“We can’t wait for you to watch. We just wrapped up the first episode,” Cohan revealed. “I love to give away all kinds of spoilers, but you know we can’t do that. But things obviously happened to [Maggie e Negan], for these two people in conflict. Just say that, it will be very exciting.”
Cohan added, “It’s everything you probably want and more, and we can’t wait for you to see it.”
Moving from the rural Virginia woods to the urban backdrop of New York is “something our viewers have certainly never seen,” Morgan joked. “It’s certainly something that Maggie and Negan never faced. So I’m really excited for everyone to see what we’re working on here. These six episodes will blow you away.”
