The Walking Dead’s Michael Cudlitz drops big hint about Abraham’s future
Season seven of The Walking Dead is edging closer, but we’re no nearer to learning who Negan killed at the end of season six.
Ever since that cliffhanger, we’ve debated the identity of the individual clobbered to death by new series villain Negan. Could it be Glenn, as it was in the comics? Or how about Daryl, like new footage seems to suggest?
One character that could be off the chopping block is former solder Abraham, however, after actor Michael Cudlitz dropped a big hint in a new interview.
Speaking to PopSugar, Cudlitz talked about the decision to change Abraham’s death scene from the comics last season. While Abraham was supposed to die after being shot through the head with an arrow, it was Denise who met her end in this grisly manner in the show.
Cudlitz said: “[…] The audience knows that Abraham will continue for a while now. Now we get to see what a world with Negan and Abraham both in it will be like. That’s something we don’t see in the graphic novels.”
If we’re going to see a world with both Negan and Abraham, that means our favourite ginger has to survive. Right?
That’s not all, as the same interview offers a second hint towards Abraham’s survival. Cudlitz later confesses he “can’t wait to get the script each week”. That sounds like he’s still on the show.
It sounds promising, but Cudlitz wouldn’t exactly be the first actor to lie about his character’s future on The Walking Dead. The only thing we can expect from The Walking Dead is the unexpected, so we’re not falling for anything anymore.
