Shows with long-term goals, especially adaptations like The Walking Dead , are able to hit narrative strides in late seasons where it’s far more common for series to get worse with age. For fans of the comic book and bloody mayhem in general, Season 6 is almost guaranteed to be the show’s most action-packed installment yet, and showrunner Scott Gimple is jazzed to bring out a new batch of comic characters for arcs that will feature his and Kirkman’s brand of remixed plotting attached, as well as some stuff the comics didn’t get too far into.

Gimple told EW that he’s hesitant to share specifics on who we’ll be seeing come up throughout the season, and that there are “minor remixes” but “some direct stuff from the comic as well, as far as these characters go.” And so here are our five picks for what characters viewers can expect to make their way into Season 6. Some spoilers ahead.

Paul Monroe
Whether they call him Jesus or not, the resourceful Paul Monroe’s presence should be felt soon after Season 6 begins this fall. A simple amount of remixing could be done to have him be the guy who turned Morgan into the calmer person that we were following in Season 5. And that would get them into what Gimple says will be “some direct comic stuff in the second half of the season,” which would bring Rick and the rest of this character crew to the next location, with all the drama that entails. Also, this could be one of the best characters the show has ever delivered.
