As part of EW’s ongoing effort to ensure that you know absolutely everything there is to possible know about the new season of The Walking Dead — which debuts tonight, have you heard? — we swung by this weekend’s New York Comic-Con to talk to the cast and crew behind the brain-smashing TV series. We learned about some of the difficulties of shooting the new season. (Who knew that shutting down a stretch of the Atlanta highway would be so difficult?) New cast member Lauren Cohan also gave us the down-low on the post-apocalyptic dating scene. We put it all on video, the better to communicate these valuable lessons to our illiterate post-apocalyptic descendants. Check it out! (Warning: Mild, non-fatality plot spoilers for those who haven’t read the series.)
