Fans of the "The Walking Dead" are in for a surprise when the show returns to AMC this October.

In a recent sit-down interview with Entertainment Weekly, Andrew Lincoln teased that the upcoming season 6 premiere of the show "is something that people are not going to expect."

"I certainly didn't when I read it," said the 41-year-old British actor who plays Rick Grimes on the hit zombie drama. "And when we filmed it, it just grew and grew and it got deeper and deeper."

Lincoln didn't reveal any plot details about season 6's first episode, but series executive producer Greg Nicotero, who directed the premiere, previously told Entertainment Weekly that the 90-minute episode will start in the middle of a "heightened action sequence" and then allow viewers to put together the puzzle pieces as the season jumps back and forth in time.

Talking about the whole season in general, Lincoln described it as "very big" "ambitious" and "brave."

"There are more walkers than we've ever faced before," he revealed. "I think the storytelling is astonishing. [Executive producer and showrunner] Scott [M. Gimple] has kind of picked up very much where we left off and he's spinning 18 principal storylines in an incredibly complicated and cool way."

Lincoln's co-star Norman Reedus also recently praised Gimple for the way he's plotting the show's flow of events.

"Scott is so good at planning for the future and taking little things and making them mean big things later. And you go, 'Oh, that's what that means ...,'" Reedus told Nerdist last month.

"A real mature sort of storytelling has really taken us over right now. It's super interesting and super thrilling," added the 46-year-old actor who plays fan-favorite Daryl Dixon on the series.

"The Walking Dead" season 6 premieres on Sunday, Oct. 11 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
