Negan is back in The Walking Dead: Dead City, but he’s not the same

Negan is back in The Walking Dead: Dead City, but he’s not the same

Negan certainly went through character evolutions over the course of the original series, starting the show as its most hated character and ending it with, at the very least, a good backstory and heartfelt apology. “The Walking Dead: Dead City,” however, might allow the character even more room to grow, as it focuses squarely on two characters instead of one large ensemble. “We took a deep dive into Maggie and Negan that we’ve never been able to do before,” Jeffrey Dean Morgan told Decider, “and to do it in this new environment […] it’s a great starting point for a new show.”

In the show’s six-episode first season (Decider’s interview hints there could be more, though the series was first announced as a limited series), this deep dive will apparently involve to give us more information about Negan’s backstory. The character’s pre-apocalypse life was already memorably explored in a season 10 episode of the flagship series, in which we learned that his Lucille baseball bat was named after a real person (his wife, who died in earth-shattering circumstances years earlier). Still, Morgan said Newsweek fans will “learn a little more about Negan’s life before ‘Walking Dead'” in the new series, which the first episode didn’t yet hint at.
