The upcoming sixth season of AMC's The Walking Dead may feature the appearance of Negan, a character fans of the graphic novel series are no doubt familiar with.
"It’s absolutely a possibility," series showrunner Scott Gimple told EW. "And when I say it’s a possibility, we have a plan in place, but there’s a couple variables for that plan that we’re deciding about. It really depends on a few factors as we move into setting up the last bit of the season story-wise."
Paul Monroe (aka Jesus) may appear in Season 6 as well. According to series creator Robert Kirkman, there's a good chance we'll see both Monroe and Negan in the show soon, it's just a matter finding a way to do the characters justice in their on-screen portrayals.

SEGA's most recent financial earnings report was not a wholly positive one.
Reporting a decrease of 42 percent in net sales, the publisher reports sales earnings of ¥52.9 billion ($426 million), operating losses of ¥9.5 billion ($76 million), and net losses of ¥7.9 billion ($63.8 million).
SEGA representatives largely attribute the decrease in sales figures to global economies, with additional issues arising from the reported decrease in demand for game software, amusement centers, and amusement machines in Japan.
"The economy still remained in the condition requiring further time for full recovery due to uncertainty towards a downswing in overseas economies arising from factors such as the slowdown of growth in the economies of emerging countries and European debt crisis," SEGA said.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is making its long-awaited return to Nickelodeon this week with an all-new episode, "Turtles in Time," the title of which pays tribute to the 1992 TMNT video game, as well as the 1993 live-action film.

Capcom is looking into remaking Resident Evil 2.
Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi revealed on the official Resident Evil Facebook page that he was presenting his ideas for a Resident Evil 2 project to the company. "Right after the
HD Remaster project was finished, I actually started putting together my ideas for this 'RE2 Project,'" he said. "So, I just brushed it up and went to see my boss to present the basic concept of the project already."
Hirabayashi has worked on the Resident Evil series for years, contributing to the GameCube remake, Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. He expressed his excitement earlier this week about a Resident Evil 2 remake after Capcom R&D Division 1 asked fans if they would be interested by such a project. The response was quite positive.
The popular anime and manga series Naruto may come to the silver screen by way of Lionsgate, according to a new report.
Tracking-Board claims Michael Gracey will direct a live-action Naruto movie, which follows the popular Japanese series starring the mischievous ninja named Nartuo Uzumaki, who dreams of one day become the protector of his village as the Hokage. However, IGN has learned that Lionsgate is still only at the negotiations stage so this is by no means a done deal.
Self-proclaimed Naruto fan and former Marvel Studios boss Avi Arad (the Spider-Man movies) will reportedly produce the film via his Arad Productions company, with Geoff Shaveitz, Erik Feig, and Kelly O’Malley overseeing the project.

Nvidia suggests that people stop using the tablets immediately - unless it's for the purpose of backing up data or participating in the recall.
