WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
Now that season 7 of The Walking Dead is underway, new details have emerged on who may or may not be killed off by villain, Negan (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
The news comes shortly after characters Glenn (played by Steven Yeun) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) met their fate with Negan’s barbed-wire wrapped baseball bat during the season 7 premiere.
“We wanted to send a message that we are just getting started,” Robert Kirkman, executive producer of the series, said.
Although Maggie (played by Lauren Cohan) is expecting a child in the series, that doesn’t necessarily means she’s safe from Negan’s potential harm, especially considering she threatened him following her husband Glenn’s death. Unfortunately, Lauren hasn’t been seen much on set this season, and various social media posts indicate the actress was vacationing during the time of filming.
Spencer (played by Austin Nichols) may have the most obvious fate — at least to fans of the comic book series. In the comic, Spencer asks Negan to kill Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln on the televised series), but many suspected the villain to backstab Spencer and kill him instead. The actor warns viewers that anything could happen this season, which includes going off-script from the comic, “You never know what happens on the show,” he said “Things change.”
The season 7 premiere finished with character Daryl (played by Norman Reedus) being dragged off by Negan’s men, which led fans to believe he’s next to die. Norman, on the other hand, has a different fate in mind for his character, “I’d like him to just walk away into the woods,” he said. “He came in that way, I think he should go out that way.”
