AMC’s zombie-drama series The Walking Dead has been in a steady decline for years now. And today we have info that tells us that the show was basically put to a slow death by the arrival of none other than Jeffery Dean Morgan’s Negan.

Shocking, I know.

This update comes to us from BroadbandChoices who literally titles their piece “Negan was the worst thing to happen to The Walking Dead.” Simple. To the point.

Anyhow, the info says that while the show’s season average had dropped slightly over the first 6 seasons, the quality of the show “fell off a cliff” with Season 7.

Fell off a cliff. That works. Brutally beaten to bloody death with a baseball bat is another way to put it. And, yes, this is the season where Rick and Friends (officially) meet the wrong end of Negan’s barbwire baseball bat. You can read more about it HERE.

So what do you think? Is Negan responsible for killing The Walking Dead? Let us know in the comments below or over on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram

For the one guy out there that doesn’t know, The Walking Dead is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and portrays life in the months and years that follow a zombie apocalypse with a group of survivors searching for safety and a secure home.

But the pressure each day to stay alive sends many in the group to the deepest depths of human cruelty, and they soon discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be more deadly than the zombies walking among them. At times, the interpersonal conflicts present a greater threat to their continuing survival than the walkers that roam the country.

Developed by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Mist) the series originally starred Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Steven Yeun, Chandler Riggs, Norman Reedus, and Michael Rooker.

  1. Are people really disgusted by the brutal deaths of Glenn and Abraham? Have you all forgotten what show you’re watching? If your stomach couldn’t stand that… there’s a few family networks I can refer you to.

  2. The Neegan debacle might have gone over better if it had not ended season 6 in a cliff hanger. The beatings of Glen and Abraham might have been digested better over the course of a long summer hiatus. That first episode of season 7 should have been the last episode of season 6. Still, the long trudge of the Neegan storyline probably would have killed the show anyway.

  3. I started to lose interest after the death of Carl and when Rick left–I was done with it. Also, the looooonnnnngggg commercials between short clips was more than I could bear–especially without Rick. I don’t think Negan killed the series–he was a horrifying necessity for the show.

  4. AMC killed TWD. They should have never fired the original Producer, they got greedy for advertising money and thought that dividing the season over 18 episodes with a two month break was a good idea. All that did was stall the storyline and we would get hour long episodes about characters / storylines that bored us to tears. Negan’s constant blabbing and acting like Billy badass became super annoying. The show suffers from overkill. That’s what killed the show. We didn’t need a spin off show either.

  5. Too many main characters get killed off..that sucks.. I like Negan and am hoping he starts saving everyone in the cave. He liked Carl and now his sister I hope he stays on. Oh and have you thought that alot of people stopped watching because we can’t unless you have cable or satellite. . Lots of us have firestick..and that’s all. I have to go to my sister’s to watch..I would even pay for the channel if I had too..but I haven’t found out where you have a sight for that. Anyway love the show…

  6. Season six shuffled along slower than the walkers, also many a fan got uppity and swore off the show because a certain main cast member died (and badly)…

    But, look at the trend in the decline…show starts losing viewers, then a cliff dive after the entrance of (yet another) big bad, and the exit of a fan fave, and then it continues to decay…only to kill off yet still more if the main cast…

    It’s a fairly tired plotline rehashed, allowed to fail, and then rehashed again-minus anyone you cared about! Hardly the fault of a single egomaniac with a baseball fetish.

  7. Bullshit….he is the only reason we still watch!!!! Everyone else is boring as hell…the story is boring, hell even the walkers arent an issue..the only reason we watch is to see what negan will do next. It died without rick and carl…if i wanna watch an adorable little girl lead a show…id watch Nickelodeon! Sorry Judith.

  8. Could not agree more with the premise of this article. I was a huge fan of TWD from the opening show of season 1 on Halloween night. I faithfully watched every episode until mid season 7 when I just couldn’t take any more of the absurd writing for Neagan character. He is a great actor, but writers and producers tried to push the charming, sexy character together with the murderous psychopathic misogynistic rapist, and it simply failed. I checked out, they lost me.

    • I was thinking just the same thing, as brutal as Nega n is it was actually Scott Gimpl e and AM C who murdered the show. No doubt that’s why Gimpl e got “promoted” and Angela got hired as chief writer. But what can you do when you’ve killed off Carl. It was the mess behind the scenes.

  9. People in this world to hate successful popular things, the show is such a hit, that it has 3movies coming up n I can’t count the other spin offs from the original show,it’s cool if u stoped watching it but dont talk trash about,it’s still going n now ur watch some other garbage show. It’s still the best show in my mind n they went somewhere with this show people were to afraid to even suggest creating n put it on television. WALKING DEAD ROCKS!
