AMC have released new stills and character posters from the highly-anticipated second half of ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7, which returns on Sunday, February 12 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Check it out!
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have new stills that teases a new character, group and location. Here’s what showrunner Scott M. Gimple had to say about the new character, “I’m just going to say that Rick is going to meet this person and/or persons pretty quickly. The answers are just around the heap. I cannot wait for people to meet this character and to see this actor. There is some formidable fun coming up.”
In the second half of the season, executive producer Greg Nicotero on some of the upcoming walkers, “I think one of the most ingenious walkers is coming up in the second half,” says Nicotero. “It’s something that we’ve never done before. The minute that you see it, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.”
“All that she does now is about who she loves and it’s about this community,” says Danai Gurira. “So, even that rage and that desire to get back at Negan was all rooted in the love for these people, and the horrific loses that they just experienced, and how it’s just not in her nature to just take that and say, ‘Okay, I’ll now submit to you because you’ve got us really good.’ No. No. That’s not who she is.”
Synopsis for the second half of Season 7:
The first half of Season 7 saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group broken by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), forced to fall under his will and brutally convinced to live under his rules. The second half of the season will focus on preparing for war and gathering the supplies and numbers to take Negan down once and for all.
Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose – to defeat Negan – it won’t come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable. We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before.
We’ll see treachery from people we trust. Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.
