Following Sunday’s Season 6 midseason finale, AMC released a The Walking Dead prologue for the next chapter of the hit series. In the clip, we get to hear the first mention of the villain Negan, to be played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Known for his penchant for violence and a baseball bat covered in barb wire named “Lucille,” Morgan will make his debut as the character in the season six finale before becoming a series regular in season seven.
