According to a new report, AMC has tapped Xander Berkeley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Tom Payne, and Austin Amelio as season 7 regulars, and at least two of them aren't terribly surprising.
The four join the 16 remaining cast from Season 6, bringing the total number of series regulars to 20, an all-time high for the series!
You're warned of potential spoilers for Season 7 of The Walking Dead, as well the comics around Negan's introduction, but where Season 6 finale "Last Day on Earth" practically followed Negan's first comic scene to the letter, the aftermath may turn out every differently. For now, only one thing is sure: there will be more of Negan in the upcoming season.
The Negan arc is also a period of character growth for Carl Grimes.
Looks like we're going to be seeing a lot of Negan... Payne plays Jesus, Amelio plays Dwight, and Berkeley plays Gregory.
The Walking Dead season regulars Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Danai Gurira, Andrew Lincoln, and Chandler Riggs are among those who will be at the 2016 SDCC event, while Chris Hardwick of "Talking Dead" will be the panel moderator. Some fans speculate that whoever is not being spotted in the filming of the hit series may be the same person that Negan killed in the season 6 finale. However, in this particular case, the four dudes who were promoted play characters with major roles in the comic book, and it does seem like the TV show is interested in continuing some of those stories. Later, however, we see Jesus becoming a key player in Rick's group and even offers support to their group after the incident. Who knows how Alpha's death will affect Lydia, but she's already pretty messed up.
The seventh season trailer for The Walking Dead will debut at San Diego Comic-Con on July 22 at the fest's historic Hall H. The Hollywood Reporter, in fact, believes that the debate on who Negan killed will not matter since the outcome will still be same, and everyone will eventually die.
Meanwhile, fans are also waiting to see the casting for the comic book character 'Ezekiel.' The revelation is expected to happen soon as the series gears up to introduce another community, The Kingdom. Let us know in the comment section below!
