AceShowbiz - Will Negan get killed this season? If it is so, who will kill him? Those are among the most asked questions by "The Walking Dead" fans ever since the villain arrived at the end of season 6 and tortured our beloved characters on the show.
But such resolution to Rick and friends' biggest problem won't come anytime soon. According to %cJeffrey Dean Morgan% himself, he is set to return as Negan in the upcoming season 8. "I know I will be on board for season 8," he said on "The %cHoward Stern% Show" as quoted by ComicBook.com. "We've finished [season 7] a week ago."
The actor also gushed about the character's story arc in the last two episodes of the first half of season 7. "The next two, I'm really big in," he said. "I'm f***ing heavy in those."
On the other hand, rumors have been swirling that Daryl Dixon is the next protagonist character who will die this season. Since %cNorman Reedus% has reportedly signed a new one-season contract, it's now believed that his character will survive this season, but will die in the eighth season.
There are also rumors that Carl Grimes' days are numbered, after %cChandler Riggs%' father hinted at the actor's exit. Responding to this speculation, %cTom Payne% who plays Jesus recently told The Huffington Post, "Carl ... is the future of the comic books, I think. At the end of the day, I think Carl is the guy at the end on the last page, and I don't know if they'll go that way on the TV show, but I think it would be a logical place for them to go. Who knows?"
In the next episode of "The Walking Dead", Carl and Jesus ride from the Hilltop to the Sanctuary in the back of a Savior truck. Showrunner Scott Gimple said of the two characters' different missions, "There are different missions. One of them is an assassination mission and one is more recon, but now they've been thrown together with different missions, and how that plays out with each other we'll see."
"Sing Me a Song" airs Sunday, December 4 at 9 P.M. ET on AMC.
