LOS ANGELES, Oct. 3 (UPI) — Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick says most of the stars of “The Walking Dead” will appear on his analysis program after their own devastating, season premiere.
A yet-to-be-revealed fan favorite from the show is expected to be beaten to death by Jeffrey Dean Morgan‘s villain Negan in the Season 7 premiere.
Among the possible victims are Daryl [played by Norman Reedus,] Glenn [played by Steven Yeun,] Glenn’s pregnant wife Maggie [played by Lauren Cohan,] Rick [played by Andrew Lincoln,] Rick’s girlfriend Michonne [played by Danai Gurira,] Rick’s son Carl [played by Chandler Riggs,] Abraham [played by Michael Cudlitz,] Abraham’s girlfriend Sasha [played by Sonequa Martin-Green,] Abraham’s ex-girlfriend Rosita [played by Christian Serratos,] Aaron [played by Ross Marquand] and Eugene [played by Josh McDermitt].
All of those cast members and thousands of fans are expected to attend the Oct. 23 taping of “Talking Dead” at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The 90-minute program will air on AMC immediately after the return of “The Walking Dead.”
“It’s going to be a very hard episode because we know someone is going to die,” Hardwick said on this past weekend’s edition of “Talking Dead.”
“We’ll all support each other and get through whatever awfulness this man [writer-producer Robert Kirkman] is heaping onto our souls. We’re going to lose someone, we will be there together.”
“Buckle up,” Kirkman said. “It’s going to be a rough one. … Big episode.”
