“We’re sort of opening a new chapter”
By Jay Hunter – Although in AMC’s The Walking Dead, there’s a ‘trinity’ of characters, widely regarded as the main personalities show (Daryl, Glenn, Rick), it’s undeniable that the latter of the three is the shows traditional main character. However, it seems that’s now set to change in season seven, with Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan coming to the fore. In previous reports, we’ve stated that Morgan expects to be around for a couple of years, which makes sense considering what producer, Greg Nicotero recently said whilst speaking to Deadline:
“I mean, it’s really, Rick is now, if you really think about his journey in the comic books, he shares the spotlight with Negan in the comic book. Negan now has some ownership over what the show is about”
Season seven will act as a passing of the guard as the show enters a new phase, so those hoping for it all go back to normal after we find out who Negan murdered, we’ve got some bad news, as Nicotero went on to say:
“I think it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better for our group, and it’s pretty intense. I mean, the show, we’re sort of opening a new chapter”.
