Will Negan Show Up Less In The Walking Dead Season 8?

Will Negan Show Up Less In The Walking Dead Season 8?

Of all the new characters that The Walking Dead fans got to know in Season 7, nobody ranked higher in importance or impact than Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan. (Sure, he first came in during Season 6, but barely.) The AMC show’s current embrace of the comic series’ All Out War storyline would almost necessarily mean that Negan will be a huge part of Season 8, but that might not entirely be the case, as Morgan apparently hasn’t been seen around the Walking Dead set since the filming of the premiere. Take note that all manner of explanations could exist here, Read more »

‘The Walking Dead’: Danai Gurira Talks Rick and Michonne’s Surprising Choice

Valentine’s Day came a week late to “The Walking Dead.” Fans have watched Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) develop a strong friendship over the past four seasons, but the possibility always existed that they could become more than friends. That possibility became a reality in tonight’s episode — set two months after the death of Rick’s former flame Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge), the loss of Carl’s (Chandler Riggs) eye and the rebuilding of Alexandria as a fierce walker-fighting community.

‘The Walking Dead’ Creator Robert Kirkman: John Bernecker’s Death Was “A Freak Accident”, Season 8 Themes – TCA

The tragic death of stuntman John Bernecker on the set of The Walking Dead on July 13th sent shockwaves through the industry and today at TCA, Executive Produer Robert Kirkman addressed what happened.

Could The Walking Dead Visit Other Parts Of The World? Here’s What Scott Gimple Says

The Walking Dead is one of the biggest shows on television, and AMC will probably keep it going for as long as possible. There are still plenty of stories in the comic source material that haven’t yet been explored, and the series has already proved that it’s not afraid to deviate from published plots. One very different direction for the show would be if the characters went to explore different parts of the zombie apocalypse. Rick and Co. have spent most of their time either in Georgia or in Virginia. Showrunner Scott Gimple recently appeared at a San Diego Comic-Con Read more »

What The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan Doesn’t Like About Negan

As The Walking Dead’s central baddie Negan, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan inspires a tidal wave of dread every time he’s on the screen, and the actor has gleefully brought to life the character’s morally bungled approach to survival.

Check out his answer, which was delightfully prefaced by his favorite thing about Negan. Negan being a cold-blooded killer? That’s not something that makes it to the top of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s “Cons” list concerning his latest TV Read more »

Would The Walking Dead Ever Kill Rick Grimes?

Would The Walking Dead Ever Kill Rick Grimes?

Yes, it’s an almost unspeakably ludicrous question: Would The Walking Dead actually kill off its main character? During Sunday’s episode, though, I started to wonder if it could really happen. After all, there’s been plenty of foreshadowing—and perhaps more importantly, it might just be time for Rick to go, no matter how hard that might be for some die-hard fans to hear. More discussion ahead, but first, your usual spoiler warning. Rick is a certified badass with a hatchet and a generally kind human being—a role model, the person you’d hope to emulate should our world ever descend into undead Read more »
