“The Walking Dead” Cast Call for fan show, “Talking Dead”
Do you love “The Walking Dead“? Are you a “Walking Dead” super fan that would love to preview the show before everyone else? If so, here is a chance to come watch the show discussed live with the show’s stars and producers. “The Walking Dead” season 7 is about to premiere which means “Talking Dead” is coming back too.
New episodes of ‘The Walking Dead” return this week and fans will finally get to find out which cast member we have lost. The 6th season’s finale ended with a huge cliffhanger which promised a major character’s death at the hand of newly introduced villain, Negan and his pet bat, Lucille. The show has been very careful to not let the cat out of the bag and even the season 7 previews and teasers do not show any of the cast members in question, rather, the season 7 teaser showcases characters who have yet to be introduced. For months now, speculation about who Negan killed has been all over the internet. Comment sections of fan sites and forums went nuts, some angry fans even swore off the show. Reddit saw threads promising a boycott and there were even petitions created to force show creators to spill the beans…. None of that worked.
Even before the season 6 finale, speculation was rising as spoilers revealed that someone would die. “The Walking Dead” may or may not follow its comic book’s lead. Comic readers know that it may be Glenn on the receiving end Lucille, Negan’s barbed wire wrapped bat, however, show-runner Scott Gimple noted that the series will have “hard left turns” in Glenn’s plot.
Steven Yeun, the actor who plays Glenn also commented… “I know people are going to always go, ‘Negan kills Glenn in the comics,’ but rest assured that we don’t necessarily do what’s in the comics.” If not Glenn, then who? We still do not know for sure who the victim was and the info is coming this week.

“As an enormous fan of both The Walking Dead comic and television show, I pretty much begged for this job,” Hardwick said. “Dissecting the moves of Rick Grimes and the remaining survivors after every episode is something I would be doing with my friends anyway, so the fact that AMC is actually paying me to do so is a bonus.”
