The Walking Dead season 10 spoilers: Star speaks out on …

The Walking Dead fans will no-doubt remember the horrific event which introduced Negan (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan) back in season six.

Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) was introduced to the tyrant when he forced all of the community to kneel and wait for one of them to be killed by his bat, Lucille.

And much to Ricks horror, Negan didnt just stop at one death. After brutally beating Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) to death, he moved on to kill Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun).

However it has now been revealed this exact event was what caused Tyreese actor Chad Coleman to want to bow out of the show.

While the suspense was certainly terrifying for viewers of the show, the extremely graphic scenes were also criticised by some fans.

And Chad was one of them, as he recently told Popcorn Talk.

Chad explained he had had enough of the show following the storyline, and suggested it took things a little too far.

He said: After Glenn and Abraham, you know, Negan smashed their heads in that way, it was just like: Thats enough for me. Thanks guys. Take care. All the best.

Unfortunately for Chad Tyreese was killed off in season five after being bitten by a walker, and then subsequently died from blood loss.

Despite his comments on leaving the series, Chad went on to tell the publication he is enjoying where the plot is going now.

He said: But [the show is] coming back around to more nuanced, less extreme characters, you know.

Thats one of the benefits and joys of playing Tyreese hes a very real man in a very tough situation and you felt his humanity.

His sensitivity, all the things that all of us as just regular folk would go through, so theyre getting back to more nuanced character stuff again with [showrunner] Angela Kang.

Recently producer Angela has spoken out about the deaths of certain LGBT characters throughout recent seasons.

She told The Hollywood Reporter: Its like the discussion we have about any character.

For season nine, in our writers room itself, the LGBTQ perspective has been represented very strongly throughout the years, and this year was no exception.

Our cast of series regulars, as well as many major recurring characters, the majority of the people are from historically underrepresented groups.

Theyre often from two or three of those groups at one time. Any one death on this show will always hit somebody who will feel: Theres not enough of me represented on screen.

There are a number of LGBT characters in the shows latest season, including: Magna (Nadia Hiker) and Yumiko (Eleanor Masuura).

The Walking Dead season 10 premieres on AMC and FOX in October 2019.
