The show ‘Walking Dead’ has casted Hilarie Burton to play Lucille, Negan’s wife. Burton’s husband in real life, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, also plays Negan. Burton will have multiple guest appearances during both seasons 10 and 11. Burton’s character, Lucille, in reference to the timeline of the show had died years before. Negan then named his wire-wrapped baseball bat after her.
This news comes just after the AMC network will be ending ‘Walking Dead’ following it’s 11th season. The 11th season will air from late 2021 into 2022 with 24 episodes. Burton confirmed her casting in a tweet saying, “Been pretty hard to keep this a secret. But I love working with Jeffrey Dean Morgan. I love watching him become Negan and take on that swagger. And I love the ‘The Walking Dead’ family. They’ve been a part of our family for ages and I’m so grateful for their kindness,”
