‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7: Xander Berkeley Confirms Gregory’s Return
AMC may seriously be cracking down on spoilers relating to The Walking Dead Season 7, but we now know at least one new-ish cast member who’s coming back for more.
Xander Berkeley, who made his debut in TWD Season 6 as Gregory, the unwelcoming leader of The Hilltop, will also play a crucial role in Season 7.

The actor announced the news himself in a fun tweet from June 13.
When we first met Rick Grimes’s Hilltop counterpart, he rebuffed Maggie Greene’s request to trade with the Alexandria Safe Zone, but after Negan’s attempt to take Gregory out and Hilltop’s lack of necessary ammunition, the slimy dude had no choice but to join forces with the ASZ.

What we do know, however, is that Xander has the utmost respect for the cast and crew of the AMC drama.

When a fan praised the “dedicated” group and told him to stay cool in the oppressive Atlanta heat, the 60-year-old replied he was “blown away by the commitment and dedication of this bunch.”
We’re crossing our fingers Gregory becomes an ally in Season 7, because with Negan more present than ever, our crew is going to need all the help they can get!
The Walking Dead Season 7 will premiere in the fall on AMC.
