Homme appeared on this week’s panel after-show and took questions from fans. Watch in the clip below.
Viewing figures for The Walking Dead have plummeted in the US since the opening episode of season seven.
The premiere debuted to 17.1 million people, and became the second-highest rated episode in the show’s history. Since then, the number of Walking Dead viewers has declined. The fifth episode of the season drew less than 11 million viewers.
It’s the first time the show has had less than 11 million viewers since season three. The reason for the decline is unclear but one theory is that fans are not happy with the format of the season, with each episode jumping to a different story and set of characters.
It was also recently confirmed that The Walking Dead has been renewed for an eighth season. Season Eight will premiere in late 2017, kicking off with the show’s 100th episode.
