Photo & Teaser of Negan Released Before “Walking Dead” Season 6 Finale
From major character deaths to discovering a larger world than their own, Season 6 of The Walking Dead has been a roller coaster ride of emotions and turmoil for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group of survivors. And after 15 grueling episodes, all of the built up tension involving the Saviors will come to pay off when we finally meet their ringleader, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
We haven’t seen a villain on The Walking Dead who has come close to the sadistic, psychopathic nature of Negan. Not the Governor of Woodbury, the Wolves, or even the cannibals. Fans of The Walking Dead have been anticipating his arrival ever since issue 100 of The Walking Dead was published in 2012. Even series’ lead Andrew Lincoln, who spoke with Entertainment Weekly, is excited for fans to witness the coming of Negan:
“I read the script and I went, ‘This is the greatest entrance ever written.’”
The series has been teasing his introduction for some time now. After last weekend’s nail-biting episode, with the fate of one major character on the line, the season finale preview provided a short clip of the villain as well.
Do you think Negan will be the most menacing threat the survivors have ever faced? Will Lucille make a new friend this weekend? Let us know in the comments section below!
The Walking Dead also stars Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, Steven Yeun as Glenn Rhee, Lauren Cohan as Maggie Greene, Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes, Danai Gurira as Michonne, and Melissa McBride as Carol Peletier among others.
