More Details On Negan’s First Appearance In AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’

The Walking Dead returns to AMC on February 14 to start the second half of season six, but when will we see the first appearance of Negan?

“His name has been invoked and his group is certainly of growing importance, but it’s not like we are going to see him starring in an episode right off the bat,” said showrunner Scott M. Gimple.

TV Insider is reporting that you won’t actually get to see Jeffery Dean Morgan as Negan until the very last episode of the season on April 3. Executive producer and creator Robert Kirkman has stated Negan’s first appearance is “bone-chilling.”

“He is the darkest incarnation of a bully. He’s a very magnetic character; he isn’t just a sociopath. He is the star of his own movie,” said Gimple.

Kirkman also talked about the direction for the second half of the season.

“This is a huge turning point for Rick and the group, because there’s a lot of chaos and it’s very brutal. This is not the end of Alexandria, but we’ll see a different Rick Grimes as he faces possibly the biggest hardships ever,” said Kirkman.

Who do you think Negan’s first victim will be?
