Watch: First Look at Negan on ‘The Walking Dead’

In today’s news roundup, a new “The Walking Dead” teaser reveals Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan for the first time. Plus, “Supergirl” has plans to bring on Wonder Woman, and Shemar Moore exits “Criminal Minds.” Click to watch “TWD” trailer, and more . . .

THE WALKING DEAD

Spoiler Alert: The below blurb on “The Walking Dead” contains spoilers from the comics, but not the show

He’s finally here. In an international teaser for “The Walking Dead,” which leaked on Friday, we got our first glimpse of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s villainous Negan, and AMC released the official U.S. version on Sunday.

Negan and his barbwire-covered baseball bat Lucille are set to debut during the 90-minute Season 6 finale on April 3. In anticipation of that grand entrance, the video does not show the character’s face, but we do hear him speak, introducing himself with a graveled, “Hi. I’m Negan.”

In the original comics, Negan murders Glenn (Steven Yeun) with Lucille, but as the show tends to add a new spin to the comics, there’s no guarantee what Glenn’s future holds when Negan arrives in the finale.

SUPERGIRL:

Wonder Woman will be making her way to “Supergirl” — that is, when the CBS series gets a Season 2 renewal.

Yesterday, following a press screening for “The Flash” and “Supergirl” crossover episode, Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg told reporters, including Variety, that they have plans for Lynda Carter to come onto the show.

“We had the perfect role for Lynda Carter. We couldn’t work out her schedule. Next year,” Berlanti said, referring to the show’s second season — which hasn’t been officially greenlit, though a renewal is expected. “We’re going to do it, we’ll just do it next year,” Kreisberg added.

Berlanti even revealed Carter’s future role: the female President of the United States.

CRIMINAL MINDS:

Longtime “Criminal Minds” star Shemar Moore exited the CBS procedural this week, after 11 seasons.

The actor posted many messages on social media, in anticipation of the big episode, and in an interview following his departure, Moore teased that him leaving the show may not be permanent.

“It’s not goodbye. Derek did not die,” Moore told E! News of his character, then going on to explain the reason for departing. “Yes, I am wanting to see what else is out there for me and what else I’m capable of in my career and also in my personal life. I’m looking for balance. I want to fall in love, get married, have kids, travel. I want to walk my dogs more. Just get some balance. Those elevator doors closed and I have no problem because CBS and more importantly my fans and my family at Criminal Minds have been so good to me, I’m not opposed to those doors opening up again. Now, it may not be permanently, and it may not be for a full season, but if there’s an opportunity to go back and dance and play, I wouldn’t be opposed to that.”

Earlier today, CBS renewed a slew of shows, though the future of “Criminal Minds” still remains to be seen.
