Yes, you read that headline correctly. And, judging from the comments that you’ve been leaving beneath our Fear the Walking Dead recaps, we’re gonna guess that right about now you’re scoffing and rolling your eyes.
RelatedWalking Dead: Ezekiel, The Kingdom Poised to Join the Negan Fight
Nonetheless, there is a case — a strong case, in fact — to be made that the Walking Dead prequel has gotten good, is getting better and is showing signs that it will eventually become every bit as gripping as the monster smash off of which it was spun.

The Walking Dead is going to get very interesting, and just a bit strange, in Season 7. As previously reported, it is all but confirmed that Rick and his crew of Survivors will meet up with King Ezekiel and The Kingdom. TVLine reports that casting is already underway for this fan-favorite character from the comic books. And his introduction in The Walking Dead TV show might be more anticipated than Negan himself.
A casting call has gone out for a character called Augustus. But this is just a clever coverup for the real character this particular actor will be playing. Augustus is described exactly as one would describe King Ezekiel, and it's kind of hard to hide what the popular AMC show is about to do. Ezekiel is the self-proclaimed King of The Kingdom. He is called 'flamboyant and wise, nice and weird.' Most important, he will serve as an »
Warning: contains spoilers for The Walking Dead seasons 1-6. And gory images. Ugh.
Hairdressers exist after the undead apocalypse. We know this to be the case in The Walking Dead not only because we met one—Rick’s ill-fated girlfriend Jessie—but because the majority of characters have been able to maintain some kind of post-global destruction ‘do. Carol has a pixie crop. Daryl sports a complicated homage to Link from Zelda, and you could happily roll marbles around on Abraham’s flat-top all the live-long day.
One character though, has thus far defied the scissors: Carl Grimes. And now, after the events of season 6B, we know why.
“There’s a reason why [Carl’s] hair’s so long,” VFX veteran and director Greg Nicotero said in this Kimberley Potts interview. »
We've got a fever, and the only known antidote is more fresh episodes of The Walking Dead. Unfortunately, we have to wait until October for those, so for now we have to settle for hints that the actors and producers have given us. Because we don't know who dies on the finale (or do we?), most of the actors have been very tight-lipped about what to expect on season seven, but Jeffrey Dean Morgan (aka Negan), Andrew Lincoln (Rick, who we basically know doesn't die), and the producers have been giving some very telling interviews. We already rounded up everything they've said about Negan's upcoming story arc, but here's what you need to know about what's up with season seven in general - apart from all the details we already have. »

There are only a handful of people who know the identity of Negan's victim in The Walking Dead Season 6 finale. And Greg Nicotero's parents aren't among them. The executive producer and director of this upsetting episode, titled Last Day on Earth, is being literally bombarded by fans from around the world demanding that he reveal the truth. But he's keeping his mouth sewn shut. And that's caused a lot of anger to be pointed directly his way. Even in his own family. He tells EW how frustrated his mom and dad were after watching The Walking Dead finale to end all finales.
"My mom and dad called this morning and they were like, 'We had nightmares last night. You gotta tell us who it is.' My mom pulled the whole, 'Gregory, this is your mother, you need to tell me who dies.' I'm like, 'Mom I'm not allowed to tell you that. »
For the next several months, there will be one question on the minds of The Walking Dead fans: who did Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) kill? After almost all of Season 6 lead up to our first glimpse at this iconic villain in the season finale, we finally got to see the Saviors' leader in the flesh. Just like his introduction in the comic, Negan uses his baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, dubbed Lucille, to kill one of the Alexandrians in the finale's last moments. But the victim's identity was hidden from the audience. ComicBook.com recently spoke to series star Andrew Lincoln, who teased that the entire cast made a pact not to discuss the victim's identity.
"We kind of made a pact with each other, just because personally and professionally one of us is going. These people are lovely, dear friends. Including myself one of us is gonna get it. »
The final eight episodes of AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 6 featured some of the show’s most violent and dark moments yet, but as many behind-the-scenes photos show, that didn’t stop the cast and crew from having a good time on set. [Spoiler Warning for those who haven’t watched Season 6b.]
Following the big cliffhanger of the Season 6 finale, fans will have to wait around six months to find out who was on the receiving end of Negan’s barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat, Lucille. For those that missed it or want to watch it again, we’ve included the ending clip of the finale below, as well as a retrospective video on Season 6.
The Walking Dead: The Complete Sixth Season will be released on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD on August 23rd from Anchor Bay Entertainment. Details on special features and the separate limited edition version have not been unveiled, but we’ll keep Daily »

