“The Walking Dead” returns on Sunday, February 12, for the back half of its seventh season, and AMC has released three new teaser images and an official synopsis for the upcoming episodes. See Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) above, and two more intriguing cast images below.
The first half of season seven brought Rick and his community of survivors to their breaking point after encountering a sadistic foe they couldn’t defeat, the baseball bat-wielding Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his army of “Saviors.” In December’s mid-season finale, “Hearts Still Beating,” Negan and his followers take the lives of two more members of Rick’s group: Spencer (Austin Nichols), who unsuccessfully tried to usurp Rick as leader, and Olivia (Ann Mahoney), as retaliation following an attempt against Negan’s life.
Motivated by continued bloodshed and terrorism, our heroes are preparing for war when the show returns from its hiatus, but if Rick is going to defeat Negan he’s going to need help from the Kingdom community, led by Ezekiel (Khary Payton), and the Hilltop colony, led by Gregory (Xander Berkeley). He’s also going to need weapons, food and new fighters to join their cause.
Who do you think will make it out alive after Rick and his allies take on Negan and the Saviors? Check out AMC’s preview images below, and make sure to discuss this series and more in our TV forum.
