He is coming. You know he will show up. it is just a matter of time. What will be the difficult part is covering up all the F-bombs he drops. Talks came out about Negan showing up on the sixth season of The Walking Dead:
Showrunner Scott Gimple tells EW that Negan appearing is a possibility, but not yet set in stone.
“It’s absolutely a possibility,” he says. “And when I say it’s a possibility, we have a plan in place, but there’s a couple variables for that plan that we’re deciding about. It really depends on a few factors as we move into setting up the last bit of the season story-wise.”
Creator Robert Kirkman weighed in as well, saying that adapting a character like Negan is always a challenge.
“When it comes to characters like The Governor, Michonne, Abraham, and others like Jesus and Negan who are fan-favorite characters in the comics, it’s always a challenge to get it right because it’s those characters—much like Rick Grimes in the beginning—that fans already have a sense of and expectations for. So we’re always careful, and I feel like we’ve done a really good job servicing those fan expectations. Hopefully that trend will continue…if the characters you mention are to appear soon,” said Kirkman.