In the Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead that aired on Sunday night, fans got their first glimpse at two unique, yet unnamed characters, who come across Morgan (Lennie James) and Carol (Melissa Suzanne McBride). Given the unique costumes they were wearing, many fans familiar with Robert Kirkman's comic books are speculating that these characters belong to another group of survivors known as The Kingdom. During a new interview with ComicBook.com, showrunner Scott M. Gimple teased that those characters may or may not have been from The Kingdom, while hinting that fans may see an actual live tiger on the show in Season 7.
"Those guys may or may not have been from The Kingdom. We may or may not see The Kingdom. If we do see The Kingdom, it'll be a big reveal and it'll be another new world to inhabit and explore. Can we have a real tiger? »
A show with great ratings, The Walking Dead's large audience grew last season so there's essentially no chance that this AMC series will be cancelled for quite awhile. How soon will it be renewed for a seventh season? Stay tuned.
On The Walking Dead, a group of humans struggle to survive and adapt to a world that's filled with zombies. This season, the large cast includes Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lennie James, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Sonequa Martin-Green, Michael Cudlitz, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Tovah Feldshuh, Alexandria Breckenridge, and Austin Nichols. Which actors will be around for season seven?

The Walking Dead Season 6 finale has everyone talking and I caught up with Andrew Lincoln to get his thoughts on the filming of that final scene. Looking back at Season 6, he also discussed his favorite episode of the season, catching up on the comic book series, and planning payback for Norman Reedus’ recent pranks.
Seeing the group on their knees in front of Negan was one of the most intense moments of the comic book series and that sense of helplessness really translated well to the TV series. What was your impression of that scene when you first read the script?
Andrew Lincoln: When I read the script, I felt this incredible frustration, powerlessness, and dread. Greg Nicotero was very keen on making a slow and dripping dread that suffocates Rick and the audience as the episode progresses. Everything Rick has worked, fought, and killed for over the last »

Here be spoilers for The Walking Dead season 6B. Nb: interview took place before the finale had aired
For any self-respecting horror fan, Greg Nicotero is a legend. Cutting his early blood-stained teeth working as a makeup artist under Tom Savini and George Romero, he’s worked (as you’ll read below) with just about every great genre director and has gone on to become, for many of us, the strongest episode director of The Walking Dead.
In town to talk all things walker-related, we sat down to discuss the fusion of his directorial style with his superlative and endlessly creative special effects. His enthusiasm for his work was a joy to behold and you suspect that given free rein, he could talk endlessly about his experiences »
As hard as the last 11 minutes and 19 seconds of The Walking Dead’s sixth season finale may have been on us, they were even harder on the cast: Negan’s debut took “a very emotional two nights” to complete, according to the bat-wielding villain’s portrayer, Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Showrunner Scott M. Gimple goes so far as to call the shoot “unbelievably emotional. Even though it was freezing cold [and] these actors were on their knees pretty much the entire time… [they] knew that someone would die, [so] everything [was] incredibly loaded… »
Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Walking Dead” Season 6 finale, titled “Last Day on Earth.”
After a full season of teasing the arrival of arch-villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), showrunner Scott M. Gimple and crew delivered a chilling introduction that built to the death of one of nearly a dozen key characters from the show. But who Negan actually killed in his first scene was left up in the air — a secret the show will try to keep until the next season starts up in October.
Variety spoke with Lincoln about filming the scene, why he said the finale’s script made him “physically sick,” parallels between Rick and Negan and how the cast handled another loss from their ranks, without knowing who they were mourning. »

The Walking Dead Season 6 finale featured one of the most pivotal scenes yet, and in case you missed Negan and Lucille’s introduction, AMC has released the ending clip online, while executive producers Scott M. Gimple and Gale Anne Hurd reflected on the finale (and its cliffhanger) and looked ahead to Season 7. [Spoiler Warning for those who haven’t watched the Season 6 finale.]
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Gimple mentioned that the beginning of Season 7 will help show why they ended the episode without revealing who was killed by Negan and his barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat, Lucille:
“I hope with 701 people see that it justifies the way we’ve decided to tell the story. I know what 701 is and I feel that it delivers on what 616 sets up.”
Gimple emphasized that someone did indeed die at the end of the finale and that it will have a big impact on the survivors regardless of who was on the receiving end of »

