Take a look @ 2 minutes of footage from the Mid-Season premiere of "The Walking Dead", introducing the character 'Negan', written by Seth Hoffman and directed by Greg Nicotero, airing February 14, 2016 on AMC:
"...'Negan' (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is the leader of a group of over 50 survivors called the 'Saviors', who subjugate other communities in the area for resources in return for their protection against zombies.
"After 'Rick Grimes' and his fellow survivors agree to start a trading network, they are ambushed by the Saviors and are forced to obey Negan's rules and orders to give half of their supplies away like the other communities.
"Initially obedient, Rick and the others secretly gather up for war against the Saviors with the other communities, while Negan resides in an abandoned factory where most of the women act as his wives..."
According to "The Walking Dead" showrunner Scott Gimple:
"...the good people at 'Talking Dead' asked us for a 'sneak peek' and we realized that anything peekable was far too sneaky and, thus, we present to you the most cinematic of sneak peeks: a census shattering note! So, here it is. We will be wooing you with the weirdest of 'Valentine's Day' gifts: chaos, terror, heartbreak, heroics, tragedy, and terror. Yes, that's two terrors. Friends, in all seriousness, episode nine is one of the biggest episodes we've done. Greg (Nicotero) and the astounding crew made magic. We cannot wait to show you February 14. Make sure your television boxes are in good operating condition and install safety belts on your couches. This one is gargantuan. Some people give candy, flowers, and/or hilariously themed teddy bears but this Valentine's Day we're giving you 'The Walking Dead' midseason premiere..."
