The Walking Dead returns to the small screen on February 12th and the AMC gang has a lot of make-up work to do in order to ensure their viewer tallies return to the inclining column. We’re seeing a new trailer that’s airing as part of the promotional campaign, and it looks much more entertaining than the bulk of the first half of season seven. You take a peek at the video below if you need a bit more assurance.
Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are among the many familiar faces returning to the apocalyptic wasteland fans have come to adore.
Here’s the season seven breakdown:
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.