(Spoiler alert: Do not keep reading if you have not seen the Season 6 Finale of “The Walking Dead”) “The Walking Dead” fans are still smoldering over the cliffhanger ending of the Season 6 finale, but series star Andrew Lincoln thinks the episode did exactly what it was supposed to do. “I’m sorry the fans are angry about it because I think it’s a very thrilling and shocking way to leave a season,” Lincoln told TheWrap. “People have four or five months to recover from that. And conversely, from a writing standpoint, it’s daring what they’re doing. As a returning episode, »

Fans had known for months that the Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead would introduce Negan, with Jeffrey Dean Morgan coming aboard to star as the iconic villain from Robert Kirkman's comic books. We first meet Negan after the Saviors had set a trap for Rick and his crew, with Negan picking one member of Rick's crew to kill, as punishment for the slaughter of his men earlier on this season. But we never saw who was killed by this villain. Entertainment Weekly caught up with executive producer Greg Nicotero, who also directed last night's season finale, Last Day on Earth, and he revealed that none of the cast members know who was killed off in the finale.
"No. It was specifically written that way. The Pov shot looking up at Negan in that last moment, I don't think anyone on that knew what happened. As a matter of fact, »
Nothing draws the ire of The Walking Dead fans quicker than episode spoilers being revealed too soon – as any quick browse of social media after an episode premiere will demonstrate. This is understandable – by this point, fans of the show have invested in six seasons of the apocalyptic survival drama and, quite rightly, they want to enjoy the twists and turns in the tale without them first being sullied by loose-lipped viewers.
So, having given people the chance to turn their eyes away if necessary, let’s take a look at some comments actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan made to the press the day after his debut episode – the season six finale, titled Last Day On Earth – finally aired. He addressed his appearance as Negan – the leader of a rival gang of survivors, known as the Saviors – and what he knows about plans for season 7.
“I know that when Season 7 kicks off, »

Finally, we come face to face with supervillain Negan – after a masterful game of cat and mouse that leaves us with a creepy, holy hell of a showdown
Spoiler alert: This blog is published after The Walking Dead airs on AMC in the Us on Sundays. Do not read on unless you have watched season six, episode sixteen (which airs in the UK on Fox on Mondays)
The ever-exasperating The Walking Dead has been teasing the appearance of its huge villain Negan all season, and he finally got the dastardly soliloquy we all knew was coming. He also most likely killed one of our favorite characters, but The Walking Dead being The Walking Dead, we have to wait until next season’s premiere six whole months away to figure out who died.
My money is on Glenn, who Negan killed when he first met the Alexandrians in issue 100 of the comic book. »

Is The Walking Dead trying to kill off its fanbase along with its cast members? Here's our spoiler-filled review of the season 6 finale...
This review contains spoilers.
6.16 Last Day On Earth
When a show's executive producer is taking cues from Lost, is that a good thing or a bad thing? For this half-season, The Walking Dead's actors and crew have promised to leave viewers shocked and dismayed with the season finale, with actors describing being sickened as they read the script. Would this sickening display be translated to the screen in the lurid style that The Walking Dead is known for?
After an odd cold opening featuring a blacked-out screen, lens flare, and whistling, The Walking Dead kicks off its season six finale with Morgan following the clues to Carol. A sign reading “You Are Alive,” a horse missing a rider, a dead body with a crucifix clutched in its hand. »
Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve watched “The Walking Dead” Season 6 finale, Episode 16, titled “Last Day on Earth.” Find out what led our survivors into their dire situation with Negan by checking out last week’s recap here.
Is anyone surprised? After so much speculation, rumor-mongering and myth-making in the run up to Negan’s introduction, the eventual outcome of the “Walking Dead” Season 6 finale couldn’t help but feel like a cop-out, especially in a season that has been loaded with fake-outs and fan-baiting moments, from Glenn’s dumpster dive to last week’s Daryl misdirect.
Purposefully removing an actor’s name from the credits just to rile up fans is cruel and unusual punishment (although it was certainly a savvy strategy in terms of building buzz), but “Last Day on Earth” doubled down on the producers’ penchant for trolling their audience, unmistakably showing us a death, »
