We set up the Wolves in Episode 16. I love those characters. The fact that you have people that are basically utilizing the people that they kill as ammunition to build a zombie army? We see them in Episode Nine when they get to Noah's neighborhood and we see the 'Wolves not far' in the background, and when the W-man at the beginning says to Morgan, 'Well, we're going to take you, too, but you're not exactly going to be alive,' we realize through the course of the episode that they are setting booby traps everywhere so that they can take people's possessions and then use them as a means to build the walkers in the traps, so it's kind of a diabolical plan."

9. Release date - As for the release date, AMC has yet to reveal the official time season six will premiere but we can make an educated guess. If the show follows its regular trend then we may see it the week of New York Comic-Con, which will make it the earliest season premiere of the series.
