The Walking Dead Boss Teases Eventual Arrival of Major Villain

at . Comments

The Governor is dead.

He will not be heard from or seen again on The Walking Dead Season 4.

So, with this iconic graphic novel villain out of the way, when can fans of the series look forward to the appearance of Negan, a leader of a group known as the Saviors who carries a barbed-wire baseball and debuts in Issue 100?

Not any time in the future, creator Robert Kirkman tells Entertainment Weekly.

"I definitely do think there needs to be some kind of space from a Governor into a Negan," Kirkman says. "You have to have something of a break in there.

"I wouldn’t expect him to be showing up - definitely not in season 4... I wouldn’t expect it too soon. But we are all very excited about the prospect of bringing that guy into the show. The plan is that we will see him eventually.”

"who carries a barbed-wire baseball and" yeah I have a suggestion: how about you and your stuff actually bother to proof read your stuff for once??? I swear 98% of the stuff I read on this site is like it was written by a 12 year old school girl in a rush


Robert Knepper...he would make an awesome villain! I love him!!
