We’ve come a long way from The Walking Dead teasing Negan’s Season 6 finale debut, and it’s of interest to look back at some of the early rumors for casting. Among the names floated were Justified and Santa Clarita Diet star Timothy Olyphant, though the actor now claims he’d never had anything to do with it.

We’re just over two weeks now from The Walking Dead Season 7's return, and whether or not you buy Andrew Lincoln’s passionate defense of the first half, Season 7B doesn’t appear to be wasting any time. See for yourself with a brand-new round of photos from February 12 premiere “Rock in the Road,” along with one of those ever-cryptic synopses.
Let’s be honest: even the most diehard of Walking Dead fans would admit to tough going through the first half of Season 7, between all its brutality, and unease with seeing Rick so utterly broken. We’ve heard Andrew Lincoln promising a brighter future ahead, though the actor now acknowledges some fan frustration, promising “this season made a lot more sense once we got the last roll of film in the can.”
Yesterday we caught what looked to be a Walking Dead deviation for Rick and co., as the group met a junkyard gang on their way to “Rise Up” against Negan. Now, new photos from the 2017 premiere and beyond see the Saviors making an unwelcome return to Alexandria, while producers promise “one of the most ingenious walkers is coming up in the second half.”
The Walking Dead has plenty of ground to cover when Season 7 picks up again in February, so is there time to introduce another community? Looks like we’re going to find out, as new photo introduces an apparent junkyard gang, and perhaps an answer to the boot-wearing mystery figure from the midseason finale.
Even the most downtrodden of Walking Dead fans are likely looking forward to Season 7B as a call to action, at least over the punishing and dreary first half. Now, new photos show Rick and the team back in action, while a fresh synopsis for the February premiere teases “new survivors in incredible places,” and “treachery from people we trust.”
The Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln promised a much more satisfying back half to Season 7 than those punishing first eight installments, but is any hope to be found in the latest cache of cryptic photos? Get a taste of the plan to fight back (and possibly go a little mad) trying to decipher all the clues for our 2017 return!
It’s been an exceptionally punishing year for fans of The Walking Dead, who first endured the cop-out of Negan’s entrance, a summer spent waiting, and about eight episodes since of misery under The Saviors’ reign. Rick will finally fight back when Season 7 returns in February, and Andrew Lincoln insists “There’s a lot more levity, if you can believe that.”
Live ratings for The Walking Dead may have taken a slight tumble in Season 7, but that isn’t stopping AMC from envisioning decades of story ahead. Creator Robert Kirkman too maintains the endless nature of the comics, though new comments suggest AMC might be gaining on the comics’ lead by the time Season 12 rolls around.
AMC’s Preacher may not have made many Best of 2016 lists, but the second season might turn things around for Jesse, Tulip and Custer, as the unholy trio hits the road of their namesake comics. Creator-director Seth Rogen is ready as well, sharing the first production tease as Season 2 prepares to go before cameras.
