Jeffrey Dean Morgan Has Revealed An Important Detail About The Walking Dead: Dead City Series!

MOVIE NEWS – The Walking Dead’s Negan and Maggie are unlikely allies, and it looks like their relationship in Dead City is going to be a little strained, at least according to Jeffrey Dean Morgan.



The Walking Dead: Dead City sees an unlikely alliance between anti-hero Negan and former sworn enemy Maggie. The pair embark on a mission to New York City. Although they’re working together for a specific cause, lead actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan has hinted that fans shouldn’t expect their strained relationship to get any closer than it absolutely has to.

Since Negan’s arrival on The Walking Dead, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) has been given plenty of reasons to hate him, not least for brutally killing her partner and the father of her child, Glenn.

For several seasons following that fateful episode, Maggie made it her mission to see Negan dead. The baseball-bat-wielding villain mostly returned the sentiment. But as the series drew to a close, the pair reached a compromise. Their relationship will now be further explored in the first new Walking Dead spin-off series. When talking about what fans can expect from the new series, Morgan told ET:

“They’re not getting married, you know what I mean? I’ll give that away. It’s tenuous at best. They’re needing each other for a very specific reason. So, Negan has gone back probably a few steps in that redemption arc out of necessity and his survival instincts. It’s going to be a rough road, but going down 5th Avenue is not that bad a road to go down.”


The Walking Dead will be with us for a while


The Walking Dead has been one of AMC’s biggest series for over a decade. When it was announced that the series was ending, it seemed like the zombie story was ready to shuffle off into the apocalyptic sunset. However, before the series finale aired, the franchise’s future was outlined. Three new spin-off series are currently in development, with more in the running.

Dead City arrives this summer, and with it, the return of one of the most popular characters from the original series, Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan.

Everyone loves a bad guy, and when he debuted in the series, there was none worse than him and his barbed-wire baseball bat named Lucille. Time may have mellowed Negan a bit, but his popularity as one of the franchise’s best characters hasn’t waned.

Negan getting his own series doesn’t seem like an obvious choice. Befriending his arch-nemesis, Maggie guarantees that their journey will be as fraught with danger from within as from without. It’s clear from the spin-off trailers and promotions that Maggie needs Negan to help her save her son. But that doesn’t mean they will warm up to each other. There will always be a doubt that haunts them throughout everything they do, forcing them to rely on each other.
