Chris Hardwick will be on TV even more than usual on Oct. 23, when he'll host a supersized 90-minute episode of Talking Dead, The Walking Dead's live post-show discussion, after the AMC megahit's Season 7 premiere, Comicbook.com reports.
Every cast member in Negan's lineup will appear on Talking Dead — Andrew Lincoln, Ross Marquand, Norman Reedus, Sonequa Martin-Green, Josh McDermitt, Michael Cudlitz, Chandler Riggs, Christian Serratos, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan and Danai Gurira — as well as Negan himself, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, creator Robert Kirkman and showrunner Scott Gimple. It will be the first public appearance by the victim of Negan's baseball bat after the reveal of who died.
This episode of Talking Dead will also be different because instead of filming in-studio, it will be live from the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
AMC will give away tickets to 2,000 lucky fans to attend the taping and watch the premiere with The Walking Dead cast and crew.
The Walking Dead Season 7 premieres Sunday, October 23 at 9/8c on AMC, with Talking Dead airing immediately after.
