TMZ reports that Norman Reedus and Steven Yeun were cruising through Peachtree City on motorcycles when they came across a minor accident.
Passers-by took photos and sent them to TMZ. The fact they were good Samaritans and stuck around is well and good but for “Walking Dead” fans who were wondering about their characters Daryl Dixon and Glenn Rhee, this is potentially very positive news.
The show began production for season 7 on May 2. The fact Yeun and Reedus are floating around now is a good sign they both survived the wrath of Negan in that annoying season 6 cliffhanger. Yeun was slated to shoot a small role in a movie, which fueled speculation he might be off the show. But given the schedule of “The Walking Dead,” which often involves weeks off for particular characters, he probably could pull that off.
Negan had nine other people he could have killed. My bet is still Abraham. He’s big, brawny and from a storytelling perspective, dispensable despite being a relatively big player the past couple of seasons.
