The Walking Dead has just released a new two-minute video that takes a look at the final eight episodes of season 6. It is quite a surreal piece with commentary by many of the series’ stars and producers that gives fans an exciting glimpse into the ever expanding world of The Walking Dead, which includes what the characters can expect moving forward with the series after the fallout of the looming Walker war.
It is probably needless to say at this point, but fans truly do not know anything that is about to take place on The Walking Dead, because in the end, the comic series does not accurately portray line-by-line spoilers of what the AMC series has coming your way.
Although most of the conjecture that has taken place online about how The Walking Dead will move forward in the second half of season 6 has been somewhat on point, there is always going to be that wild card that showrunner Scott Gimple strategically places in each episode and breaks all the rules. Those same rules are what die hard fans of The Walking Dead use to maintain a resemblance of sanity between episodes and seasons.
There is, however, some good news on the horizon with the future of The Walking Dead on AMC. Although the fate of Glenn still hangs carefully in the balance following the arrival of Negan late in the season, Maggie is about to rise up and take on a leadership role, considering she was Deanna’s aide and on the inside of the leadership, according to TV Line.

Unless you have been living under a rock somewhere or have been putting of watching The Walking Dead until it hits Netflix next October, then you should know that not only does Maggie have Glenn’s homecoming to look forward to, although she doesn’t know it yet, but she also has another arrival coming soon. It has already been revealed that Glenn is going to be a father and Maggie is going to be one fierce mother on The Walking Dead.

The reason this article says fierce is because fans need to consider the extremes she has already undergone to protect her unborn child, which is barely even a glimpse on the radar in terms of a baby bump. First of all, the amount of sheer will she has had for protecting and finding Glenn in the show has been shown when they were separated following the prison breach. So when she sets off to find Glenn in the underground Alexandria tunnel then turns back after a minor set back due to her pregnancy, she commits herself to a more important purpose, which is their child.
Moving forward in the series, the arrival of the Saviors has already breached the horizon following the post-fall-finale teaser. But as far as the arrival of Negan, fans of The Walking Dead need to stay patient on that one.
Negan won’t be coming on The Walking Dead right away. That of course is all the better for the people and the core group. The truth is, they can only really handle one, maybe two, major threats at a time. Right now, those threats are the Walker war and the Wolves. Once those are over, then they can carry on with the next threat.
But as the original teaser indicated, the Saviors have only come upon Daryl Dixon and company out on the road. So there is a good chance that they will not risk leading them back to their safe zone. Daryl will not allow a threat like that to come home with him.
