Will characters from The Walking Dead Season 6 and prior appear in Season 7? You betcha! Will at least one of them die in the premiere? Probably! You might not know it from the first official round of Season 7 photos, however, which follow the trailer’s lead to reveal almost no one but Carol, Morgan and our new friend Ezekiel!
Long before Jeffrey Dean Morgan picked up the bat as The Walking Dead’s Negan, we knew AMC would reign in the foul-mouthed character’s language, occasionally allowing for alternate takes. Now, Morgan himself reveals that Season 7 makes regular use of “F-takes” to accommodate the character’s more colorful swears, but will we ever see them?
Oh, PETA. You haters of horse-sex, and cannibals of Gillian Anderson’s leg. Whatever we think of The Walking Dead Season 7 and its many questions, the AMC drama is apparently making PETA happy with its “magic” use of CG and animatronics to bring to life that famous tiger from the Season 7 trailer.
Heading into its seventh season, The Walking Dead is already at an age when most series would look to start wrapping things up, though its status as AMC’s flagship hit with miles of Robert Kirkman story ahead would make that unlikely. It’s a question sure to plague the AMC series more and more in the coming years, but according to Andrew Lincoln and Scott Gimple, one idea sees Robert Kirkman ending both his long-running comic and the TV Walking Dead simultaneously.
The Walking Dead may not have revealed Negan's victim, but the smash AMC drama certainly made a killing at Comic-Con 2016. We already caught the trailer, but what major details did the zombie-killer cast reveal from the assembled cast in San Diego? Our full panel report!
Walking Dead fans remain on the edge of their seats for news of Negan’s cliffhanger victim, though the characters themselves have new reason to kneel. Khary Payton has officially joined the Season 7 cast in the role of “King” Ezekiel, a fan-favorite comic character with a fiercely protective companion.
It’s still unclear how exactly The Walking Dead intends to keep Negan’s victim a secret through months of trailers and set photos into the October premiere, but even then, Season 7 may not deliver its key revelation right away. Executive producer Greg Nicotero teases a unique structure to the premiere, which itself will be smaller in scale than Season 6.
However The Walking Dead chooses to address its big cliffhanger from Comic-Con 2016, we at least know Morgan and Carol remain safe, and en route to their new armored friends’ mystery camp. A new photo from Season 7 seemingly confirms as much, but is this our first official look at comic locale “The Kingdom”?
If perhaps you worried that The Walking Dead Season 7 promotional tour might remain as mercilessly teasing as the finale itself, sorry to be the bearer of bad news. In addition to the first, familiar-seeming photo, the official Comic-Con 2016 key art for Season 7 teases … well, another very familiar sight.
