The Walking Dead Season 7 spoilers have been allegedly popping up ever since Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) showed up in one scene at the end of Season 6. When the scene faded to black with one character receiving the “business end” of Lucille, fans were outraged.
This hasn’t stopped those fans from attempting to guess who will be missing when season seven of The Walking Dead arrives this October. Spoilers may lie beyond, so read on only if you want clues about who Negan’s first kill was.
You were warned.

AMC has even gone out of their way to stop actual spoilers from giving away who it is, having filmed death scenes for everybody in the lineup. Maggie, Glenn, Rick, Carl, Daryl, Michonne, Sasha, Abraham, and everybody else have all been filmed as victims of the shocking kill, so nobody watching the scene being filmed even knows which one it will be.

If you look at the Internet Movie Database, go through the cast who are among the biggest characters on the show, and some of them have listings which seem to defy them living beyond Negan’s introduction.
Rick is most unlikely to die at the beginning of Season 7, since Andrew Lincoln has a list of 16 episodes under his credit for that season alone. Unless he ends up being featured in flashbacks for most of the season, there is a big chance he will live.
Chandler Riggs’ Carl has one movie already completed after his last credited episode, Keep Watching.
Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) both share a film credit currently listed as “filming,” All Eyez on Me, a documentary on the life of Tupac Shakur.
Norman Reedus is currently working on a new reality TV series, and starring in Hideo Kojima’s new solo game, Death Stranding. He is one of the most likely to be the one Negan kills, and the subject of many potential The Walking Dead spoilers.
Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) doesn’t have any other projects happening at the moment, and shares this in common with Abraham (Michael Cudlitz).
The one most likely to have been killed off is Glenn (Steven Yeun), which would mirror what happened in the comics. He has filmed two projects already since The Walking Dead, and is currently filming another. He appears to be playing an Oriental character in two of them, which would make sense considering his heritage. The current one, Okja, could be a foreign movie filming in South Korea, meaning he’s not even in the United States, never mind Atlanta, Georgia.
Glenn was also the one seen directly in front of Negan in set photos from the last episode, and it’s been rumored that he hasn’t been seen on the set since filming began this year. Of course, neither has Michael Cudlitz.
However, it has been stated before in The Walking Dead spoilers that the show will not always follow the comics. Consider that Norman Reedus’ Daryl Dixon wasn’t even a major character in the comics and you’ll know he’s expendable from the start. It’s also been stated by the show’s producers that everybody will die eventually, so there is a very real possibility that in a few seasons, nobody from the original group will be left.
AMC will not confirm anything, nor will they let anyone else do so, until the seventh season of The Walking Dead airs in October. Spoilers could be nothing but rumors, but it seems the character Negan kills off could already be known.
Who do you think it was?
