Let’s just say it: AMC’s The Walking Dead has never been better. The show has really reached a creative strike in its sixth season, and as the show reaches its season finale this Sunday it will reach a major milestone.
The show has been teasing the arrival of Negan since the mid-season finale. He’s perhaps the biggest villain from The Walking Dead comics, and the network has announced that actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Extant, The Good Wife) has already been cast in the role. We will finally meet the leader of the “Saviors” in Sunday’s finale. And the big question is: Will everyone make it out alive?
Watch a teaser scene from the episode below.
