If you thought a respite from terror was coming on The Walking Dead, well, it’s not. Jeffrey Dean Morgan told Howard Stern that in addition to returning to TWD this season, the supremely evil Negan will indeed be on hand to torture Rick and company into season eight of the show as well. Dean’s exact words were, “I know I will be on board for season eight,” and “We’ve finished [season seven] a week ago. The next two, I’m really big in. I’m fucking heavy in those.” So brace for a really “fucking heavy” pair of episodes before the mid-season break. Let’s just thank our lucky stars Negan isn’t real, because otherwise he would probably stand a good chance at being appointed as the secretary of Homeland Security.
