"The Walking Dead" showrunner Angela Kang told viewers that Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Beta (Ryan Hurst) will meet at some point this season on aftershow "Talking Dead." When they do, Hurst promises it will have fans laughing. 

"Beta and Negan, they couldn't be more diametrically opposite than anything," Hurst told Insider of the differences between the two characters. "It's this stone-faced immovable person and then you have his mouthpiece who just will not shut up."

"The first episode that you see Beta and Negan together is one of the funniest episodes of 'Walking Dead' that you've ever seen," he added. "It's still very bloody, still very 'Walking Dead,' but there's more levity in that episode than in any that I've ever seen of the show."

In the "Walking Dead" comics, the meetup between Beta and Negan in issue No. 154 is also one of the funniest moments of Robert Kirkman's series for the reasons Hurst describes. They're complete opposites. Negan also gives Beta nicknames like Frowny Mctwoknives, which we hope make it to screen.

Negan goes after the Whisperers in order to please Rick and stop the impending war with the group of survivors who wear masks over their faces. Without Rick around, our best guess is that Negan puts himself out there to protect Judith and the Alexandria community and to prove his worth to the community who rather see him locked up.

"I've been looking forward to this for a long time," said Hurst of Beta and Negan meeting this season. "We've shot a bunch. Some of it's still left to be shot. But, you know, I love the show too. I've been looking forward to this."

"Jeff [Dean Morgan] and I have been great friends for a long time. So the fact that we get to share the screen together is an enormous joy," Hurst added of working with his friend.

Hurst told Insider in March he and Morgan are such good friends that he nearly spoiled the news when Hurst was initially cast on the show as Beta by texting him at two o'clock in the morning. 

Negan and Beta isn't the only meeting fans should get excited for this season. Hurst hints we'll also see more of Beta and Daryl on screen. Their first meeting ended up with Beta falling down an elevator shaft.

"I think it's fair to say that that'll happen. Yeah," said Hurst when asked whether or not fans can expect a round two between Beta and Daryl.

"The Walking Dead" airs Sundays on AMC at 9 p.m. You can follow along with our show coverage here.
