April 3, 2016 will be a date long remembered by fans of The Walking Dead – regardless of what the Powers That Be over at AMC are cooking up for season 7’s premiere in October.
For it was here that Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan staged his scene-stealing showdown with our band of survivors, indulging in some warped mind games as season 6 neared its climax. Offering a new perspective on that scene in question, AMC has promised to include an uncensored version of the finale in the eventual Blu-ray release, and it appears one lucky fan has got his or her hands on the home video release ahead of time to shed light on that NSFW cut.
It’s currently live on YouTube (via CBM), but will likely be pulled soon by AMC, so be sure to have a gander while you still can.
Looking ahead to The Walking Dead season 7 and according to Greg Nicotero, even beyond the showdown with Negan, things will get “much worse” before they get better for Rick Grimes and Co.:
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. 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.
British thesp Andrew Lincoln returns as Rick Grimes, flanked by a cast that is comprised of Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Steven Yeun, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Sonequa Martin-Green, Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, Christian Serratos and Khary Payton as Ezekiel.
AMC will host The Walking Dead season 7 premiere on October 23. Will you be tuning in?
