Today, The Walking Dead released images for the forthcoming second half of season seven. In the images, you can see Rick and the gang in a meeting, on a walk in the woods and talking in front of a wall. There’s not much in the way of plot or narrative, but fortunately, AMC also saw fit to share an official synopsis, which you’ll find along with those photos below.
The last time we left Rick and the Capable Cabal (a most excellent band name, if this whole escaping the end of the world thing pans out), he was in a pretty tight spot. Caught under Negan’s thumb and unsure of where to turn, things seemed pretty dire for Grimes and the gang. But it seems that, as always, he’s got a plan to usurp his oppressors and get the band back together again. Or something.
The Walking Dead
returns to Sunday nights at AMC on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 9 p.m EST. Check out the new photos (click to enlarge) and official synopsis below.
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.
