*Spoilers ahead*

Fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead’s Glenn (Stephen Yeun) may be nervously worrying if he’s currently dead or alive in the show, but if he did survive the zombie attack, the worry might be far from over as Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Good Wife) will be joining the cast as the infamous brutal villain Negan!

The Walking Dead Comics most infamous big bad will make his screen debut in 2016 in the later episodes of the current sixth season, returning again in season 7.

In the comics Negan is the leader of a group known as the Saviours who subjugate other communities in the area for resources in return for their protection against zombies. Negan is most known though for brutally murdering the popular character of Glenn with a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire.

Negan’s arrival has been rumoured for a while … but will Glenn be the victim of the attack? We know the showrunners like to change the characters stories around slightly to add more of a shock factor – plus it would have to be a main character to do the comic scene justice, but this fan is naïvely hoping Glenn has/will survive both his run-ins with death.
