The Walking Dead's Negan Will Still Terrorize Us in Season 8

If you think the second half of the season 7 will be the highlight and potential end to Negan's tyranny in The Walking Dead, think again.

Cinema Blend confirmed that Negan will be back for the eighth season. What’s more, he will have a much bigger role than what we’ve already seen.

“I know I will be on board for Season 8. The next two I’m really big in.”

At this point, I think the bigger question is whether The Walking Dead can actually hold onto its viewers for another season.

The show has already seen a rapid decline in viewership because of recent episodes. And even though it remains one of the most-watched series, that kind of decline is bound to take effect.

Personally, I've had to see my hopes for the hype diminish slowly but surely with each episode. The premiere episode and the second one with The Kingdom did give a lot of hope on where the series' direction could go.

But by the time we see yet another community introduced, an entire episode get blundered with odd writing and timing, and the promise of the worst badass transform into a bratty bully, it was kind of hard to take in with a hopeful face.

We still have three episodes left for the first half of the season, and entire half season waiting next year.

The hype of The Walking Dead's game-changer season has seen a resounding groan from viewers. Unless they're able to do something about what they've delivered so far--and please, not another cliffhanger for the mid-season finale--it's going to be a lot of hard work hyping fans again for season 8.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays, 9 p.m., on AMC.
