Finally, fans of “The Walking Dead” are getting their first look at Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and he’s already enough to haunt your nightmares.
As the zombie-infested series rockets toward its Season 6 finale, the threat of Negan — the most notorious baddie from the graphic novels — is finally being realized. If you can’t wait that long though, an international trailer for the episode has been released giving you the very first look at the villain and his signature weapon — a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire named Lucille.
“Hi, I’m Negan,” he says ominously from the shadows, while camera get a very deadly look at Lucille.
The question of exactly who’s going to become close personal friends with Negan remains. With the season finale likely comes a major cast death. The series has seemingly set up Carol as the possible victim — which goes against what happens in the comics — but just about anyone is fair game. Except Michonne (Danai Gurira), because only a monster would want to take her off of TV.
You can take a look at the trailer above and a few still images of Negan and Lucille below. “The Walking Dead” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
