‘Walking Dead’ Season 6 Finale: Will We See Negan?
Well, Walking Dead fans, it looks like the arrival of mega-villain Negan — hands down the baddest character in the TWD comics — is just around the corner.
After years and years of speculation as to when Negan and his barbed-wire bat named Lucille might arrive on the show, we now have reason to believe the notorious big bad may show his face as early as the Season 6 finale, which is slated to air in March 2016.

The Spoiling Dead Fans Facebook page reports the series is casting for a character named “Orin,” who will first appear in Season 6, Episode 16 (AKA the season finale) and seemingly has a lot in common with Negan.
Orin, who, like Negan, is in his 30s-mid-40s, is described as “a physically imposing, charismatic, brutal, smart, ferocious, frightening, hilarious, inappropriate, oddly friendly, fun loving sociopath that is both a leader of men and a killer of men.” The description also notes Orin is “pure, dangerous, murderous, with an often gleeful id that still has both discipline and a code.”

Not convinced Orin = Negan just yet?
Then we should also tell you Orin “has a temper that can vaporize people” and is “one of the strongest personalities ever.” If that’s not a description of Negan then we don’t know what is.

Furthermore, fresh off the news that Jesus has been cast and Xander Berkeley will reportedly be playing comic book character Gregory (both of whom appear just prior to Negan in the books) it seems clear the big bad’s arrival is imminent.
Negan’s debut is bad news for Glenn Rhee, aka Steven Yeun, who suffers a brutal and cruel fate at his hands in the comics. Looks like we’ll have to wait and see what happens!
The Walking Dead Season 6 premieres with a 90-minute episode on October 11 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
