Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman himself admitted to challenging the AMC series with adapting his comic tiger, “Shiva,” so is Season 7 up to the task? See for yourself, as AMC releases a new photo of Ezekiel’s majestic companion, and bosses explain in-depth how the animatronics and CGI work.

How cute, you presumed The Walking Dead would let weeks of the year go by without premiering new episodes on one of its branches. So it is, that one week out from the main series’ return, Fear The Walking Dead has begun the slow shamble to Season 3 with a new series of webisodes to potentially impact the franchise.
Time will tell if The Walking Dead can undo the fan ire that came with Season 6's cliffhanger finale, but time they certainly have. One week out from Season 7's premiere, The Walking Dead confirms that its endless parade of undead misery will continue through Season 8, and hit a major milestone at that.
The Walking Dead is bracing Mad Men levels of cryptic with every new tease from Season 7, but more than a few cracks are starting to show. Case in point, two more synopses from the season have hit the web, and it looks like we’ll be seeing the new communities sooner than expected.
The entirety of Walking Dead Season 7 promotion hinges on the identity of Negan’s victim from the Season 6 finale, but what happens when that mystery resolves? We’re going right back to dread, according to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who implies that Negan’s kill list might double in the October 23 premiere.
The Walking Dead of Season 7 is a far-cry from the early days of Season 1, and it seems some ominous words from a forgotten friend will come back to haunt Rick as such. Our official title and synopsis for the October 23 premiere has arrived, calling back to mind a Walking Dead character many thought they’d never hear from again.
The Walking Dead has the unique problem of promoting Season 7 without eliminating any cast from Negan’s potential victim pool, but at least two were pretty easily crossed off the list. A new clip from Season 7 fresh out of NYCC sees Rick and Negan in a deadly post-Lucille staredown, but is Rick about to wind up with a major injury of his own?
Walking Dead companion series Fear The Walking Dead wrapped up its second season with a few hints of the world leaning farther into the zombie apocalypse, but fans will always wonder if the two series would ever cross over. Robert Kirkman even offered a tantalizing hint at New York Comic-Con, suggesting a Fear-ful origin for one of the comics’ current villains.
Even as Walking Dead comic fans knew it to be coming, AMC viewers may have been taken back by the Season 7 trailer appearance of “King” Ezekiel and his pet tiger Shiva. Season 7 brought the creature to life with animatronics and CGI, while creator Robert Kirkman admits he wrote the tiger in to see how a TV series might handle it.
Whether or not The Walking Dead turns into a 50-year franchise like Star Trek, the AMC series will inevitably either conclude before, or extend beyond Robert Kirkman’s comic source material. Whenever we get to that point, Kirkman at least confirms the two mediums will craft different endings, so as not to spoil one another.
