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.
The fact that Image Comics is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year has made me feel so old that I'm worried about just deteriorating into a vaguely person-shaped pile of dust any second now, but there's one thing that's really helping to take the sting out of it: An amazing roster of variant covers where current image titles like Sex Criminals, The Wicked + the Divine, The Walking Dead, and Invincible homage the classic first issues from throughout the company's history, like, uh, Sex Criminals, The Wicked + the Divine, The Walking Dead, and Invincible.
If you want to find some of the most villainous villains in comics, you can't quite beat Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard's long-running zombie epic The Walking Dead. When it comes to enemies and antagonist, the zombies are the last thing the survivors need to worry about, but we want to hear from you to find out which one is the worst of the worst.
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.
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.
