"Walking Dead" fans are eagerly awaiting the return of the AMC drama, especially because they are dying to find out which cast member new villain Negan wrote out of the show, permanently. While Entertainment Weekly's current "Walking Dead" coverage won't spoil that surprise, it does offer up a new cover photo featuring Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the leather-clad and cursing bad guy. And, appropriately enough, Morgan said that Negan's debut on the show will be a "reset on The Walking Dead world. It's f-ing Negan's world now."
The character's a major one from the Image Comics source material, and the show spent much of season six building up to his debut. When season seven arrives this October, there'll be plenty of Negan, Morgan warns.
"What you're going to see in the first half of this season is Negan wreaking havoc," said Morgan. "And some of your characters that you've grown to love are not going to be on the show anymore, and it's going to end badly for them. It's going to be a whole new beginning for The Walking Dead. Really, we've taken the show and just flipped it upside down. It's a different show now. It's going to have a different feeling. You're going to see your favorite characters in a position that they've never been in before, which is super vulnerable and victimized."
