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.
The casting of any given Walking Dead star on another series is usually an ominous portent of things to come, as we expected of Corey Hawkins after joining FOX’s 24: Legacy. Season 7 surprisingly took a different route with Heath’s fate, for which the actor claims AMC and FOX are negotiating a return appearance in the future.
The Walking Dead isn’t generally known for post-credits scenes (few shows place them literally after the credits anyway), so you’d be forgiven to have missed the midseason finale “Hearts Still Beating” stinger. Come, join our wild speculation about those mysterious boots with a closer look at AMC’s official debut of the scene online.
Whatever turns The Walking Dead may take, be they comic or TV, both mediums tend to lean on Carl as enduring hope for the future. Former series star Michael Rooker subscribes to that theory as well, pitching his own trippy twist for how the series should end a few years down the line.
The Walking Dead Season 7 may have taken a full eight episodes to get Rick raring to fight back against Negan, but the latter half isn’t wasting any time forging alliances. Our first clip from the 2017 premiere sees Jesus proposing an unorthodox, but kingly solution to the new rebellion’s shortage of soldiers.
It only took half a season, but The Walking Dead is finally ready to “Rise Up” against Negan and the Saviors when the AMC horror flagship returns in 2017. Following last night’s trailer, The Walking Dead is seeing red in the first Season 7B key art, while Robert Kirkman teases the mystery man (or woman) spying on Alexandria in the post-credits.
‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 proves it can get “Hearts Still Beating” in a bloody midseason close, but is Rick finally ready to fight back after two more needlessly cruel deaths? And who’s that mystery man spying on Alexandria from afar? Find out in our full review!
The Walking Dead pulled few punches with 2016 closer “Hearts Still Beating,” but we’ll have to wait until 2017 to see Rick and co. finally standing up to Negan. Our first trailer for the 2017 return has arrived, as everyone from Alexandria, to The Kingdom to Hilltop finally prepares to strike back against the Saviors.
