So, it’s secure to say that The Walking Dead season finale was successful. The complete ‘Right here’s Negan’ episode centered on the backstory of Negan himself. We bought an origin story for him, discovered what occurred to his spouse, and even how he inherited the bat. It was profitable sufficient that AMC is wanting into doing a Negan spin-off. It’s sort of loopy that this hasn’t been thought of earlier than, with how standard Negan is. I do know the sequence scores’ declined after he was launched however… I don’t suppose that has to do with Negan. I all the time felt like Negan was a powerful antagonist. I felt prefer it had extra to do with the best way The Strolling Lifeless paced its present and baited individuals with repeated ridiculous cliffhangers. Nonetheless, Negan may lastly be getting his spin-off now which is what issues, I suppose. AMC is definitely surveying viewers with a view to gauge the curiosity in a Negan spin-off.
Are you questioning why chances are you’ll not have gotten a survey your self? Properly, that’s as a result of it’s solely accessible should you agreed to submit suggestions by way of AMC Well-liked Culturists. I must also observe they didn’t simply ask a few spin-off. There was additionally an choice within the survey for extra episodes and even only a restricted sequence. I believe any of the choices can be completely positive, although I’d choose a spin-off myself. I do not know how it could work, but when AMC may pull it off it may very well be one thing actually entertaining.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan answered some questions on a Negan spin-off on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “There’s talks. There’s been some talks [about a Negan spin-off]. I believe that, between AMC and the nice people concerned with Strolling Lifeless, they’ve requested if there’s any curiosity on my finish. However I believe they’ve additionally talked to lots of the characters to see who’s concerned with carrying on the story, and never simply Negan. This all sort of took place, this being the final season, took place as a little bit of a shock in the course of the pandemic. And so it was form of a pivot for everyone and the present, storywise and in any other case, so I believe we’ll see. I believe there’s definitely extra story for Negan, I believe he’s turning into extra attention-grabbing in every episode, in reality. So we’ll see.”
You’ll be capable to catch the ultimate season of The Strolling Lifeless beginning August 22 on AMC.
