AMC has now revealed at least three guests for the Talking Dead episode which will follow The Walking Dead's 100th overall episode on October 22nd. They are Carol actress Melissa McBride, Negan actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Morgan actor Lennie James.
McBride debuted on the AMC series in its second episode, making her one of five Walking Dead cast members still on the series who had joined in its first season. James is one of three actors who debuted before her, in The Walking Dead's pilot episode, along with Carl Grimes actor Chandler Riggs and Rick Grimes actor Andrew Lincoln. James, however, took a hiatus from the show as his Morgan Jones character when missing for several seasons.
Morgan joined the AMC series in the finale episode of its sixth season, portraying the iconic villain Negan. Negan's presence completely shook the landscape of the show as he was introduced by killing two of the series' key characters and bullying Rick Grimes for the next 15 episodes.
Season Eight, however, will see the survivors going to war against Negan.
Whether or not more cast members from The Walking Dead will be joining the Chris Hardwick-hosted Talking Dead with McBride, James, and Morgan is unknown at this point. Following the highly anticipated Season Seven premiere, the entire core cast of the AMC series joined a live recording of Talking Dead from Los Angeles.
The Walking Dead's sibling series Fear the Walking Dead returns September 10th. The Walking Dead will return for its eighth season on October 22, 2017. The Season Eight premiere will mark 100 episodes overall for the popular AMC series. For complete coverage and insider info all season long, follow @BrandonDavisBD on Twitter.
