Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan is a force to be reckoned with.
He’s a sadist, an unhinged psychopath, and a calculating leader; but he’s also one of the more compelling villains that The Walking Dead has seen in years. First introduced at the tail-end of season 6, Negan arguably hit his stride during the somewhat contentious “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be,” when he lined up Rick and his ragtag crew before brutally executing Glenn and Abraham.
It was a heartbreaking moment for TWD fans around the world, but it might not necessarily be the end of those two aforementioned characters. We’ve already heard that Steven Yeun, who played Glenn, would be open to a return in the future and now Michael Cudlitz, who portrayed Abraham, has said the same.
Talking to Cinema Blend in an interview to promote the show’s recent season 7 Blu-ray release, the actor was asked if he’d like to come back one day, and here’s what he had to say:
I would strongly consider whatever the show came at me with at any point. I had a great experience with the show. As long as they keep telling stories the way they’re telling them, which I feel is amazing, I’d be open to anything as long as it worked with my schedule, obviously. I’m on the other side of [the show’s current story]. But I would certainly come back and play if they wanted me to.
Continuing on, Cudlitz noted that thanks to the flashbacks we see on the show, making a return would definitely be possible:
I think that any of that stuff, that origin story, or why people are making certain decisions. You could trace it back to our earlier group if that helps, do that. That could certainly be explored, and the audience would love it, because that’s how we tell the stories. It wouldn’t be something that was manufactured just to bring characters back. We do flashbacks on the show. We have since the beginning. So yeah, all that is definitely a possibility. There’s another character that I think would be back before me. But who knows?
The Walking Dead will be back on AMC for its eighth season on October 22nd. As expected, Glenn’s legacy will continue to burn bright despite the death of Steven Yeun’s fan-favorite, and those seeking answers for that Old Man Rick scene should pay close attention to the premiere, as it’s said to provide some.
