What are you looking forward to most when Negan comes back? For me, I want to know how many times he drops the F-Bomb!
It really stinks that AMC has a censorship policy that doesn’t let the Negan we know and love (to hate) from the comics, curse as freely as he normally would.
But that is where the Blu-ray and DVD bonus scenes come in. There is an alternative version of Negan’s entrance scene where he drops so many F-Bombs, the guys at AMC would faint!
And how many would that be?
According to Greg Nicotero and THR, the number of F-Bombs is… drum roll please…. 23!
“We had the f-bomb version and the television version. Even when I did my director’s cut, I put the f-bomb into the director’s cut for all the executive producers to see because it’s so powerful,” Nicotero said. “It’s the momentum of using those words to accentuate and punctuate those moments. The scene in the Blu-ray is astounding.”
THR even broke it down further. They tallied up how many times Negan said each variation of the F word.
And yes Walking Dead fans, you will be hearing the infamous line, “I am gonna beat the holy f*** f***ing f***ety f*** out of one of you,” which was changed to “I’m gonna beat the holy hell out of one of you.” for TV.
The season 6 DVD and Blu-ray debuts Tuesday, August 23 and The Walking Dead returns for season 7 on October 23 on AMC.
