The Walking Dead fans saw the introduction of Negan (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in season seven of the AMC show, and he instantly made his mark on the residents of Alexandria. During his first arrival on the show he killed a number of Rick Grimes’ (Abraham Lincoln) team – including Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz).

Negan eventually got out of the situation alive, though, when he was bested in a fist-fight by Rick.

After this, Negan was imprisoned for years, giving him some time to turn over a new leaf.

Since then he has been working alongside Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) to take down the Whisperers’ leader Alpha (Samantha Morton).

But even though Negan has been on the side of good in recent episodes, it looks like his time may be up on the show.

Negan star Jeffrey recently interviewed a number of The Walking Dead cast members on his show, Friday Night In with the Morgans – in which he speaks with actors alongside his wife.

One of these interviews saw Jeffrey talking to Michael Cudlitz – who has now been taken on as a director on The Walking Dead’s season ten, and the upcoming season 11.

During his appearance on the lockdown chat show, the director was quizzed on whether he would put Jeffrey’s character Negan “through the wringer” during his episodes as a form of revenge for killing Abraham.

To which he replied: “No. No. I want to put him through the wringer because it would be fun to watch, but not for revenge.

“That’s the thing, is that people ask this question a lot when we do panels and stuff at conventions and they ask: ‘What was the hardest scene you’ve ever done?’

“We loved that. When you guys think, ‘that was so hard,’ we love being emotionally available and going through things that we haven’t gone through before.

“Or things that we have gone through before in a different way with amazing scene partners.”

While it doesn’t sound like Michael is going to intentionally take down Negan for revenge, it does seem like he wants to make him “emotionally available” whilst “going through” new things.

Negan has survived his ongoing ordeals by the skin of his teeth so far – could his time be up in the upcoming episodes directed by Michael?

Meanwhile, a recent podcast saw the reveal of a secret backstory of Axel (Lew Temple).

Axel star Lew recently spoke to the Talk Dead to Me podcast where he explained the character was originally going to be involved in killing off Beth Greene (Emily Kinney).

He said: “There were some episodes that were written where I do take Beth out into the woods and slaughter her.

“And so we didn’t get to any of those. That was why I kept buttoned-up [in costume], he was gonna come undone and be totally Henry Rollins tattooed.”

Lew went on to add: “The whole thing about being a drug addict was all a facade, the thing about the squirt gun and pistol is all b******t.”

Could other characters have narrowly avoided a similarly gruesome death in the past?

The Walking Dead season 10 is hoped to continue on AMC in 2020.
