With The Walking Dead's return right around the corner, more details are being revealed about the show, and actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan - who plays Negan in the series - has revealed some secrets about what to expect from his character's journey in the new episodes.

Speaking to EW, Morgan said: "We're going to actually find out a lot more about his world. The last six seasons we've followed Rick and his band of merry men. Now you're going to find out in that time Negan has been running his own show in his own way and coming across all sorts of people and taking care of business. So he has created his army of followers and some are probably reluctant followers, and if they're reluctant followers he has a way to deal with that as well. If you read the comic books a lot of this isn't coming as a huge surprise, but we'll get to see a little bit of that. So basically Negan is going to impose his will one way or another.

"So in finding out more about Negan, we'll find out how his life has been since the zombie apocalypse started, since the outbreak began, and we'll find out sort of how Negan has come to be who he is. He rules with an iron fist and a sense of humour. He's a very charismatic guy. But a lot of those questions will be answered and more are coming, but we're going to find out some backstory very quickly on how the Saviors operate and how Negan operates. I think by mid-season or so a lot of those questions will be answered."

Those who read the comic books know most of this already, so it will be interesting to see if any spins are put on the source material when it comes to the small screen, as has been done in the past.

The Walking Dead returns for its seventh season in the US on AMC on Sunday October 23 and returns to the UK on FOX UK on Monday October 24.
