Will Negan Be Absent From Season 8 On The Walking Dead?

352

Jeffrey Dean Morgan has tons of credits to his name, but thanks to his role as Negan on The Walking Dead, he’s getting more offers than ever.

In the next year, Morgan will star in a few more films, including the new blockbuster with The Rock, which comes from the SEGA game Rampage.

While the cast and crew behind The Walking Dead do their best to keep the lid on what’s going on during filming, some things still get out. For starters, fans can often find out which actors are on set and how often.

One viewer discovered that Jeffrey Dean Morgan hasn’t been on set very often so far.

The Inquisitor writes:

“A set photo leaked on social media showed the RV that was parked in front burnt to a crisp. There was very little left that resembled a vehicle. Although the buildings seemed intact, it was clear that Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group bombed the Saviors’ home base.”

What is interesting about Negan is that he is known for his brutality. However, there are not that many times he actually goes after people himself. It is possible that he has been inside the Sanctuary coming up with a plan for revenge. In the meantime, he has no problem sending out his people to battle Alexandria, Hilltop Colony, and the Kingdom. One fan mentioned that Morgan is filming a movie.

Not every episode of the show has every character, as greatly shown last season, but the creators said they were trying to show mostly ensemble episodes, rather than individual character studies, which fans didn’t really enjoy last season.

While Negan may be hiding from Rick Grimes, the reason Negan is missing could have to do with Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s busy schedule. Fans won’t really know what’s going on until October when Season 8 returns.

Do you think Rick Grimes will kill Negan this season?
