The Walking Dead fans have just weeks to go before they get to see Hilarie Burton star alongside her husband Jefrrey Dean Morgan as his on-screen wife.
Yep, the One Tree Hill star will play Negan’s ill-fated wife Lucille in bonus episodes of the apocalypse drama.
Viewers will get to learn about Lucille’s tragic backstory with her husband, and discover more about how he became the twisted vengeful leader fans were first introduced to.
But before all the tragedy commences, we’ll get to see the pair in love as Hilarie sits on her husband’s lap while they gaze adoringly into each other’s eye in the snap.
The actress captioned the image: ‘Find the person you can depend on. #neganandlucille ? @amcthewalkingdead’.
We already know that Lucille had pancreatic cancer back before the zombie outbreak, but later reanimated leaving Negan devastated.
But is more about to come out? Perhaps the reformed leader has been hiding something even more heartbreaking.
The snap is a tantalizing teaser of what’s to come from the six bonus episodes, which will tide fans over between seasons 10 and 11.
The episodes will also mark a catch up with Maggie (Lauren Cohan) explaining where she’s been after leaving Alexandria, and the people she met along the way.
A synopsis of all the episodes reads: ‘We find our survivors trying to pick themselves up by their bootstraps following the destruction the Whisperers left in their wake.
‘The years of struggle weigh upon them as past traumas surface, exposing their more vulnerable sides.
‘As they question the state of humanity, the state of their collective community, and the states of their minds, will they find the inner strength to persevere with their lives, friendships, and group intact?’
