“Negan upends the entire story.” states showrunner Scott M. Gimple on bring Negan into the series. He went on to say, “Negan has an incredible amount of power, both in his cult personality and his practical man power. He has legions and legions of people who identify themselves as him. He’s got a system that has worked very well by him and it fairly immediately neutralized Rick and his group, who are quite formidable. Negan knows people. He knows human nature. He knows himself. For a powerful and smart person to know human nature that well – that is very dangerous. “
The new footage is over 3 minutes long and picks up shortly after the closing of the season 6 finale.
