The Walking Dead Star Jeffrey Dean Morgan has shared a photo to commemorate his final day on AMC’s post-apocalyptic horror series.
Morgan, who plays Negan Smith on the show, posted the black-and-white image to Instagram. It shows the star in a Negan costume, holding a walker’s severed head and staring morosely at the camera. In the accompanying caption, Morgan expresses her love for The Walking Deadthanking fans of the series for their support.
The Walking Dead is based on the Image Comics series of the same name created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore (with artist Charlie Adlard replacing Moore for most of the comic). Season 1 of the AMC adaptation first aired in October 2010 and quickly established itself as a critical and commercial success. 10 more seasons followed, with the filming of the last episode of the Walking DeadThe eleventh and final season of ends in March 2022.
Morgan debuted as Negan in the Season 6 finale “Last Day on Earth” and became one of the The Walking Deadthe most emblematic antagonists. In more recent seasons, Negan has embarked on a redemptive journey, slowly transforming from villain to anti-hero. This character arc picked up speed after Negan returned in Season 11 Episode 13, “Warlords,” after a temporary absence from the show.
The last episode of The Walking Dead won’t mark the end of Negan’s small-screen exploits. AMC recently announced a new spin-off series, Isle of the Deadheadlined by Negan’s Maggie Rhee and Lauren Cohan. Isle of the Dead will see this unlikely duo fight for survival in zombie-infested Manhattan – a place never seen before in the franchise. The Walking Dead In-universe content director Scott M. Gimple promised that the series will “bring these characters to their limits with the world — and with each other.” We’re all excited to take you to a whole new, whole different place. TWD epic for the ages.”
Morgan recently revealed that he was surprised that AMC announced Isle of the Dead before The Walking Dead concluded since the news spoils the final fate of Negan and Maggie. “Now that we’ve announced there will be a spin-off, I guess we don’t have to die,” Morgan said. “Spoiler alert, folks. Sorry! I still don’t know why we announced this already. It was a bit of a shock to me.”
New episodes of The Walking Dead airing every Sunday on AMC and available to stream a week earlier on AMC+.
