Walking Dead’s Michael Cudlitz Breaks Silence About Season Premiere....

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains spoilers for the season seven premiere of “The Walking Dead.

If you watched last night’s season premiere of “The Walking Dead,” then you know the answer to the bloody and brutal question of who Negan killed in the season six finale earlier this year. The episode, titled “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be,” took out not one but two beloved members of the “Walking Dead” cast, taking out Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) and Glenn (Steven Yeun) with many swings of a barbwire-covered baseball bat.

“Look, for anyone who follows the graphic novel, he’s on borrowed time,” said Cudlitz. “Denise took his death graciously two episodes prior… so I think at that point I had gone beyond where he was in the graphic novel. I know [creator Robert Kirkman] always said he was not happy with how he took Abraham out in the graphic novel, so I was curious to see where we go from there. And yeah, I think in the group, he made it very clear to Negan that if he was going to take somebody, take me if it’s going to help protect the rest of the group.”

Of course Abraham was but the first to die, and Negan took out Glenn in retaliation for Daryl punching the villain.

Back in August, Cudlitz teased his character’s final fate and touched upon his character’s borrowed time. “Now we get to see what a world with Negan and Abraham both in it will be like,” Cudlitz said back in August. “That’s something we don’t see in the graphic novels. So a lot of cool stuff happens. For me, knowing that his potential death had come and gone, it was a moment to go, ‘Oh cool, they really aren’t going to stick with what the graphic novel does.’ As a fan of both the novel and the show, it was cool.”

Airing Sundays at 9 pm ET/PT on AMC, “The Walking Dead” stars Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes, Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, Melissa McBride as Carol Peleteir, Lauren Cohan as Maggie Green, Danai Gurira as Michonne and more'''

New "Walking Dead" Character Slated To Arrive in Season 7 !!!!!

SPOILER WARNING: Major spoilers for AMC's "The Walking Dead" (and the Image Comics series it's adapted from) follow.

It seems that every "Walking Dead" fan out there is counting down the days until the season-7 premiere on October 23, especially since it will no doubt be a make-or-break moment for the show. Will the first episode live up to the hype? Was the decision not to reveal the identity of Negan's victim worth it? Or was it just a frustrating troll move? We'll see.

In the meantime, some other details surrounding the new season are coming to light. As reported by Cinema Blend, it looks like the show's producers are casting someone named "Brion." Described as an "educated, poker-faced leader," the role could be either male or female, and would be someone who's trying their damnedest to lead a group of their own to survival.

That means it's likely not going to be any of the Alexandrians, Saviors, or even anyone from The Kingdom. Cinema Blend has several different theories about the mystery character's identity, including the somewhat minor Pete from Oceanside and Magna, who leads the group of drifters encountered by Jesus on the road. They eventually get invited back to Alexandria, although they don't exactly trust Rick and the other leaders of the community.

Another, more controversial theory is that the role is none other than Alpha, the badass, bald-headed, and fairly messed-up leader of The Whisperers. For any non-comic readers out there, they're a tribe of survivors who wear zombie skins so they can walk among the undead and live like animals. It's difficult to imagine the show would cast a male actor in this role, but anything is possible.

If any of these theories comes true, that would mean Season 7's taking a big leap ahead in the timeline established by the comic. That said, it's certainly feasible, since Brion isn't slated to appear until the tenth episode. There's still a lot of time before we'll know for sure.

Three Actors Promoted to Series Regular on "The Walking Dead"!!!!

As revealed by The Hollywood Reporters, three key players in the town of Alexandria have gone from possible zombie fodder to less likely but totally still on the table zombie meal: Tovah Feldshuh, Alexandra Breckenridge and Austin Nichols.

Feldshuh portrays the leader of Alexandria, Deanna Monroe -- a new character based on an existing one from the comics -- while Nichols plays Deanna's son Spencer and Breckenridge plays Rick's potential love interest Jessie Anderson.

As Hollywood Reporter points out, this brings the total number of series regulars on the show up to 18, so it's almost a fair bet to say that some of these regulars won't stay regular throughout all of season six -- unless their zombified corpse appears in every episode following their potential demise.

"The Walking Dead" Season 6 premieres Sunday, October 11, at 9/8c.
