What's This?

“The Walking Dead” season 7 recent updates are saying that its finale will be quite boring as hinted by creator Robert Kirkman himself. Could this be because he has been receiving daily death threats?


According to the creator, fans are outraged after the cliffhanger final episode of The Walking Dead season 6 that the team decided to rule out another open-ended finale.

“As a creative person, I have to acknowledge that all responses are valid,” Robert Kirkman told Entertainment Weekly.

“I definitely have to take note that there’s a seemingly significant portion of the audience that wasn’t happy with that direction, so in that respect I think everyone on the Walking Dead creative team has taken note of that, and I don’t know that I would expect a similar cliff-hanger at the end of season,” he added.

It can be recalled that “The Walking Dead” season 6 finale left fans wondering as to who villain Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, killed using his barbd-wire covered bat.

As fans busted in fury after last season’s finale, creator Robert Kirkman admitted of receiving death threats every day, just like what the people he also work with do.

But the creator prefers to shrug off death threats as he takes them as his way to improve on what the fans want, Comic Book said.

“People have been saying disgusting things to me for so long now that I have become desensitized,” he added. “I use it as a tool. You get a sense of what the audience likes and dislikes, and what path they want the action to take.”

Meanwhile, Jeffrey Dean Morgan himself confirmed that “The Walking Dead” season 7 will be all about Negan and his villainous act.

Though none of the cast members are hinting who is Negan’s victim from last season’s cliffhanger finale, spoilers are teasing that the next season will be “gruesome.”

“What you’re going to see in the first half of this season is Negan wreaking havoc,” he said.

“The Walking Dead” season 7 is set to premiere on October 23, 9PM on AMC.
