The seventh season of AMC's popular dystopian zombie series "The Walking Dead" is zooming in on its release and it seems like fans are as ready as ever to finally find the answers to the series' season 6 cliffhanger. Which of the series main cast is going to get bludgeoned to death by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and what's going to happen to the survivors now that they're at the mercy of a stone cold and twisted villain? What will Morgan's rendition of Negan be like in the new season?
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly yesterday, actor Norman Reedus talked about what it's like to work with Morgan and what the characters feel like when they're around Morgan on set. Reedus plays the part of Daryl Dixon, a survivor of the zombie outbreak in "The Walking Dead" and one of the main characters in the series.
Comparing Morgan's Negan to the iconic DC villain the Joker, Reedus explained that the series has been on a roller coaster and that the new season shows the main cast at one of their lowest points. The actor also praised Morgan's work on set.
"He's a prick [laughs] but you know, I have to say, Jeffrey's killing it — no pun intended. He's great. He's super charismatic, and he's enjoying being this jerk way too much, as a matter of fact," Reedus said during the interview. "You know, it's a real blessing we have him on the show. He's brought so much new energy to this show, and that character is like the Joker. It has to be great, and he's delivering, and everyone likes him, and he's fun."
Though Negan is the main villain in the new season, it seems like Morgan's character isn't the only one to blame for the death of some the series' main cast members. It turns out, Andrew Lincoln's character Rick Grimes is to take blame as well.
"Listen, Rick Grimes thinks he's got a handle on things," executive producer Greg Nicotero explained on Express. "He thinks he knows what's in store for him out there. He thinks he knows that he can take on anybody that comes in his way.
