Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
The Season 6 Finale of AMC's THE WALKING DEAD was really well done and packed with excitement, but it ultimately left a sour taste in the collective mouth of fans as we finally saw the arrival of one of the most vicious characters to date in Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The overwhelming fan disappointment comes from the cliffhanger where Negan brutally bashes an unknown cast member over the head with his barbed wire baseball bat named Lucille. Fans will have to wait until the fall to find out who will took that brutal beating.
With such a big cliffhanger looming in the future, it is easy to forget that an brand new season of things are to come after the revelation of Negan's mystery murder.
We have learned that four actors have been promoted from recurring to regular cast members. First up is no surprise, Jeffrey Dean Morgan takes a well deserved regular cast member slot with his character of Negan.
Tom Payne, who portrays the character of Jesus, Xander Berkely who plays the leader of the Hilltop Gregory, and Austin Amelio who brings to life the villainous character of Dwight, will all now be series regulars.
These four join regular cast members Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Michael Cudlitz, Lennie James, Sonequa Martin-Green, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, and Austin Nichols.
A premiere date for the seventh season of THE WALKING DEAD is expected to be announced later on this month at San Diego Comic-Con. Look for the first trailer to be arriving soon as well.
THE WALKING DEAD will return to AMC this fall.
