And yet, that’s just what we got when EW.com asked Scott Gimple of The Walking Dead about Rick and Negan in Season 8. The Walking Dead is no stranger to villains overstaying their welcome (hello, Governor, and your army 2.0), so how long Negan will stick around is definitely a question that’s been on our minds. Clearly we’re not the only ones, because EW.com asked outright, and the answer Read more »
