Negan is about to be really happy.
You may remember that when Negan made his debut on “The Walking Dead,“ his infamous, expletive-filled arrival speech from the comic books was seriously toned down for AMC; one version was shot for the network, while an uncensored cut of the scene was shot for Season 6’s home video release.
Well, it doesn’t look like the “Walking Dead” team will be running into that problem anymore, as it’s been confirmed that AMC has made a decision to allow up to two uses of the word “fuck” in every season of spinoff series “Fear the Walking Dead”… and we can only assume that this also extends to the main series.
In fact, “Fear the Walking Dead” just dropped an f-bomb last night.
“You get a specific number of curse words you can say, and then there’s a list of what you can and can’t do,” Dave Erickson, “Fear” showrunner, explained to ComicBook.com. “I think it was our script coordinator who told me there was an email had come up; there had been a memo saying we could now say ‘fuck’ twice over the course of an entire season.”
Given how much violence AMC allows “The Walking Dead” to air without any conflict, it stands to reason that they’d finally lift the ban on f-bombs. You may have noticed that more and more television shows are pushing those boundaries, with “American Horror Story: Cult” already dropping several f-bombs on FX.
