Long before The Walking Dead had us sweating Negan’s first victim, fans were concerned how AMC might replicate the villain’s colorful language. We’ve seen alternate takes on DVD, but it seems AMC may finally allow Jeffrey Dean Morgan to let a few F-bombs drop in Season 8.
Seven years in, The Walking Dead was bound to conflict with fan-favorites taking other work. AMC’s horror smash usually takes precedence, but according to recent reports, at least three Walking Dead favorites will have reduced roles in Season 8.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan and wife Hilarie Burton are both well known actors and Hudson Valley residents. Morgan is currently one of the most hated villains on TV while Burton is perhaps best known for her time on One Tree Hill.
The Walking Dead has had no shortage of controversy since the brain-bashing arrival of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan, though the series may have inadvertently stoked racial tension as well. U.K. suppliers apparently pulled official merchandise over accusations of racism, though Morgan himself dismisses the controversy with “people are stupid.”
The Walking Dead hasn’t had much time for the major Saviors in its first two 2017 episodes, but that all changes with next Sunday’s “Hostiles and Calamities.” Not only are Dwight and the others finally catching up with Daryl’s escape, but Negan and his newest hostage are officially inbound.
